I am having so, so many feelings about Taking Back Sunday, The Used, bandom nostalgia etc. And I have no one to talk to about it! Why? Talk to me people!

If I wasn’t at work I’d be crying to this song, probably. Belting it out, for sure. I had no idea they could still be so good. 

I know I’ve got some bandom peeps still around, how you doing? Will you indulge me just a little?

This show was AMAZING.

There is something odd about the fact that falling IN love requires no explanation but that we are expected to produce (or make up) a satisfactory reason for falling OUT of love. Gordon Livingston; How To Love

Jonathan Tucker as Matthew Brown in Hannibal season 2, episode 5

Friday, March 28, 2014
The patriarchy has some fucked up ideas about masculinity, ideas that make men less likely to seek help for issues that they perceive to be too feminine – such as being hurt or raped by a female partner, not being able to provide for themselves, or not seeking help for health issues like depression and anxiety. On a societal level, it means that resources are not as readily available for men who face these challenges, because patriarchal ideas tell our courts, our governments and our charitable organizations that men don’t ever need that kind of help.

It’s a well worn trope at this point: a woman, her gun, and the killer. There’s nothing wrong with that, really - but how a thing is done matters as much as what is done.

So let’s compare and contrast. Beverly’s discovery of Hannibal’s nightmare basement is a clear homage to Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs. But there are a few important differences.

I think people forget that the situation in Silence of the Lambs was out of Starling’s control. She didn’t run in half-cocked trying to cowboy her way into a serial killer’s den - she shows up to ask him routine questions and he runs off. Her choices make sense in context. She has to pursue him, both as an officer of the law and because she knows the clock is ticking on Catherine Martin’s life. So she does, and she emerges a triumphant hero. She descends into hell and walks right back out again. 

On Hannibal, however, Beverly Katz is not behaving in a way that makes sense. Katz - who has been shown to be both brilliant and level-headed - goes to a suspected serial killer’s house in the middle of the night, by herself, and breaks in. She doesn’t tell anyone where she’s going. She dies trying to get evidence that she couldn’t even use because it was obtained illegally. 

It’s absurd. Are we really to believe that rational, calm Beverly Katz would behave like this? It disrespects both the intelligence of the character and of the audience. 

The saddest thing is that Katz could have easily been Hannibal’s Clarice Starling. She was the perfect candidate to take Hannibal Lecter down - uninvolved in his bullshit, clear-eyed, and formidable. Instead her arc has been cut off right as it was getting good. She was thrown away for a cheap shock that wasn’t actually a shock at all. What a waste.


As much as I love Hannibal, this was really upsetting.

Abortion seems to be the only medical procedure that people want to deny you based on how you got in that situation.

Drove drunk, got in an accident and need an organ transplant? No problem.

Messing around with a gun, accidentally shoot yourself in the leg and need surgery? Of course.

Smoke tobacco for most of your life and need treatment for lung cancer? Yep.

Climb a tree, fall out and break your leg? We’ll fix that right up.

Have sex and get pregnant when you don’t want to be? YOU GOT YOURSELF INTO THIS SITUATION AND YOU DESERVE NO MEDICAL HELP OR COMPASSION! THIS IS YOUR FAULT AND YOU WILL DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES!
