    WTF. All original ideas are officially used up. There are upcoming "Hannibal" AND "Bates Motel" series starting, featuring young versions of both characters. :suicide:

    Big fan of Thomas Harris and the books and the movies too! The TV show idea, however, sounds like utter and complete shit.

    Network TV, for the most part, is horrible. The shows that tend to get the most buzz nowadays are cable channels. As more older Americans who never had cable die and people who have had cable for most of their lives become the prime audience this trend will continue and the rating will skew higher for cable shows. Hell, NBC finished 8th on Thursday night at 9. That's the spot they owned for 20 years.
