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).

    This is the best show I have ever watched!!!!! So intelligent, moody, classy,scary and great acted.

    I grew up close to where Ed Gein was skinning women to make leather chairs. I find this show repulsive. I also think that it is a very negative influence on vulnerable individuals. My only option is to avoid the sponsor’s products.

  3. Suzie says

    LOVE Hannibal. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE renew. It’s the one show I look forward to after a long workweek.

  4. Virginia says

    I love Hannibal. I know it probably doesn’t attract a lot of people, but I think that’s cause they won’t give it a chance. I really hope it doesn’t get canceled.

    Ok, It’s obviously out there. Normal people won’t, well it will be tooo much 4 them. It’s deep & u have 2 watch carefully, maybe watch it twice like the last one. If they cancel it least give it a good, well thought out ending & not leave it hanging, cause we know there is much more 2 the story. Hannibal lives.

  7. LSass says

    Very interesting show Perfect casting and involved storyline. At least one more season to tie everything up.

  8. Bev says

    This show must go on…it’s extraordinary! Love (fear) Mads, Love Laurence Fishburne and Hugh Dancy.

  9. Jennifer Perrier says

    Love it! Should be a long running series! Just don’t understand why the killed Chilton? They could’ve went crazy w that story line. He was Lector’s tormentor for yrs. Freddy as a chick was a nice twist. And great casting for jack, Will & Hannibal is superb!!!

    It would be a crime not to renew this series unless NBC is committed to the dumbing down of America. I see Crossing Lines is not on the schedule. Well done NBC.

  11. says

    Excellent show which grabs you from the start. Evil is pure and intense pouring out of Hannibal. I hope it continues for many more scary seasons!
