    Well it got one of the most coveted timeslots in TV, right after The Voice on Mondays. See what some of the reviews say but looks interesting and has a premise that can last 5 seasons.

    This intrigues me a lot. The trailer looks great (even though it spoils the whole damn pilot! :argh:). I LOVE Spader in the lead. He seems to be having a lot of fun in the role. It has a great serialized premise that lends itself perfectly to the weekly procedural. I hope it sticks around, but with NBC you never know.

    It looks great, intriguing premise, quality cast, high production values. I just hope Spader doesn't turn out to be her Dad, that was my initial thought when I read the Log line but he's playing it kinda creepy and the way he is so cold and casual about what happens to her husband makes me hope the reason he selects her is more inventive when the time comes to reveal it.

    That is actually where my mind went as well and I too hope it is not something so cliche.

    So Silence of the Lambs meets 24? A curious oddity, but I don't have a lick of faith

    So... NBC is unsure about 'Hannibal,' so they went after a series that is basically 'Silence of the Lambs'?

    Spader is a G.

    And yes, catching terrorists may well sell better than catching serial killers.

    Finally saw a trailer for this and it looks great. Spader is high on my list of favorite guys and he looks sufficiently creepy in this. :D

    I am watching this show, which means that (since I don't have DVR) I'll have to catch Castle online.

    I'm I the only one who thinks the lead actress favors a young Reiko Aylesworth from 24? :)

    Boy this was good.

    I'm gonna have to rewatch it though because I kept switching back and forth between this and Hostages, which was also fantastic.

    I pictured Ultron when I heard Spader speak with intercom voice.

    Looks pretty good, hopefully it just won't devolve into "criminal of the week" story lines.

    They messed up Hannibal by not having Clarice from the start.

    Bryan Fuller, the producer, has balls though. He says he plans to introduce Clarice in SEASON 5, and have that season cover Silence of the Lambs and Season 6 to cover Hannibal, and then Season 7 as a conclusion for Lecter.

    I closed my eyes and said to myself "Yes..... this is Ultron. This is definitely Ultron."

    Well, yeah, of course it will. That's the whole premiss.

    He's got a list of dudes he wants the FBI to take down for him. Sure they will probably have lots of season long plot points, like whats her faces [blackout]Hubby and his secret box of s**t under the rug.[/blackout]

    Nothing wrong with Formulaic, as long as you keep it interesting.

    And oh yeah, this was good. Gonna check it out next week.

    I'm not blind to the premise, but the ground work doesn't mean they can't end up branching out more.
