For those of you who have been eagerly awaiting an amazingly in-depth discussion of the most recent episode of Hannibal, we’re sorry to say that all we have for you is this new podcast. This Is Our Design isn’t amazingly in-depth. Oh, no. The truth is that doesn’t quite do it justice. This podcast is life-changingly enlightening (and also presumes to create new English vocabulary; that’s just how we roll). Co-hosts Sean Colletti and Kate Kulzick will help guide you through “Futamono,” relying mostly on the help of Dennis Perkins from The A.V. Club. Topics this week include issues of believability, ideas of impermanence, contributions from some of the supporting characters in this series, and Hannibal and Alana sitting in a Tree… Man.
This episode also features what might be the most in-depth “Kate’s Classical Corner” to date, and Kate doesn’t even get started on the classical pieces featured. Brace yourselves for some Knowledge Bombs. “The Devil in the Details” also points out some interesting elements of the viewing experience and how creator Bryan Fuller is going deep into the Japanese theme this season. Have a listen and feel free to join the discussion by leaving some comments.
