Getting very positive reviews. Morpheus and the bad guy from casino royale too!
To answer your question: No. Television does not need another serial-killer drama. But who can resist Hannibal Lecter? Especially when the horror-pop icon ha...
Am I an idiot or does it not say what channel this is on?
Yeah, that's weird, although in the first comment someone says its at 10PM Thursday on NBC
dang was hoping cable.
Yeah, although I've really enjoyed The Following so far.
Although cable (A&E), Bates Motel has also been really good and I got a bit giddy seeing on imdb that Jere Burns is going to be in at least 4 episodes this season. He's been crushing it the last several years on Burn Notice and Justified.
WaPo wasn't impressed. I'll let it go for 5 or 6 episodes and check to see if it's worth picking up then. Give them some time to find their legs.

I liked it, very creepy. Acting was stellar.
Don't forget Jesse's NA group leader on Breaking Bad
Definitely, it was entertaining and shockingly out there for a show on NBC. I'll be watching again next week.
2/2 on the episodes so far. very enjoyable.
There were few projects announced for TV in recent memory that seemed as immediately distasteful as NBCs Hannibal, but Bryan Fuller has pulled off a minor miracle, and we find ourselves completely hooked.
Agreed. I was not real confident a network would do the Hannibal character justice but so far it has been very good. The main characters are all on point.
its a good show so far.....should probably be getting more attention.....its one hundred times better than the americans...but normal people are to stupid to recognize.....welcome to strip mall america
It's a great show. Definitely enjoying it so far.
I thought the 2nd episode was better than the first. It got more viewers last week than it did for the premiere, which is rare. So the critical acclaim seems to be helping.
Go away, KA!
Fishburne's Crawford is nothing like the Crawford who recruited Clarice Starling, IMO, but I'm willing to let that go. The timeline being way off is also throwing me for a loop, but I understand why they want to set it in the present. I just wish they used more of The Silence of the Lambs as canon. For instance, in Episode One, Will determined that Hobbs was searching for his "Golden Ticket" and it would not be the first or last victim. In TSOTL, Starling's big "ah-ha!" moment came with her roommate when they realized that the pattern only seemed random because Buffalo Bill's first victim was found third. He treated her differently because he knew her, causing her to be disposed of differently and thus found later. I didn't get the impression that they were being cute, in an Indiana Jones "X never marks the spot," way, but rather that they had forgotten or ignored that part of the film.
It's also interesting that the show is called Hannibal, but so far it seems Will Graham is the main character. I think that's a fantastic storytelling device, using a character/story we already know but telling it through another lens to give us more perspective, and it works especially well since Graham is such an interesting character. I also cannot wait to see Lecter's psychosis set in (or at least be revealed). I'm particularly interested in seeing him devour Freddie. Every time they were on screen together, I wanted to shout at my TV, "Eat her face! Eat her faaaaaace!"

Yeah, making Will the focal point and the strength of that character/actor so far as been one of the most appealing things about the show.
Please move to another country. Or, better yet, another planet.
In re the movie of the same name, now on AMC, they're showing that horribly gross scene with Ray Liotta...
all of the dinner/eating scenes have been fantastic.
Really liked last week's episode, apparently NBC is wimping out and pulling episode 4 in lieu of content being too close to some of the Boston bombings last week, so tonight's episode is the 5th one. If you want to fill in the gaps between 3 and 5, they've made a good chunk of episode 4 available over the web.
Bryan Fuller intros "Ceuf," a web series exploring Hannibal Lecter's relationships with Abigail Hobbs and Will Graham.

Ceuf Part 1 - Hannibal Web Series
This post was edited by BoostedTerp 12 months ago
So.. I really enjoyed the books albeit they were lighter fare than I expected.. and the wheelhouse of my movie watching experience as a late teenager were the diehards, red octobers, and a little known movie that I always enjoyed called Manhunter. Which is of course "Red Dragon" before Red Dragon.. I always felt like Will Peterson did a much better graham than norton, who as always played himself.. So I completely missed this on the radar, and noticed a link from a friend detailing a good review. I proceeded to watch the first 3 episodes on FIOS on demand and all i can say is wow.. excellent work for a network show, well acted, and love the source material of course.. Lektor's rendition by the bond baddy is quite excellent, and there are many an uncomfortable moment.. I like the focus on Will Graham, though they may have made him a little TOO singularly damaged for my tastes, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Really hope this continues.. I'll have to check out Bates Smiley.. looks interesting
Yeah, Bates is definitely still going strong. Very pleasantly surprised with that one.
Wasn't this cancelled?
Not as far as I've heard
Looks like I jumped the gun.
