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).

Just a comment on the background music. I think it is just AWFUL with those drums or whatever they are. They are sometimes too loud and annoying and really don’t fit in with the series. Maybe a little more refined and sedate…that should do it. Anyone else agree with this?

This show features great writing and intense, terrific performances on all fronts. It is the one show I never miss. The Blacklist is good but this is better.

This is the best drama on all of the big three networks right now (NBC, ABC, CBS). The way this series is filmed with dark undertones, using accelerated panoramic views between scenes is as artistic as any on tv and the actors and storylines are just as good. Unfortunately low viewership may cancel the show, and if that were to happen, I would beg any of the other surging networks like FX or AMC to pick it up and treat it like they would American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, etc. The show’s night (Fri.) and time (10 PM) also do little to help it out. Please, please do not cancel the show. It is just too good.

PLEASE DON’T CANCEL HANNIBAL!
This is the most riveting show on TV since LOST!
I was stunned that there was no mention of the show or the actors in last year’s EMMY nominations!
Seriously! The best show on TV!
