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).

Great casting, directing, cinematography. I love this show and would hate to see it canceled. Love Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen in their roles!

Hannibal should never have been renewed for a second season.

Cult was a creepier show, and was more horrifying.

I was a huge fan of Dexter, and yeah, Hannibal and Dexter have some similar aspects. But, they are different as well, the vibe of the show is different. With that being said, that can be said about every show. ” still standing was basically the same as King of queens minus the kids” and so on. Hannibal is a great show, well written, well portrayed.

I loved this show. The Acting was excellent. The writing was excellent. NBC should definitely continue airing it. I give it 4.5 out of 5.

Hannibal is a rip-off of Dexter. There are too many similarities between the shows.

NOTHING like Dexter. The only similarities are that there is a serial killer. Dexter is a serial killer with a conscience who kills bad people, while Hannibal is a cold-blooded psychopath who kills anyone at all. And then eats parts of their bodies.

You’re over-generalizing just a bit.

This show is a rip-off of Dexter, which is much more interesting.

Dexter: Forensic police scientist Hannibal: FBI consultant, psychiatrist
Kills serial killers Just kills, no motivation

Possibly one of the best shows ever aired.
Would be a mistake to cancel.
