Mason Verger appears in the film Hannibal. The order of the books and films are Red Dragon > Silence of The Lambs > Hannibal but the show mixes it up. All of the stuff in season 3 with Hannibal in Italy and Mason Verger is from the film Hannibal and in the show Red Dragon is set after that. The show would have done some version of Silence of the Lambs but it got cancelled.


Were they losing viewers during the second series and into the third? They really didn't help themselves with how dense parts of S3 were, but I do wonder if they lost more viewers due to some of those difficult to penetrate episodes.

The reports Ive read are the people were put off with the violence, some of it made me look away (the dragon biting off that guys mouth, verger eating his own face :slol: ) and thats why it got canned, I got lost a few times, but the programme quickly redirected itself so I grasped what was going on, the only thing I struggled with was the amount of characters coming and going/dying as they were all so well done.
Fabian Delph is a banana split.

I bet they'd have kept watching for 10 seasons if the show had stuck with the supernatural CSI-alike theme. :fp: Ingrates.

The ratings were on a continual decline throughout, the only reason NBC hadn't cancelled it sooner is because so much of the funding for the show came from overseas so it was really cheap for them.

Just finished season 3.....

Wow. An amazing series overall with 1 and 2 being perfect TV. Season 3 disc 1 was very slow and I really thought it had jumped the shark but then it got good and then very good and then holy crap this is amazing.

Easily the best version of Hannibal ever filmed, just so watchable and interesting.

Very moving in parts too.

So pleased I watched it all in one go and spoiler free.

I'm slowly working my way through season 3 and it's just building so fantastically. I've always liked Manhunter over all the other Lecter films so the fact I've now hit episode 8 makes it even better. They've lifted out so much from that film, it's brilliant.

EDIT: Is there any explanation as to why Lecter's cell is so ridiculously ornate?

I think if it being suplimented by his memory palace. I imagine it's not really that nice, although the place Lecter gets moved to in the silence of the lambs is quite ornate.

Probably part of Alana offering him niceties as a means to leverage Hannibal through his needs to be treated with dignity. That or because she wants to keep him sweet because of what really happened with Margot and Mason.

It's not his real cell, just what Hannibal sees (and an excuse to keep the set designers happy) They showed what it actually looked like a brief couple of times.

Even without his mind palace its still a fair huge and ornate looking cell.

Yeah, Alana said pretty much that in the last episode I watched. Even referencing the threat to take away his books (can't remember if that was in Lambs or Manhunter)

Just watched the season 2 finale, just strawberry floating wow.

I'd forgotten about the Abbigail reveal too and that she pushed Elana out the window.

It's an immense show. Would have loved to have seen where season 4 went.

Arguably the best episode of the show.

Holy crap I'm really tempted to try and win some stuff. I'd love to own some Stag Antlers and maybe The Red Dragons teeth. I'd also buy Alana's dresses although I might eat them.
