Hannibal is one of a couple of recent TV shows that has totally defied expectation. Mainly by not being total balls.
Along with the likes of Bates Motel and Fargo, it's a show that could just have been a basic reboot or fan service that just decided to be more. And with creator Bryan Fuller at the helm I actually can't wait to see what they do to make this brave new story intersect with the more familar parts of the tale.
Hannibal is also a very serious show, so its nice to see that the time on set isn't quite so dark and dank and heavy in this gag reel. It's a shorter version of what is set to appear on the home video release later in the year.
My favourite moment has to be when Larry Fishburne reacts exactly as a human would to the news of what is exactly is going on in that dudes skull. Really?!
Hannibal suffered in the ratings for the second season, partly because this season was a lot more about slow paced conversations about very little. But the ending redeemed everything that had gone before and was also enough for NBC to renew for a third season which is said to be speeding things but by giving us two series worth of story at the same time.
And I can't wait to see what Hannibal gets up to.
Hannibal Season 2 is on DVD and blu in September 2014.
