You know where it’s all going, of course. But it’s the how that matters
in Bryan Fuller and David Slade’s superlative TV take on cinema’s greatest psycho. It varies in narrative satisfaction, but is packed with cameos from the Thomas Harris texts and set under a shifting sky of horrific, magnetic beauty.

Released: 02 September 2013

Cannot recommend it enough. It's like Dexter, but with a PhD. ... More

Everything about this show oozes a dark majesty. It's a brutal and horrific, yet beautifully shot work of art, and its central performers are masters of their art. This is TV at its finest and season 2 can't arrive soon enough. ... More
