Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hannibal - Season 1 [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
Every pun intended.. What can I say that has not been said before about this series. Not a lot I guess but it has been a long time since I have enjoyed and admired a TV series as much as this.
It is a little impeded by the need to complete a story arc in each episode, or certainly it felt that way in the early episodes. However the brilliance of the show is that it does have a X-File murder/mystery of the week coupled with a very satisfying overall series arc as well. I also prefer William Petersen's portrayal of Will Graham in Manhunter as well, Hugh Dancy can be just a bit too "twitchy" for my liking. These are just minor points there is nothing wrong with Dancy, it is just Manhunter is one of my favorite films.
Excellent acting, impeccable design, intelligent scripting and certainly the best Lecter since a certain Dr Lecktor (Brian Cox).
Fans of Manhunter and SotL should find a lot here to enjoy and the atmosphere of Gothic Gruesomeness is perfect for Thomas Harris's creation.
Excellent work all round, bring on the second series.
For anyone buying the product it is worth noting that Blu Ray picture is excellent, but as others have pointed out the special features are very limited, if this is your thing I am sure there will a second release later with better features so a rental maybe more appropriate.
