Andrew Talks to Chefs

SPECIAL REPORT #34: "Shelter en Place" Theater presents Hannibal with Guest Critics Allison and Matt Robicelli

Episode Summary

Our favorite resident film and television critics Allison and Matt Robicelli join Andrew to dissect the NBC series Hannibal.

Episode Notes

Our quest for great chef- and food-focused entertainment continues, as it does every Friday, with an examination of the NBC series Hannibal. Allison and Matt Robicelli join Andrew to examine such questions as:  Why does the cannibal Hannibal Lecter remain such an enduringly fascinating character? How does Mads Mikkelsen compare with Dr. Lecters past? Is the show revolting, or beautiful? And how in the world did we end up talking about Tom Jones' sex appear in the middle of this thing? For answers and no shortage of tangents, please listen in.

Our great thanks to S.Pellegrino for making these special reports possible.
