♪♫♬♩ Hannibal, oh Hannibal — where did you go? Hannibal, Hannibal, your murder madness makes for a very good show! ♪♫♬♩
America, if you’re not familiar with and/or already addicted to NBC and Bryan Fuller’s horrific (in the best way) masterclass in visceral, artistic psychological brilliance — also known as Hannibal — now may just be the time to get on board. Because, as this new teaser trailer so states, it is the best of the best. (As Tina Turner would probably posit, “better than all the rest!”)
And after last season’s total frickin’ bloodbath of a finale and escape of Mr. Lecter, lovers of television, people-as-food, visual brilliance, and total batshit creepery need to get on board this train before it pulls out of the station. As it stands, no one knows who will live or die after Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen)’s revealing betrayal of all of those close to him. Heck, we don’t even know if half the cast is still alive.
That’s not even taking into consideration just how brilliant Hugh Dancy is as Will Graham, the FBI’s most brilliantly disturbed serial killer profiler, what with his heightened empathetic understanding of how their minds and motives work. Honestly, there’s really nothing better.
Which is exactly why we’re imploring you to tune into this show. It’s more disturbing and bloody and beautiful than anything we’ve seen on cable television (really! Yes including Game of Thrones and True Detective). Besides, who doesn’t want to see Bryan Fuller’s brand of whimsy tasked with telling such a dark tale?
Basically: EVERYONE IN THE WORLD SHOULD JUST WATCH HANNIBAL ALREADY.
Are you excited for Hannibal‘s Thursday June 4th return? Let us hear it in the comments.
