Hannibal (Season 1 - 2013)
« on: February 15, 2012, 03:22:41 pm »
NBC Orders Full 13-Episode Season of 'Hannibal'

let's see how this pans out.



Quote
NBC has given series orders to "Hannibal," a 13-episode drama from "Pushing Daisies"' Bryan Fuller featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris' novel "Red Dragon," reports THR.

"Hannibal," from Gaumont International Television, is described as an hourlong contemporary thriller featuring characters from Harris' best-seller and revolves around FBI agent Will Graham and his mentor, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who are reintroduced as the beginning of their budding relationship.

Lecter was made famous in the 1991 The Silence of the Lambs which landed Anthony Hopkins an Oscar.

Fuller is also working on the delayed "Mockingbird Lane," a reboot of "The Munsters.
"

Munsters? Yea, that's something we've been anxiously waiting for.  :-\

This has fail written all over it. How can they stay true to the character if it's on NBC? It will be watered down. At least put it on a Cable channel like Showtime, HBO or even FX. But NBC?

Pilot




Meh. It was decent. I will give NBC some props for not shying way from the blood. But overall, I just didn't connect with the actors playing the characters. I will give it a couple more episodes to see where it goes. But based on the Pilot, I really don't see what all the rave reviews about this one is. I dunno. Just an average forensic / procedural show at the moment.

I had to fix the title of the thread. Hope you don't mind. It was difficult finding it.

A much better episode for me at least. I like that they are going to have all the episodes basically connected to each other. By that I mean the previous episode isn't swept under the rug and forgotten. I like procedural shows, but most of them are basically stand alone episodes that completely disregard what happened before. With Hannibal, they are using the previous episode to continue the story. So far that is. They may be using arcs for a few episode and then moving onto another completely different arc. Whatever the case may be, I prefer this type of writing format over single stand alone stories. Longer arcs reward the viewer for sticking with the show.

As for this episode in general, I like the Tabloid Reporter. She is an annoying gnat that will stir the pot and create havoc. Her scene with Hannibal was the moment that I finally took to the show. I will definitely be sticking with the series to see how it progresses. One thing though, the show may be called 'Hannibal', but he isn't the main character. It's Will.

I wasn't expecting Abigail to become the centerpiece of the show. Well, for the time being she is. I knew that she would call Hannibal out as the one that called her father to warn him that the cops were closing in on him, but what is unclear is if she knew all along. I guess him helping her hide the body of the man she just killed would be the clue that she needed in "seeing him" for what he is. But there was a scene earlier when she wanted him to "play the role of the man that called the house" that still leads me to believe she knew. But how? Happy coincidence? Anyway, this was a really good episode. Now it's just a question of how much Abigail will play in the rest of the series. Does she become a partner in crime to Hannibal? I dunno. It goes against what we've always "known" about the character of Hannibal.

A couple of days ago, Gina Torres popped into my head as I was wondering what she was up to because I noticed that I hadn't seen her in anything in such a long time. So, it was kind of trippy to watch this episode this morning and see her featured front and centered. It looks to be a big enough role that she will have recurring episodes for sure. As for the rest of the episode, NBC really is pushing the envelope. 'Flesh Wing Angels' isn't something I would expect to see on broadcast TV for sure. It was okay. Most of the story really did deal with Jack Crawford and his wife Bella (Gina Torres).

The show isn't perfect, but I'm enjoying it none the less and Mads Mikkelsen is kind of starting to grow on me as Hannibal. But with that said, I think Eddie Izzard would have made a far more better Hannibal Lecter in both appearance as well as the embodiment of the character. It was a trip to see Anna Chlumsky here, who I have not seen in anything since My Girl. That's a long time. Solid episode for the most part and I did like seeing them bring Dr. Chilton into the Hannibal world. I guess he has always been a self-deluded dick.
