Yes, I'm aware that HANNIBAL premieres later today but that doesn't mean that we can't get an early taste of the first episode now does it? Below you'll find a couple of clips that outta give you a pretty good idea of what to except going into the first episode of the series. I've been excited for HANNIBAL from the get-go simply because I think Mads Mikkelsen is brilliant and will no doubt do justice to the legendary role of Hannibal Lecter.
Here's a nice little synopsis for the first episode:
When the FBI takes on a case of disappearing college girls, Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) recruits Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), a gifted criminal profiler with a unique view into the psyche of serial killers, to consult. Jack also seeks the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), a brilliant psychiatrist, who, unbeknownst to him, is not only one of the most successful serial killers of all time, but also a cannibal. After a copycat strikes, Will and Hannibal join forces to track down the culprit. Caroline Dhavernas and Hettienne Park also star.
The episode is titled, “Apéritif” and will premiere tonight at 10:00pm on NBC.
