    2 minute trailer.
    Airdate is February 11th.



    Ehhh...I'll be honest, I'm intrigued, but not excited.

    Plus...the issues Tereun raises are something I hope they address and fix, like they did with Mason's lesbian sister in the Hannibal series.

    Also...I hope they only do the "Lambs" flashbacks in the pilot and move on, but I have a glum feeling they're gonna wallow in it all season.

    So really it is Clarice SVU or perhaps Clarice Criminal Intent. Or more probably Criminal Minds the Clarice years? Or perhaps NCIS with Clarice? Or CSI DC.

    How many of these fucking shows are there now? We already have 2000t seasons of Liv fighting her way up the male dominated ladder of the NY SVU to prove herself worthy of being captain while raising the adopted child of some killer she was tortured by. What more could Clarice actually do that has not been done in 8 billion seasons of Law and Order and it's spin offs? Every episode of Clarice should be titled Liv did it first. Liv is the fucking bart simpson of serial killer detective women. She already did it.

    Maybe they could cross genres and have Clarice lead a rag tag bunch of zombie survivalists who eventually have to worry about undead eating them and the forces of hannibal eating them while he wields a bat named after her? Then he could kill glen and eat him right in front of her like ray liota.

    I have an idea for CBS all access. It is about a super intelligent chinese architect named domicile who has to detect structural flaws in shoddy chinese building construction before the building collapses and kills everyone. He is rude and obnoxious and the only guy who will work with him is his best friend sidkick named Wangson. He does drugs, young asian girls, and lots of chinese hookers.

    Where is my fucking money.

    Didn't do much for me. Not at all interested in seeing Clarice overcoming a toxic workplace or battling sexism; bring on an interesting serial killer and let her chase after him.
    IMHO no one makes a series based on The Silence of the Lambs without planning to bring Lector into it at some point. I wonder who'll play the role this time? (I suddenly flashed on Jude Law...)

    I watched TSotL last week; it remains one of my favorite movies of all time.

    They legally can't use Hannibal.
    Notice they don't even say his name.
    Anyone who's in "Red Dragon", they can't use.
    So the flashbacks are all Buffalo Bob, Buffalo, Bob, Buffalo Bob.

    How can they use Clarice and not the other names? That sounds a little bit strange. I would think to do such a similar story you would have to have some rights to the original intellectual property. That does sort of sound like a rumor that was not well thought out. It is like me making a clone of star wars and changing Han to Hon and vader to vador, but the series is called Luke and the main character is luke skywalker. I am pretty sure Disney would be coming for me.

    I am going to have to look into getting my client Cardi W. to record WAV this week.

    It's how the De Laurentis's finagled having the rights to "Red Dragon" "Hannibal" and "Hannibal Rising" while MGM clung to "Silence" with a death grip.

    It's kind of the Sony Spider-Man of the Hannibal-verse.
    Except MGM and the De Laurentis's haven't cut a deal.
    Maybe if the Koreans hack the De Laurentis's.

    It is, but it's real.
    You can look it up.

    *Imagines the Howdy Doody theme being sung in the strained voice of Jame Gumb*

    Flawed in concept, perhaps, but still better than Discovery.

    Take my $9.99, damn it. I don't like commercials.
