Hannibal: Mizumono Review (Article) - 5/27/2014 6:59:57 AM

I too was impressed.   Great episode of a great show.  So who survives beside Will?  I can see them killing both Jack and Alanna off, even though the characters are around in the books later on.  I think Jack will probably survive, and Alanna is toast.

Game of Thrones: The Laws of Gods and Men Review (Article) - 5/12/2014 9:44:10 AM

I hope they have the next "phase" of Tyrion's trial next week, but I'm guessing its probably two weeks away. 

Minor irritant that has stood out the past couple weeks.  In season one, they dyed the actress playing Dany's eyebrows to match her wig.  I know its been awhile since they stopped doing it but it has stood out to me more recently.  Is it really that hard to dye them and wash out the dye at the end of filming?  No temporary dyes?  It's weird seeing dark brown eyebrows and that platinum hair together. 

Hannibal: Ko No Mono Review (Article) - 5/12/2014 9:29:55 AM

I think Will and Jack have to be very very careful on who they let in on their plans.   Hannibal is just too perceptive for most to be able to fool him.   In fact, he probably is already on to Alana just from the gun powder he smelled.  She did give a good reason, but Hannibal seems to be able to think a few moves ahead so to speak.  

I would imagine the rest of Jack's crew were dealing with falsefied dental records and thought they really were performing an autopsy of Freddie Loundes. 

As soon as Margot was pregnant with Will's child, I was waiting for either an abortion or a violent act to terminate the pregnancy.  We didn't have to wait long for that to happen. 

This was a pretty good episode and I am looking forward to the next.

Also, there is good news in that Hannibal has been renewed for a season three despite sub par ratings.    I wonder if Jack is going to survive his showdown with Hannibal.  I know the character is around later in the books, but they are doing thier own thing on the show so who knows.

Hannibal: Naka-Choko Review (Article) - 5/6/2014 7:39:04 AM

Not sure if I like the path they are taking Will down.  I have to believe that it is partly a trap to catch Hannibal, too many fishing and bait references early in the season for it not to be.  On the flip side, since we get flashes of Will's thoughts, the darkness is there in him.  If it is all a trap to catch Hannibal, it is pretty extreame, I mean most likely Will (or someone else if he has conspirators like Jack) cut up that kid and staged the body.  I'm also pretty sure Will ate human, it looked like loins (runs along the spine) to me, not liver.  

Of course I agree that Will did not kill Freddie.  She is either a temporary prisoner, or has become a willing participant in Will Hannibal trap.   If Lounds is willing to help its because also wants to see Abigail's killer caught, but Will may have had to bribe her with exclusive stories/interviews. 

Alanna Bloom, totally inconsistant character or expertly manipulated by Hannibal?  Probably both in my mind.  I think they had her flip flop a little too much.   

I'm a little put off by the scene from next week where they showed that burning wheel chair.  Being as the only book in the series I read was Red Dragon, I was kind of hoping they would save that for a future season.   Though I don't believe it is Freddie in the chair.   I do like how they have thrown in the line/phrase "Becoming" which was Francis Dolarhyde's phrase. 

24: Live Another Day: 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Review (Article) - 5/6/2014 7:19:01 AM

I'm torn, I want to watch now, but I also like binging 24 because they always seem to leave each ep on a cliff hanger.   So far its on the DVR, but I probably will end up watching a few episodes in. 

Game of Thrones: First of His Name Review (Article) - 5/5/2014 10:40:46 AM

@lusipher

That character Locke was in season 3 previously.  He was one of Roose Bolton's  men, I believe he led the group that captured Jaime and Breanne when they were sword fighting on that bridge.  I don't remember if the character was in the books or not.   I also don't recal the show showing us what led him to the Wall.  

GAME OF THRONES: OATHKEEPER Review (Article) - 4/28/2014 2:16:36 PM

@invisioner  INCLUDES SPOILERS steer clear, I’ll even make the font small to help hide.

 

What I think they screwed up is the fact that Jon now knows Bran is alive. That will come to play in Stannis’ offer later on.   I also am positive they are going to combine Ygritte’s and Val.  They have Stannis without an army right now, so how is he going to go to the Wall?  I assume they will replace the battle they must have at Craster’s with the ones at the Wall.  I was hoping to see Coldhands, to see if possibly it resembled Benjen.

“Hey, listen books, I think I’m gonna do my own thing for a while.  We can still get together and stuff, but I need follow my own path,” said the show.   There were so many changes from the source material in this episode.   Some of them are pretty major departure that seem like they would change plot points.   Every book reader was probably just as surprised with that ending scene with the Others and the extra Craster baby.    We’ve seen more of the Others in the show than we have in the books.   I have to say, I’m not a fan of all the changes, but I am interested to see where they are going.

Hannibal: Shiizakana Review (Article) - 4/28/2014 7:09:02 AM

Oh and what's odd, is that my biggest worry in the episode was that the animal suit killer was going to kill all of Will's dogs.   People getting killed, par for the course on the show, but the dogs get threatened and I get nervous.

Hannibal: Shiizakana Review (Article) - 4/28/2014 7:07:01 AM

I knew from the previews last week, that it was a guy in a "suit" right away, since I think they flashed a clear image of him in it in preview.   I will say, he was a little too agile and quiet jumping up on that semi wearing his suit.  However, I forgive a good show a lot of small logic gaps like that.

Overall this ep was just ok to me, I don't think it was bad but it didn't stand out from some of the others.  

I'm going to have to revise my thoughts from the last episode.   I guess Will really was going to shoot the social worker last week without premeditations of "baiting" Hannibal at all.   It makes me wonder if Will's extreme empathy and proximity to Hannibal is what is escalating his "darker" thoughts.    If Hannibal was removed as an influence would he stop having murderous thoughts?

I'm also ready for an update on Chilton and Miriam Lass.   I know Chilton appears dead, but the fact that they haven't mentioned him nor was he dead in the books, makes me wonder.
