This week’s title says it all; in their latest recurring series, co-hosts Randy Dankievitch and Sean Colletti dig into the ever-popular art of adaptation, discussing what draws them to the form, what makes it interesting – and why it is such an important cornerstone of culture. All of this is an introduction, of course, to a very special episode focused on Thomas Harris’ 1981 novel Red Dragon, and the art it inspired: the films Manhunter and Red Dragon, and (of course) Hannibal‘s third season arc.
Discussed: Manhunter (1986), Red Dragon (2002), Hannibal (Season 3), Red Dragon by Thomas Harris
