Random TV Talk III - Do the Russell Coight

Well this sucks:

http://www.avclub.com/article/nbc-ca...annibal-221196

Season 3 will continue to air as scheduled. Remains to be seen if it then gets picked up elsewhere. The production company apparently had a stipulation that the show must air on American network television, not sure if that still stands.

It's a pretty expensive show, cannot see it getting picked up elsewhere, but, I could be wrong.

Bummed that this will be the last season but it's sort of a miracle they even ok'd a third season, considering the ratings.

3 seasons of this show on network television is a minor miracle, agreed.

I don't think they ever managed to get the rights to Silence of the Lambs, so ending after the events of Red Dragon could be a good way to finish the show. I wouldn't want to see this version of Will sidelined and having him go after Buffalo Bill wouldn't be as effective.

The best shows always die young. and Hannibal was the best thing in TV bar none for the past three years. Here's praying it gets picked up on Netflix or somewhere. if there's any show that can adapt to new deals or budgets or forms, it's Hannibal, so if they made the legal logistics work it could thrive somewhere for sure.

More thoughts based on information from the shows Wiki page:

 
This season is again split in half, with the Italian meal theme titles running in the first half and the Red Dragon storyline commencing in the back half.

These episodes feel like a mash up of Hannibal and Hannibal Rising, with Will chasing Hannibal across Europe and Gillian Anderson filling the Clarice role. Assuming he's imprisoned during the Red Dragon storyline and Will retires afterwards, all that's missing is The Silence of the Lambs. Do we really need another version of that? Mason Verger is due back this season too, so it does sound as if most plot threads will be resolved.

So it's a shame to see the most visually striking and unique show cancelled, but it won't have to suffer a drawn out decline in quality either.

That's actually totally fair. And I'm sure Fuller and Co. crafted this season knowing cancellation was always a distinct possibility.

The fact that the near plot-less, hallucinatory fever dream that was the second episode of this season aired on network television...well, that's all we could ever ask for...

Cancelled at the exact day I was planning to start watching the show.

It seems to be worth it despite the early cancellation.

God yes please watch it anyway. Even if this is the last season, it will be such a fulfilling and complete work in a lot of ways. But already Fuller has come out and said they've been actively pursuing other avenues for the show to continue, and apparently it was fairly cheap on NBC's end in terms of licensing so who knows.

For some reason thought he was much older. I watched 8IE pretty regularly as a kid.

I watched it too, but, for whatever reason, I couldn't tell you a damn thing about it. Just don't remember anything specific.
