It goes back to honoring Thomas Harris and imagery we have in the books, in the Hannibal Lecter books. So we knew that we had to have fantastic imagery that you wouldn’t see on another crime-procedural show. Being competitive and wanting to be completely different from what you see on other shows, which is usually, on a crime procedural you see a body in a room splayed out and blood, but you rarely get to see people covered with mushrooms or impaled on severed stag heads or blood eagled and the totem pole. We would sit in the room and say, “What is the image? What is the death tableau? What are we going to see that’s going to be so striking and cinematic and beautiful at the same time, but will actually be a horrible crime scene?” So every crime scene that we have has to have this element of beauty and art to it.
Bryan Fuller, showrunner for NBC's Hannibal (previously), discusses each episode of the first season with the AV Club. Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. Part 4.

OH THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS

And essentially lull the audience into a false sense of security, so the first time we see him commit an act of violence—which is in the third episode when he slams Alana Bloom’s head up against the wall—it’s a shocking reminder to the audience: “Oh yeah, this is Hannibal Lecter [Laughs.] and not Frasier Crane.”

I'm glad they chose not to include the smoker's lungs scene as that would probably have strongly affected my enjoyment of the rest of the series. No true gourmet, much less a fastidious medical doctor gourmet, would eat the lungs of a cigarette smoker.

Tell you what. This is a thread where the showrunner tells you that his intent was to lull the audience into a false sense of security about Hannibal until midway through the third episode. So watch the first three episodes, and if you think he succeeded, then keep watching.

Personally, I think the closest he came to "lulling" the audience was making us think, "Good Lord, are we going to have to wait 'til the season finale to see Hannibal do anything?" Also, separately, I'm tempted to post a five-word comment over in the plot holes thread: "Will Graham in NBC's Hannibal.

I realy like the show, but he is ridiculous.

He is even more ridiculous than he was in Manhunter, and he was pretty ridiculous in that movie. Always standing in the middle of a crime scene shouting to himself.

The scene in Manhunter where he is visiting Lechter and they do these camera tricks to confuse the viewer about who is actually locked up was particularly obnoxious becaus it was so transparent.

So, I really love how this show looks, and I like Mads Mikkelsen's performance a lot, but is it just me, or does the scripting make no sense?

(SPOILERS)

In episode 3 there are a couple of crime scenes where people just seem to waltz in with no one stopping them or watching the police line or anything, just to be able to confront the main characters in various ways. Also, in the same episode, Lecter ludicrously manages to convince a young girl to cover up a murder in about two seconds of talking.

In the episode with the mushroom stuff, there's a bunch of horrible corpses in the woods, everyone's wondering what's up, standing around the crime scene, when, suddenly, ONE OF THEM TURNS OUT TO BE ALIVE! Shocking, in a Seven "sloth" like way! What happens to this guy who was alive? Oh, well, we're told a bit later in a throwaway bit of dialogue that he died in the ambulance on his way to the hospital. So that's that, then.

It's all very plot convenient and useful for leading up to to gruesome tableaux, but it's really sloppy writing. I wanted to like this show, I really did, and I could watch hours of the two main characters just sitting in a room talking, and it certainly looks great, but the flaws in the rest just make it really hard to watch.

So, I really love how this show looks, and I like Mads Mikkelsen's performance a lot, but is it just me, or does the scripting make no sense?

I only watched a few episodes before I was too consumed with anxiety over how NO ONE WAS HELPING WILL GRAHAM and OH GOD EVERYTHING IS PEOPLE, ALL THE FOOD IS PEOPLE to continue watching, but this was actually something that really worked for me, and which I assumed was a deliberate stylistic/tonal choice. Hannibal runs on a sort of surreal, dream/nightmare logic where settings change with little explanation, people move in and out of the plot at random, and everything hinges on gruesome, beautiful images and the waves of emotion associated with them. Hannibal is really really good at evoking that dream feeling, where once you've finished watching an episode, you don't necessarily remember anything about the plot or the case, but you're left with strong images and emotions.

Obviously, this works for some viewers, and doesn't for others, but I think it was the right choice for the show, since it builds tension beautifully. It's only sloppy writing if you're focused on the cases and procedural aspect, but that's not the point of the show. The point of the show is in the character interactions and the characters' journeys. Fuller himself talks about it in the interview:

In the path we had gone down initially, we laid out a version of the show for the network, and the network said that it wanted it to be much more case oriented and procedural. So we laid out that version of the show, and it was very, very expensive. And nobody wanted to increase the budget, so it was really a matter of going back to… fortunately the budget was our friend in that way, because I did want to tell a psychological horror story, and I didn’t want to spend a lot of time at crime scenes when I could be finding out what characters are going through.

The best scenes are Mikkelsen in session with Gillian Anderson, because after seven episodes a talented actor shows up and you think, "Oh that's what Mikkelsen has been trying to do!" Ever watch The Departed and wonder why Leonardo DiCaprio's agent didn't warn him how silly his Boston accent would sound opposite Matt Damon's? Same thing here.

Fortunately, Mikkelsen's and Dancy's poor performances are outdone by the cognitive dissonance you feel at seeing one of the Kids in the Hall walking around grim crime scenes. The big reveal I'm awaiting isn't Hannibal's showdown, but Scott Thompson finally cracking into Buddy Cole.

Caveat: I only watch this show because I have a major thing for bespectacled, scruffy, sporadically brilliant men who display signs of severe mental illness.

The thing that always makes me laugh riotously is that everyone on the show is totally nonchalant about eating, like, TONS of offal at all of Hannibal's dinner parties. "Dr. Lecter, thank you for inviting us to your beautiful party! What did you make?" "Oh, nothing special -- just a veal heart roulade, thymus gland pate, tongue-lung sausage, and some blood sauce. Bon appetit!"

Regarding lungs of cigarette smoker: cigarette smoke is chock-full of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. And, you know how when you sear meats to get all that delicious, caramelized browning? Those delicious brown bits contain lots of -- that's right, you guessed it! -- polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. So it is entirely possible that the lungs of a smoker, smoked for years with smoke containing a known deliciousness-enhancing compound might actually be really tasty.

Just remember, kids: if it tastes great, there's a good chance it's carcinogenic! (If consumed in sufficient quantities, of course.) The more you know!

I love this show, but there are two things that made me insane when I watched it:

1) Caroline Dhavernas has 500 exactly identical dresses in different color/patterns. And they're all from 1978. (Yes, Mikkelsen's suits are also sort of like that, but that's what Hannibal would do.)

2) Someone who cares about his dogs does not repeatedly leave his dogs at home alone for 87 consecutive hours with someone coming by only to let them out maybe once a day. Also, anyone who leaves a pack of 5 dogs (even apparently sedentary ones like Will's) alone together unsupervised is a grossly irresponsible idiot, and that's extra true when it's a mix of large and small dogs.

I'm not sure of the likelihood of this, because aren't the glycosylated proteins responsible for the bulk of the flavor in the case of browned meat? I don't think you'd be seeing much of that in a cigarette smoker's lungs.

Hey, as far as actual cigarette smoke actually making human lungs taste great -- who knows! But in browned meat, there are literally hundreds of compounds that contribute to the flavor, and it appears that the volatile aromatics are among the most important contributors for perceived flavor, even though they may be measurable in only parts per billion. See, for example this paper.

Given the, ah, porkier qualities that human flesh is...um...said to have, I might consider a big Midi red. This Cabernet-Syrah is especially nice, and quite reasonable.

That, of course, presumes you are roasting the, ah, cut in question, or using it in a richer stew. Should one prefer to braise a...fattier portion, or prepare...charcuterie, so to speak, one might instead select a nice Alsatian Gewürztraminer. This 2009 Lucien Albrecht is very drinkable, and again, a good value for the money. It would work very well with a nice choucroute garnie.

Mikkelsen talks a little bit about Hannibal in this article about his latest film:

Denmark Has a Riveting New Drama Starring Mads Mikkelsen: ‘The Hunt’ marks a return to form for celebrated filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg (‘Festen’), and features a dazzling turn by Mads Mikkelsen as a man wrongfully accused of child molestation. Marlow Stern talks to the director and star.
“They both have empathy,” he says. “Hannibal is using his empathy deliberately, and Lucas is dependent on others’ empathy. But Hannibal is Satan, and in many ways, Lucas is an angel.”
And speaking of killers and empathy:

Psychopathic criminals have empathy switch: Psychopaths do not lack empathy, rather they can switch it on at will, according to new research.
