043: Hannibal 2x13 "Mizumono" - It Was Weirdly Upsetting


In this episode:
  • Cleolinda Jones returns!
  • we can all sob together.
  • Discussion of Hannibal 2x13 "Mizumono," including why, God, why.
  • From Fio: "So much of this episode is just us commiserating via emotional vomit cleansing."
  • Blood. So much blood.
  • srsly why.
  • what's even the point of description bullets.
  • Life advice: If you hear the theremin, just stay downstairs.
  • The AV Club Interview with Bryan Fuller for "Mizumono" 
  • This is My Design eyeshadow collection from Aromaleigh
  • As we said on the episode: Between now and the fall, we'll be covering general horror topics (and possibly more movies!). Let us know here or through one of the ways listed in our sidebar if there's anything in particular you want us to discuss.  
  • You can expect the next episode of A Matter of Taste in two weeks' time on Thursday, June 12. Prospective topic: Horror video games.
  • The song from Inception is "Non, je ne regrette rien" by Édith Piaf
  • "Dear Sister," the SNL (Lonely Island) sketch I reference which features "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap
  • Despite us backtracking through the episode several times, we managed to completely gloss over the scene between Bella and Hannibal this episode where they talk about forgiveness. Will you forgive us?
  • Highlights from Fio's timestamps:
    • 19:46 - “At the Breakfast Dinner Table” is like a lighthearted palate cleanser version of our podcast
    • 46:26 - Price and Zeller’s Bed and Breakfast spin off is my dearest dream and I refuse to let it die.
    • 48:03 - Hah hah. Yes, fifteen other serial killers living in Baltimore who are not me, not at all even a little bit in any way shape or form. Hah hah. Cleo, you kidder, you slay me, which is entirely different from the way that I, a normal human creature, interact with other people. Hah.
    • Opening: "Sirens - Air Raid Siren - CU - Rise, Steady, Fall"-
    • Intro: "This is My Design" - original song, music by Ian. More on this as it develops.
    • Outro: "Mosquito Song" - Queens of the Stone Age | YouTube | iTunes |

    1. I hope when Will is institutionalized for depression we get a vision of the Ravenstag decomposing in fast-motion a la "A Zed and Two Noughts". The show has a number of affinities with Greenaway's work.

      Alana went upstairs because she knew she had another clip to load and wanted to save Jack.

      1. Good to see someone on youtube has compiled a lot of the time-lapse decay scenes together (plus the snail finale), set to an appropriately speedy Nyman track. Although to be honest I greatly preferred the score to "Drowning by Numbers". And to pre-empt, no I have not seen Greenaway's cannibalism movie.

    2. Since you guys mentioned ideas for podcast topics during the hiatus, you guys could always do the movie King Arthur in which Mads and Hugh both have supporting roles. I personally find it deeply ironic that Hugh played Galahad, who has traditionally been the "pure-hearted" knight while Mad played Tristan the proverbial "homewrecker". Another suggestion would be to just generally discuss other movies they've each done.

    3. I think the catching Abigail wither her hand in the candy jar could be like Hansel and Gretel, with the candy being a lure to keep her under Hannibal's control.
