the series was based on characters and elements of the novel series by Thomas Harris. for this season, the focus was on the relationship between Will, a FBI investigator and Hannibal, a psychiatrist. Will had the ability to mentally recreate the killer's crime scene, seeing everything through the killer's eyes. stressed out by his terrifying ability, Will met with Hannibal to discuss his findings and ability with. however, he has yet to find out that Hannibal will be his most difficult killer to catch.
the series was covered with plenty of dialogues and analysis of how a murder took place. despite being slow paced, these details was also the most interesting part of the series. with less side of Hannibal being exposed, the series focused more on Will's ability and his distress, especially the way it affected his life and sleeping habit. Will was a character very easy to relate to, while Hannibal felt distant yet often teased Will in ways only us viewers understood. the series itself was absolutely entertaining and thought provocative.
