Storyline

Will Graham is a special consultant with the FBI. He has a special gift whereby he can empathize with any individual and put himself in their shoes. This means he gets to help solve vicious murders, especially those involving serial killers, as he can profile the murderer - their method, motives and personality profile. For a particular case, the FBI also seek the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a highly-respected psychiatrist. Will and Hannibal hit it off, and Will becomes a patient of Hannibal. Little does he know or suspect that Hannibal might be the most wanted serial killer in the US. Written by grantss

Trivia

Lance Henriksen - lead actor in the TV Series Millennium (1996), to which "Hannibal" is a spiritual successor - guest stars in Hannibal: Trou Normand (2013) (Episode #1.9). He ends the scene double-tapping his chair, with a sound effect lifted from the Millennium opening theme. See more »

Goofs

The extensive, severe winter settings reveal the Toronto filming sites, rather than represent the Baltimore dramatic setting. Baltimore winters are mild, and snow rarely accumulates on the ground for more than a few days at a time. Yet snow covered landscapes and large accumulations of snow on the streets are common in the series, and there is snowfall to be seen through the window of Hannibal's dining room during nearly every meal.

Will Graham: I don't find you that interesting.
Dr. Hannibal Lecter: You will.

Alternate Versions

US TV network versions aired censored versions of some episodes (removing, for example, rear nudity, paintings showing nude figures and some scenes of violence) with a TV-14 rating. These cut versions were released on Blu-ray in the UK, many of which received the more appropriate 18 rating from the BBFC. However, the American Blu-ray editions of the affected episodes are unrated and billed as Producer's Cuts, which restore the previously censored footage. See more »

So aesthetically pleasing
17 June 2020 | by ichsachmalsoSee all my reviews

I've been a fan of the franchise long before the show came into being, and it did not disappoint! I love how beautiful everything is shot despite all of the horror and gore. The motives and emotions are intricate and the acting is a thing to behold. Yeah, the third season could use a bit more plot to buff out the poetry but really, I can't fault it much. This is also one of the very few shows that has had a satisfactory ending!
