You may have forgotten, but last night was the premiere of the somewhat highly anticipated "Hannibal" on NBC, a network that can't seem to sell a show to save their life. But this one is/was certainly promising. The excellent Mads Mikkelsen leads the show as the titular cannibal, but in his early days as a doctor, before he became much more well known for his peculiar appetites. He's enlisted by the FBI to help Hugh Dancy capture a serial killer, but of course the twist that Hannibal Lecter is a killer himself adding a layer of intrigue to the show. Does it all work?

Well, if you missed it last night you can decide right now. NBC has dropped the pilot episode online in case your forgot to set your DVR or didn't realize the show was now on the air. We haven't had the chance to catch up with it either just yet, but the first season is planned to run a concise and compact 13 episodes and Hannibal's true nature said to be revealed by the end of season two, perhaps they got it right? Watch and let us know your thoughts below.
