Just think about it: Dark psychological drama! Grotesque but well-planned imagery! Hugh Dancy being entirely too pretty when he's tortured! Not to mention Mads' accent. It is going to be a party! (And I think I have used up my quota of exclamation points for this post!)
Someone Who Once Met the SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Hannibal contains high doses of angst, homoerotic subtext, and really bad cannibalism puns. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how you react to Mads Mikkelson's threatening and somewhat attractive screen presence. If overwhelmed by Hugh Dancy's pretty angst-ing, please contact a doctor and watch Evening. Do not watch Hannibal if you are allergic to dark story-telling, elegant wardrobes, classical music, or rather graphic scenes of murder/violence. This show is recommended for use by persons over the age of eighteen. ^_~
SELF INDULGENT PLUG: I just unlocked my one and only (so far ^^;) Hannibal fic on AO3. I figure I'm on the bus to hell with some pretty amazing people, so why not go for broke?

Stay turned. That party? It's a tea party in hell. So bring your doll or stuffed animal, and we'll have a ball!
