Where Could Hannibal Go in a Potential Fourth Season?

By

This episode of "The Vulture TV Podcast" was recorded in the dark, by candlelight, with a bottle of Montepulciano provided by Matt Zoller Seitz, who, if you could see him, looked sharp in a suit and tie. How else could we say farewell to Hannibal, the most refined show on television? We discuss where creator Bryan Fuller might take the story in a potential fourth season, and wonder if we really need one. In part two, we wrap up our conversation about David Simon's HBO mini-series Show Me a Hero and its unsettling finale.

This episode contains spoilers in the following discussions:

2:01–21:06: Hannibal, season three
21:06–35:44: Show Me a Hero, episodes five and six
