50 Greatest TV shows ever made 13

From a purely visual standpoint, Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal is one of the most unique and attention-grabbing shows ever seen on television, and the creator had the narrative ambitions to back it up.

More than five years after being canceled, fans are still calling for a fourth season to be picked up by somebody, whether it be a network or a streaming service.

Haunting, dazzling, graphic and never anything less than a masterclass in technical filmmaking from the costumes to the set via the performances and the score, Hannibal was far too good to be pulled from the airwaves when the story had barely scratched the surface of its potential.
