    NBC are bound to fuck this up somehow. Also it's a Bryan Fuller thing, so cancellation beckons before it's started.

    High profile though as you say, we shall see.
    I called it. Lower ratings than Awake in the same timeslot last year, Hannibal seems a tough sell from the outset.

    I had no idea about this, will check it out when it hits UK. For those not setting sail on the high seas, it's airing on Sky Living of all places but dates are not confirmed yet.

    Haven't read the first page of this thread so am untainted by public opinion, but I'm liking it, mainly to see how they develop the relationship between Hannibal and Will, especially as we know how it ends so we don't ever have to worry about Will's safety - not that we ever have to worry much for the safety of a show's main character, but you know what I mean, it removes the tedious 'putting hero in danger' devices, such as those plaguing The Following.

    This makes it all *far* more interesting to me.

    This is turning into a Joss Whedon style fuck-up by NBC. Episode 4 has been pulled due to concerns about kids and guns, so ep 5 was shown last night. Episode 4 has been hacked into webisodes, which can't be found as yet in the UK.

    So, bad news for what is perhaps NBC's best show in recent years. Shame.

    Also, ep 4 is titled Oeuf, not Ceuf.

    Ep 4 web rips are now available in the usual places.

    Well my Sickbeard install has failed to get 4, and currently fails to get 5. Both were password protected. And now it turns out that 5 was actually 4, or is it vice versa, and 4 may not even exist any more.

    Shame, I was enjoying it.

    I'm losing a bit of interest in this. At first it seemed like it wouldn't just be CSI-with-Lecter, but now it's just turning into Serial Killer of the Week gubbins with a vague overarching plot. As myriad shows have shown recently, you can't mix series-length plots with standalone episode aesthetics anymore.

    I haven't watched episode 5 yet, but to date I wouldn't call the overarching plot vague at all. The plot is pretty damn definite, was she involved, or not? Oh, and the seduction of Will Graham by Lecter.

    Beautiful tender beings.

  • Deleted user 30 April 2013 16:59:36
    Yeah, you should probably watch episode 5.

    Does Will finally get seduced by Lector? Does sexytime ensue?

    Sorry to hear it's dropping a bit, was looking forward to it starting over here.

    Gutted about what they did with episode 4. Still enjoying this though!

    To be fair I'm just looking forward to something that's not as woeful as Criminal Minds (that I have to watch), even if it is a different killer each week.

    Have you tried The Following, cubby? I wasn't into it, but my wife loved it.

    I wouldn't mind if they did do a straightforward Serial Killer of the Week thing with Hannibal, anyway. My issue is that, even in these early few episodes, it's going the route of "single shot episode with maybe a couple of minutes dedicated to furthering the overarching plot", and the synopses for upcoming episodes suggest it'll be much of the same.

    Still, it's better than most of the dross that comes out nowadays, so I'm not really that bothered.

    Watched ep 1 last night, not too sure. I liked it better before Lector turned up.

    Liking it now, took a while to get into it's stride. We're starting to find out more about Hannibal and how he fits in as the crazy ass that he actually is.

    Watched the first episode this morning and enjoyed it. Not sure about the guy playing Lecter yet though. Was Will Graham always an assburgers?

    The guy playing Lector is great. And yes, Will Graham was always an assburger. He's got a subscription to issues, particularly one called "I Have The Mind Of A Serial Killer Weekly".

    Mads Mikkelsen plays Lector. I first saw him in an excellent '96 movie called Pusher, and he's done a lot of great roles since then.

    Still a little unsure about the downbeat way he's playing Hannibal but knowing the actor I'm sure it's very deliberate and will lead to great things (if it doesn't get canned).

    I think downbeat works for this interpretation. Bearing in mind at this point he's not been suspected/accused/charged/found guilty of any crimes, so he's skirting under the radar. By the time we meet him in the movies he's a well known proven psychopath, nothing to lose by being a bit obviously nuttso ;)

    I have been watching this and after a strong start it seems to be losing steam. This is not helped by Hugh Dancy petulant angst ridden detective who seems to only have one note, whiny miserable git "you won't like it when you psychoanalyse me"???????

    Mads Mikkelsen though is a brilliant Lector. A very restrained performance with great presence, he is clearly loving the role the scene. Will continue watching the show and see out the season but I'm getting sick of the deer visions.

    Oooh lucky bump I might have missed this I forgot all about it!

    For anyone still waiting on official UK showings remember tonight 10pm on Sky Living.
  • Deleted user 7 May 2013 15:02:08
    Considering they've (apparently) planned up to season four in plots, I think they've pulled the Lecter actually is an active killer card a little too early. Interesting to see a Silence of the Lambs surrogate with Eddie Izzard though.

    Wait, it wasn't Hannibal who killed the girl in the pilot episode? The one that was left in the open.
  • Deleted user 7 May 2013 15:16:58
    It was always left with an air of ambiguity and presumption. He was involved, but you don't know how or why. Now he's actually killed onscreen.

    It was a good episode, though.

    I've really been enjoying this, it's great stuff and shall fill my Dexter-esque void. I went into this expecting to absolutely hate it, but Mikkelsen is really interesting in the part.

    Yeah, episode 6 was a cracker. It was a nice callback to Silence of the Lambs in a way and Izzard and Mikkelsen owned the screen. Good stuff.

    It's really got into it's stride now. Loved episode 7.

    There's no point beating around the bush that Hannibal is a killer, everybody knows that going in.
  • Deleted user 9 May 2013 23:36:10
    Actually, one of the big questions that was raised at the beginning was whether he was an active killer or not. We know he's going to become one, but it was rather ambiguous whether he already was or not. Now he's not only active, but apparently a major one they never caught.

    Like I said, it was still entertaining, but see the above comment about them (apparently) plotting out a good 4 or so seasons of the show - they could have at least held onto that ambiguity a little longer. If he's going to end up somehow connected to every serial killer that comes along (we already know he has a connection to the Shrike, or whatever he was called), it'll get old fast. But we'll see. Knowing NBC they'll probably make it midway through season two and then can it. Apparently it's already been pulled in Utah because the Mormons were up in arms about it.
