We were all thinking it. Who in their right mind would want to do a TV series with Hannibal Lecter? Bad idea...move on. Oh and it's not going to have Clarice Starling because it's going to be a prequel to Silence of Lambs. Double nope. No Clarice, why even bother.
And then Bryan Fuller happened.
Followed quickly by director David Slade.
Then the show had the audacity to cast Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Laurence Fishburne and Gillian Anderson.
Fine, have it your way. I'll watch the damn show.
That quickly turned into OMG this show! This glorious, beautiful, unsettling, hypnotic and gothic show. Everything was perfect!
3 seasons and 39 episodes of Hannibal Lecter longing for a friend and not understanding how to engage with that companionship once he had it. 3 seasons and 39 episodes of Will Graham trying to balance his innate decency while trying to fight his inner demons. 3 seasons and 39 episodes of a dark and gorey romantic comedy between Hannibal Lecter and the behavioral specialist hunting him.
Come back to me show! I need to know where these two men end up.This entry was originally posted at https://abby82.dreamwidth.org/71019.html, where there are comments. You may comment there using OpenID.
