Hannibal has been praised by the critics. I’m not sure how it’s doing with ratings, but I just don’t get the fascination.

For one thing, Mads Mikkelsen might be a great actor in his own right, but a convincing Dr. Lecter he’s not, and his accent is too distracting.

The premise isn’t very intriguing, either – it feels like it takes away from the criminal mastermind that is Hannibal Lecter, who is more like a caricature of the Lecter we’re used to, honestly.
