While we do not typically report on any TV series here on Lost in Reviews, Hannibal is my exception. I started watching the show from the premiere and the finale for Season 1 is on Thursday night on NBC. This is not an ordinary TV show. It is calculated art. The images, story, and acting are so superb, you would think that it would be on Showtime or HBO. A second season is already a go for the cast and crew (Thank you, NBC).
I am attending San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) for the first time this year, and a press release about Hannibal popped into my inbox (see below). A Hannibal panel will be on Thursday, July 18 at 6:45 PM in Room 6A. Executive producer Bryan Fuller, producer/director David Slade, producer Martha De Laurentiis, and star Hugh Dancy. The only thing that could make this better is if Mads Mikkelsen was going to be there also.
