You can tell a chef is behind Kitchen Nightmares and Hell's Kitchen because the scripts are exactly the same serving after serving.

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes.  Or, if they were still doing Celebrity Death Match, Amy & Samy vs. Hannibal (tv dude) & Hannibal (Anthony Hopkins version).

Hannibal is astounding. Jeremy Davies was an excellent guest star last night

I like and don't like how the show mingles with the books and movies.  I've been watching under the assumption that anyone alive during the movies will survive, but that may not be the case.

Apparently, it's totally not the case, from last week, at least. Mainly, they do not have rights to characters who start in Silence of the Lambs; Agent Starling and James Gumb the two biggies.

Hannibal is great. I can't believe it's on NBC.

Hannibal is easily one of the top 3 shows on TV in the last few years.  The style, music, writing, & acting is just all so perfect.  How/why is it on NBC?

The violence is beyond cable, but they had a freaking sex scene yesterday. We're an F-bomb and nipple away from HBO, people.

The show runner plans on bringing in Clarice so I'm not sure where you heard that.

"Here's the skinny, the suits behind Hannibal are in charge of the rights to Red Dragon, Hannibal and Hannibal Rising and any characters which originate/are unique to those stories BUT Silence of the Lambs is in MGM's hands and this will prove problematic if/when the show reaches a fifth season. Because they can't use Clarice or Buffalo Bill. This means that the Hannibal version of Silence of Lambs can't be called that and none of the characters can be used."

Has anyone seen the French version of this?  Is it dubbed or voice over or do they shoot the scenes twice since it looks like much of the cast is fluent in French and it is partially funded by a French company and is filed in Canada.

One minor character from Red Dragon has been axed in the series.

What's more is that MGM is working with Lifetime to develop a series based around Clarice (that apparently can't even mention Hannibal), but that started over two years ago and I haven't heard about any significant movement on it since. I'm personally hoping that that series falls through and MGM works with The DeLaurentiis Company on this.

Don't count her out yet. She could still pull herself together.

Mikkelsen is always fun to watch, and the production design is top rate, especially Lecter's office.  It was also a smart twist to make the Tattler journalist a manipulative woman instead of a sleazebag dude.

That said, even in the context of a fictional TV crime world, the show's depiction of serial killings make them seem like weekly occurrences, with Will Graham as Dr. House followed by a competent-but-inferior team struggling to keep up.

I'm not a criminologist, but I'll go out on a limb (haha) and wager that contemporary cases of human corpse totem poles are pretty rare.  At least in North America.

Unless they explain away a shot to the neck, Dr. Chilton isn't a very minor character.

Bryan Fuller put this up on Twitter, but I don't know if it is a misdirection or not:

As a fan of the Hannibal Lecter character, I've had two questions. Is this show good, and if it is, will it not get cancelled too early? Enough time has passed to determine this show is worth watching. Is it safe enough at this point to get invested in it?

Bullet came out his cheek.  I'm calling that he lived.

Pretty amazing how they took a loathsome character and made him really likeable in the last episode just so they could KILL HIM (apparently).

Is anyone else thinking the unseen guy from the beginning of the episode is the kiddy-diddling carnivorous pig guy from one of the books?  Didn't he save their tears on cotton balls and refrigerate them to drink later?  I only read it once over 10 years ago, so I'm not really steeped in the mythos of the Hannibal universe enough to know what link he could have to current events.

This show is very, very good. At least invest in these two seasons; not every show needs to last longer than the war it was depicting.

He was talking about Beverly. Chilton almost certainly lives.

Dr Chilton is dead.  I suspect that's a pretty big sign that things will not happen as they did in the movies.  Plus,  margo verger is a thing,  after she was ripped from the abortion of the Hannibal movie.

Totem poles are indigenous to the Pacific Northwest of the Unites States.  So while they might be rare, they would more likely to happen in the good ol usa.

Poorlytoldjoke: Dr Chilton is dead.


I don't think so.

Nobody has actually said yet that Chilton is dead, and he was shot in the cheek, that's survivable with a little luck. Remember how Abel Gideon turned up earlier this season, alive and well after being shot?

Oh god, should I watch a TV show or not. Please help me, I can't decide!
