REVIEW: Hannibal (NBC) "Roti" - Dr. Gideon - Part II

When Eddie Izzard, a very smart British stand-up comic, first showed up as Dr. Gideon in “Entrée”, I had high hopes. He has the intelligence, presence, and acting ability to create a memorable villain. When we see Dr. Gideon this week, he is threatening to sue Dr. Chilton for making him think he is the Chesapeake Ripper. I thought we would get some genuine excitement from Dr. Gideon, not a frivolous lawsuit.  

Even if Dr. Chilton planted the idea in Dr. Gideon’s brain, Dr. Chilton’s thumbs didn't gouge out a nurse’s eyes, kill her, and mutilate her dead body by impaling it with everything that was not nailed down in the infirmary. For some reason, this preposterous lawsuit is being heard by a judge (give me a break) and a handcuffed Dr. Gideon gets out of his cell again to be transported to court.

Also, does anyone remember what happened the last time Dr. Gideon was in handcuffs? (Hint:  It involves eye gouging, murder, and mutilation in an infirmary.)

There is no way that a person could break out of handcuffs twice.

You won't believe what happens next...

Dr. Gideon escaped!
Get out of town!  Who could have seen this coming?

This can explain how prison transport evolved from that to this.  Hannibal's prison transport in "The Silence of the Lambs" (below).

I can't be bothered with the rest of this show.  Scrambled brains, guts in trees, tongues as bible bookmarks.  Ugh!

At least Will shot Dr. Gideon at the end of the show so we don't have to see any more of his frivolous lawsuit.  What a waste of a talented actor!
