Hannibal: The TV Series - 8/12/2012 7:29:48 PM

This is a Lector based series as opposed to that fella who liked to run around on the backs of elephants.

Have been having a look at some of the details on IMDB. Doesn't really tell a great deal. The time line is pre Red Dragon, focusing on Lectors and Grahams relationship prior to their "little spat". I think that Mads Mikkelson might be a good choice for Lector.
What turns me off a little is that they have made the Dr Bloom and Freddy Lounds characters female! Bloom is neither here or there and is open to interpretation. But Lounds is a pretty established sleazy male character. Why change it in such a way? I personally don't see how that will work. I do like the idea of Fishbourne as Jack Crawford though.

Has anyone seen any of this yet? Or know when it will be hitting our fair shores?

Aww man.

I was hoping it was A-Team related.

This is a bad idea, if there had not been so many pointless film sequals then I would be more open to it, but this is a pretty dead horse at this stage.

The word is very positive. With this, Bates Motel and The Following, it seems 2013 is the Year of the Serial Killer

Starts over here on SkyLiving next month. Wonder if they'll edit it, seeing as it's on Living. But they do have Supernatural, so they may be some hope.

Looking forward to this, clashes with Elementary but I think I'll go with Hannibal.

This was excellent, light years ahead of The Following. Mikkelson and Dancy were great together.

Small spoilers,
My only worry is that it might turn into a case of the week Criminal Mnds type of show.

Pretty amazing first episode. Fantastic visual style and great performances. But it could be one of those where they put everything into the pilot and then the rest is sort of slapdash regurgitation.

So it's kind of hard to tell if it'll be a good show, but I'll definitely see the next episode.

Nowt wrong with Criminal Minds. I have yet to watch the pilot to Hannibal but I am glad it is getting good reviews.

No I enjoy it, but we have that type of format I would prefer if Hannibal stayed away from it as you end up with Hannibal being Reed to Grahams Hotchner.

Something just hit me. This Graham isn't married, nor does he have a kid.

Maybe it means nothing, they just didn't feel it was needed, or maybe they've something planned for future episodes/seasons.

There really is a lot of potential here, hope they make it work.

Great start and I liked the 'swiping flashbacks'.

Plus it's the only show I've seen with a naked woman mounted on a stag's antlers and for that, it has my interest.

Another great one. It delivers the grisly serial killer stuff you'd expect, but the smaller scenes and the visual flourishes (that was a nice cup of coffee) is what's really cool about this show.

Hearing lines I'm used to hear from Brian Cox should've been weird, but instead it was just awesome.

I really, really hope they can keep this up through all 13 episodes.

I missed the last 10 minutes but I still found it very enjoyable, at least it's a variation on the case of the week format. I think Grahams and Lectors chemistry is great and Lector came across as a bit more charming this time around in his scenes with Crawford.

Have very much enjoyed the first two episodes, particularly the relationship developing with Hannibal and Graham. Will be interesting to see where it all leads.

I think the only misstep so far is Freddie Lounds. Admittedly, its still early days for the character, but like someone mentions above, the Freddie that I know and love (to hate) is a sleazy middle aged man, someone who has been on the scene a long time and has a pent up aggression and disrespect for the police and FBI who have done nothing but treat him with contempt. He was someone that came across as wanting to make fools of the police more so than wanting to report a story, as he has just grown hateful against how they see him over time. The actress who has been cast is far too young, that I can't help but find her motives unbelievable.

Finally saw the end, great scene and really like their chemistry. I wonder if working with Graham will be the catalyst that will drive Hannibal to become a serial killer, right now there is only really one crime we know he comitted. Also with this series being set in the present time won't this change his back story (regarding WW2 refugees etc)?

I think according to Bryan Fuller at this point in time Hannibal has committed 4 murders.

This show man... This show.

The latest episode was operatic (literally), disgusting, funny, beautiful and creepy as hell.

There's a lot of tv I haven't seen, but this was definitely one of the best episodes of what little tv I have seen.

Well said. Really enjoying this so far - Mads Mikkelsen is terrific as Lector. Hope it gets picked up for a second season.

Just watched the pilot. Well, that made The Following look like a children's cartoon...!

Not entirely even sure what happened, was the guy shot at the end just the copycat killer? Did Hanny warn him knowing he would be killed and throw people off his scent??

Anyway, good start, but not sure how they'll maintain it over a whole or several series when we know where it ends up...

No Hannibal was the copycat killer.

Caught the first episode last night, and really fucking enjoyed it. After seeing the trailers online months ago I was a little worried as they moslty looked terrible, but really, this is pretty great. Great cast and a really good tone, I was worried it may be a little glossy and straightforward, almost like a CSI style weekly procedural, and I fucking hate those! However, although I can kinda see that we may get a 'killer of the week' style approach, the overall tone and clear set uo for a season long arc makes this a lot more appealing to me. Really hope it keeps up the tone set in that first show.

Caught the first episode and really loved it. Well acted, looks beautiful and I like that it's a fresh slate with setting it in modern times.

Realism doesn't seem to be what this show is interested in. I can see why that might bother some. The whole art installations murder scene aspect, the extremely moody soundtrack and the twitchy lead character and his weirdly dressed cannibal buddy is not for everyone.

But episode 8 actually has a scene that I suspect people who even went along with the above stuff might not like.

I don't know, I'm still loving the hell out if this. I was literally sweating during that episode 8 scene, which I will not spoil. But it was badass!
