From that article it sounds like they should also have access to characters from the Hannibal Rising Novel too. I'll confess that was my least favorite book in the series so I can't seem to remember if there were any characters still alive by novels end.

None of this matters when your show only gets 2.5 million viewers and isn't on CW.

This show should have been on cable from the start.

Being on network is killing its ratings, and there is too much censorship for this type of show.

I completely agree. I think the show should have been on after the series finale Dexter, and take over for it. Be perfect for Showtime.

That would've been very interesting...

Could a cable channel pick it up?

Sure.

And pigs could fly if we breed them with eagles.

Even in this day and age of cable and Netflix it's incredibly rare that a show from one channel is ever picked up by another.

I think NBC likes the show, and it seems like maybe they are talking to DirectTV about doing another FNL style deal. It's the only reason I see for not just canceling the show already.

But I have heard nothing about anything of the kind. I hope it does, I want to watch it, but it was on at the same time as Scandal and that comes first to me.

My gripe is that there are no normal killers on this show. They're all a bunch of wannabe artists. How many times can we see someone's guts displayed in a different manner and how likely is it that one place could have so many of these nut jobs running around at the same time.
There are lots of "normal" killers, but they aren't investigated by Jack's Unit for Behavioral Science, or if they are, Jack doesn't need Will's help to understand their behavior.
At first Will was called in to investigate missing girls. But now we have these extravagant set pieces which seems all too frequent.

Actually enjoyed the latest episode, although sometimes the camera just lingers too long for the intended effect of the close-up or whatever.

Well, they did a straight-to-series order and already bought and paid for the entire 13-episode first season, so they probably don't want to torpedo viewership by saying, "Yep, it's canceled," which could result in what small viewership base there is abandoning the show due to knowing that there are probably threads that will never be resolved.

I mean, it's got to be a semi-expensive show (it's shot extremely well with a lot of creative lighting, so I have to imagine the episodes were shot with a somewhat extended schedule, and Fishburne / Mikkelsen especially don't come cheap), and therefore I figure NBC is trying to get the most out of its investment.
