In The Flesh 1x02 + True Blood 6x04 + Hannibal 2x08 Reviewed

Jem is ever more hostile to Kieren. Nobody mentions Kieren’s suicide. There is a ceremony to honour the victims of the Rising. Kieren’s friend Rick who was killed in Afghanistan but came back as a zombie arrives home and his father is HVF leader Bill. Kieren goes for a walk and learns graveyards are now quarantine zones and encounters fellow zombie and manic pixie dream girl Amy. It is still not clear how or why the Rising happened. It’s grim up north and gets grimmer as Kieren remembers crawling out of his grave.

Amy has no remorse for eating people. Kieren learns the identity of a HVF member he ate during the Rising. This is better than ‘The Walking Dead’. Bill and Rick are in denial about Rick’s state. Rick drinks alcohol and then vomits it up as black bile. Jem waves a handgun but is thrown out of the HVF because of Kieren. Zombie bites don’t make you a zombie. Kieren was an outcast before he became a zombie. Rabid rotters are encountered in the woods. Amy is nasty. Kieren apparently got into art school which is bizarre as the ‘art’ hanging on his parents walls is awful. Kieren and Rick talk and yell and various truths are revealed. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“What is every living person afraid of?”

“Not accepted.”

“Your grot mags are still intact.”

“Freaked a few grannies out.”

“Tried eating a Mars bar a couple of days ago. Had to throw away my knickers and my skirt.”

“I’ve seen a rotter.”

“Huge vagina hounds.”

“I’m banned for life.”

“By not being here, he’s offending me.”

At Last
People finally realise that Ben is Warlow. Apparently only he can kill Lilith and he‘s in love with Sookie. Nora annoys and is hauled off by the LAVTF. Fairy godfather is a crazy lonely nut job and Warlow sends him far far away. Werewolves are aggressors as Emma is deemed important. Eric and Pam are jerks. Terry bores. Andy’s quads grow again and are stalked by Bill and Jessica. This show isn’t immersive and is problematic in many ways. Jason’s plotline bores as always as his contingency plot goes awry. The Governor’s daughter plotline is as reparative as ever as Eric turns her into a vampire. There is no salient point to this show. Bill issues missives, Eric is scum and the Governor is not impressed by his transformed platitude spouting daughter. This ep is dull in perpetuity as Jessica attacks and seemingly kills Andy’s daughters during a rager. The expectant Sookie gets it on with Warlow. This was so BORING!

Best Lines:
“A fairy vampire?”

“A vampire who walks in daylight.”

“That’s the devil talking.”

“He’s creepy. We’re going.”

Jack hasn’t apologised for shooting Will and he has got no apology from the FBI either. Hannibal gets profound about trout. Will gets profound about baiting Hannibal. Is Chilton dead? Another gross killer shows up, why are there so many nutters living contemporaneously in Virgina? Only one of Will’s former FBI colleagues apologises for the way Will was treated. Margot Verger comes to Hannibal for help; she’s agitated about her awful brother Mason.

Alana reprises her whining, oh shut up Alana. There is corpse defilement and Will does his staring and Evil Tastes Good act. Where is Miriam Lass? I’m denuded of interest as everyone acts like the Chilton thing didn’t just happen. A brain damaged man is harassed by his serial killing social worker. But the brain damaged man strikes back at the vile creep. Will plans a wanton merciless response on someone. Hannibal tries to constantly bait Will into contentious topics. Yawn.

Best Lines:
“Mad dogs are put down.”

“A coffin birth.”

“You nearly destroyed me.”

“Don’t lie to me.”

“Doing bad things to bad people makes you feel good.”

“It’s fine to be weird.”

“You saw what he really is.”

“I know what it’s like to point at a killer and have no-one listen.”

“I’m alone in that darkness.”
“You’re not alone Will, I’m standing right beside you.”

“I envy you your hate.”

“I’m the victim here.”
