Ten Things I Love About NBC’s ‘Hannibal’

In honour of the final episode of Hannibal, which was a real killer, I thought I’d reblog an older post of mine from earlier in the year when I first started watching the series. Season three was a bit of a crazy one with some beautiful imagery that I may visit here on the blog one day. I wish that there was more to see, because a) the show is fantastic, and b) there were a whole bunch of cliffhangers in the final episode, if you know what I mean. But in the mean time, here are ten things that I love about NBC’s Hannibal.

What did you guys think of the Hannibal finale? Will it be counted as another in a long list of shows that were cancelled too soon? Or did it finish right on time? Let me know what you think!

FILM GRIMOIRE

I’m sure you’ve all heard of NBC’s Hannibal before – the general story is based on the book Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, with the character of Hannibal himself being featured in the classic film The Silence of the Lambs (1991). The very name of Hannibal may cause you to recall the image of a psychotic serial killer in a mask, making strange hissing noises in a prison cell, and perhaps even eating the faces of a prison guard or two. But Hannibal is much more than that – an atmospheric, truly creepy piece of televised art that has captured my imagination and given me some seriously strange nightmares.

The television series takes an interesting spin on the novel and original film, with flawed genius criminal profiler Will…

  1. I love this show so much! I always wait until the season is done to watch a show so I don’t have to wait a week in between episodes so I’ll be watching thing this newest season soon. This show is so smart and the acting is incredible.

    1. Oh yeah, binge-watching a series you love is the best thing. It really is such an intelligent show, and Mads Mikkelsen is amazing. I think it would be best to see season three in one go because I found it so difficult to wait between each episode!

      1. Exactly! I’m way too impatient. But this show is truly amazing.

    1. Thanks so much Lauren! 😀

  2. Definitely planning to start in on this show once I’m caught up on Game of Thrones.

    1. You’ve got a lot of great television-watching ahead!

  3. I just watched the last episode yesterday and I’m absolutely bereft. I don’t want to live in a world without Hannibal! I think I’ll go back to the start and watch them all again, while crossing all available body parts that it’ll get picked up for more episodes or a film, so we can see what Bryan Fuller has in store for our favourite cannibal. [sob]

    1. I am so late replying to your comment, but I don’t want to live in a world without Hannibal either! I’m so sad they’re not making more. It was just too good for mainstream television. You’d hope that Netflix or similar would pick it up, but it’s been a bit too long for a good announcement like that! 😦

  4. I love absolutely everything about this show!

    1. I’m super late in replying but me too! It’s one of those shows that hits all the marks. Too bad it’s all done and dusted.
