I’ve found myself asking, in watching this show and Dexter, are any serial killers this creative and/or elaborate? And I’m not just referring to Hannibal’s kills.

According to my serial killer research, it tops out with Ed Gein making bowls out of skulls and skin suits. Even so that was years ago.

The amount of creativity and sheer effort in the kills in this show...it really makes one think. I’m sure it’s played up by the creatives behind the show, but it’s possible there are someone’s out there I’ve never heard of.

(Only up through s2e8 so please no spoilers)

I'm noticing the music a lot more on my most recent rewatch and I'm not sure how to categorize it. Obviously the classical pieces aren't, but what about the rest of the show's score?

Towards the end of season 2, when will is trying to play Hannibal, pretending to have killed Freddie- do you think Hannibal was fooled for a moment or was he just ok with playing along?

On the one hand there is the moment where we can smell Freddie's scent and he realizes that she is still alive- but on the other hand he seems to smart to miss it or not suspect Will right from the beginning...

Has anyone heard anything about Hannibal season four?? Seriously, there was a bunch of chatter, and now it's like there isn't any at all. Is it in the works?? Is it not happening?? What is going on???

Hey All!

I first discovered this show early this year and since my initial viewing, I've rewatched it . . . a lot. A whole lot. I realized the other day that some opinions I had of certain characters the first time around are now drastically different and I thought it might make for a fun discussion.

Character 1: Jack Crawford. My feelings towards Jack have changed so dramatically since my first viewing. When I first watched it I was like "okay, this dude is doing what needs to be done in order to try and catch Hannibal". Now when I watch I cannot get over what a total and complete dickhead he is to Will.

Not only with abusing Will's talent with little regard to what it's doing to him mentally, but small things like when he busts into Will's class and dismisses all the students, he tells Will "we're ready to go when you are and you're ready to go now."

Like, Jesus, Jack.

He has zero regard for everything he's doing to Will and I think only feels badly about everything because he has guilt after the fact. But even then it's not enough to stop him from going back to Will for help with the Red Dragon.

And, obviously, Will is a grown man. He can make his own decisions but Jack went back to him - when he was trying to settle down with Molly - knowing he wouldn't be able to say "no".

It's really crazy how my opinion of Jack changed so much on repeated viewings.

The other character I really changed my opinion on was Freddie. She annoyed me so, so much in the beginning and while she's definitely still irritating, the way she genuinely seems to care about Abigail is really endearing. Yeah, she's getting a sweet book deal out of it, but her affection for her seemed really real.

How about you? What characters did you change your opinion on one way or the other?

I plan to watch Silence of the Lambs as I heard its a sequel to red dragon. Should I watch the rest of the movies as well? Any other series?

Edit: Is "The man in high castle" good?

Hey All!

Mads was recently interviewed on the Mark and Me Podcast and I thought folks here may want to give it a listen.

It's short but Hannibal and its possible revival does come up. Mads thinks a fourth season will "absolutely" happen.

Yesterday I posted this on r/HannibalTV (http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/HannibalTV/comments/8x16ra/watched_season_1_and_it_was_a_unique_experience/?st=JJE85BI7&sh=9d63a716) because I wanted to share my thoughts on Season one.

Season One was a unique experience for me and so I decided to watch Season 2. The first episode is so ingeniously clever, really. I love movies that start with the ending, and then don‘t make you question: How is this going to end, but rather: How did we get to this certain end.

But this episode tops it, because it asks: How is this going to end AND How did we get to this point.

So glad the cast hasn‘t changed, and would love to see more of Gillian Anderson in the future.

Now let me start by saying The Silence of The Lambs is one of my top 25 movies of all time and Mads Mikkelsen is one of my favourite actors. So I don‘t know why I did not watch Hannibal for so long.

The first season is visually stunning. And not just „stunning“. But really, probably the best looking Tv Show I have ever seen. The music score is fantastic, the editing and lighting is phenomenal and the acting is superb.

One may say that the story is unoriginal but I don‘t think Hannibal works as a standart crime/FBI show. The dialogue is crisp, smooth, elegant. The characters and their motivations are unique, It has enough mystery to keep you guessing and invested but not too much to make you confused. The show is bloody brutal, but also somewhat poetic and beautiful.

I have never looked more forward to a next season like I do with Hannibal Season 2.

Synopsis:

A nurse at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane is brutally murdered by a patient, Dr. Abel Gideon, in a manner reminiscent of the "Chesapeake Ripper", who hasn't committed a murder in two years, the same number of years Gideon has been incarcerated. While Graham tries to discover whether Gideon truly is the Ripper, Crawford receives a phone call, apparently from the real Ripper, who plays the recorded voice of Miriam Lass, a trainee Crawford had consulting on the Chesapeake Ripper case two years previously when she suddenly disappeared.
