5.0 out of 5 stars I Savor This Show, June 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hannibal Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video)
Absolutely brilliantly done with a cast of characters whose acting talents are far superior to nearly every other on network television. You cannot surpass the level of depth of character development, the writing, where as they discuss real theories of psychology; build up, and character development between Will Graham and Dr. Lecter is unlike anything else on television and cannot be done with a movie.

Eventually we will view shows like this one not to be just a show, but rather a series of movies, each telling a story, where at one point a 2 hour movie will not be enough anymore to satisfy our palate for something as savory as this series.

This will become a classic.

I so disagree with you. The Lecter we see in the TV series is not the same man that has been imprisoned and whose madness is rising to a visual level. The TV Lecter is so completely frightening BECAUSE he seems bland. Keep watching.

Bryan Fuller plans to do six or seven seasons. The reason Lecter isn't that creepy at the moment is because he's putting on an act for all the other characters. If Hannibal gets to season four, Fuller said he would try to get the licensing for the Clarice Starling character, as that would be the time in Fuller's version of the story where Buffalo Bill's murders are being investigated. So, if we get four seasons, we'll get Lecter in jail -- who will certainly be creepier and more outright insane as he does not need to act normal for the other characters around him. They will know his true character by then.

HeidyHo, I think you are confused. This series is a prequel to the films. You are assuming that Hannibal Lecter is supposed to be always portrayed as he is in the films which are set in a timeline in which he is already exposed as a psycho, someone who no longer needs to be putting on an act of normality, which quite frankly, must be exhausting to someone so thoroughly sick. If he seemed "insane" he would be suspected and investigated, obviously, so he pretends to be normal so that he can continue killing (and eating) people because he likes to do that. I'm constantly disturbed by Mads M's portrayal of Lecter because he is demonstrating how good he is at appearing "normal" to society, a wolf in sheep's clothing, and that is quite creepy in itself. If you require seeing a mad, violent Lecter I suggest you watch the last scene of Season 1 Episode 10, in which he is anything but boring, civil or bland.
