I was late the party… again. I saw all the ads for Hannibal, recorded the first episode, and still didn’t watch it. Why? It’s called being lazy. But then the second episode premiered and then the third and then the fourth. I didn’t even think about trying to watch, but then Thursday they showed the previews for that nights episode which featured human angels whose wings were made out of skin from their own backs. Gross? Definitely. But that’s what caught my interest. So I went online and found Hulu had the past 4 episodes to watch! I watched the first episode that night and loved it. It’s very strange and odd, but in a good way. It’s definitely different than any other show I’ve seen. Once you finish the first episode, you’re going to want to watch more. I wasn’t even sure it was going to be good at first. Everyone seems to have a different opinion about the show. Some say it’s great, some say it’s okay, and some say it’s horrible. I say it’s great.
After watching the first episode, I then watched the rest the next day and it didn’t disappoint. Every episode had me hooked. The whole Garret Jacob Hobbes scene when he received the phone call from Hannibal was so intense and crazy. I’m also really liking the story surrounding Abigail Hobbs and I’m excited to see how Hannibal hiding the body for her will pay off.
Suffice to say, it’s going on my to watch list for sure!
