Hmm. Very tough. The atmosphere on Hannibal is some of the best in TV history. The acting on Bates Motel is top notch. Both of them have many redeeming qualities. I might give a slight nod to Bates Motel though.

Bates Motel by a million miles.

The first 2 seasons of Hannibal are pretty good but the third is a complete mess. Bates Motel however manages to be brilliant throughout with some very strong highs - it also ends perfectly.

lol.

In what way is Bates Motel Psycho for dummies? It expands upon the film and in the process gives us brilliant characterisation and development. I’ll also add that Psycho the film, whilst great isn’t exactly overly complex or hard to get so I don’t see how they could even dumb it down in the first place. Psycho does work greatly on it’s own but this series expansion is brilliant for those wanting more - and I say that as somebody who was very skeptical before I began watching.

Hannibal however was decent to start with, ridiculous at times (looking at you Will Graham and how you solve crimes) but there’s definitely a nice visual style going on and it’s certainly very edgy...however by season 3 things just got ridiculous - at times I thought it was border-line parodying itself...and that ending ..christ talk about cringe-worthy. I also fail to see what’s ground-breaking about it or what it’s influenced.

I now put Bates ahead of Hannibal... Hannibal was great however the final season was really odd and weird. Bates had a clear direction throughout.
Thatís the sorta feeling I got too. Bates Motel has a vision and as a whole piece felt very accomplished, Hannibal felt very very messy in that final season, it felt as thought the writers had no idea what they were doing.

Tough call, but I'll go with Hannibal just because Madds kills it as Dr. Lecter.

Love both shows, but have to go with Hannibal. It did not drag out at any point for me and was better paced.
