With the summer winding down, a new batch of TV shows are reaching their finales, giving us plenty to discuss on the podcast. First we take a look at the week in comedy, including the series finale of Wilfred. Next up is reality, with some Top Chef Duels talk as well as our regular Sytycd breakdown. After that, we talk genre, including a preview of BBC America’s upcoming Intruders, and then we break down a very full and very emotional week in drama, including intense episodes of Rectify and Masters of Sex, as well as the pilot for Legends. Afterward, instead of the DVD Shelf, it’s one more week of Comic Con coverage.
In our final week of Sdcc audio, Kate, along with other Comic-Con press including Jason Griffin »

Here at Dread Central we love "Hannibal." Honestly, I still think we don't deserve a show as good as it is! If you haven't watched it, please rectify that situation Immediately, if not sooner. With Season 2 about to come home, you have no excuse. Speaking of which...
From the Press Release

Based on the characters and elements appearing in the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, Hannibal, from Gaumont International Television in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks, stars Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt) as the iconic Hannibal Lecter, »

The TV show Hannibal, now entering season 3, is disturbing and fascinating and disgusting and beautiful and horrifying (depending on the scene), which is probably why I can’t stop watching it! And it’s certainly full of surprises as well. Based on the Thomas Harris novels, Bryan Fuller has called his team’s take on the character and stories a “mash-up,” which I like because it means they can revisit old material but still give it new twists.
At San Diego Comic-Con this year, I got to learn about some of the upcoming twists and turns at the aptly named “Hannibal Pannibal,” and at the cast and crew interviews afterwards. And now, I get to share all of that with you!

Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to meet with some of the cast and crew of NBC’s Hannibal during Comic-Con. With the showdown at the end of Season 2 leaving viewers anxious for more episodes, Hannibal’s producers shed some light on their plans for Season 3, including the return of a familiar face that we had previously assumed to be dead.
Warning: These interviews contain major spoilers if you have not already seen the Season 2 Finale.
Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy were unfortunately unable to attend Comic-Con this year. Nonetheless, many individuals involved with the show made an appearance, including director David Slade, executive producer Martha DeLaurentiis, writer Steve Lightfoot, show creator and writer Bryan Fuller, Caroline Dhavernas (Dr. Alana Bloom), Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price), and surprise panel guest Raúl Esparza (Dr. Chilton).
On directing the Season 2 finale:

Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) relationship features significant homoerotic subtext on NBC’s Hannibal. While some involved in the project shrug off the gay undertones, others acknowledge that something does seem to be going on between the two characters.
Is Hannibal Lecter Gay?
Actor Scott Thompson, who plays Jimmy Price on Hannibal, thinks it’s perfectly possibly that things could turn overtly sexual between Lecter and Graham. Putting himself in their shoes, Thompson, who is openly gay, can empathize with the idea of someone consenting to sex with a person not of their preferred gender.
“Most people just need a little nudge into [a] sexuality that’s not in their world. And I think everybody probably have someone that’s the wrong gender that they could have sex with,” Thompson told uInterview, explaining, “You know, if Michelle Rodriguez came at me with a strap on I might go, »
Hannibal might be one of the more serious dramas on TV, but the cast and crew apparently have much to laugh about while filming the NBC horror series.
'Hannibal' Gag Reel
Mads Mikkelson (Dr. Hannibal Lecter), Hugh Dancy (Will Graham), Caroline Dhavernas (Dr. Alana Bloom) and Laurence Fishburne (Jack Crawford) are all featured to the gag reel from Hannibal’s dark sophomore season.
While Mikkelson’s Dr. Lector is all about precision and high standards, the actor himself apparently struggles with the task of tying a tie. After stumbling with the accessory, Mikkelson also had trouble pulling a suit vest on. Gillian Anderson, who will be a series regular for season 3, also had trouble with an accessory, repeatedly losing a mic down the front of her dress.
Some of the most disturbing scenes to watch on Hannibal center around the cannibalistic epicurean’s dinner table, on which his »
"Hannibal" stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen couldn't make it to Comic-Con this year, but the bulk of the show's supporting cast — including Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, and surprise returnee Raul Esparza — were able to be in San Diego, and I got a chance to sit down with the four of them the morning after their lively Comic-Con panel. We talked about the unexpected reprieve for Esparza's Dr. Chilton, the "Hannibal" supporting player trap of being more in danger the more you're given to do, how the show will look with Price and Zeller as the only completely healthy good guy characters left, and a lot more. »

If you haven’t watch the best show on network television, NBC’s Hannibal, you should stop reading. Also, what the hell is wrong with you?
On Wednesday, creator Bryan Fuller revealed some shocking news on how the third season will unfold during a Comic Con panel. Where last we left the serial killer genre’s most notorious cannibal, he disappeared into the rain after leaving a bloodbath in his luscious house. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) was nearly gutted. Jack Crawford (Lawrence Fishburne) was in a wine cellar with an ice pick in the jugular, and Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) was bleeding out after being thrown from a second-story window.
Here are some key points, as reported by The Av Club.
- The season will take place a year after the incidents of season two.

Fans of NBC’s Hannibal--or fannibals, as they call themselves--came out in force at Comic-Con to support the dark, artsy drama, wearing flower crowns, black stag costumes and masks of the characters’ faces. Creator Bryan Fuller rewarded them with some juicy morsels about what (or who) his team of writers are cooking up for Season 3, including some new characters directly from the Thomas Harris novels on which the series is based. Moderated by British TV host Jonathan Ross, the panel kicked off with a montage of footage from the past season, including scenes the gut-wrenching finale, which left the fates of many of the characters up in the air. Cast members Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price) and Caroline Dhavernas (Alana Bloom) joined Fuller, director David Slade and executive producers Steven Lightfoot and Martha De Laurentiis on stage. We’ll serve up all the highlights from the panel after the jump. »

New characters and a new direction are promised in San Diego but what we really want to see is showrunner Bryan Fuller's fantasy musical episode
Spoiler Alert: this contains discussion of Hannibal, season two. Do not read if you have not seen the entire season.
Following its renewal just prior to the epic finale of season two, the cast and crew of Hannibal held court at Comic-Con on Thursday. The panel, hosted by Jonathan Ross, was informal, and spilled a surprising amount of beans on season three. While Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne were not in attendance (Mikkelsen and Dancy sent video messages), showrunner Bryan Fuller was joined by a panel including Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams and Raúl Esparza, and wasn't coy in dropping some fairly major hints about where the show is going. Here's what he revealed.

Which explains exactly why Hannibal ended its sophomore run in spectacularly bloody fashion.
Michael Ausiello sat down in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite with the executive producer, fellow Ep Martha De Laurentiis and cast members Caroline Dhavernas, Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson to dish some of Season 2′s most shocking moments: »
NBC’s Hannibal panel at San Diego Comic-Con was a big hit, and provided fans with a lot of details about the upcoming third season. After last season’s finale, which left many of the show’s characters either dead or dying, fans have been chomping at the bit for details about where the show will go from here, who will return, and what showrunner Bryan Fuller will pull from the source material.
Thanks to the various live-bloggers and Twitter users present at the panel, we have a lot of new information to share with you:
First and foremost, the show will pick up a full year from where season 2 left off. Fuller wants to leave details about the finale aftermath ambiguous, meaning the premiere will focus solely on Madds Mikkelsen’s Hannibal and Gillian Anderson’s Dr. Du Maurier.
The fourth episode of the new season will focus on »

NBC’s “Hannibal” took over Ballroom 20 at Comic-Con Thursday, with creator Bryan Fuller, EPs Steven Lightfoot and Martha De Laurentiis, director David Slade and cast members Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson and Aaron Abrams on hand to tease the sure-to-be delectable developments ahead in season three.
Stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy were absent from the panel due to work commitments, but Mikkelsen sent his apologies via video from Denmark, while Dancy recorded a message from Australia, both thanking all the “Fannibals” for their support of the critically-acclaimed drama.

The biggest reveal from the panel? Raul Esparza will be “a huge part of season three” despite his character, Dr. Chilton, being shot in the face in season three. Esparza (who worked with Fuller on “Pushing Daisies”) said that he trusts the writer implicitly, because no matter what kind of awful mishaps befall the twisted psychiatrist, »

Related NBC Execs Talk Hannibal Season 3
As an appetizer, the Ep unveiled a surprise guest who’ll be a “huge part of Season 3”: Raul Esparza, who played the presumed dead Dr. Frederick Chilton. (Eddie Izzard will also return in a flashback.)
“I can’t believe how much people fell in love with Chilton this season,” Esparza effused. “I love playing the part because he’s a total douchebag.”

Based on traditional ratings alone, NBC's "Hannibal" is among the least-watched shows on the traditional broadcast networks. But its reputation among the sorts of fans who come to Comic-Con has grown with each passing year. Two summers ago, it was just one half of a Bryan Fuller-focused panel (which also focused on his attempt to reboot "The Munsters" as "Mockingbird Lane") in a very small room. Last summer, it moved to a slightly bigger room to accommodate Fuller and Hugh Dancy. This year, even without Dancy or Mads Mikkelsen or Laurence Fishburne, "Hannibal" has graduated to the big time, taking over the Convention Center's mammoth Ballroom 20 for a panel subtitled "Embrace the Madness," featuring Fuller, director David Slade, writer/producer Steven Lightfoot, longtime Hannibal Lecter producer Martha DeLaurentiis, and supporting players Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson and Aaron Abrams, and moderated by Jonathan Ross. Given that Dhavernas' Dr. Alana Bloom »
