above quote was before "He's in the pantry", which is my new favorite.
Season 2 was really fantastic. Anybody who didn't give this show a chance because during season 1 since it was risking cancellation and didnt want to get invested - its been renewed for a 3rd season, which means it will go its entire 6 season run (was originally designed for 7 seasons, but the writers (not the network) have combined 2 of them, though they haven't said yet which 2 - smart money is combining 3/4, ie the "on the run" and "red dragon" seasons, mostly eliminating the on the run, and having red dragon occur shortly after getting locked up.)
Anyway - this show really is one of the best shows out there right now, and its getting very little attention so far. Season 1 was good. Season 2 was right up there in the conversation with True Detective and Breaking Bad - which is amazing for a network show to be able to hang with those guys. Get in on it now. Don't be the guy that started watching Breaking Bad when the season 5 hype became overwhelming. Get in on the Hannibal train before its cool.
Oh, and in response to previous question about "realm of silence of the lambs" - that quote probably had to do with the show producers currently not having the rights to the character Clarice Starling. Yea i know, crazy, they have Hannibal, but not her. So that season may play out a little bit differently.
