Roti – Hannibal 110

Sorry this review is only just now coming up. Hopefully the delays that have been plaguing the site will soon come to an end. The Psyborg TV crowd-funding campaign is now up and running and the new site is almost completely built and only waiting on a web host. In the meantime, I will resume regular posting here. And what better way to begin regular posts than with a review of NBC’s Hannibal? Continue reading


What happens when a woman with a severe dissociative illness and skin disease gets loose? This week’s episode of Hannibal is what happens, providing us with yet another gruesomely delightful exploration into the mind of the man that would track down the infamous Hannibal Lecter. Every week, this exploration gets stranger and stranger. Is Special Agent Will Graham going completely insane, or is there something physically wrong with the FBI’s most talented profiler? Continue reading

If Hannibal Lecter is the most prolific serial killer in the world created by Thomas Harris and recently brought to life on the small screen by Bryan Fuller on NBC, then Special Agent Will Graham is the most prolific profiler. Every week he is presented with strange cases, each one not more disturbing than the last, but uniquely disturbing in their own rights. From people being used to fertilize mushrooms and “transformed” into mock angels to being turned into musical instruments and, this week, totem poles. If there is one thing you can count on from this show, it is a continuous stream of disturbing. The perfect prime time show for horror fans the world over. Continue reading

It was hard for me to imagine the Hannibal Lecter story being adapted well for TV. What was even harder to imagine was that a network television station would be able to. However, NBC has surprised me week after week with suspenseful plotting, engaging performances, and disturbing crime scenes. Really, the only thing separating Hannibal from an HBO or Showtime level show is the lack of overly coarse language, nudity, and sex. What did the good doctor have in store for us this week?

The Chesapeake Ripper remains at large after last week’s episode of NBC’s Hannibal and, with so many personal stakes in the case, everyone at the FBI is anxious to catch him. Will Graham, plagued by his uncanny ability to put himself in the mind of the killers he hunts, can’t seem the grasp this one. Therefore, he continuously turns to Hannibal as a means to gain new perspectives and, I suspect, to make sure he is not going completely nuts himself. And Dr. Lecter is always there for him with an ear to listen, some wine to relax, and some discomfort food for the soul. As this series unfolds, tension mounts for us onlookers, especially those of us who know the story behind the show. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

After last week’s episode, we thought it would be hard to make the crime scenes in NBC’s Hannibal any more disturbing. We were wrong. This episode digs into the dark past of Jack Crawford and the case he worked years before the events of the show. It would appear that the Chesapeake Ripper, who was mentioned in last week’s episode, has resurfaced already in custody at a mental hospital. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

Let us first apologize for not putting a post up yesterday. We intended to put this review up last night. However, our roommate was in a scooter accident and ended up with a broken clavicle. He is heavily medicated and doing okay now though. So without any further ado, we continue our weekly reviews of NBC’s Hannibal. Our first review of the pilot was not that great. Last weeks was better though and we are extremely excited as we watch last night’s episode on demand over some liver and faba beans. Here is our recap and review of “Potage”. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

Hannibal – Amuse-Bouche

Click to Watch on Amazon

Last week we reviewed the series premiere of Hannibal, NBC’s new show based on Thomas Harris’ characters. There were several elements to the show that we genuinely enjoyed, but were not overly impressed. However, we have decided to give the show another chance and watch the sophomore episode after reminding ourselves that the first episode of Game of Thrones was not very impressive to us either. And look what that turned into. Thus, we give you our thoughts on episode 2, Amuse-Bouche. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

He’s back. Everybody’s favorite cannibal is on the loose again. Only this time he’s trying to help a young FBI agent troubled by his ability to empathize with killers. This time, Dr. Lecter is played by the Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen (Clash of the Titans, Valhalla Rising, King Arthur). Hugh Dancy (Blood and Chocolate, King Arthur, Blackhawk Down) takes up the role of Special Agent Will Graham. But is this new show from NBC, helmed by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies), the procedural to end all police procedurals? I sincerely hope so; I passed up watching Elementary to watch it. We watched the first episode and below is what we thought. Continue reading
