Hannibal Season 2 header

One of the best food shows of last year wasn’t really a food show at all. In fact, all of the food on it was stuff you’d never, ever want to eat. But the way Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) expertly crafts his meals and then plates them just so… our stomachs couldn’t help but rumble even as our disgusted brains were screaming “But that meal is made of people!”

Well, with February coming in fast, and the Season 2 premiere of NBC’s Hannibal along with it, it’s time to get used to feeling that cognitive dissonance again. This first teaser should help ease you in. In it, Hannibal prepares yet another elegant-looking recipe, with some very special ingredients. Check it out, along with some new promo art, after the jump.

Sarah 313

Typically, when a show fails to make it past the pilot stage, it just quietly disappears. The episode is never shown to the public, and the cast and crew stop mentioning it in interviews, and it’s basically like the whole thing never happened at all.

Still, a lot of work has already gone into the show by that point, so on the occasion that a failed pilot makes it out, the results can be interesting to see. Last year, Sarah Silverman taped Susan 313, a semi-autobiographical half-hour sitcom about a ’90s rock star coming out of a ten-year relationship. She’s now posted the pilot in its entirety online, and you can watch it after the jump.

‘Community’ Will Return in January

Community

Briefly: The New Year will bring with it a return to Greendale. NBC has set Community to return on January 2, 2014, with back-to-back episodes starting at 8:00 PM. It’ll remain at the top of the hour the following week, while Parks & Recreation will take over the 8:30 PM starting on January 9.

Community is entering its fifth season, which isn’t bad for a show that seemed doomed for “brilliant-but-cancelled” status from the moment it arrived. The new season marks the return of series creator Dan Harmon, who was fired before Season 4. It’ll also be the first without Chevy Chase, who left near the end of last season, and the last for Donald Glover, who’ll only appear in five episodes. [EW]

Joking Bad

As criminal masterminds go, a late night host with six months left (on the show, that is, not in life) selling his jokes on the black market doesn’t sound all that evil. But then again, we once sympathized with a terminally ill chemistry teacher making meth to provide for his family, too. Nowadays, that guy is a total monster.

True, joke-selling is somewhat less likely to result in slit throats, explosions, and poisoned people, but as Jimmy Fallon‘s Breaking Bad parody Joking Bad shows, it does come with some terrifying consequences of its own. Watch the video after the jump. Do be warned that some spoilers follow, if you’re not caught up through the first half of Season 5.
