For those of you who didn't get a chance to watch NBC's new serial killer thriller Hannibal, the network has released it online for all to see! The episode is called "Aperitif," and it's a great start to what looks to be a very promising series.
In this new drama from Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Heroes), based on the characters from Thomas Harris' classic novels, we see where this incredible story began. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham's unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone - even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he's pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. 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. If Will only knew...
The show also stars Laurence Fishburne, Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, and Lara Jean Chorostecki. Let us know what you thought of the first episode, and if this is a series you'll find yourself getting hooked on.
