by Paul Metcalf

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller Sakizuke: an appetizer similar to the French amuse-bouche. Not so long ago, (okay, a REALLY long time ago) a friend and I had an argument about the actors who have played Hannibal Lector. I was staunchly opposed to his declarations that […]

Hannibal 1×05 – “Coquilles” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller ‘Coquilles’ is an outstanding hour of television. It’s equal parts horrifying and heart-wrenching while mixing in a dark standalone story. It’s a cocktail that Hannibal seems to have down pat and this episode is absolutely no exception. It skirts the plot of Abigail Hobbes […]
