    Will is a little too Sherlock-from-Elementary for me (which can't be a coincident with this being across from Elementary). Getting past that, straight-up chills when they first show Lecter. Holy moly, that was a stunning introduction. He is at once sinister and delicate, well-dressed and shabby. Then they introduce the CG. That deer was animated worse than the dinosaurs on Terra Nova. Can't expect too much better on a television budget, but man was that bad CG. And finally, what a scene to end the episode on. If NBC can keep this up, they might just take back the timeslot. That was a phenomenal pilot. I think it just bumped Elementary to my watch-online list.
