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 »

I proudly vote 10000000/10 for this Master Piece
25 February 2015 | by masters-mind-teamSee all my reviews

First of all, this has the BEST script EVER! a script worth to be learned by heart, the delivery, the word choice are so aesthetic.

Then, the story is compelling, the BRUTALITY is tempting, the Music is fascinating, the elegance is inspiring, the cooking is appetizing ...

Hannibal characterizes the natural perfection, his facial expression is so cold and lifeless yet shines with an unearthly abnormal confidence. He's a multiskilled person who has an encyclopedic knowledge, He honors his carcasses by displaying them in an artful piece and also by not wasting their organs.

This series will make you have several EYEGASMS and EARGASMS !

This is not for the simple minded half wits of course !!!
