So, it looks like NBC’s going to ignore all the movie continuity (thankfully, because that origin movie needs to be forgotten) and just start anew here, with Hannibal being a police consultant that nobody yet knows is actually the liver-eating murderer they’re after.
There’s a word for this. I think it begins with “Dex” and ends in “ter.”
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
