On Eat The Rudecast we review the NBC TV Series Hannibal, the films Manhunter, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, Red Dragon, and Hannibal Rising, and the books by Thomas Harris.
Hannibal S01E01- Apéritif – Eat The Rudecast
We launch, headlong, into the breach and discuss our first encounters with Hannibal Lecter, and then take on the first episode of NBC's Hannibal.
Hannibal S01E02 – Amuse-Bouche – Eat The Rudecast
We gripe about the “killer of the week” CSI aspects of this episode, while praising the dialog exchanges developing between our main characters.
Hannibal S01E03 – Potage – Eat The Rudecast
We return stylistically to the first episode, with returning director David Slade, and spend the entire episode with Abigail Hobbes, resolving her feelings (and possible connection to) her father's murders.
Hannibal S01E04 – Oeuf – Eat The Rudecast
In this difficult to pronounce episode, we finally stray from our scene by scene deconstruction in an attempt at brevity, and wind up with almost twice as much content. We disparage the KOW (Killer of the Week) but praise the familial theme of the episode as well as guest star Molly Shannon.
Hannibal S01E05 – Coquilles – Eat The Rudecast
The first killer of the week that intrigues us also leads to the most implausible and hacky ending we've yet seen, but an entirely metaphorical killer plot introduces so many new and interesting threads.
Hannibal S01E06 – Entrée – Eat The Rudecast
In a conceptually awesome episode, we meet Anthony Hopkins AS Hannibal Lecter simulacrum Dr Abel Gideon played by the awesome Eddie Izzard. I defend my love of Dr Frederic Chilton to Ophilia. We also get a Clarice Starling proxy. There's a lot to like about this episode, unfortunately it's marred by poor writing, poor CGI,...
Listening to in 2020 after watching the serious on Netflix. ONLY issue is how often one host interrupts others. That pulls me out because of how frustrating that can be when it happens to you in person. Other than that, I really enjoy this and learning little bits of things I otherwise wouldn’t ever know. And I can confirm that the Hannigram smut and obsession HAS carried through the years. :)

Absolutely love this podcast. Still waiting for the last episode! Would love for these 3 to pick up a new show to discuss.
I had been looking for an excuse to rewatch this show and this podcast is a great way to have other’s viewpoints on each episode as I go through the show for a second time. Great podcast!
