Tucked away on NBC’s Friday night line-up, Hannibal is a delicious treat of storytelling and cinematography for both seasoned fans of Silence of the Lambs and new diners at the Hannibal Lecter table.
With two seasons complete and a third in the works, now is the time to sink your teeth into what has so many critics raving. Mads Mikkelsen is sublime as the titular Dr. Lecter opposite an equally formidable Hugh Dancy as Will Graham.
We are treated to a feast of manipulation, cannibal puns and beautiful yet unsettling imagery. This show is a work of art that can easily be powered through in a week.
