So has anyone been watching this? Over the past couple of weeks I went through season 1 and am now catching up on Season 2.
I won't say that it's great television (I hold Deadwood as the high standard) as it often gets a bit unrealistic in the plot lines. But, I've been very surprised at how good it is overall. The tone is consistently surprisingly dark and the visuals creatively surreal.
I read that the plan is to have Seasons 1-3 be new material and then for 4-6 they are going to tackle Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal. I am definitely curious to see how that plays out.
But, what I am most curious about is how fans of the books like the show. I've never really been a fan of the movies and really only liked Manhunter. But this show has really managed to impress me.
