The two of us actually have had very similar thoughts on it really throughout the whole process. When it was first announced we were very skeptical, but as more info came out we got more excited about seeing it. For the first few episodes we were still pretty engaged despite the fact that it diverges from the canon in pretty serious ways. As the series went on, however, it became harder and harder for either of us to stay invested. At this point, neither of us feels that it does the canon justice at all. The characterization of Will and Hannibal and especially the way their relationship is treated in the show is not at all true to Harris’s work.
Personally, I think the show is very interesting and intelligent and I would love to appreciate it as a work separate from the canon, but I think right now I’m too frustrated with the liberties it’s taken to be able to enjoy it at all.
like rich as balls. the guy owns acres and acres of land and has several mercenaries in his employ and is also paying off multiple politicians and administrators in the FBI. we don’t get a specific number for his net worth or anything but it’s safe to say that he’s really, really rich.
Well, Paul was kind of a douchehole who made little effort to conceal the fact that he was ruining Clarice’s career largely because she refused to sleep with him, so given that Hannibal usually keeps an eye on her it’s not a stretch to imagine that he would know about it.
He most likely picked the lock. As far as I know he didn’t steal anything, he simply found the address for Krendler’s lake house.
Hm. That would be interesting, wouldn’t it. But given that Hannibal is set seven years after Silence of the Lambs, I doubt it.
Yes. He killed both the attendant and the driver and then drive the ambulance himself.
I feel like, at that point, there would only be so much that doctors could do. His face was pretty well gone.
There’s also the idea that he might have wanted Hannibal to see his face before he died.
To my knowledge Hannibal is heterosexual. At the end of the book Hannibal he and Clarice are in a sexual/romantic relationship.
Not really. He just wanted to be in contact with her because he liked her.
It was a public place where he would be difficult to find and where it would be difficult to pursue or abduct him.
Are you in search of Lecter lols? Then we're probably Hannibros.
