I've started giving Hannibal another watch since the first time I tried (many years ago, when it was first airing) I didn't have access to subtitles, and this is a show with some WACKADOODLE sound balance.

Hahaha, I forgot Scott Thompson was in this and YES I am having a fun brain adventure imagining Buddy Cole, Forensics Expert.

Making Freddy Lounds, dreadful tabloid turd-stirrer journalist, into Freddie Lounds, dreadful ONLINE turd-stirrer journalist, is still one of my favorite adaptations this series makes from the original Harris books.

Having read Red Dragon, I am curious to see whether or not the series chooses to keep her on her predecessor's narrative rails.

@Ferrovore freddy lound's tv version just pissed me off, it was one of the reasons I stopped watching the show in season 1.

I don't know maybe I should give it another chance someday since so many people I know like it.

@DirkGrundy She has certainly remained an absolute scumbag so far! Constantly making things harder for everyone, pursuing dubious scoops all the time, working the system as best she can, complaining about gourmet salads; just the worst human being alive. I legit don't know if she meets the same fate as her book counterpart, but if she DOES it'll be fun watching her human-cockroach her way out of all the trouble she stirs up before then.

@Ferrovore it just annoyed the shit out of me that they made freddy a sexy red head, it felt disgusting.

@DirkGrundy They thankfully have not done ANYTHING with that after the initial "shows up naked in a hotel room" and "golly gee officer it's so nice you talked to those boys about the bodies they witnessed" bits. She's been more of an obstacle (if not an outright threat) than anything else, story-wise.

@Ferrovore @DirkGrundy Yeah they don’t really do more along those lines! Freddie gets to be involved in some WILD shit later but it’s endgame shit and... takes a while to get to. Part of the reason I dropped it the first time around was because of Freddie too so I get it lmao
