Topps Recap Header

No sooner have we come to the end of the “Silent Cities of The Mind” two-parter, we’re back off on a three issue run: “Feelings of Unreality”. This story arc will conclude the first year of the Topps comics series and sees Mulder and Scully finally coming up against the mysterious Project Aquarius. Find out what happens in part one, “Wheels Within Wheels”, after the jump.

AquariusMainPhotoAquarius rolls on to week three and we check out Episode 4 "Home is Where You're Happy." While all the episodes are now available on demand, we're kicking it old school and reviewing as they air each Thursday night on NBC. Last week we left a terrified Grace Karn who received a phone call from Charles Manson. The madman was playing a recording over the phone of Grace's missing daughter singing. Sam Hodiak and Brian Shafe only have a few more hours to figure out who really killed the owner of a diner, before Hodiak's former partner will charge a man who clearly had nothing to do with the crime. And while they're tracking down the real murderer they're continuing the search for Emma. Does Hodiak get his man? Find out after the jump.

It has been over a year since we last sat at Hannibal Lecter's dinner table. Tonight that all changed with "Antipasto", the season three premiere of NBC's Hannibal. Last night's episode focused exclusively on both Hannibal Lecter and Bedelia Du Maurier. After the disaster Lecter left in Baltimore last season, there were a lot of questions left hanging. This episode brought some answers, but many more questions still remain.

For years, Anthony Hopkins was the face of Hannibal Lecter. His words to Clarice Starling have haunted many people's nightmares. The character of Hannibal Lecter was first introduced to the world through the novels of Thomas Harris, and his recognizability only grew with the Oscar winning performanes given in The Silence of the Lambs. So when Bryan Fuller created Hannibal for NBC, he had a great deal to live up to. He was working with an iconic set of characters that deserved a lot of respect.

When the announcement came that Gillian Anderson would be joining the cast of Hannibal in season one, we were intruiged. We always look forward to seeing her work, but what we weren't counting on was just how incredible the entirety of Hannibal would be. From the relationship between Will Graham and Hannibal to the struggles of Abigail Hobbs, we were hooked early on. Never had murder been so appetizing. 

Gillian plays Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, Hannibal Lecter's psychiatrist who is hiding her own dark secrets. She made guest appearances throughout seasons one and two, but was promoted to a series regular for the coming season. According to multiple reports, Fannibals will be finding out a lot about Bedelia and her past this year, and we cannot wait. 

Season three of Hannibal premieres tonight at 10pm on NBC following David Duchovny's Aquarius. The first episode, "Antipasto" will feature heavily on Bedelia Du Maurier and her relationship with Hannibal. We will find them living in Europe, on the run from the FBI after the disaster Lecter left behind at the end of season two. 

XFN will be reviewing season three of Hannibal, bringing you recaps and reviews every week. However, before we dive into the new episodes, let's take a look back at the series' first two seasons to catch up on anything you've forgotten. 

 

DDAquariusNewAs Aquarius rolls into its second week we take a look at Episode 3 "Never Say Never to Always". While all the episodes are now available on demand we're going old school and reviewing as they air each Thursday night on NBC. Last week's episodes ended with Emma's father Ken Karn paying a visit to Charles Manson that ended with the two kissing. We left Sam Hodiak with Grace Karn going over phone records from Ken's office.  Do they get any closer to bringing Emma home?  Does Episode 3 continue the strong storytelling started in the first two episodes? Find out after the jump.
