So I was watching the first episode of the second series to Hannibal and when it came to the part where Will remembered what Hannibal did to get the ear into his stomach (by shoving that tube down) and that actually got to me on a personal level.
Last year I had an endoscopy (where they put a tube down into your stomach)and that was a horrible, almost terrifying experience for me, as it put me through a lot of discomfort. Especially since it still makes me feel sick thinking about it.
I mean sure, the program is filled with gore and blood and horrifying murder, but that’s not what bothers me, it’s the parts that really hit home about that show and show you just how scary and frightening some aspects of life can be.
Of course, I’ll keep watching the show, but that part just made me reflect at little about how, despite all the blood, gore and murder, Hannibal is the sort of show that shows you real-life difficulty and real-life issues and does so in such an expertly presented way, that it really makes you think about some issues in a new perspective. At least that’s how I see it.
