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

One of the Chesapeake Ripper's victims is sliced into sections vertically, and put on display between sheets of glass. This was mostly likely inspired by British visual artist Damien Hirst, whose 1996 work, "Some Comfort Gained from the Acceptance of the Inherent Lies in Everything," did this with an actual cow.

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.

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 »

More than a TV show, a work of art.
18 November 2016 | by ring_girl_alexaSee all my reviews

This is more than a TV show, it is a work of art. The cinematography is amazing, it is filmed beautifully and every image is a well-thought-out picture. The dialogues are deep and full of subtle meaning, as the characters mostly try to understand each other's way of thinking or try to manipulate one another.

Throughout the series Hannibal and Will get to know and understand each other and as a viewer you get to experience the same thought processes, as empathy is a major theme in the show.

The images with dead people are so horrific but gorgeous at the same time that you find yourself mesmerized by the beauty of death. Also, the series finale is in my opinion one of the best ever. It is truly an amazing show.
