Hannibal - Season 1

9. Hannibal (NBC)
Metascore: 69
This freshman NBC drama was a surprise at every turn. Barely promoted as a late-season throwaway, Bryan Fuller’s reimagining of Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs author Thomas Harris’ work was equally horrifying and hauntingly beautiful. Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen were superbly cast as the gifted-but-fragile FBI consultant Will Graham and budding serial killer psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, respectively, and their twisted dance around each other was fascinating to watch. As Dr. Lecter manipulated Will into a state of madness, the show also did something rare in this franchise: It showed its villain’s own troubled vulnerability. And only a show this visually stunning (those color palettes!) could make human organs being served at a dinner party look so delicious. We can’t wait for another serving.
