2019 - Hannibal: season two
I'm all caught up! Which sucks, 'cause my reward is having to wait and watch s-l-o-w-l-y upon the shows return. I have to say, I liked the first season better than this one. To explain why I'll have to get into some SPOILERS... so beware of the below...
I guess my concern is with the idea of having Will Graham ride the line - from a long-game perspective I suppose I get it - we want to know if he'll head over to the dark side or not and we want to draw that out as long as possible. I guess, for me, I'm excited to see this play into the established stories of Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs and, I suppose, Hannibal itself (although feel free to re-imagine that one all you want!). The introduction of Michael Pitt and Katherine Isabel as the Vergers was pretty damn delightful, and I hope that storyline comes back down the line as it's meant to.
This season ended on a pretty great cliffhanger that allows the show to reboot when it returns next year, which I think is what will help keep it interesting and alive. It's a new chapter and so changes need to happen. I'll be there for sure.
