Hannibal Lecter

eye contact“Hannibal” is the best TV series I’ve seen in a while.

The series has been running for three seasons, but wasn’t picked up for a fourth.

Watching the last episode, it seemed to be hurriedly wrapping up all the story lines that weren’t going to be developed. But other than the last episode, “Hannibal” delivers the goods.

The casting and psychological drama are what kept me watching.

The highly stylized murder depictions and violence were mostly needed to set the stage for the story. But they’re the parts I’d just put up with to get to the interactions of the characters.

Hannibal Lecter is played by Mads Mikkelsen. His acting and the dialog with the other characters is engrossing and will lead to binge watching to find out what will happen next.

I’m sorry the series won’t be back. If you can put up with some gruesome murder scenes, you’ll be sucked into the twisted world of Hannibal Lecter in no time.
