Hannibal: love it, leave it, hatewatch it, understand it a bit better

I admit I'm not one of the people still caught up in the maelstrom of Bryan Fuller¹ nor Hannibal. To paraphrase Tim Minear: "Show not called Will Graham." But this is not about that—it's about the sibling characters. Elsewhere I saw pointed out severe lack of sympathy from Ava (sorry, she was on SPN), can't track new names for not having used the rampant resources around her to make herself a more independent woman—having to get pregnant to get family money should not be 2014.

Then someone linked to The Poorest Rich Kids In The World, from Rolling Stone, and I want to set a portion of 1 percenters on fire. Yes, it takes more than money to be a decent parent (money is no key to happiness or sanity), but can't you just PAY someone to be a good parent in your absence? Or therapy—pay for lots of early therapy? It's a horrible true story, even if you take it with a grain of salt.


So I feel worse for Margot (did I get that right?). But I'm a just deserts sort of a girl (yup, got schooled on that), and this show won't give me what my psyche needs from fiction anyway.

¹I did not like Pushing Daisies despite being so in love with Lee Pace (CALL ME), and I would have broken up with Wonderfalls season 2 about the moment the lesbian sister got accidentally pregnant.
