Release: Jan 22, 2016 - Author: Muck47 - Translator: Mr Miau - external link: IMDB - more from this series
Compared are the censored TV Version (UK Blu-ray, identical to the US premier on NBC at 06/11/2015) and the uncensored Producer's Cut (US Blu-ray by Lionsgate).

- 2 alterations
- No difference in running time


Just like the two previous season of the cancelled show Hannibal, there are several episodes that required some alterations for US TV (which are also the versions sold to other countries). While there was a bare-bones UK release containing the TV Version several months ago, the US Blu-ray contains 7 episodes marked as "Producer's Cut". And contrary to the UK release, the US Blu-ray contains a lot of bonus features.
Episode 6 ("Dolce") is the first one featuring an alteration which concerns actual people. The rather artistically playful sex scene with Alana and Margot was toned down a bit: The average US viewer was obviously deemed too sensitive for a hint of breasts and the sexual performance in profile. For this, a blur effect was used, then the image was darkened as well.
It is rather interesting that the Primavera painting, which had been censored in episode 2, can now be seen clearly – even in a close-up. Maybe someone realized that this was rather ridiculous.
At 19:40, even the TV Version shows the Primavera painting unblurred – in contrast to episode 2.




25:22-25:24

When Margot‘s and Alana’s bodies touch, their roundings were made unrecognizable.

In two consecutive shots, everything interesting was heavily darkened.
