Anyone else watching this. I really like it. Very creepy. Since I like it and its in its first season it will most likely be cancelled.

We watched the first season. It's kind of slow but got more interesting as the pieces started to come together. Haven't started season 2 yet. Will probably wait a bit, maybe see if it gets renewed.

This is where I am -- haven't watched a single episode yet because I've been waiting for the final verdict and so far, reviews have been mixed.  I like the idea of it, but TV history has taught me that the execution may very well leave a lot to be desired...

The execution is quite good. I think it won't draw the audience it needs to survive, show is DAMN dark. I've enjoyed it so far and will continue

so as not to hijack the Gotham thread.  found an interesting read/interview with director Bryan Fuller about Hannibal, Graham, Mason Verger and etc.  if you're a fan its worth a read.

I still watch every week, but that show literally puts me to sleep.  I think it's the soft music and dark colors.

It's gotten better now that it's established itself and developed some character tension. Early on it was barely hanging on for us. If it was up to the wife, who is a serial killer/gore nut, we would have bailed. I got a kick out of the cooking scenes, so we stuck with it. 

 

I think it's the only network drama I'm watching. It's been a long time since I watched a network drama.

ya, I don't watch network dramas much (nbc/abc/cbs/fox), imho, best dramas on TV are on the cable networks like AMC and FX (for instance), but of the big 4 networks I still think Hannibal is the best drama on the major networks.  I agree that it started a touch slow though it has risen well and seems to be developing an audience.  in its genre, I think only American Horror Story equals it.
