If you're not watching Hannibal, you're really missing out on a great show. It's not completely canon from what I understand, but the show gives a very interesting take on the origins of Hannibal Lecter and crime procedural dramas on the whole. Check it out. Hopefully it'll start getting some love before it's cancelled after one season. I mean, it has an 8.4 star rating on IMDB, and that's really saying something. If you have Hulu Plus, the back episodes are streamable, but online only.
