Digesting Hannibal – Season 1 (complete)

As a psychiatrist and a writer, I thought it might be fun to put together a commentary on this great show.  I know very little about their development process, including if they have any professional consultants.

So this blog series is for play.  Consider it a companion piece reflecting my professional thoughts with each of my professional hats (mostly my psychiatrist hat).  It’s intended to be read while watching the show.

It’s a dense show, so sometimes the analysis can be quite extensive.  Sometimes it’s just me waxing as well.

Warning: There will be spoilers, so it’s useful to watch while reading.  It’s available on amazon prime, iTunes.

And yes, it’s intended to be a gross title, fitting with some of the devices of the show.
