Some of these also may already be on my Sci-Fi list but oh well.
Reviewing The Cannibal
As many others have probably already watched the existing film franchise "Silence of the Lambs" "Red Dragon" etc...then you are already expecting a slightly creepy, seriously smart, psychoanalysing cannibal that kills...with a flourish. This TV series did not disappoint, not only do we see a more refined version of Hannibal The Cannibal but we also get to witness his skills as a Psychologist and then a twist...a teacher with a mentally unstable mind and of course this interests the beloved Lecter.
The first episode I watched almost felt like my mind had been thrown from a fast spinning roundabout with scenes such as Will imagining the crime scene of a double murder. I could go on and on about this serious despite only having watched the first season I would say that the films previously come no where close to the beauty of this TV show.
Anyone who is a serious foodie will enjoy the scenes where Hannibal cooks up lavish meals for himself and others who will unknowingly eat meat that is from one of the chef's victims. Of course we get to witness the meal and the witty banter that is thrown between the guests and host with a few cheeky puns thrown in by said host.
And speaking of the stomach you'd better have a strong one to watch this as there are scenes where victims from other kills are shown and are quite graphic although amazingly detailed and imaginative.
The only reason I did not give this series a 10/10 instead of a 9/10 is generally due to my dislike of Abigail Hobbs a young girl saved by Will and Hannibal from her father who almost killed her. She becomes quite a problem in the first series and almost constantly acts like...well a child in my point of view and yes she is young but perhaps this is just a person pet hate of mine for the show otherwise top marks.
