Hannibal: The Complete Season One review

Thomas Harris' iconic serial killer slices his way to success on the small screen

Set prior to Thomas Harris' novel Red Dragon, this exceedingly gruesome and equally stylish police procedural follows the early relationship between 'troubled' FBI special investigator Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and consulting psychiatrist-cum-cannibal Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). This hi-def set's AVC 1.78:1 1080p encodes excel at capturing the show's eye-catching visuals and the DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio is superbly nuanced. Extras, however, are virtually nonexistent, with only a couple of brief TV promo featurettes included on the final disc.
