In Kō No Mono, Will Graham has finally redeemed himself; after three dubious episodes where everything looked exceptional but stood on shaky ground, Hannibal viewers can now sigh of relief: our mentally unstable hero is not the villain’s sidekick, the FBI is not as clueless as it looks, and Alana is beginning to open her lust-blinded eyes (though who could blame her, really). We also got a rare insight into Hannibal’s past, where he mentions his sister Mischa. But most importantly, Will shares our thoughts on Mason’s haircut. So much was going on in this one that it almost makes me want to write Hannibal recaps.
Take a moment to appreciate Mad’s facial expressions in this episode.
|Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki in Supernatural‘s King of the Damned|
Another show that took the right turn this week was Supernatural (again, such a relief). These days series usually drag out conflicts for so long, that when Abaddon died I was actually surprised — and very pleased. We can now focus on getting heaven in order (not my favourite), and what the Cain mark is doing to Dean. But the best thing was getting some more info on Crowley‘s past; it’s always a pleasure to see some good character development. And also, yet again, really funny.

|Ben McKenzie as Comissioner Gordon in Gotham|
Gotham: the life of a young Commissioner Gordon, played by O.C. star Ben McKenzie – I’m giving this a shot.
Angie Tribeca: cop comedy with Rashida Jones and produced by the Carells — has everything to be hilarious.
A to Z: comedy starring Mad Men‘s Ben Feldman and How I Met Your Mother‘s Cristin Milioti — looks cute, should soothe the hearts of the everyone on Team Mom, and he looks like a young RDJ.
How to Get Away With Murder: produced by Shonda Rhimes and starring Viola Davis, who plays a law professor and criminal defense attorney — friendly advice, don’t get attached to the characters.
American Crime: written and produced by John Ridley, from 12 Years a Slave — I hear Emmys.
