The below commentator is an "epic fail." That phrase needs to go away and die a slow death. Season 3 of "Hannibal" begins (Please don't read if you haven't watched season 2.) with Hannibal and his former shrink/current lover (Gillian Anderson) hiding out in Italy. Of course, he starts killing again. The season is split, with the first half focusing on the Italy story with Hannibal and the second telling the "Red Dragon" story. Yes, there have been two films of Thomas Harris's source novel, but the longer format means more nuance, development, and attention to detail. Richard Armitage (Best known as Thorin from "The Hobbit.") plays the serial killer and finds a new angle. And, of course, Mads Mikkelsen returns as Hannibal and is truly excellent. He doesn't try to compete with Anthony Hopkin's iconic portrayal, but plays him as a more laconic, elegant, and conflicted character. Laurence Fishburne and Hugh Dancy are also very good. I don't know if this is the best season, but it is maybe the darkest, bloodiest, and most beautifully shot. As of now, this is the last season, which is maybe too bad, but I also think they took the show and characters as far as it could go.

Ugh. Epic writing fail this season. Overlong 'film school' dream sequences that make no sense. Where is film editor? There must be at least some narrative, some meaningful dialog, between all the long, boring color-coordinated slo-mo visuals - something to advance the plot. And why won't the insipid Will Graham die already? Hannibal is the only character this season who gets any subject-verb-object lines, but there are too few of them to fill in the yawning abyss btwn murders. A waste of actors and tape. Producers should have sent the script to rewrite. A disaster.

The first half of season 3 started off in a dream state which was fascinating, artistically gorgeous and enchanting; but also a bit annoying for me. It was hard to discern where the characters were coming from-except Hannibal's. But by the 2nd half, it comes back to "real time' and revisits the familiar Red Dragon story and speeds right along-almost too quickly! The second half is absolutely worth watching, if you find yourself impatient with the first 7 or 8 episodes.
