Mads acting is outstanding as Hannibal Lecter in this series! He plays the character so well. Creepy yet strangely compelling! I love the way he invites people to dinner parties and is feeding them his victims. Sitting there with an almost smug look on his face! While in the morgue his victims are stacking up with parts missing and they are all puzzling over the crimes. Hugh Dancy is very good as well and i love how he deconstructs the murder scenes to get into the 'killers' mindset!

My only complaint is the extras do not contain the gag reel which apparently is on the American version! Does not seem very fair! There are some on youtube which are hilarious!

So, my sister began watching this and told me it was something that I would be immensely interested in. I had no idea why, and to be honest, I knew very little of the genre built up around Hannibal the Cannibal. I of course knew bits here and there but I was too busy with other shows. My sister informed me that it was due to my psychological studies that I would involve myself with it.
Begrudgingly, hating that my sister is usually right in these instances, I tuned up and from the get go I was hooked. So much so, that I have invested in the set of Hannibal books, watched all the movies and other things identified with the character.
This series is nothing short of stunning. Both visually and in the dialogue and in the story-telling. It spurs the imagination into the darkest surpluses of the mind and with it brings fascinating points of interest. I had never heard of some of the things that occur in this show and was spurred to find out more.
Mads Mikkelson is for me definitely the Hannibal I most appreciate. He has taken a very different approach to Hopkins and Cox and not only has created a truly terrifying version but mixed it with so much humanity that I can believe this to be a real person. The manipulation starts right off the bat as Lecter takes Will Graham Alana Bloom (changed into a female by Bryan Fuller and was originally Alan Bloom) Jack Crawford and Freddy Lounds (also changed into a woman) These changes open up so many brilliant new ways to gain perspective on the original tales. In no way do the changes seem forced and actually suit the characters a lot better than whereas they were men.
Subtle hints and speech is taken directly from the source material, and is given so beautifully that it seems so natural.
Hugh Dancy is superb.

If you're a viewer of sophisticated taste, and you do not fear meandering in darkness, this is the show for you. I have a profound admiration for the production design behind this series, and the cleverness of plot and dialogue that concur to one of the most twistedly captivating atmospheres I've ever experienced in watching a show. The level of detail is stunning, and it dramatically increases the rewatchability factor. You'll find yourself watching each episode several time to savour (pun intended) Hannibal's table centerpiece, his drop-dead gorgeous attires, Hugh Dancy's outstanding performance, the subtlety of the actors and actresses, the nerve-racking humourous moments, and, if you're into cooking, you could literally spend hours to discover every detail of Doctor Lecter's fabulous kitchen. I've recently watched the last episode and saw the trailer for season two a bit later and it got me extremely excited. Bryan Fuller made his intentions clear: he wants to develop a seven seasons arc where the first three will see Will catch Hannibal, season 4 will be a reenvisioning of Red Dragon, season 5 of The Silence of the Lambs, season 6 of Hannibal, and the last season covering new ground. If you'll end up being as attracted to this show as I am, you'll be dreaming of the possibilty this series has to become - with Fuller's genius and his amazing team holding the reins throught the entire arc - an absolute masterpiece.

I decided to watch this online since I don't have Sky so I couldn't watch it on telly when it was being broadcast in the UK. I gave it a shot because this show is all over the blogging site Tumblr and it looked really interesting, but I'll admit it took me a few episodes to get properly addicted. However, once I got to episode 3, I was ploughing through the episodes, have pre-ordered this DVD set, and now I am eagerly awaiting season 2.

The series starts off immediately showing the viewer Will Graham's unique talent of thinking how serial killers do, and you go inside his head to "see" him kill two people and explain how he did it along the way. Even this first scene sets the stage for the beautiful cinematography throughout the entire series. It also introduces you to the unflinching violence in Hannibal and I must warn you if you're squeamish, you will not like some of the scenes in this show. I'd say I was pretty good with blood and gore (two of my favourites shows are The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones) but there's an episode in this season I can barely watch, it's so tense and gross! Not to put you off or anything.

The show has a fantastic cast (Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne and Gillian Anderson are my standouts), beautiful scenery and a very intelligent plotline, where everything fits into place. By the end, you'll be shouting at the screen (probably at Hannibal and the way he's so cleverly manipulating poor Will). Also, I may have an odd sense of humour but there is some cracking one-liner's in this show, primarily from Hannibal ("You put the life in your belly and you live!", "I have no taste for animal cruelty, which is why I employ an ethical butcher.") A scene that made me chuckle is where Alana Bloom (Will's doctor) is trying to guess the tastes in Hannibal's beer. It's people, Alana. The beer is made of people.
