Hold the Fava Beans, the Chianti is Here: "Hannibal" Extended Preview

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | March 14, 2013 | Comments ()


Just once, I wish I could open up a post with “Hannibal” in the title to discover that the project is actually about the original man to make that name famous. The Father of Strategy, the man who brought Rome to its knees. He occupied most of Italy for nearly fifteen years, annihilating every army Rome raised. Always outnumbered, always in enemy territory, and never quite able to win the war despite winning all the battles for a decade and a half. Oh yeah, and there’s this guy we made up who eats people. Let’s make a show about that one instead.

Here’s the extended preview for “Hannibal”:

Okay, so for the first chunk of that, it just feels like a very special episode of “Criminal Minds”, but then it hints at going someplace deeper. It’s the psychological element that will make or break this show.

Of course, I count at least six different people that Will is attempting to resuscitate, so apparently Hannibal is planning it so he always finds them just before they die. Which could be either very intriguing, or it’s just a hilarious artifact of the way that the trailer is cut.

“Hannibal” premieres on April 4th.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    NBC? Does not have the bawls to let this show be good. It will be neutered before it ever flashes across your screen. Which is a shame.

  • nachosanchez

    It'll open to strong ratings and critical acclaim, then NBC will put it on a 6 month hiatus and replace it with Celebrity Apprentice, not telling people when it's coming back. Because NBC.

  • Uriah_Creep

    They also show TWO episodes of Whitney on Thursday nights and then a so-called comedy with Josh Gad (1600 Penn). It's like they want to fail.

  • Guest

    Still needs more Caroline Dhavernas... but looks promising.

    For those of you who can't watch the above because of " Region Restrictions" see the link below (I assume because I can't actually watch the link above):


  • Yes, but will Hannibal consume human flesh? If only they would have included a few shots indicating that sort of thing in the trailer.

    Such a great episode. Especially the rakes.
