1. Aaron Paul Is Amazing

As if we didn't already love the 36-year-old star from his role as Jesse Pinkman on AMC's Breaking Bad, his turn as Eddie Lane in Hulu's drama will ensure his place in your heart.

Lane is a new convert to Meyerism whose is suffering a crisis of faith. The role calls of Paul's talent for delivering the kinds of passionate, vulnerable performances he gave during the best episodes of Breaking Bad.

2. Hugh Dancy (Also Amazing)

If you were among the diehard Hannibal fans who were devastated by the NBC show’s untimely cancellation, star Hugh Dancy is bringing the same intensity he brought to the character of Will Grahame to his charismatic cult leader Cal Roberts.

3. It's Super Intense

Before the show premiered, Hulu released the first three minutes of the pilot and it blew our minds. The show unfolds in the midst of a devastating accident with bodies strewn about the streets of an obliterated small town -- and things only get more intense for the duration of the series.
