NBC’s “Hannibal,” premiered tonight – what did you think? I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet but I’m definitely looking forward to it. In the meantime we’ve got a preview for next week’s episode 1.02, titled “Amuse-Bouche.” And if you missed the pilot episode, we’ve got it from NBC right below the jump!

In the episode, “Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), now an official special investigator with the FBI, helps Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and the BAU unit search for a murderer who buries his victims alive to grow mushrooms. In their therapy sessions, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) begins to gain Will’s trust as they bond over responsibility for Abigail (guest star Kacey Rohl), and helps Will open up about his true feelings about killing Hobbs. Meanwhile, Freddie Lounds (guest star Lara Jean Chorostecki) snoops around the BAU’s investigation.” Caroline Dhavernas and Hettienne Park also star.

The series focuses on the fledgling relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), his mentor.” Other key cast members include Lance Henriksen (Near Dark, roughly 8% of horror movies in general), Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”), Gina Torres (“Firefly”), “Wonderfalls”’ Caroline Dhavernas and Ellen Muth (Dead Like Me).

“Hannibal” airs at 10/9c on Thursdays. Head inside for the preview and pilot.

    I wasn’t expecting much from this but I decided to give it a shot, and I’d have to say it has my attention. I’ll definitely be looking forward to watching this and seeing where they take it in the series (even though, *cough* I know it follows the Red Dragon story line *cough*). Good stuff for sure.

    I have to agree with you En_Noir, I wasn’t expecting much from a series on NBC either. However, it became very interesting about midway through this episode. I find it hard to understand Mads Mikkelsen’s dialect at times, but having loved his acting in Casino Royale, I think he could grow on you as Hannibal Lecter.

    I also don’t have a problem with the Red Dragon story line. It and Manhunter were very close. However, and I know it’s only been one episode, I liked Edward Norton’s Will Graham much better than this one.

      I also prefer Norton, they overemphasized the “empathic and introverted”-angle here a bit.

    Very solid effort. I hope they will add some of the gothic elemen

    Solid effort. I hope they will add some of the gothic elements and the black humour that were evident in the movies. (Sorry for the double post)

    I still think Manhunter was the superior film, even over Silence….William Petersen was awesome and I liked the understated evilness of Brian Cox. That having been said I watched the pilot and was pretty entertained.
