Hannibal Season 3 Episode 5 Review – ‘Contorno’

3 July 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the fifth episode of Hannibal season 3…

After all the set up so far this season, the endgame of Hannibal Lecter’s time in Florence has begun as multiple characters converged on the city in a big way. Things escalated very quickly for nearly every single character; no one was sitting on the sidelines anymore in ‘Contorno’.

While there was little movement on Will Graham’s front, he learnt a little bit more about Hannibal and Chiyo’s past. Building off last week’s extended flashback and even his introduction to Chiyo, there was a lot of emphasis placed once again on what exactly Will plans to do once he catches Hannibal. He admitted to Jack last week he warned Hannibal of his impending capture because he not only wanted the doctor to run, but wished to leave with him too. After some digging, Chiyo concluded Will wants »

"Hannibal" Review & Recap: Season 3, Episode 5, "Contorno"

3 July 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Mads Mikkelsen in "Hannibal"Photo: NBC Wait... so she really did throw him from the trainc The fifth episode of this third season of "Hannibal", titled "Contorno", was a weird one for me. For one I appreciate the fact we're all caught up, but at the same time I don't feel as if aspects of what we're dealing with entirely work. That said, once Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) gets rolling it's impossible to say anything negative about this show, as you'd much rather just sit back and watch. This week's episode begins with Will (Hugh Dancy) and Chiyo (Tao Okamoto) heading to Florence to hunt Hannibal. Their scenes are overly dramatic and begin spelling things out we are already more than aware of. Chiyo says to Will, "If you don't kill him, you are worried you are going to become him." Is anyone not clear on this yetc In fact, scratch that, »

"Hannibal" Review & Recap: Season 3, Episode 4, "Apertivo"

26 June 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Gina Torres and Lawrence Fishburne in "Hannibal"Photo: Brooke Palmer / NBC It felt like tonight's episode of "Hannibal" would have been better served as the first or second episode in the season, not the fourth as most everything it covered was pretty much well established to this point. It wasn't a bad episode by any means, it merely seemed to stop the season in its tracks. Perhaps, however, that's a good thing, offering anyone that wasn't up-to-date a chance to play catch up while offering fans (or #Fannibals as has become the popular Twitter hashtag following the show's cancellation at NBC) an emotionally charged episode as Jack (Lawrence Fishburne) finally must say goodbye to Bella (Gina Torres) and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) makes a strong first appearance in this third season. Serving as a prequel to everything that's taken place so far this year, the fourth episode of this third season, »

"Hannibal" Review & Recap: Season 3, Episode 3, "Secondo"

18 June 2015 8:45 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Mads Mikkelsen in "Hannibal"Photo: Brooke Palmer / NBC I can't be certain on this, but was last week's episode the first episode of "Hannibal" to not include someone's deathc I only ask because this week's episode, titled "Secondo" made up for that missing aspect of last week's episode as not one, but two characters find themselves on the wrong side of pointy objects. This marks the third episode of this third season to be directed by Vincenzo Natali and he's toned down his visual flair here, though he's still fond of reflections, be they in knives or liquid, using them to move from one scene to the next. Though, can we all agree the best scene transition was from the cutting of a bird's leg to the chopping of a human hand as Hannibal prepares the forearm of the late professor Sogliato (Rinaldo Rocco) into a delectable carpaccio(c) to »

Hannibal season 3 episode 2 review: Primavera

17 June 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bryan Fuller is a master of sleight of hand, as this thrilling episode of Hannibal season 3 shows...

This review contains spoilers.

3.2 Primavera

Boy, do I love good sleight-of-hand. And this week’s Primavera did it extremely well. But back to that in a moment.

We had been promised in PR materials that we’d learn the fate of those Hannibal butchered back in Baltimore: Jack, Alana, Will, and Abigail. But of course, it would have been unlike the patient Fuller to actually let spill all the secrets at once, so for now, narratively speaking, the status of Jack and Alana remains a mystery. Although, since we know both Lawrence Fishburne and Caroline Dhavernas are regulars this third season, it’s doubtful that either is dead—though Primavera does suggest an interesting alternate possibility for the return of Alana’s character. But what we do know is that Will and Abigail survived the attack. »

"Hannibal" Review & Recap: Season 3, Episode 2, "Primavera"

11 June 2015 9:01 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last week's season three premiere episode of "Hannibal" ended with the image of what appeared to be Anthony Dimmond's bloody torso on display opposite the imagery of Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) folding Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man into the shape of a human heart. In the second episode of season three, titled "Primavera", we get a closer look at what exactly Hannibal has done as Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) arrives in Italy, for reasons, and argue, even he isn't entirely sure of. But I don't want to get too far ahead, let's circle back to the very beginning of the episode. "Primavera" dedicates it's first seven-and-a-half minutes to the season two finale, after which we find Will in the hospital, presumably four months or so after the bloody events that took place at Hannibal's and I have to admit, as soon as I saw Abigail (Kacey Rohl) walk into »

Hannibal season 3 episode 1 review: Antipasto

9 June 2015 11:14 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hannibal is back with a glorious new episode. Here's Laura's review of Antipasto...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 Antipasto

Just like every other devotee to Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal, I’ve spent the 12+ months since its last episode trying to convince everyone I know to watch the show. The reasons for this are many.

First, frankly, it is, quite simply, an amazing piece of cinema. Yes, I know it’s on television, but trust me, it might as well be on the silver screen at a film festival for the level of auteuritsm on display. If you aren’t watching, you’re missing out.

Second, many people don’t watch because they are convinced that the show is nothing but an excuse to bring more violence to television. And I am not going to pretend that the show isn’t violent. The season finale last year was nothing less than »

Hannibal: Bryan Fuller Talks Season 3, the Red Dragon, and More

4 June 2015 10:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After the shocking events of the Season 2 finale, that left the fans and characters reeling, the dark and haunting NBC series Hannibal is back for its third highly anticipated season. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe with his psychiatrist, Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), and although he has a new identity, he is still the same very dangerous man. And as the lives of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) lead them on the path toward Hannibal again, you will learn that each of them have their own motivations to catch him, once and for all.

Hannibal Season 3 Premiere Recap: It’s Not That Kind of Party

4 June 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Previously on Hannibal ... At the end of Hannibal’s sensationally sordid season-two finale, “Mizumono,” the good Doctor Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) left his best friend Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) filleted and bleeding on the floor; Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) nursing a punctured neck in the pantry; Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) shattered on the sidewalk; and the thought-to-be-dead Abigail Hobbs (Kacey Rohl), whose purported death has haunted Will incessantly, split from ear to ear. Series creator Bryan Fuller was unsure if Hannibal would be picked up for a third season — its ratings are subpar, to put it kindly — so he and Steve Lightfoot (one of the great current TV-writing duos) penned a series finale that has as many slit throats as it does loose ends. Had Hannibal been canceled, the most lugubrious show of the last 20 years would have left us with the most ferociously violent series finale to ever appear »

"Hannibal" Review & Recap: Season 3 Premiere, "Antipasto"

4 June 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Mads Mikkelsen in "Hannibal"Photo: Brooke Palmer / NBC The season three premiere of "Hannibal", titled "Antipasto" is exactly what you'd expect based on that title, an appetizer (albeit an explosive one), teasing you for the main meal of what is the venture into all new territory for the dark and murderous series. When we last left the story, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) walked out his front door on a dark and rainy night, the victor (depending on how you look at it) in a bloody battle. Jack (Lawrence Fishburne) was left bleeding out in the pantry, Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) seemingly paralyzed after being pushed from Hannibal's upstairs window and a severely injured Will (Hugh Dancy) was gasping for breath, staring at the corpse of Abigail Hobbs (Kacey Rohl). And just before the season two finale came to an end we see Hannibal and Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) aboard a plane flying to Europe. »

‘Hannibal’ Showrunner Bryan Fuller Says Season 3 is the ‘Series I’ve Always Wanted To Make’

4 June 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC’s beautiful and brutal “Hannibal” returns for for its third season on June 4, in which we find our titular cannibal (played with charismatic menace by Mads Mikkelsen) cutting a bloody — if cultured — swath through the opulent palazzos of Italy with his former therapist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson). The pair are hiding in plain sight following Hannibal’s vicious and potentially deadly encounter with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) in the season two finale, and Dr. Lecter certainly isn’t making any secret of his singular tastes now that he’s escaped the FBI’s clutches.

Variety talked to “Hannibal” executive producer and showrunner Bryan Fuller ahead of Thursday’s premiere, discussing everything from the show’s shift in tone to its loyal fanbase to the ongoing debate about sexual violence on television. Below, Fuller explains why “the third season is »

Review: 'Hannibal' has plenty of nightmare fuel ready for season 3

3 June 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The visual language of "Hannibal" has grown increasingly more abstract and dreamlike as the series has gone on. As the show and its central characters get ever closer to the iconic serial killer, the less their realities seem to be governed by basic laws of either narrative logic or physics. When you are in with Hannibal Lecter, you are in a waking nightmare, where everything seems like it should exist only in the darkest corners of imagination, but is instead somehow horrifyingly real. It's a stylistic shift that's benefited the show, and also one that neatly captures the feeling of watching it and being aware that it airs on NBC (where the third season debuts tomorrow night at 10). Surely, the idea of a series this graphic and disgusting airing on a traditional broadcast network, with all the FCC regulations and Standards and Practices executives involved, must be a dream. Or maybe it's a prank, »
