I was pleasantly surprised by the first season of Hannibal since they the subject matter and the level of blood and guts was not something you'd see on regular network television. I have read Thomas Harris's books and while Anthony Hopkins did an amazing job as Lecter I think Mads Mikkelsen adds a different layer to highly educated and extremely dangerous doctor. Hugh Dancy‘s work as Will Graham coupled with his chemistry with Mikkelsen make Hannibal a must see. Viewers will not only have to look forward to Dr. Lecter‘s exploits but also the introduction of Mason Verger who will be played by Boardwalk Empire‘s Michael Pitt. Hannibal returns on February 28th at 10pm on NBC but until then check out the latest trailer for Season 2.
