Comments

Graceland is EXCELLENT. There's at least a little bit of punching in EVERY episode.


Hannibal is a great show, but be warned - it is incredibly gory and disturbing. Even my sister and I, hardened horror fans, found ourselves having to pause and step away for a few moments. If you're okay with that though, I'd definitely recommend it. People who have read the Hannibal books will be delighted to recognise some of the homages Bryan Fuller slipped in. And of course, Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen do a (scarily) fantastic job as Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter. I'd even argue that Mikkelsen's performance rivals Anthony Hopkins'!


Seriously, get Hannibal! It is really dark and gory (I have to cover my eyes at least once an episode) but wow is it great!
