skullkrusher: propasaurus: skullkrusher: you are a puppet: skullkrusher: propasaurus: skullkrusher: propasaurus: skullkrusher: Tatsuma: skullkrusher: can't be worse than that terribly campy mofo who's playing Hannibal

You shut your mouth, sir. YOU SHUT YOUR FARKING MOUTH.

oh cmon tats, that dude is farking terrible

On this, you & I are in total agreement.

it is some of the cheesiest acting I have ever seen I think

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

And the troll exposes his hand

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.

plus the wife and the pixie haircut villain chick are hot


I also think that The Following is a better show. Hannibal seems to be NBC's flawed attempt to copy Criminal Minds and use the Hannibal character as a gimmick to try to draw in viewers.

skullkrusher: it's over the top, unbelievable and you can barely even understand what the fark he's saying half the time


I agree his accent can make him a little hard to understand at times, but you have no idea what over the top is.  His performance is probably the most nuanced and understated I've seen in years.  The problem with the show is the writing.  The only challenge to Mikkelson for best actor in a drama this year will be Bryan Cranston.

I like Hannibal. I like Mads Mikkelson as Hannibal. However, I have to say that if there's anything I don't like it is his speech. I find it really hard to understand most of what he's saying. That's all. But obviously, it is significant whenever he has screen time.

The Following. Fascinating concept but works for a few episodes. Now it's just dull as fark.

What is my favourite drama on tv on the moment is
cf.badassdigest.com

Intriguing premise of using the look of a 60s America but obviously set anachronistically  in the modern day.
The whole look and feel of the show is expertly crafted and a pleasure to watch.
The acting is superb by all the leads - the mother can be over-the-top loony but immensely watchable when she does go off the rails.
And Freddie Highmore, as a young Norman, really captures the essence of Perkin's portrayal.

Also, it has Keegan Connor Tracy and Olivia Cooke in it. What's not to like!

if you say so. I am not buying his psuedo-aristocratic European persona in the slightest.

It's fine that you don't like it, but calling his performance over the top is like saying Al Pacino has been choosing roles based on their subtlety for the last decade,
 
2013-04-28 06:58:32 PM
I don't know why NBC even picked up this show. It belongs on Showtime or at least AMC. And I don't know why they had to make the cop such a psycho and Hannibal normal. Well not normal, he's sort of over the top menacing but doesn't really do anything. Not that I expected Hannibal to eat someone every episode and for the cop to be his straight laced Scully but still.

no, he over does it with the proper-ness of the character. That's what is so unbelievable. Hopkins gave you the feel that Lecter was a proper and educated person. This Hannibal looks like a guy trying to appear proper and educated

Shostie: propasaurus: 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.

You never bothered to read Red Dragon, I guess.


I did actually. But, I'm tired of this particular version of the trope. The socially awkward, forensically brilliant criminal-savant. And I particularly dislike this actor's characterization. I mean, even in Silence of the Lambs, Lecter is at best a secondary character. Hopkins is on screen for all of -what?- 8 minutes? But it's such a forceful characterization that it seems bigger.
I agree, as was said above, it seems to be an attempt to copy Criminal Minds, and plug in the Lecter character for name recognition.

After they farked up Community by firing Harmon, the guy who totally made the show, and now they're going to beat the only other good show they've had in a while to death with a shovel and bury it under a rock the only thing I can say is that they deserve to be in 27th place behind the Mexican wrestling channel. Good thing Lorne Michaels had been there for 40 years or who knows what kind of blasphemies they would have committed against 30 Rock.

I can't understand a word that comes out of "Hannibal's" mouth even with the volume cranked and the CC on.
 
2013-04-28 07:49:05 PM
If you completely ignore the entire known universe around Hannibal Lecter and take the show as a separate entity, its a decent show. As a Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham/Jack Crawford universe it completely misses the mark and sucks rather badly. I think NBC had a story about a serial killer and a couple of profilers and didnt want to take a chance doing anything radical like airing something new and not done before so they changed the names and plot a little and called it Hannibal. They are just retarded enough to do that

Yeah, look, we're just going to have to agree to disagree here.  I think you're completely wrong and you think I am, but over the top it is not.
 
2013-04-28 07:53:35 PM
The concept of a brilliant criminal profiler who's blind to the serial killer standing next to him is intriguing.
Hannibal as a sidekick, solving the crime-of-the-week is not.

They added the Hannibal name to it to try to set it apart from Criminal Minds, the show that they are copying.

That could be too. Either way, I doubt it sees a second season, which is a shame. It could be so good with just a few minor changes

I remember when Bowie essentially did an IPO...of himself. I mean, how farking awesome are you when you can raise capital by selling bonds tacked to your future awesomeness?

I won't sit here and defend every Bowie song or album just because he's Bowie. The man has put out some turds over the years (IMHO). But damn, son, he's David Farking Bowie. I can't articulate how impossibly cool that guy is.

/was pleased to hear "Moonage Daydream" playing in a coffee shop the other day, and it was coming from some teenage girl's iPhone dock

The Following is Fox's attempt to recreate 24.  I like the show.  Hell, I like both shows.  I play a drinking game where I substitute Kevin Bacon's likes with, "THERE'S NO TIME!"

I think the guy who reviews the show for the Onion's AV Club must drink heavily while watching it as well. No episode has been given a grade higher than a "C" and the last half of the season has gotten nothing but "D"s and "F"s.
