TV show description:      
Set in Baltimore, this thriller series is based on the series of novels by Thomas Harris and brings psychiatrist-turned-serial-killer, Hannibal Lecter, to television for the first time.

Special Agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is a gifted FBI criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the ability to empathize with anyone — even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick.

When the mind of the twisted killer that he’s pursuing is too complicated for Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Doctor Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch.

Others on Graham’s side are Special Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), Graham’s boss and the head of Behavioral Sciences at the FBI; Doctor Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas), a psychology professor and consultant profiler for the FBI; crime scene investigator Brian Zeller (Aaron Abrams); Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park), a crime scene investigator who specializes in fiber analysis; and Jimmy Price (Scott Thompson), a crime scene investigator who specializes in latent fingerprints;

Other characters include Fredricka “Freddie” Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki), a tabloid blogger; Jack Crawford’s wife, Bella (Gina Torres); Mrs. Komeda (Ellen Greene), a Boston novelist and friend of Doctor Lecter’s; Doctor Frederick Chilton (Raúl Esparza), the administrator of Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane; and Lecter’s psychotherapist, Doctor Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson).

    Are they crazy at NBC ! Why do these networks always cancel good shows that the public enjoys watching, and replace them with garbage? This is why myself and others have stopped watching network T,V. and found other venues of entertainment, such as our computers, i pads, tablets etc.

  2. Horst says

    Should definitely be renewed. Keep up the good work, Bryan.
    Why don’t we go for crowdfunding. Nevertheless I will keep on playing the lottery. If I win I am gonna get in touch with you how to proceed.

    An Hannibal addict.

    Once again the great minds at NBC make the wrong decision. Who’re the geniuses at NBC who decided hey lets get rid of Hannibal and keep mysteries of laura. because I don’t think that the masses are subjected to enough crappy shows lets deprive them of one that’s truly original, beautiful and just awesomely written, and force them to indulge in more mental feces, such as Chicago PD (predictable)Fire (lame), Americas got talent(stupid) and Parenthood that went for 5 SEASONS!!! which consisted of, you got cancer? I have cancer. we all have cancer!!!! he cheated?? I cheated!!! its not your baby.. its my baby? who’s baby is it? the baby has cancer???!!! (WHAT THE HELL?).
    You know what?, Never mind. Cancel it. Do all of us a favor. Let Netflix get their hands on it so it evolves into something greater than you could have ever managed it to. NETFLIX DO YOUR MAGIC!!!

    I’ve been moved by Hannibal to get off the couch and to my desk chair to write a number of reviews praising the show.

    My general point in those comments is Hannibal is extraordinary: in writing, acting, direction, artistic design, photography, and music.

    Hannibal stands up as present enjoyment and will stand up in the future appreciation as a work of value and artistic worth.

    If the best we will sink to is a program about multiple generations living near each other without blood shed or incest, if the rest we see is will merely attention junkies willing to sew up their **** toward an unknowable end or to garner viewer points or to kick off a fad of closing holes rather than adding to those there at birth–all is not well.

    Don’t drop Hannibal.

    I would urge your network to reconsider dropping this program.
