One of my absolute favorite things to do after a long day during the week is curl up in my bed and watch some tv. I had a friend suggest Hannibal and after watching the first episode I was addicted. The television show follows forensic psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter and his relationship with FBI investigator Will Graham, who has an uncanny ability to empathize with, and catch, serial killers. The show is based on the novel Red Dragon, a precursor to The Silence of the Lambs, and it features vivid characters, intense murder scenes and extreme plot twists.
The show had me obsessed from the first episode. I finished the first two seasons, 13 episodes each, in what felt like a week. I couldn’t stop watching. From the very beginning of the series you’re taken into every dark and twisted crevice of Will Graham’s mind. Lecter becomes his psychiatrist and the series unfolds from there. The show is gorgeous to watch, and even the stylization of the episodes evolves as the plot does. If you love Horror Movies, SVU and psychological thrillers, you will be as addicted to this show as I was. The series isn’t on Netflix but you can find the first two seasons HERE. PS- Season 3 starts in 2015.
