    Both shows on second season, acclaimed ones, both were ignored almost if not completely by the emmys last year, and both have compelling leads in which could perfectly score an emmy nod and also both shows in one season or another had at least one episode deserving of a directing or writing nomination.

    If you had to choose only one to break in? Which one would it be?

    Personal preference is ‘Hannibal’ but realistically speaking in terms of the Emmys. It’s ‘The Americans’.  Oh how I would love to be proven wrong.

    Do you even have to ask? The Americans. No contest.

    This was a tough one, but I went with the more ambitious one because its peak was higher.

    Yes, The Americans, of course, but Hannibal sure does deserve major Emmy lovin’. Shame on you if you haven’t caught up with this brilliant, daring show. Join the Cannibal Club! …. and pass the barbecue sauce, pls …

    I had big issues with both of each show’s two seasons.

    Season one Hannibal>Season one The Americans
    Season two The Americans>Season two Hannibal

    I’ve preferred The Americans by a narrow margin both seasons, especially narrow this second season, but I’ve really loved both shows.

    I don’t watch Hannibal as I have sworn off Network dramas for a few years now.  And everytime I give a Pilot a shot it’s so embarrassingly bad or trite that it makes watching another Network show that much more difficult for me.  Parenthood and Fringe were the last two I really enjoyed and I stopped watching Parenthood halfway through its last season.

    So, I voted The Americans based on this criteria alone.

    Yeah but Hannibal really isn’t a network show.. It belongs anywhere but network tv really, and I’m pretty stunned it’s on to a third season. You should give it a shot, it’s pretty great.

    You should try it out at least. It’s probably the most daring network TV show on (or that’s on a break) right now. I’m one of the few that prefers the second season more than the first, and it’s defintiely better than most cable shows, that’s for sure.
