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).
Dr. Hannibal Lecter:
Before we begin, I must warn you... nothing here is vegetarian.
Throughout the series, Will doesn't exhibit proper lab procedure. In an autopsy suite, if you're going to be near the bodies, gown, apron, gloves booties and goggles/face screen are required as personal protection. Will wears none of these.
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.
