User Reviews

 
Highly derivative but not unenjoyable
27 September 2019 | by toadybleghSee all my reviews

As somebody else said here, Thomas Harris should consider suing. There's no doubt that this show is trying to piggy-back on the success of Hannibal and that Tom Payne's troubled Malcolm Bright is a slim shadow of Hugh Dancy's edgier and more interesting Will Graham. Nevertheless, the production is slick, the writing is solid if patchy in places and the story moves along at a relatively good clip. It's not going to change your life but it's not a terrible way to spend an hour.
