The Best Thing about Tonight’s Hannibal – The Strike Back Guys Are Hitting NBC, One by One.

I had a really difficult time watching tonight’s episode – until the end. The fight was good – but what are these people thinking? Pazzi walked right into it ( and I liked him). Mason Verger – is it possible to be more of a pig this season than last? Jack Crawford – has his chance and doesn’t finish Hannibal off? Is Hannibal even killable?

But I found the commercials Okay.

in a strange coincidence, in the same order as they appeared in Strike Back, the new and the old (origins and T & A).

Look who’s coming to NBC, one first, and two together:

Sigh. And guess which one dies first?

  1. That’s a very interesting coincidence! But then, the number of network is limited, while many actors will work on the same long running show. Those off the show will actively look for new work. I bet the odds of something like this happening are much much higher than winning the lottery, and somebody always wins the lottery.

  3. I hope the Red Dragon part will be significantly better than the first few episodes. Either way I will watch RA parts because I have to. I have to. I have to.

    • Just watched the last episode. I quite like the last 2 episodes, especially the last one. It’s definitely getting better.

      • Can’t agree, except for a few scenes. But I think the Red Dragon episodes will be more to my taste ( no pun there). I’m finding that the characters now are taking improbable actions ( except Hannibal – who’s growing on me more).

  4. I liked this 5th episode better than all but the first one of S3. It wasn’t so slow, and I liked the Hannibal/Bedelia and Hannibal/Jack interactions. I agree with you that there are some improbable actions. Pozzi was incredibly stupid, and ought to have known better. And I don’t understand the need for finger prints? That was seemingly contrived to force another meeting. Alana is unrecognizable. I find Chiyo’s delivery so flat, and her actions make no sense whatsoever. But I still found things to like in this episode.
