006: Hannibal 1x10 "Buffet Froid" - Murderfacing Dr. Sutcliffe

SPOILERS UP TO (and including) HANNIBAL 1x10 (as well as Red Dragon/Silence of the Lambs/Hannibal)

In this episode:
  • Hannibal has been renewed! W00T!
  • Our friend Ren (emersonism on Tumblr) gave us a handy-dandy quick guide on how to pronounce the French titles.
  • Discussion of Hannibal 1x10 "Buffet Froid," Georgia and Cotard's Syndrome, Will's continually worsening psychological state (and his encephalitis), Hannibal being the WORST DOUCHEBAG EVER, and Crawford being...less of a dick? Kind of?
  • Theories as to why Hannibal is being the WORST DOUCHEBAG EVER (to Will, at least)
  • Seriously, he's so evil.
  • Masks, and the people who wear them.
  • Extended metaphors aren't bad. They just use them a LOT in this show.
  • We do enjoy our cannibalism puns.
  • Who (of the main characters) is gonna kick it?
  • Other possible episode titles: Magic Crimescene Pendulum Reliving; A Matter of Reputation Preceding Product
  • FURTHER CONTEST DETAILS: 2000 word limit on story submissions; tentative deadline is the end of the season. Email your submissions to amatteroftastepodcast at or post it on Tumblr with the tag #insane hannibal crackfic crossover. Prize info coming soon.
  • The first time I mention Beverly, I call her Barbara. I'M SORRY. I do correct myself later.
  • I gave the wrong hashtag for the contest. The correct one is above.
  • Things we forgot to mention #1: Berlin Confidential posted about us on their Tumblr. Thanks!
  • Things we forgot to mention #2: The Ravenstag - This is a song inspired by Hannibal, written by a fan of the series, haliameguid on Tumblr. It's FUCKING AWESOME. So awesome that the NBC Hannibal Tumblr reblogged it.
  • Something Fio forgot to mention that he wanted to touch on: Female killers in fiction typically seem to be sympathetic or tragic; it's rare that we have one who's really irredeemable. More on this in a future podcast.
