Well, yes, everyone involved with "Hannibal" is barking mad, and
that's why it works. The show is crazy in the same meticulous, elegant,
sly way Dr. Lecter approaches his crimes. Every tiny detail of shot
composition, dialogue, direction, and even color palette is part of the
plan. It's one of the most re-watchable shows in a long time; you
notice something new on every repeat viewing.
"Hannibal" succeeds on every level, first and foremost with the
recasting of the iconic madman. No one can ever detract from the
brilliance of what Anthony Hopkins achieved, with just a paltry handful
of scenes - just over 15 minutes of screen time! - in "Silence of the
Lambs." But Sir Anthony is a gracious actor, and would be the first to
say that others deserve a crack at the character. Mads Mikkelson is an
inspired choice to play this younger free-range version of the ghost
that will one day haunt asylum cells. Everything about him telegraphs
both hypnotic elegance and absolute alien horror, right down to his accent, which Mikkelson is perfectly capable of toning down when he wants to.
This is a monster hiding in plain sight, loving the fact that nobody
knows quite what to make of him. He's an explorer on safari among a
human race that insists on clinging to sentimental notions of moral
conduct that fascinate him. It's like he's checking his work on the
equation he followed to become a cannibal murderer, just to make sure he
didn't miss any human variables, both amused and confused that equally
intelligent people might run the same moral numbers but arrive at
different outcomes. Both the actor and character know exactly what
they're doing, with every word spoken, every gesture made. It's the
best use of the character by far since "Silence of the Lambs," and it
validates the ordinarily dreary prequel / reboot mechanic - which here
becomes an opportunity for new insight and creativity, rather than just a
lazy excuse to cash in by acting out a backstory we already know. (Or
do we? By the end of the first season, it's fair to wonder if the show
might cruise through the events of "Red Dragon" and "Silence of the
Lambs" and retell those stories in an entirely different way.)
Any fears that "Hannibal" might have been toned down for television
were surely gone by the end of the first episode, to be replaced by a
long series of brilliantly twisted, insanely disturbing "I can't believe
they showed that on TV!" scenes. Everyone who follows the show can
cite a few moments that followed them around and lived in their heads
for days afterward, from the monster under the bed to the human totem
pole. Adding to the lunacy is the audience's knowledge that our
dedicated team of FBI investigators is touring these deranged murder
sites in the company of the worst monster of all, who they have
unknowingly retained as a consultant. A few of the terrifying serial
killers profiled on the show learn what Hannibal really is, to their
cost. Lesser demons should not come into the Devil's library and
challenge him to battle.
I hope "Hannibal" gets renewed long enough to learn where the
creators are going with the overarching narrative. Will it will stop
with the events that set the stage for the first book the character
appeared in, or will it plow ahead, rewriting the sacred texts? This
creative team has earned the right to try what would once have been
dismissed as literary sacrilege.

Bryan Fuller’s consistently disturbing and eerily beautiful
“Hannibal” returns for a second season on NBC on Friday, February 28th.
Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen will be back as Special Agent Will Graham
and Dr. Hannibal Lecter in a story set before the events of “Red Dragon”
and “Silence of the Lambs,” when the pair worked together, with Will
previously unaware of the psychiatrist’s cannibalistic tendencies. As
the new trailer, below, reveals, season two will find Will behind bars,
suspected of multiple murders and trying to convince Special
Agent-in-Charge Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Dr. Alana Bloom
(Caroline Dhavernas) of Hannibal’s true nature before it’s too late. The
trailer’s set to a mournful cover of “Stand By Me.”

Love the tie in the first still, so I'm glad you grabbed a still of it. It was one of the first things I noticed in the trailer.
As for Mads sniffing the body...who else could do it so chillingly and convincingly? I don't know how they convinced Mads to take this role, but I'm supremely happy that he did!
