    Learn The Truth About Hannibal from this New Sneak Peek of Season 2 - Dread Central

    I am about 6 1/2 episodes into season 1...first of all, they get away with A LOT for a tv show. This would be r-rated in a movie theater. Long lingering shots of REALLY NICE fx work. And all the meals that Lecter shares with his guests...really, the censors definitely have a different scale on this one. As much as I dig Mikklesen, I am not sure I buy his Doctor. Too foreign, too creepy. These are FBI agents and they don't get a 'let's check his closet' vibe from his almost plastic face, strange familiarity and just genuine oddness(he just smelled Will for f's sake). It's a compelling show and not like anything I have seen on a network, that's for sure.

    I just finished episode 5 of Hannibal, and I completely agree with jerseydevil about the portrayal of Lecter as well as about the show in general being flawed but also compelling and worthwhile. I'll add...

    What I like:
    1) It's trying hard (and succeeding) to be way different.
    2) It can be hokey.

    What I don't like:
    1) It's not as well written as it either wants to be or thinks it is. So far, there is at least one thing (even outside of Hannibal himself) each episode that is just poorly done.
    2) It can be hokey.

    There is at least one stupid joke in every episode of Dads that makes me laugh out loud. I dont think the show is THAT bad, but then again i'm immature.

    To add to that, they are hampered by the 'mystery of the week' format that they shortchange EVERY episode. They introduce these great sociopaths and the same team that can't tell that Dr. Lecter is a little 'off' manages to suss out, almost Scooby-Doo style, how to find them. It is distracting to the better story they are trying to tell. I don't know how much of that is network mandated(to have a neat and tidy conclusion at the end of every episode) and how much of that is bad writing. The one hidden bonus in this is the guy who plays the morbidly funny one of the trio of forensic team members. Knew he looked familiar then realized he was one of the Kids in the Hall guys. Like him and the cute in a wacky way Asian gal. Lot to like, but not without it's faults.
    And nothing better happen to Will's dogs, or I am out.

    Hugh Dancy is really good in a twitchy way and Larry Fishburne don't never bring things down either.

    Speaking of Hannibal...

    Michael Pitt To Play Mason Verger On Season 2 Of Hannibal - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    That's the character Gary Oldman played in the Hannibal film. Wonder if they'll keep the ****-erotic relationship intact?
