Pros and Cons

Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal Gets a Premiere Date, Countdown Begins Until NBC Inevitably Cancels It


Because we all know that’s what happens with Bryan Fuller shows.

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal, a prequel to Silence of the Lambs in which the always-excellent Mads Mikkelsen is Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy is his FBI agent protégé. Oh, and Gillian Anderson is Lecter’s therapist. And Gina Torres and Lawrence Fishburne are there, too. Basically, (fingers crossed) it’s going to be awesome. And now we know when it’s going to premiere: Thursday, April 4th, at 10pm.

That’s good because… well, it has a release date. The not-so-good is that the Thursday 10pm timeslot is a pretty awful one, having seen four TV shows come and go in the last season and a half alone (Prime Suspect, The Firm, Awake, and Do No Harm, which Hannibal is replacing.)

It’d be nice if it had a better timeslot, but if it’s replacing a Thursday 10pm show… well, what are you going to do? I just hope NBC does a good job advertising the show (though its record with that sort of thing is less than perfect).

    I’m looking forward to this because I love everyone in it on an individual basis, this is like an awesomesauce stew. But it does seem to be a little out of Fuller’s purview(having never seen Wonderfalls, so I could be wrong)

    I love Bryan Fuller, but I agree this seems pretty different from his usual. Maybe he knows Americas love of serial killers, and he’s just desperate to make something that doesn’t get quickly canceled.

    I could do The Following with the Pushing Daisies palette.

    I adore Mads Mikkelson. I think my local cinema does as well since they always have random screenings of his back catalogue. Joy.

    I hope this succeeds and is as good as it could be.
