I can't believe this made it to season 3. MGM, give up the rights to Clarice Starling, you silly bastards.

Silence of the Lambs would definitely be improved with a yakety-sax soundtrack...

How spoilery is the link? Just burned through both seasons a month ago and I like to go into new seasons cold.

It's a shame Tom Noonan is too old now to reprise Frances Dolarhyde. I really preferred Manhunter to Red Dragon.

Eh, the whole point is to bring in new people and a different version of the story.

Really, it won't be an issue. Bryan Fuller already said that if they don't, he's just going to have a character called Schmarice Schmarling or something similar. MGM only holds the rights to the name, not the character's background or story. Cynthia Nixon's character's weird name is an anagram of Paul Krendler, since that name is also in the Silence Of The Lambs license.

I think they have been setting up Miriam Lass to be the "alternate" Clarice character.

Brings new meaning to term "gag" reel?

This whole show is sickening torture porn and I am at a complete loss to understand why it's on broadcast television. Watching this degenerate filth and and enjoying it cheapens the soul and it is positively damaging for vulnerable minds. yet somehow two dudes having a kiss is too edgy for 99% of all TV content? Truly that says all that's needed about our so-called "popular culture"

I like it because it's a bit surreal. You don't see that too much on American TV.

kronicfeld: It's a shame Tom Noonan is too old now to reprise Frances Dolarhyde. I really preferred Manhunter to Red Dragon.


As did I, but I did like that the latter retained the original book ending (where Dolarhyde fakes his death to come after Graham, actually delivering on the threat posed by Lecter giving out his home address earlier).  Then again, they also retained Dolarhyde eating the painting and that was just goddamned hilarious.

Just started watching the show.  I find some of it to be logistically over the top, but I keep getting sucked back in every time Hannibal delivers dialogue that I recall from the book/movie.

Never knew they didn't have the rights to Clarice. I always figured she'd be the new protagonist one day. How many shows have a built in character addition that would boost to the ratings and the energy of the show itself? A non-reboot, reboot. Come on, I need to see this happen.

MGM has TV and film rights to character names introduced in the Silence Of The Lambs novel. That includes Clarice Starling, Jame Gumb, Paul Krendler, Senator Ruth Martin, her daughter Catherine, and Barney from the dungeon. MGM isn't selling them because they plan to air a Clarice Starling series (with an occasional "letter" to/from Lector) on Lifetime. For whatever reason, MGM is convinced they'll see more revenue and acclaim from a series on a barely-watched channel than they would "co-producing" one of the most critically acclaimed series on broadcast television.

But yeah, Bryan Fuller's original plan was to run three "prequel" seasons, then a season each of Red Dragon, Silence, and Hannibal (probably following the book ending), and a wrap-up season after the Hannibal-novel season. But given the way Season 2 ended, I'm wondering if they aren't shortening their plan by a few years, and are going to draw on the Florence events in Hannibal for some of the third TV season.

Fuller already announced that its getting shortened to 6 seasons.  Most likely they are merging the Verger stuff from the Hannibal book and the original outline for season 3

I'm nowhere near as pearl-clutching: but I often wonder how the hell they're getting away with what they're showing on a broadcast channel.

They have warnings before the show starts, so if anyone does start pearl-clutching, they can say "we told you not to watch if you don't like artistic gore".

I think it is such a beautiful show.

This Hannibal would have a much funnier gag reel.

Well I guess I'm hater. I want to like the show, but the David Lynch wannabe director's surrealism throws me off. Same as with the show Perception.
 
2014-07-25 01:55:17 PM  
Whenever I see a blooper of an actor flubbing up their line and laughing, I always hope the other actor in the scene gets really pissed off and punches them.  That, I'd find funny.
Having said that, Laurence Fishburne's "WHAT?!?" was pretty good.

The Hannibal cannibalism scenes are comedy gold.

Meh. Missed season 1, watched season 2. I found it interesting in style, but with little substance.

As torture porn, it's weak, and those complaining about it as such are trolls. There's actually very little violence (at least in season 2), but heavy with description and showing the effects of violence.

The score is over the top and ruins most episodes for me. Music and sound can do so much to build mood and emotion, but like the best make up, it works best when it isn't noticed at all. When I don't feel buried under a wall of sound, the show can be a 7 or 8 out of ten. When I can't concentrate on dialogue because of the background noise, it's a 3 or 4.

I still can't believe there was never a kitchen scene where Hannibal burst into a full Christopher Walken style song-and-dance, straightened his tie, and then went back to his cooking like nothing had happened.

Lincoln is by far the funniest character on Broad City.

I'd watch a "Singing in the Rain" type dance number. With all the visual effects, it wouldn't be very out of place.

Hell, it could even have been a hallucination when Will was in the throes of encephalitis.

I find the same thing when I try to re watch The X-Files. There would be a simple dialog scene and the atmospheric music is so over-powering, you can't even hear the actors, who mumble to begin with. I didn't find it as bad with Hannibal.

Speaking of X-Files/Hanibal connections, they should get a time machine and bring in a 25 year old Gillian Anderson to play Clarice. I'm pretty sure Scully is based on Clarice anyway. There wouldn't be any confusion because Gillian's a blonde now.
