This review is from: Hannibal - Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
i was keen as mustard to get my eyes on this and at first i wasnt sure if it was worth the time. The pace was twisting in its slow pacing and while thats deliberate i never felt engaged to a few episodes in and then i was pressing play as soon as one episode ended. I would say between episode 1 and 2 i spent a day, between 2 and 3 i wasted 2 days . After that it was all in quick succession.
The show has some brilliantly strong characters. hannibal is as slick and controlled as one could imagine, clever, inviting, human in parts , beast in other. will grahams characvter is more complex than those he hopes to catch and i loved that. All in all you wont find better characters for many a day.
Towards the end the brilliance was screaming at me, i was punching the air, shouting at the screen, emotions flying all over the shop, brilliant.
I cant give it five because i cant deny the way i approached the first few episodes. its gory, its chilling and its cunning. get this
