072: A Foretaste of Hannibal Season 3

SPOILERS FOR HANNIBAL SEASONS 1 & 2 (as well as promotional materials for Season 3)

In this episode:
  • We're back! Everything is better!
  • Except for Bedelia. Everything is not going to be better for her.
  • We discuss what's to come in Hannibal Season 3, including Hannibal and Bedelia in Europe, the Red Dragon storyline, and the fates of various characters.
  • Hannibal and body horror and you
  • Freddie Lounds (what fourth wall?) interviewed Bryan Fuller about the upcoming season!
  • The amazing comments from NBC's Standards and Practices concerning an upcoming sex scene
  • Characters and actors coming in this season: Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, Rutina Wesley as Reba McClane, and Nina Arianda as Molly Graham
  • ALSO: Ian released an EP of songs inspired by some of the shows discussed here on the podcast, including Hannibal and Constantine! Check it out!
  • Cleo has, in fact, been Storfying new promo materials and such. Here's what she collected for May.
  • Notes from Fio:
    • The notion of a show creatively doing whatever the hell they feel like would give us pause on another series but in Hannibal’s case it makes us excited which has nothing to do with the fact that we’re fanboys waaaaaaaaay too close to offer objective criticism of the show at all. (To clarify, I think we offer some pretty great crit on the show, but it is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar afield from objective.)
    • We’re starting BowieTruther Watch as soon as the show begins
    • A Matter of Scheduling is going to be our much less popular pre-show podcast.
      • I’m kidding of course, we can barely get this one out on time, how the hell would we swing a pre-podcast podcast.
    • As far as the differences between the back tattoos go, we should also mention that while the Fiennes Dolarhyde did have horns, the emphasis was on the wings, whereas the Armitage Dolarhyde seems to be using the horns in particular to emphasize his shoulderblades.
    • A Matter of Taste Advice: You should always be wary of people trying to get you to eat a lot of oysters, both Game of Thrones and Hannibal are now warning us of this.
    • I know you probably want to claim it, but I’m calling dibs on The Darkened Sideboob as my spinoff podcast. (Note from Ian: Keep an eye out for my upcoming essay, Claiming the Darkened Sideboob, a meditation on NBC's standards and practices)
    • We should actually think about the time travel mechanics work in Outlander and whether or not Claire telling this dude the date of his death will change history and cause it not to happen.
  • "Vide Cor Meum" - Patrick Cassidy and Hans Zimmer | YouTube | iTunes |
  • "This is My Design" and "Iodine" - Ian Doherty | SoundCloud | Bandcamp (JUST RELEASED!) |
