I'm not sure, but for some reason, I think new members are started at 10 thumbs up. No idea why they do that. You would see it in his post if he actually got a thumbs up and there is nothing there. I've noticed that with some other members with one post as well.

It's true that since the last software update you start out with 10 thumbs up, but I suspect it's more of a glitch in the code than an effort by AVS to help boost new members' self esteem. wink.gif

While I do think this I one of the best shows on TV, if this does follow the movies and next season is basically "Red Dragon" moving into "Silence of the Lambs", I feel like there won't be much interest in it. I mean, we already know how all that plays out and a show with Hannibal locked up constantly really doesn't seem that appealing.

The magic of Hannibal to me is the wonderful job it does of really showing us just how devious and diabolical the brilliant Hannibal really is. He will do anything to anybody simply not to feel bored (and to supply his fridge with more long pig). The show's spin on Will Graham has been equally fascinating. Although Thomas Harris' books show us a man who is brilliant but not quite in step with the rest of the world, the show puts him in horrible circumstances, thanks to the vicious but sneaky Dr. Lecter. Watching Will deal with a mind altering disease and the wrongful accusation that he is a serial killer has made Hannibal endlessly interesting, to me at least.

My take is it shows exactly the opposite... how dumb everyone else is. Admittedly, I don't follow the show (closely) but hasn't he been excused of the murders? If so, by following him for fifteen minutes he would be history. With the number of kills and their visibility Barney Fife would catch him. :)

Apparently you have not read Harris' books either. Hannibal Lector is a brilliant monster of mythic proportions. If you are unwilling to suspend disbelief to the extent you can accept that diabolical Hannibal could easily figure ways to mislead the authorities. you probably should avoid both Harris' books and this show.

I was mildly disturbed of how he dispatched, displayed and even cooked Beverly (yeah just a kidney but hers).

Man this show just gets getting better each week, I sense that Alana will be next up in the dinner plate,or maybe Freddie, if they keep killing good looking women..

Of course in practical terms the showis ridiculous. There's no way for someone to create essentially art installations in public places without being spotted/seen on surveillance camera/interrupted. Hannibal is like Julia Child/Jack the Ripper/Damien Hirst/Casper the Friend Ghost all rolled into one.

My comment was more in the vain of who's getting killed and who has already been accused. I'll go along with most anything although the stretch here really reduces the characters' dimensions. They appear to only exist 43 minutes a week as they certainly aren't doing anything else the rest of the time.:)

 

On Dexter if I remember they had a killer who also displayed his art work in public places. Since the victims and their displays weren't as closely defined you could see him being elusive to a much large degree. Also, I don't believe any consultants had excused him of the crimes...

 

Overall it goes back to my zero investment in the characters... even they don't seem to care who the killer is... why should I care. Now as I have said since day one it does have style... for me if it had some substance it would be great. Much like Eyes Wide Shut made for a good movie experience after x hours you'd get tired of dreaming.

This show is all about the atmosphere, the journey, the mind games. Of course, setting up all those elaborate cadaver tableaus, especially alone and often in public places, would be impossible. That's not the point. You just accept it as something very disturbed super-villains could do and go along for the ride. I don't require a show like this to be anchored in reality.

Nobody could possibly be as evil and disturbed as Hannibal Lecter while being such a brilliant psychiatrist as well as so erudite, urbane, and culinarily sophisticated. Even when he has no dinner partners he still whips up these glorious examples of gorgeous food-porn. Heck, if my wife is out of town, I'm fortunate to heat up a frozen dinner without burning it. tongue.gif

I think that's a given and on many levels they do it very well. As such it goes back to my earlier post.. like a fashion runway model I'll stare for awhile with great attention. However at some point I'll realize our relationship is rather shallow. :)

 

One of my favorite movies is Dark City. It's stylized similarly and the character's depth is missing (by design) and it's a wonderful journey. For the movie it plays perfectly as it does for Hannibal up to a point (for me).

so I'm the only one who watches this show close to or in real time?

Last night was so far the best since S2.01 . All the buildup........ and ... here we are. The intricacy of photography on the food prep was great, and the sinking in/realization with Gideon was great

Pretty much. :)  On NBC, "Hannibal" slipped to 2.32 million viewers and a 0.8 key demo rating.

 

I'm down to only a few shows before I get to it... that is if I get there before Sunday night...

Don't watch anything live, but try to get to this one ASAP. Such a shame about the ratings but as a rule, the smarter the show, the tougher it is to find a big audience these days. frown.gif

.

Believe me... if the audience doubled or tripled after they figured in +3 and +7 day DVR viewers, it wouldn't be teetering on the brink of cancellation. Apparently foreign sales are strong, so it doesn't really even cost NBC that much money. Nevertheless, the Nielsen Gods have spoken, and they are the Voice of Doom. frown.gif

Top Chef shows has nothing on this one... so much food! what were those little arms with claws?

So, I gather Alana was drugged so Hannibal could slip out, do his deed, come back like nothing happened and have an alibi, right?

I wonder what he did with all the organs he harvested from the people, at least he didn't serve them up at the dinner party, I guess he knew that Jack was getting close and decided on animal meat instead.

"Compliments to the Chef" by Gideon.. ROFL..

Biggest food porn episode yet! Yeah, pretty smart of Hannibal to not use his victim's parts for the dinner party. That worried look on his face, when Jack requested a "to go" box, had me worried. eek.gif

Alana's willingness to sleep with Hannibal was an unexpected bonus. It provided him with the perfect alibi. She probably was just asleep, not drugged, as she wasn't groggy the next morning when she surprised Jack with her presence. Of course, Hannibal, being a medical doctor, could have calibrated her "roofie" precisely enough so she'd never suspect.

You have to wonder why Hannibal decided to use the earlier Chesapeake Ripper's reserved body parts for the fishing lures suspending the hospital orderly though. That, and the discovery of the missing girl will certainly lead to Will's release. Perhaps this is Hannibal's way of luring Will out for a final confrontation, as a way of tying up that loose end that is now a persistent threat?

And Hannibal serving Gideon up his own leg as a "last supper" was priceless. Eddie Izzard is going to be here in Charlotte doing his stand-up show this week. I ought to go and ask him how "Leg of Izzard" was. tongue.gif

They made a point of showing him wipe the glass (and check to make sure she was out before going out for activities), so she was definitely given something. After all, it takes a while to kidnap a victim and string one of his guards up by meticulously prepared fishing lures.

I think Hannibal misses Will and wants his friend back. Plus, maybe he wants to see if Will considers doing his own dirty work after being released.

It's really a shame this show hasn't caught on, although it is hard to stomach on occasion. I really feel it's the most satisfying in terms of writing, acting, and presentation on TV right now...and I'm not just saying that as someone who appreciates all of Fuller's previous works.

Yes, I remember that now. He must have drugged her. Still, he got "lucky" in more ways than one. If she hadn't decided to sleep with him, he wouldn't have had an alibi.

I think the wink was just to show Chilton that Hannibal knows that Chilton now suspects him (Chilton even called him "Hannibal the Cannibal" to Jack), and as a result, his days are numbered.

Hannibal also knows Jack suspects him as well. We can now see the path that will lead to the shocking events of the season opening flash-forward. Hannibal is probably plotting to eliminate anyone who might pose a threat to him, including Will and Alana.

Please tell me that one of those Hannibal drawings was of Ralph Fiennes (the Tooth Fairy).

It looked like him and that would be an awesome lead in.
