Episode Description: Edit

After finishing “A Storm of Swords” and “The Princess and The Queen”, Ivan and Red bring to your attention the next in their “What You Should Be Watching” series, one of the very few shows on television that can match George R.R. Martin’s disregard for his character’s lives, NBC’s “Hannibal”. Created by king of cancelled shows Bryan Fuller (of Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, Wonderfall, and writer on season 1 of Heroes), this show seems has a quantity of gore that relocates the boundaries of what’s acceptable on network television. The knockout cast includes Lawrence Fishburne, Mads Mikkelsen, and and a very strange turn for Scott Thompson, formerly of “Kids in the Hall”. They begin the episode by discussing a recent behind the scenes Game of Thrones mini-doc from HBO and the questions it raises, before moving onto how to approach an introvert, Kristian Nairn, Detective Sheldon Cooper, “Dead Like Me”, Mikkelsen’s physicality, and cork boards with yarn.

Intro Clip: Edit

"I didn't recognize him for 45 minuets when I was re-watching Between Two Ferns, even though he is...even though he is introduced as President Barack Obama because the context was so strange." - Red

"They wouldn't put the president between two of these things." - Ivan

"For security reasons alone I can name at least two places where people could be hiding." - Red

Show Notes: Edit

  • This episode contains some of the best arm-wrestling conversations that you have ever heard.... that is not saying very much, but it is a good episode none the less.
  • The guys discuss the greater need for "Chuck D" discussion on the internet.

Quotes: Edit

" I do feel like his balls do have their own things orbiting them." - Ivan

"Is he [Chuck D] the guy who's the ....*uhhh*... the conductor from that train that everybody thought was going to come at them?" - Ivan
