This is the best show on television right now (the whole episode 4 was absolutely phenomenal) and it's going to be cancelled because NBC hates the show, did not promote it, put it in a death slot in the middle of farking April and never gave it a chance.


And those two farking Marathon Bombers farked the pooch as well. fark you, NBC, you're terrorists too.

David Bowie can do no harm.

Not too keen on this idea-and I say this as a Bowie fan.

To be fair, his plate's probably pretty full, what with that music thing,
 and all his duties as The Sovereign of the Guild.

It would seem more like unnecessary stunt-casting than an organic and plausible addition. This show is far too good for that.

Yeah, it's going to be cancelled because it sucks and nobody's watching. NBC hyped the hell out of it for months. Didn't fix the fact that it blows.

Well Bowie is a really decent actor, and personally I trust Brian Fuller's vision. If he thinks that Bowie would make Hannibal's perfect uncle, I believe him.

I mean just look how incredible this show already is. Hannibal has been redefined, and the ultimate version of the character is now on NBC.

Much like West Wing, when martin sheen left, it was pretty much over. Leo had died, and now that your other main character was gone, it's all downhill.

So noted, Tats. We'll just have to agree to disagree.

I also hate the guy who's the actual lead character; I'm sick of the borderline autistic savant who can place himself in the mind of a serial killer. Hannibal Lecter is one of the great villains, and here he's playing second fiddle to Aspie. Laurence Fishburne is phoning it in, too.

yeah it requires quite a bit of suspension of disbelief but I've enjoyed the episodes I've watched. The Following is a much better show though, imo

what? It is a better show. It doesn't have the incredibly bad overacting that Hannibal does (though the Joe Carroll character is rather overacted). The fact that you think someone might be trolling a thread about TV shows says a lot about you

It is a better show, although I don't think it's a great show, either. With Following, at least they got it somewhat right; the charismatic villain is actually more charismatic. However, Kevin Bacon is the worst cop ever. Each week, he gets beat up and the killer goes free.

I watch The Following as well, and it's interesting-but certainly not superior to Hannibal. Purefoy's Joe Carroll, while entertaining, is an outlandish caricature-something I immediately picked up on after his "prison break"-in comparison to Mikkelsen's measured and more menacing Lecter.


*shrugs* That's my take on it.

Hey, don't look at me. I don't think he's campy or boring. I like the show and I find Mads' Hannibal under the skin creepy. He's gone on record in saying that he's playing Hannibal as if Hannibal was Lucifer and I think it works brilliantly.

Yeah, I'm not understanding the "campy/cheesy" acting from Mads. It's as if they never saw Hopkins play the role.

My problems with the show are purely logistical. Like how Lector manages to get from Virginia or DC or wherever he lives to Minnesota, kill a girl, steal her lungs and fly back with them without anyone noticing anything odd. And don't get me started on Freddie's Batman-like ability to gain access to places she shouldn't be. Why hasn't Crawford arrested her yet? That said I still dig the show and will probably watch until they cancel it.

LemSkroob: And fark it, give Mockingbird Lane a real shot. It had Eddie Izzard in it. It had to be good.


Izzard's going to be on Hannibal later this season.
