You Should Be Watching – Hannibal

Hannibal title card

Hannibal is the answer to the question, “what would a miniseries based on the movie Seven look like?” The murders are gruesome, and the killers are more than just a handful of psychotics. In this show, every action has a price, and no one leaves unscathed. The series follows a  structure similar to shows like Lucifer and Law and Order SVU. Will Graham, the FBI’s star profiler, must work with a task force to solve violent murders.  But what is the cost of working in such extreme conditions?

In this series, Hannibal Lecter is one part James Bond, one part Patrick Bateman. Played by Mads Mikkelsen, Hannibal is both a calculated killer and a well-known psychiatrist. He is hired by Jack Crawford, leader of the FBI task force, to assist Will Graham in solving crimes and profiling criminals. But what are Hannibal’s true intentions? Each murder weighs on Will, slowly breaking his psyche. Will Hannibal help Will, or groom him to be his successor? Or will agent Graham discover that his “friend” is also a serial killer? It’s a thriller wrapped in a who done it, that is, consuming my time on Netflix.
