Beautifully shot, but one thing I can't completely overlook...


Is that the characters speak in prose - specifically Thomas Harris' purple prose, taken straight from the novels. It's so jarring to hear whole passages that I remember reading and loving used as dialogue! It sounds unnatural, as those bits were never intended to be used that way. Other than that, fine show.
