There was a very close second to my Favorite Character to Actor Depiction post the other day, and that is this guy:
I had seen Silence of the Lambs a long time ago, but after my husband and I watched the first episode of NBC’s Hannibal last year, I immediately grabbed his copies of Thomas Harris’s trilogy of the shelf and dove in. And I was not disappointed. These books are brilliant. I’m not sure any other book compares to the mastering of pure mania and psychological thrill. The way he just twists every character is just perfection. I have always been fascinated by the madness of the brain, so Hannibal and his “friends” are a wonderful group of people for me to read about. I love that Hannibal isn’t even the villain, he’s just kind of the puppet master in all of this. Dohlerhyde, Mason, Bill. Those guys are just incredibly written.
And of course, I told you I was always intrigued by the bad guys…this series is no exception.
I’m so glad they are continuing with the show. They just renewed it for a third season, and I cannot wait to see where Bryan Fuller takes it.
