Yes, I've seen those. Just found out they're selling the episode on iTunes so I may do that.

Are you talking about the series about the titular character who is a psychiatrist by day and a cannibalistic serial killer by night?

Yeah, the "webisodes" on NBC's site is the full episode 4, but, censored.

The episode 4 on iTunes is the full uncensored episode.

 

I knew when I watched episode 4 (really episode 5) on TV, it felt like there was something missing. It wasn't until later that night my brother had called me to inform me the real episode 4 had been pulled.

Yes. "Hannibal" Lecter. Inspired by the characters from "Red Dragon" by Thomas Harris.

Why? It was pulled from the air, but is still available to watch online. I'm just glad they didn't pull it period, and was never to be seen.

I understand why they did it (out of respect for the Sandy Hook/Boston Bombing victims: even though the episode was filmed before Sandy Hook shooting.)

 

I'm amazed that NBC has gotten away with most of the stuff they've shown. I applaud them for keeping their promise of "pushing the envelope of what you can show on network television." Dang straight!

 

It doesn't even feel like a "NBC" show. It feels like it belongs on HBO or Showtime.

This is just Hannibal.


And ya, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. They're really pushing the envelope in terms of violence and whatnot, but I suppose the show does air later than normal. I mean, the mushroom episode, then the angels? That was disgusting.

Yeah, they really are pushing the envelope. I've yet to see the episode that was pulled from a couple weeks back. I think the subject matter had something to do reminiscent of the Sandy Hook tragedy or the Boston Marathon bombings.


From what I've read online, the fourth episode wasn't pulled 'cause of the Boston Marathon bombings. If you check this link out, Hannibal TV show, it'll tell you why.
