Explores the early relationship between the renowned psychiatrist and his patient, a young FBI criminal profiler, who is haunted by his ability to empathize with serial killers.
In the first episode, Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) says "Don't psychoanalyze me, you wouldn't like me when I'm psychoanalyzed.", a reference to the comic book character, The Incredible Hulk, and his famous "Don't make me angry..." line. The Hulk was portrayed in The Incredible Hulk (2008) by Edward Norton, the same actor who played Will Graham in Red Dragon (2002).
I don't find you that interesting.
Dr. Hannibal Lecter: You will.
Will Graham is put in mental prison in because of accusations of him murdering various girls. But he says that he is autistic which first of all doesn't make sense since his gift is to be able to replace in other peoples minds and think the way they do since autists generally have huge trouble with that. But a psychopath is able to act charming and social while Will has trouble looking into people's eyes and is far from social. But a psychopath did the murders which does not fit him.
US TV network versions aired censored versions of some episodes (removing, for example, rear nudity, paintings showing nude figures and some scenes of violence) with a TV-14 rating. These cut versions were released on Blu-ray in the UK, many of which received the more appropriate 18 rating from the BBFC. However, the American Blu-ray editions of the affected episodes are unrated and billed as Producer's Cuts, which restore the previously censored footage.
