Tonight’s episode of Hannibal is, essentially, a short film, one that functions as a gorgeous, somber mood piece — or a tone poem, as would be more to Hannibal Lecter’s high brow liking. Will Graham has emerged from the gruesome events of the Season 2 finale, alive but not unscathed, with myriad existential and logical questions that have but only one answer: Hannibal.

Incredulous though we remain that NBC’s Heroes Reborn could happen at all, at least some of the show’s past stars have firmly chosen to move on from such a dark time in history. We’ve heard of a bevy of returning Heroes castmates, but who from the original group has officially opted not to be Reborn?
We still don’t even have a proper trailer for NBC’s inexplicable Heroes Reborn revival, but once again the super-series has dug deep for an original series cameo. Cristine Rose will reprise her role as Angela Petrelli, though Milo Ventimiglia isn’t likely to join her, and a new leak offers at least some footage of our new Heroes.
NBC’s Constantine has traversed a rocky road, suffering in ratings, enduring an accidental early cancellation, then an official one, and at long last John Constantine may have finally met his match. No amount of the supernatural can conjure salvation from Constantine’s latest fate, as showrunner Daniel Cerone says the show is officially over.
Parks and Recreation may have said goodbye to Pawnee for good, but the final season lives on by the full DVD release. And while we’ll never let Leslie Knope or the Parks department crew go, the final season’s full gag reel and special featurette is a good way to relive our favorite farewell.
The most gorgeous, cinematic show on television is back — Hannibal’s Season 3 premiere is rife with sickeningly stunning shots and dripping with dread. “Antipasto” takes us on a trip to Italy to spend the entire hour with Hannibal and Bedelia, as the former dispenses with his “person suit” to give us a far more intimate — but no less formal — experience.
We’re still on the fence as to whether NBC would be cruel enough to subject humanity to a genuine Heroes Reborn revival, though the network today tosses another original series star into the mix. Sendhil Ramamurthy has officially signed to reprise the role of Mohinder Suresh, sure to shepherd the new … the new … say, did it just get sleepy in here?
NBC’s Hannibal has committed such outlandish crimes as stuffing human bodies into trees, horse innards, even actual stuffing, but creator Bryan Fuller draws the line at depicting sexual violence. A recent interview sees the showrunner adamant about working around depictions of rape, but still defending their necessity in shows like HBO’s Game of Thrones.
The good Doctor Lecter will resurface abroad for Hannibal Season 3's “Antipasto” premiere next week, but why wait for an appetizer? The first full clip from Season 3 has arrived, giving the cannibal killer an opportunity to double-fist his next victim. Uh, figuratively.
Whether or not you subscribe to the theory that NBC’s Heroes Reborn revival is anything more than an elaborate prank on all television (and how could it not be?), its purported casting has been solid. Fresh off Orphan Black Season 3, Dylan Bruce is the latest to join NBC’s questionable Heroes reboot, in you guessed it, a mysterious role.
