Hannibal’ serves up another course with its eleventh episode of the series, “Rôti,” as Dr. Abel Gideon (Eddie Izzard)'s escape forces the FBI to protect his most recent therapists, while Will turns to Hannibal for help with his continued mental degradation.
Last week’s ‘Hannibal’ episode “Buffet Froid” saw Will investigate the killings of a diseased girl (Ellen Muth) while undertaking a battery of neurological tests, and Hannibal decided to withhold a deadly secret from Will, so how does the eleventh course of ‘Hannibal’ taste?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick June 4, 2013 @ 3:26 PM
While we've already observed some major spoilers to come out of 'Hannibal' before the final three episodes of the season, this Thursday's "Rôti" will return Eddie Izzard's deliciously demented Dr. Abel Gideon to the stage. NBC has released two new sneak peeks of the latest 'Hannibal' nail-biter, and it looks like doctors Lecter and Chilton have some sinister motivations all their own...

Tonight's all-new 'Hannibal' installment, "Buffet Froid," will keep the focus largely on Will Graham's deteriorating state of mind, but the final few episodes of the season will bring back both 'Hannibal' favorites and Bryan Fuller alum alike. New photos from upcoming 'Hannibal' installments "Rôti" and "Relevés" reveal the return of both Eddie Izzard's sinister Dr. Gideon Abel, as well as 'Dead Like Me' vet Ellen Muth, but what new horrors will they bring?

Hannibal’ serves up another course with its fifth (technically sixth) episode of the series “Entrée,” as incarcerated killer Dr. Abel Gideon (Eddie Izzard) suddenly takes credit for the Chesapeake Ripper murders, while Jack finds himself haunted by the memory of trainee Miriam Lass ('Veep's Anna Chlumsky), lost to the killer.
Last week’s ‘Hannibal’ episode “Coquilles” saw Will struggling to maintain his effectiveness in the face of a new “Angel-maker” killing spree, while Jack tried to identify what his wife (‘Firefly‘s Gina Torres) might be keeping from him, so how does the sixth episode of ‘Hannibal’ taste?

'Hannibal' "Entrée" Sneak Peek: Eddie Izzard and a Very Familiar-Looking Prison!

by Kevin Fitzpatrick May 1, 2013 @ 2:18 PM
Unless you live in Utah, much of the fun of NBC's 'Hannibal' lies in identifying references and homages to both the classic film series and author Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter novels. That scavenger hunt will take a huge leap forward in this Thursday's all-new episode "Entrée," in which Will Graham pays a visit to an awfully familiar Baltimore state hospital! Comedian Eddie Izzard also stars, so how would you like a first look at the most delicious 'Hannibal' episode yet?

It really pays to know Bryan Fuller. Not only has the one-time 'Pushing Daisies' producer cast a number of his past stars in NBC's upcoming Hannibal Lecter adaptation 'Hannibal,' but he even provided a role for comedian Eddie Izzard! The UK star has previously been attached to Fuller's other NBC effort 'Mockingbird Lane' as Grampa Munster, though NBC passed on the series and burned off its pilot as a "Halloween Special." Find out Izzard's ripping new 'Hannibal' role inside!

What's The Big 'Mockingbird Lane' Twist That's Totally Irrelevant Now?

We have to admit, we're fairly disappointed that NBC and Bryan Fuller's 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane' isn't likely to continue beyond its special Halloween airing of the show's pilot.  Campy and re-hashing a premise though it might have seemed to begin with, once NBC released the first full photos and even a trailer we started to see how the tone actually seemed to work for the series.  So while October 26 will see the pilot airing and likely closing out the show's run, what twist do new photos introduce for the series going forward?

It's one of those things that doesn't feel real until you've actually seen footage. After all, there's no way to know for sure that NBC spent $10 million on a pilot/Halloween special remake of 'The Munsters' until you've seen actual evidence with your own two eyes. Alas, the first teaser for 'Mockingbird Lane' has arrived proving that yes, someone thought remaking the 'The Munsters' was a good idea and worth a lot of money.

Boy, someone's certainly excited to begin production, aren't they?  In the last 24 hours alone, we've seen Portia de Rossi added to the cast of NBC's forthcoming 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane,' as well as our first look at Charity Wakefield in costume as Marilyn, so what's next?  With production helmed by Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer underway, which member of the cast is next to show off their look?

There are some projects some reboots, remakes and re-quels that viewers want so desperately to be left alone, they inevitably die out, like the unfathomably bad 'Charlies Angels.'  That said, 'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller's upcoming reboot of the Munster family 'Mockingbird Lane' just moved one step closer to reality.
