* LoveItOrHateIt: The show has gained this reputation after Season 2. You either love the twisted relationship between Hannibal and Will and deeply enjoy the horror and the writing, or you can't get past the ''very'' gruesome death scenes. Most people are happy that Fuller's curse appears to have been broken, however.
** The heightened "pretentious art film" feel (Fuller's words) of Season 3. Viewers either love the heightened surreal imagery, or wish the show would spend less time on it for plot development and clarification.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomRivalry:
** With ''Series/TheFollowing'', due to the fact that both started airing around the same time and featured very similar themes. The rivalry came about because both series were courting the same niché demographic and [[FanDumb thought the other was stealing viewers]], with fans and critics [[DuelingWorks frequently coming to blows]] because The Following fans thought Hannibal was too pretentious while Hannibal fans thought The Following's premise was dumb and relied too heavily on lazy writing. Many fans failed to notice that the general public lost interest in The Following as time went on and Hannibal was largely ignored by the general public [[AcclaimedFlop from the start]].

** Clarice a bit as well, in the first half of Hannibal, after the press has smeared her for the way the way the DC drug bust went, even though she and John were the only people actually doing their job right.

* TooSoon: Why the planned fourth episode, "Œuf", was pulled from the schedule on NBC. Bryan Fuller himself insisted on it largely because of the December 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting (which occurred after the episode was filmed). Although Fuller has since decided that the episode could have aired just fine; the shooting was fresh in everybody's minds during the show's filming, but not on the episode's air-date.

* AlasPoorVillain: While all fans unanimously agree that Hannibal [[spoiler: was at [[KickTheDog his]] [[DisproportionateRetribution most]] [[TheBadGuyWins monstrous]] in "Mizumono",]] it's difficult to not feel even a tinge of sympathy for him when [[spoiler: he expresses his hurt over Will's betrayal.]]

** SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Though in hindsight, comparing it to the insanely brutal and over-the-top "artistic" murders in the 2013 series, eating someones brain might come across as rather quaint today. [[spoiler: As if to drive this point home, the series replicates the scene with Will Graham in place of Krendler. Hannibal doesn't actually get to eat Will's brain as they are interrupted, but they nevertheless top it by showing us Hannibal ''drilling into Will's skull while Jack Crawford watches''.]]

* {{Asexuality}}: Reguarding the character of Frederick Chilton. Don't you find it odd that in a show like Hannibal where most main characters seems to have been involved in some kind of relationship and/or have all shown sexual attraction and where EveryoneIsBi (Will slept with Margot, married Molly and is strangely attracted to Hannibal; Jack [[spoiler: was]] married to Bella; Hannibal slept with Alana and Bedelia, and is in love with Will; Alana slept with both Hannibal and Margot and became engaged with the latter; Mason Verger was a sexual sadist who raped his sister; Abel Gideon and Garett Jacob Hobbs were married with kids, Francis Dolarhyde became the boyfriend of Reba McLane) a character like Chilton, with his number of appearences, is never seen or even mentionned to have somekind of relation? In the novels, he clumsily tried to seduce Starling, and in Hannibal Clarice meet a woman who claim to have been engaged with Chilton, but in the series Chilton never made ''one'' attempt at seduction despites his good looks and proud personality. Could it be because he just doesn't care about it?

* CompleteMonster: Mason Verger is a warped pedophile who had the misfortune to run afoul of Hannibal and ended up disfigured and crippled in a wheelchair for it. Seeking revenge, Mason murders and schemes so he can capture Hannibal and feed him to specially trained wild pigs. Now impotent, Mason obtains satisfaction by [[WouldHurtAChild torturing and abusing children]] and drinks martinis made from their tears. Mason also uses his own sister as a servant, having kept her in line with a series of violent rapes earlier in life. Fortunately, the film only implies he was a pedophile, [[LikeFatherLikeSon like his father]], with any other gruesome details pertaining solely to his RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
