What’s it all about?: “Hannibal” features Mads Mikkelsen as the infamous Dr. Hannibal Lecter (yes, the same character portrayed by Anthony Hopkins in “Silence of the Lambs”), and Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, a criminal profiler who can empathize with psychopaths. The new NBC series unites the pair when Graham gets stalled trying to find a specifically demented killer, and enlists none other than Dr. Hannibal to help close that and subsequent cases.
