Can't wait for the final season of Dexter! Do you have any Deb-and-Dexter scoop? — Claire
NATALIE:
As if Dexter hasn't made Deb's life complicated enough, he'll do something in the season premiere that he believes to be noble, but will lead Deb to repeat a past mistake — and that's very bad. As a result, don't be surprised when these close siblings become adversaries.

Ask Matt: Would Revenge Be Better Shorter? Plus: Grey's, Glee, Hannibal, Good Wife

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I just read that Mike Kelley, the creator of Revenge, is leaving the show after this season. I will admit that this season isn't as good as the first, but it's OK. There are reports that Mike Kelley wanted shorter seasons, like on cable, with 13 episodes instead of the regular 22 moving forward. Since that wasn't going to happen, he left. What do you think? Do you think the show would work better with a shorter episode order? Also, if Kelley knew the show wouldn't work with longer seasons, why didn't he speak up the first season? Do you think someone else stepping in will freshen the show a bit? I will admit the time I started to take a step back and realize the writers were going too far was when they revealed Victoria had yet another child. Really?! Did you think the writers went overboard with that storyline in particular too? I also don't agree with the assertion that Scandal has replaced Revenge. read more

Ratings: Hannibal Opens OK; The Office, Community Hit Lows

Hugh Dancy

Hannibal didn't take a bite out of the competition Thursday, but it did give NBC some life.

Bryan Fuller's prequel adaptation of Thomas Harris' novels premiered to 4.3 million viewers and a 1.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Though obviously low, the numbers are NBC's best in the once-revered Thursdays-at-10 slot since ...

NBC's Hannibal: Not Just Another Serial Killer Show

Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne, Mads Mikkelsen

In a year that's already given us Fox's The Following and A&E's Bates Motel, some might argue that we don't need another serial killer TV show. And they'd probably be right.

But NBC's Hannibal isn't just another serial killer show.

Spring Preview: Gets scoop on all the must-see new shows

Taking characters from the Thomas Harris novels that inspired a film series that includes Manhunter, The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon, executive producer Bryan Fuller (Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) has created a sophisticated drama that doesn't glorify the violence of mass murder but rather examines the toll that hunting serial killers takes on the minds and souls of those who hunt. In fact, even though the show is named after Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who was immortalized as one of the greatest pop culture villains of all time thanks to Anthony Hopkins' Oscar-winning portrayal, the series — at least initially — isn't entirely focused on the cannibal in the three-piece suit... read more

The Thursday Playlist: Delectably Weird Hannibal, A New Girl First Date

Jake Johnson, Zooey Deschanel

You can't help but get a deliciously squirmy tingle when the infamous (to the viewer, anyway) Hannibal Lecter quips, "It's nice to have an old friend for dinner" while serving tongue to his guests, including an unctuous and chatty shrink whom Lecter sizes up by coolly noting, "Your tongue is very feisty."

This scenario takes place several episodes into the midseason run of NBC's feverishly twisted, fascinatingly macabre and visually remarkable procedural-with-a-twist Hannibal (Thursday, 10:01/9:01c), by which time I was completely creeped out and thoroughly hooked. In much the same way A&E's Bates Motel introduces a younger version of Norman Bates before he had his crazy mama mummified in the cellar, Bryan Fuller's Hannibal presents the mad Dr. Lecter before his secret identity as a cannibalistic serial killer is known to anyone but his victims. He is caginess personified, taking on the role of advisor and therapist to tormented FBI profiler/consultant Will Graham (from Thomas Harris' Red Dragon). Will has an ability to project "pure empathy" and see grisly crimes from the killer's POV, which Lecter describes quite accurately as "an uncomfortable gift."
