Watching other shows through Supernatural-colored glasses: Hannibal

A couple of weeks ago, Hannibal featured a killer who seemed, at the beginning, to be non-human. It turned out to be [Spoiler (click to open)]a human using a mechanized animal-style jaw to kill people in an animalistic way.

But watching the non-human-style killings made me think how fantastic Supernatural could be if it were done by the people who are doing Hannibal. On the network that's showing Hannibal. In Hannibal's time slot. With Hannibal's budget. The gorgeous, cinematic style. The pacing. The writing. The gore, guys. You can't even imagine the gore they'd be allowed to show - no stupid spray of arterial blood every time someone gets killed. The dream sequences. Supernatural would be so beautiful, it makes me want to cry.

And they keep teasing me by featuring noteworthy SPN guest stars:



Kacey Rohl, who played Marin in The Born Again Identity...



Plays hapless Abigail Hobbs...



Demore Barnes, who played archangel Raphael...



Plays creepy Tobias Budge...



and Katharine Isabelle, who played Ava...



plays creepy and probably hapless Margo Verger.





Ironically, a lot of Hannibal fans complain that it would be so much better on cable. And yeah, it would. But a word to the Fannibals... just count your blessings that your favorite show isn't on the CW!

Anyone else a fan?
