3 Things You Didn’t Know About Hannibal

hannibalNBC’s Hannibal written by Bryan Fuller (of Pushing Daisies fame) is a surprising sleeper hit. Although the show performed only modestly in the ratings, its critical praise and growing fan appeal have led it to become one an almost “cult hit” TV series. The show, which is set to release its second season in 2014, explores the backstory of Will Graham and the infamous Hannibal Lecter. The show’s strange, sometimes surreal storylines are just one of the reasons for its cult popularity.

Whether you’re a newfound Hannibal fan or a dedicated Fannibal, here are 3 things that you might not know about this delicious new TV show.

Every episode in the first season is named after a meal course.


Watchers of the show may have noticed that the episode titles were all in French–but did you know that each episode was actually named after a French word for a meal course? For example: Apéritif, the title of the first episode, are dry drinks or snacks served before a meal in order to stimulate appetite.

The show’s first episode made a deliberate wink towards “The Hulk.”

In the first episode, the character of Will Graham says: “Please don’t psychoanalyze me. You wouldn’t like me when I’m psychoanalyzed.” The quote is a clever nod to The Hulk. But the connection goes even deeper. In The Incredible Hulk film, the titular character was played by Edward Norton–who played Will Graham in the 2002 film adaptation of Red Dragon.

The show has a food stylist.hannibal-actor

It probably won’t come as a surprise, but Hannibal is a show with plenty of cooking scenes and food dishes. Most of the food in the show is prepared by Hannibal Lecter, who is—usually through suggestion rather than any distinctive violence—usually serving up something a little more extraordinary than cow or chicken. The haute couture food in the show is actually created by a “food stylist,” who has the difficult task of creating edible food that can safely last under hours of studio lights and retakes, but also looks like human flesh, organs and other bits.

While crunchy and earthy are not normal culinary descriptions for one’s favorite things to eat, Teresa Widener’s favorite snack crunches on her teeth as she eats rocks. This week’s episode of the cable TV show “20/20” spotlights Widener, the mother of two and a special needs teacher who says she likes the earthy flavor and crunchy feeling when she eats rocks.
