Though it seemed NBC was set to axe "Hannibal", the show has endured with a new season premiering the first week of June...but how much longer will it last? I, for one, do hope the series extends beyond the third season and that if bumbling NBC eventually tosses it, the likes of Amazon, Netflix or A&E will be come to the rescue.
Because the series has haunted me so, I've decided to establish a post for my reflections. (Should have done so for "Bates Motel" this past season, but hey, there's always next time around, right?)
Anyway, as I'm sure many of you will attest, "Hannibal" is an extraordinary concoction: a complex, thinking person's plunge into splatter and the macabre, which also dares to probe moral issues. Mads Mikkelsen is superb as the calm but chilling Dr. Lecter, and the supporting cast, which includes Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne and Gillian Anderson, is equally enthralling.
Anyway, here's wishing the best to the new season and (with bloodied fingers crossed) a long, gruesome life to the devilish saga. Bon appetit!
