Forbes: 'Hannibal' Season 3 Review: The Bold Gets Bolder

Great TV can come from anywhere. However, as weíve already seen this week through UnREAL and Mr. Robot, there are some sources itís more expected from than others, and itís through this prism how many view NBCís Hannibal. The world at large (at least in regard to those that watch it based on the current ratings) seems to be in agreement that Hannibal is great television despite calling NBC home, and the reasons for this are rather clear. Hannibal is interesting, dynamic, complex and, most of all, bold. Heading into season three, itís that last quality that can best describe the first three new episodes of 2015 for they are indeed the boldest pieces of storytelling the show has produced in its time since beginning in 2013.

Hannibal is in the prime of its creativity, and that statement comes through no clearer than it does this season. Nothing about the show feels cheap, and every new reveal is completely earned. Often, the show goes to places that take the audience right to the brink of their expectation before shattering their assumptions into more pieces than the psychopathís tea glass. If anyone was waiting for Hannibal to be let off the leash NBC may or may not have had it on, the wait is over. Season three is a Hannibal unhinged. Season three is the Hannibal everyone has been waiting to see.

Really nice OT. Shame that I'll have to abandon it as soon as the show starts, I'm not getting a TV subscription and I'm not dealing with the other option which is the worst video player in the world.

At least Netflix Nordic is quick to get the show after it airs, but the wait will be unbearable.

Also, nice to hear that UnREAL is good. The concept is potentially fantastic and interesting -- I'm glad they executed it properly without falling into the tropes of the shows they're commenting on.

(and I mean duh, of course Hannibal is fantastic)

Often, the episode switches from a 16:9 to 2:21 aspect ratio and shifts in color palette at times to signify specific narrative tools are being used. Just on a purely visual level, the premiere episode is, quite possibly, the most avant-garde hour of small screen media to ever exist.

yoooooooooooo

Sorry if this has been asked, but does Hannibal typically go on Hulu Plus after each episode? Since it's on NBC.

I really hope this wins a bunch of Emmys or ratings spike or something. I dont think I can take the stress at the end of each season of it being renewed or not. Such a phenomenal show, shame its not getting the recognition it deserves.

- BD: ĎHannibalí Season Three Is Deliciously Different *Spoilers*

As much as Hannibalís second season worked to redefine the narrative Ė season three elevates it in pretty much every way possible. Itís a revelation for the character, plot progression, and visual insanity. It firmly re-establishes Hannibal as the best horror show on television, and simply cannot be missed.

- EW Review.

Now in its third season, Hannibal remains the most engrossing (and gross) serial-killer drama on television, and the most beautiful. Here, the acid never stops kicking in.

The moment NBC drops the show is the moment a volcanic bidding war erupts among the cable and streaming giants.

Which is to say, it's probably never going to be canceled - it's minimal risk to NBC because of its unique production structure, and unlike miscellany like Constantine, the franchise itself actually carries some weight (even if the ratings haven't borne that out yet).
