Hannibal's Skipped Episode #4 Makes Problems

Continuity Threatened, Story Parts as Webisodes

We reported recently that the 4th episode of the TV series Hannibal was removed from the airing schedule because it shows children killing other kids and that was deemed as inappropriate in the light of recent real life events such as the Boston terror acts.

It was promised that the skipping of the episode doesn't cause problems for the comprehension of the following story development of the series. That is indeed important since there are barely any series left that have a "case of the week" structure and don't build on the events of earlier and future episodes. Subplots constantly evolve in the background, so if one episode is skipped, one might miss out on some vital details.

As it turns out, the promise wasn't all that true and the producers decided to release a series of little webisodes that contain important plot scenes that are not directly connected to the main story that deals with the child murders.

[It] details the relationship between Hannibal Lector and Abigail Hobbs, played by Kacey Rohl. As the series goes on, this relationship gets much more complicated and becomes a load-bearing element of our storytelling. So we wanted to make sure that you have all the scenes to follow the story along.

The total runtime is said to be more than 20 minutes and that equals about half of the episode. Unfortunately, European fans don't really profit from that because even though the videos are officially on Youtube, they are restricted to US territories. It remains to be seen how other TV stations outside of the US handle the situation.
