    Oh em gee, Hannibal. This last episode, I just, I can’t even… Mason Verger’s line sums it up: “I am enchanted… and terrified.” Ecstatic we’ll be getting a season three of this brilliant, disturbing show.

    I am so addicted to Hannibal, even with the gore. I know it’s on at 10pm but I still can’t believe what they get away with on NBC! The face thing made me cringe BIG TIME.
