Hannibal Season One

13 Episodes - French Titles
Apéritif to Savoureux

**This show contains slightly disturbing
evident amounts of gore
Will Graham, a gifted criminal profiler, has the mind that any detective would want.
He sees the crime of a killer and empathizes their motives.
But it seems like Graham's job came with a lot of mental issues.
And there came the aide of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
Ah, Hannibal. It's no surprise that the TV series was wayy more enjoyable than Thomas Harris' novel, Red Dragon. I will let you in on something:

The Finale throws in a lot of the series' murder cases, so if you plan to skip a few, limit the episodes to two skips or the following:

If you want exposition, start from the beginning. 
 If you want to watch a great thrilling episode, start with Episode 3 or 5. 

The show features many strongly-characterised characters. Can't blame the show for this... after all, anybody involved with the detectives or the murderer himself ought to be intelligent or witty.

Will Graham is played handsomely by Hugh Dancy and his [cannibalistic] psychiatrist,
Dr. Hannibal Lecter, portrayed by an exotic Dutch, Mads Mikkelson .

The season seems to be told in arcs. From the Minnesota Shrike to the one-episode-long Mushroom Gardener. Yet, these cases will haunt
 Will Graham.. 

Are these murders strange or bloody? Oh, no, my dear reader. 
In case you didn't know, the mastermind was 
on the show the entire time. Every episode. 
A few hints? 

·Has surgical skills or medical knowledge
·Does something with certain extracted organs of his victims
·Caught by Graham in Savoureaux
·Not yet imprisoned...

These murders are meticulous, but the method is always evident. For example, a girl stabbed with the antlers of a stag, yet her body still lays on the

Didn't see that coming, non? 

The show seems to promote children as murderers 
(or for Abigail Hobbs, an accomplice of murder). 
And there were some episodes that didn't air on television because of the content. 
It is quite a shock (and a little funny) that an eight-year-old kid is holding a gun or pistol the size of his own hand. 
Sorry, kid. It's just so tiny! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. 

And finally, let's talk about Graham and Lecter. You will love, love, LOVE 
every single line that Hannibal speaks. 
Mikkelson, you lucky lad.
Did I mention that he cooks? 

I didn't choke, but 
I love how he doesn't flinch at the sight of tissue and blood!
Graham, this looks nothing like Chicken Soup!
Even as an omni-turned-pescotarian, I could tell.
It looks nothing like chicken!

The show will keep all your attention. 
How long will it take YOU to identify the Chesapeake Ripper? 
Which characters are admired and dreadful, in your humble opinions?
