OK thinking about picking up on this series. Haven't watched an episode yet but I keep hearing decent things.

Loving this show and the *mushroom garden* was really disturbing.

This show doesn't deserve to be on NBC. It's just TOOOOO good. Perfect casting btw, and the acting and scripting is superb. I love that actor who plays Hannibal. Loved him in King Arthur and Casino Royale. Late spring hidden hit we have here...

oh, WG, if you start watching... don't start with the next episode. You MUST start with that amazing pilot episode.

"This woman is put here specifically to up the body count down the road."

You really don't know how Freddie Lounds died, do you?

Freddie Lounds was played by Phillip Seuymour-Hoffman on "Red Dragon" and Stephen Lang on "Manhunter". He died in both films.

Speaking of Manhunter: Ed Norton's "Will Graham" in "Red Dragon" was a wimp; William Petersen's "Will Graham" was the best, so I didn't liked to see that Hugh Dnacy looked rather wimpish on that pilot's first scene. But he has William Petersen's voice!!! That "scene from next episodes" when Hannibal sniffs him and Will groans "did you just smell me?" could easily have been said by Petersen himself.

This said: I loved the Pilot, i loved second episode, and forget Brian Cox, Anthony Hopkins, Ed Norton, Harvey Keitel or Ed Farina: these actors are redesigning the characters pretty well. In the future, people will look at Anthony Hopkins's "Hannibal Leter" like they look at Peter Cushing's "Sherlock Holmes" after Jeremy Brett.

 @rkngl : NOPE, I had no idea about Freddie, So if we are to assume that everything will happen as it did in the movies (which I doubt) she might be safe in the series after all. Though I have to guess that in order to keep things interesting, they'll have to change things up and not adhere strickly to the film/book continuity..
