    Watched every episode up to half way through the current series. It's excellent Gonzo. Or was until the latest series where it took the arty farty stuff way too far.

    The first 3 or 4 series are brilliant though.

    The only worry I have is that it's a new case very week and only a smal part of the story is developing the main characers, does it move on and start to be more about the main characters? I'm not a fan of the current style long term.

    Thanks, I'm enjoying it but was concerned it was going to be that same format every week.

    I'm near the end of season 2 now, really good show. From what I've seen Season 3 is the last one.

    The final season is brilliant got 4 left and it's a real gem of a programme only 3 seasons long and just builds into something fantastic. I hope the ending lives up to my expectations.

    I'd be pretty sure they will go for a 4th series with it though even though they said this was the finale.

    The very end scene after Will and Hannibal leap from the cliff shows Bedelia (Gillian Anderson) sitting at the dinner table, her leg is missing in the scene...look again incase you missed it first time and also their are 3 dinner plates set at the table. That tells me Hannibal and Will are alive and Hannibal is making good on his promise of having Bedelia for supper <laugh>

    Good programme, can deviate beyond the strange at times but still gripping viewing.

    Of course Hannibal is alive. He woos Claris Starling in The silence of the lambs don't he?

    It was axed for poor ratings but the director wants to either get a deal with another network or do a film. It would be good to finish it off properly. I'll take a look at that scene at the end I missed it completely.

    Although Will Graham doesn't actually appear in Silence of the lambs he is mentioned a few times. It is said he is living in Florida,an alcoholic with a face that's hard to look at. So he obviously survives as well.

    As previously stated I found the third series hard work at times. They went too far with the arty farty stuff imo.

    I found that you really have to treat the programme as complete fantasy, it's not a standard detective/serial killer show it gets very strange. I liked that side of it though.

    I can see why it would not be everyones fav but was surprised it got axed.

    It may come back if another network takes it up though, appears Fuller wants a season 4. I wouldn't want it coming back though unless it had a solid storyline to it.
