Welcome back, Fannibals! It's been a long wait, but Bryan Fuller's incredible, dark and beautifully haunting take on Dr. Lecter has finally returned, and if the premiere episode is any indication, we're in for one hell of a season of Hannibal.

Hannibal is the rare network show with an utterly unique visual palette - even if it's one many might find distinctly unpalatable.

With the first two episodes of season two of Bryan Fuller's brilliant reimagining of Thomas Harris' Hannibal... the creators of what I considered to be the best network drama of 2013 set the stage to possibly top their first remarkable season.

The psychological cat-and-mouse games the characters play are more interesting and a welcome respite from the intense, horrifying serial killer stories.

Hannibal's second season elevates the surprisingly-high bar set by the first - creating binge-worthy television that makes you, like the titular character, covet for more.

If you're not watching Hannibal, you're missing out on one of the finest, most viscerally entertaining programs television (network or cable) has to offer.

The show raises many of [its] concepts to high art. It's a testament to Fuller's writing, Slade's vision, and the work of the many talented actors in this series. It all makes for a delicious opening course to the show's second season.

Per usual, this is horror creativity at its finest.

Having used its hiatus to miraculous effect, the show... is much better than it once was, perhaps the guiltiest pleasure on television at this time.

This remains must watch TV.

From the unofficial slogan of the show ("Eat the rude") to the food-theme episode titles ("Amuse-Bouche," "Potage"), [Bryan] Fuller leavens the grimness with just enough irony.

At its heart, Hannibal is one of TV's best examinations of the nature of evil, but it's also a dark pulp thriller, with a rich sense of momentum and spine-tingling fun.

March 3, 2014 Full Review Source: AV Club

Assuming that Hannibal manages to keep going, I firmly believe that this show will serve as the proverbial wrecking ball in demolishing the final barrier in the cable/network divide. Hyperbole be damned-it's that much of a game-changer.

The premiere's opening whetted the appetite and got me ready for the twists and turns that were coming our way.

Everything ultimately boils down to Bryan Fuller's brilliant vision filled with luscious production design and beautifully macabre dreamscapes.

Hannibal is a terrifically performed, stylishly shot TV series that does, in stellar fashion, exactly what is sets out to do.

[It] is a feast of macabre freakishness, going beyond the realm of guilty pleasure in a sustained nightmare of horrific yet elegantly hypnotic design.

The show's greatest asset is its mastery of tone, a quality most shows don't have the time or inclination to get right.

February 28, 2014 Full Review Source: Vulture

Bryan Fuller's delicate rendering contains enough beautiful images and unexpected moments to operate a little longer, but this little lamb is perched on rickety legs.

The last thing television needs is more serial killer dramas. But when they're this well made, this smart and creative and unexpectedly funny? Then, yes, more Hannibal, please.

February 27, 2014 Full Review Source: HitFix

Somehow it has become an engrossing, psychologically dense show that is also visually stunning. Hannibal is the kind of gem seldom found on network TV.

February 26, 2014 Full Review Source: Slate

Unlike Fox's The Following, it's the thinking man's serial-killer drama, a twisted tale that never trolls for cheap scares but is plenty terrifying.

For its authentic engagement with despair, Hannibal earns its wrenching nihilism.
