NBC is apparently looking to replicate Dexter, this time with Hannibal Lecter.  Bryan Fuller is producing.  they liked the script enough that they're skipping the pilot:

Quote
The project is described as a contemporary thriller series featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon – FBI agent Will Graham and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter – who are re-introduced at the beginning of their budding relationship. The project was bought by NBC preemptively in November with a script against a 13-episode commitment, meaning that the project wouldn’t go through a pilot stage but straight to series if NBC brass liked the script.

I'm actually getting excited about this one.  I hope it can live up to the hype.

a bit on Fuller's plans:

Quote
Hannibal will also be unusual because it’s planned as a 13-episode-per-season show. So though the drama won’t rush Hannibal’s story, it also won’t feel like its padded with throwaway episodes either.

“Doing a cable model on network television gives us the opportunity not to dally in our storytelling because we have a lot of real estate to cover,” Fuller says. “I pitched a seven-season arc including stories from various [Thomas Harris] books.”

Quote
For the first time, viewers will spend quality time with Lecter while he’s at large and before the world knows his secrets, working side by side with a similarly brilliant man who is destined to catch him.

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you.... stop trying to gnaw on my hand Hannibal.

Still not sure how I feel about this series.  I read the novels and I imagine they will need to change somethings to make it fit for TV like the changes to Walking Dead.   I'll tune in, but I don't have high hopes

we had epsiode 4 last night(the episode that you guys did not get because of Boston)

Spoiler for Hiden:
It was a very violent episode with kidnapped Children being used to go back to their families to kill them so they can be with their new families

Its a shame that you guys did not get the episode,because although the Children killer storyline can be missed,the continuation of Hannibals advantage and manipulation over everyone is something quite interesting


I am liking this series,but its quite eerie/strange...i use my Turtle Beach Headset and the music/soundtrack is quite bonkers at time


Spoiler for Hiden:
Will seems the more he works doing this,the more he is losing it,and Hannibal helping the FBI while he is the one they are looking for is quite good

There have been a lot of rumours,apparently the producers have plans for up to 7 seasons or David Bowie will be in season 2...but the decision to renew Hannibal has still not been decided(apparently it could be picked up by other networks if it doesn't get renewed by NBC)

The show is truly unsettling but also displays a very dark sense of humor that can make me laugh at the most ridiculous times (the elaborate dinner parties are usually the catalyst).

I love the parallel between Hannibal and Will they're trying to draw.  I'm also fascinated by Mad's ability to have Hannibal mimic empathy and human compassion...while still being able to convey the feeling that at any moment he could just kill any of these people without a second thought.

I am loving this series. As a Hannibal fan before Silence came out it's great to have a series like this. Something different that doesnt follow the normal by rote police murder investigation shows.

I have been series linking it on Sky(UK) but admit to downloading the episodes already shown in the US to get my fix sooner. Even my wife is enjoying it a lot.

We have started watching The Following (all 15 episodes on sky+ waiting) just to fill in the time bewteen Hannibal episodes and while it scracthes an itch Hannibal is just so much better.

Is it just me, or does it seem like Hannibal is trying to build a family of sorts?  A dysfunctional one to be sure, but a family all the same.

Not really, it's more like having a friend. He feels everyone is significantly below him and they dont deserve his friendship. Will he thinks does.

Random:

One recent episode talked about something happening at a beach in a small town in West Virginia.

One slight small problem. Said town (and the entire state for that matter) doesn't HAVE such a thing as it's a LANDLOCKED STATE. Also, my boss at work grew up at said town. He was laughing up a storm when he found out about this.

cool.  the Onion did have a funny comment at the end of one of their video segments that could have been aimed at the PC'ness that got an episode pulled.  it went something like this:

and today the Weather Channel announced that they will no longer be doing news about the weather out of respect for all the tornado victims.

I was looking at a review of the season one set, and found this interesting tidbit about how they are planning out the story with a pre-determined story arc, and which season will cover which books:

Spoiler for Hiden:
At this time, the seven-season arc is as follows: seasons one through three are an original Graham/Lecter storyline that lead up to Graham catching Lecter. Season four will follow the 'Red Dragon' storyline, season five the 'Silence of the Lambs' story, and season six the 'Hannibal' tale. Season seven will conclude the series with more original content. Who knows if the series will stick to this plan, but that's where it's headed at this point.

the good news is that they didn't pussy out and the whole unaired episode is part of the set.

That's so cool!  I hope it doesn't get cancelled beforehand.  I really want to see how they handle Silence, I'd rather they just do 2 seasons of pre-Dragon to get to it sooner.  And who's going to play Jodie Foster??  Maybe they can get Ellen Page  slywink

ARISE HANNIBAL THREAD!!!

Looks like from the Almost Human thread we still have a few Hannibal fans out there.

Personally I find this show to be so creepy and homo-erotic I can't imagine it having a broader fanbase, but apparently it seems to be doing OK and got renewed.  Glad there are some people here to talk to about it because no one I know watches it.  But sometimes I fall asleep while watching and lose track of what's going on....so wtf?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Are they turning Will into a full-on psycho killer too?  Or is he just messing with us (and Hannibal)?  Or am I confusing dream sequences with my own dreams with what's actually happening on the show?
