xerinmichellex: (tv: Hannibal - Hannibal Lecter)

I promise a real, personal update in the coming days.

Two updates:

1. Molly Graham is being cast right now. (And there's gonna be another fucking time jump in the middle of the season into the Red Dragon storyline, and uggggggghhhhhh, the writer in me is cringing.)

2. Since everyone is/was wondering about its premiere date and I (stupidly) suggested March/April: From an NBC executive, Hannibal won't premiere until Summer. Oops. (Though, I'm okay with this because a lot of my TV shows are coming back in March and April, and at least there will be SOMETHING to watch in this summer.)

An aside: I think I'm gonna put a moratorium on discussing S3 of Hannibal because with each detail that comes out, the lower and lower my expectations get, and I hate to be the person raining on everyone's parades with "yeah, but. . ." Unless Reba gets cast, then we can all celebrate.

Well, looks like I'm going to be happier than Olaf the snowman when summer rolls around. Except . . . why don't we get to see Will and Molly's relationship beginning? I'd love to watch that. We didn't get to see that in the book, if I recall. Missed opportunity much?

Yes, we'll all celebrate when Reba gets cast. :) (I really liked how Emily Watson portrayed her in the movie. That's my standard.)

Love your choice of music, by the way.

THIS. This is why I'm pissed with the time jump. I'm blaming Fuller's decision to smash the "Hannibal on the run" and Red Dragon plots into one season. IT'S SO FRUSTRATING. (This post sums up all my thoughts (http://bonearenaofmyskull.tumblr.com/post/108209606537/thank-you-for-taking-the-time-and-trouble-to) on why Molly just popping into existence is so wrong for the show.)

Yes, we'll all celebrate when Reba gets cast.

I'm really worried that Molly's being cast/discussed right now, yet there's been no word on Reba. Based on the article, Molly's appearing in Ep. 8 and, yeah. . .WHERE'S REBA?

Maybe Fuller's continuing RD into S4 and she'll show up then. But if they're smashing in Molly and Will's relationship with no build-up, I don't think it's a good sign for Reba and her relationship with Dolarhyde. . .and I'm gonna stop because this is the type of thing I'm trying to avoid.

I was LITERALLY listening to it on my Tumblr when I saw the news and it's so PERFECT both in a literal sense and in an ironic sense because I'm so "meh" about all things Hannibal at the moment.

I'm hoping for flashbacks, or lots of reminiscing in Will's Fishing Mind Palace. Also, that's a great and thoughtful post. Puts it into better words than I could.

Oh, yes. Best not to get too worked up.

Hee, how fortuitous!

I think this has been confirmed based on other comments I've seen. Flashbacks still make my eyes twitch because it is another detached form of storytelling.

Why can't Molly be introduced earlier in the season and show her and Will dating? Then--if we must--time jump to them married. There will be emotional stakes already laid out and it won't feel like Molly's being forced on us; much like how the Vergers were so late into the season.

I don't know if this was in the post I linked, but I saw someone say that cramming Molly in makes it look like Fuller thinks of her as a secondary character and not worthy of development like Dolarhyde. Molly gets shit on a lot and here, in a 13-episode format, they could've spent the time fleshing her out and make her someone other than "Will's worried wife".

True. I like flashbacks in some cases, but usually when the story is made more powerful by starting halfway through, or near the end. Here I'm pretty sure the most striking way to show their development is to show it linearly, start to finish.

Oh, yes, it was in there. And I remember when reading the book, though I was mostly focused on Will, Reba, and Dolarhyde, I did wish to get to know Molly better. She had great undertones, overtones, and just tones in general of strength, but you didn't get to see it in action much from the book's narrative.
