    Good news for Hannibal season 4, perhaps?

    That really sucks. Their vision for this was really impressive thus far. I can see there being budget problems though bc it's on Starz. I'd imagine Starz gotta be stingy in general.

    I had high hopes for the show. The book is my favorite novel of all time. The show felt a little rushed in the early episodes but it had really started to improve. I'll be disappointed if it ends up being scrapped, but it may be for the best at this point before it has a chance to really suck.

    Looks like this show is crashing and burning. Starz really fucked this all up.

    I thought the first season was good, but I think you could tell they couldn't go as far as they could being stuck on Starz and their budget. It's a shame HBO passed on it. Netflix would have been great as well.

    I only watched the first episode of this season so far, but it was great. This show is swinging for the rafters. Big ideas, just like Gaiman's comics.

    Season was pretty uneven, but I like where we're headed. With some stability behind the scenes, I hope season 3 is better. Not enough actually happened this season too.

    Yeah, the drama behind S2 sucks. The behind-the-scenes tension and showrunnerlessness (hey, I made a new word) shows, as the actors actually had to improvise a lot of scenes. Still, I'm glad that they worked hard enough to keep the series afloat, and even brought Gaiman himself on board, after losing their showrunners. S3 seems to have a new showrunner, and the final episode of S2 was actually the one closest to the majesty of S1, especially when Mr. World unravels his plan. I'm still as excited as before.

    As for the soundtrack, while I enjoyed Brian Reitzell's work musically (he even wrote most of the series' songs and brought along famous singers), I disliked it production-wise. It was too bass-y, too flash-y, and it eventually became tiring. The new composers have potential; I especially liked that "theatrical" episode with Mr. Wednesday as a showman.

    Loved what we learned about suicide in that episode.
