Another Thursday, another This Is Our Design. We may or may not be able to continue saying that based on future screeners and scheduling, but really, isn’t life unpredictable in general? Wouldn’t Hannibal want you to embrace the spontaneity of suffering like the flying patterns of a sparrow? For being without this podcast is suffering. That’s what we tell ourselves, anyway…
What do co-hosts Sean Colletti and Kate Kulzick also tell themselves? Something equivalent to “OMGEUUURRRGGGHHH!!!” this week, because director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) makes a return appearance to talk about “Secondo” and the opening to this season of Hannibal that he has helped create. Discussion topics range from how we bear sorrow through stories, the effects of shooting through beveled glass, and the return of yet another beloved character in Jack Crawford (and his hat). After your “Hannibal by the Numbers,” stick around until later in the podcast for “Kate’s Classical Corner” and “The Devil in the Details,” which round out a visually striking episode. If you’d like to message Sean or Kate, their Twitter accounts are linked below. Otherwise, leave a comment here or e-mail them at thisisourdesign666[at]gmail.com.
