{TB Talks TV} Hannibal Review: “…And the Beast from the Sea”
0

Hannibal-logo
I like that Hannibal is all the way to the actual Red Dragon storyline, and I love the way they’re doing it, but you know what—it definitely feels like a coda. It’s such a meaty, fully fleshed-out plot that it’s just the perfect stopping place should the story ever need to stop. So, here’s hoping they wrap it up well and don’t do any stupid cliffhanger crap.

{TB Talks TV} Hannibal Review: “Contorno”
1

With “Contorno,” Hannibal stops reflecting on its past traumas and gives us a bit of forward momentum. It’s counter-productive to call this episode weird, but I was so enjoying all the psychological interludes that plot business begins to feel strange simply by its lack of Hannibal‘s patented weirdness.

{TB Talks TV} Hannibal Review: “Aperitivo”

I’m sure you all heard my cries of despair from wherever you were when Hannibal was cancelled earlier this week. What cancellation means for us in the now is that we just must savor the rest of this season all the more and pray to the God of Streaming Service revivals.

{TB Talks TV} Hannibal Review: “Primavera”

The first ten minutes of “Primavera” is just a complete replaying of the climax from the season 2 finale. You’d think this would be pointless, but removed from the overblown context of the rest of the season it’s a perfect setting of the stage for Will’s messed up headspace.

{TB Talks TV} Supernatural Review: “Dark Dynasty”

I’ll keep this short because I’ve about hit my limit with Supernatural. While the series has a standard pattern of character deaths and is good at twisting modern mythologies in interesting ways, the one-two punch of weirdly reinterpreting classic literature with brutally killing the best character they had is too much.

{TB Talks TV} Agents of SHIELD Review: “Scars”
0


If Age of Ultron didn’t do it for you, Agents of SHIELD is still amazing to pick up the slack. It’s been a crazy week in the MCU. Rather than having to suffer joltingly through lame tie-ins or forced references, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was perfectly content to keep doing its own thing in “Scars.”

{TB Talks TV} Supernatural Review: “Angel Heart”

Where has this stuff been all season, Supernatural? Seriously. Even the other episodes with Claire Novak have been hit or miss, but this one is a definite hit. It not only pokes at Judeo-Christian mythology, it addresses some long-standing consequences of the boys’ actions in a careful and contemplative way.
