Hannibal Season 2 Premiere Review “Kaiseki”

Before Hannibal was set to premiere last spring, there were plenty of reservations about the program. First, it was on NBC Thursday at 10 PM; a notorious dead zone where shows have failed for NBC sinceER went off the air. Second, it starred a lot of people you’d heard of (or maybe not), but no one who had had a real moment in long time. Third, there wasn’t a fervor over more Hannibal content. The movies post-Silence of the Lambs had bastardized the product to the point where no one was that interested (the ratings certainly proved that was the case). Finally, it was on NBC (couldn’t resist). It seemed destined to be another over-the-top serial killer drama on a slate filled with over-the-top serial killer drama.
