NBC’s brilliantly written “Hannibal” has been picked up for a second season. We don't get much time to watch TV around these parts, but Hannibal is one show that stays faithfully recording on the DVR. Whether you watch the show for the intricate plotlines that take incredible turns and twists weekly or to see what (or who more importantly) Dr. Hannibal Lecter will be serving to his guests, the show is put together with incredible whit and unbelievably astounding looking dishes. Overseen by Chef José Andrés the culinary treats displayed on the show are nothing short of miraculous. Exquisitely plated entrees are served up usually after a montage of scenes depicting Hannibal removing some organs, preparing them for his guests and sometimes even storing them in food saver bags in his freezer.
For those of you who haven’t taken the time to check the show out, do yourself a favor and get wrapped up in it asap, because at this point you are already almost a season behind and this is one show that moves fast. On a side note, one of our favorite movies was The King of New York which starred a young Laurence Fishburne as Jimmy Jump a cold blooded street hustler who we can relate too, simply cause we grew up around numerous cats just like him. In Hannibal, Laurence Fishburne plays Jack Crawford, the head of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, where he currently finds himself being led on a complex game of cat and mouse.
