** Ellen Muth shows up as a "Mulholland Drive type reinterpretation" of George from ''DeadLikeMe''. Her character, Georgia Madchen, last name translates roughly to "Lass", and she has Cotard's syndrome, believing she is dead but still existing in some form, like Georgia Lass in Dead Like Me.
*** George and Reggie's last name on ''DeadLikeMe'' was Lass. A "Miriam Lass" shows up as one of Jack's proteges.

** In "Digestivo" there's even Lecter drawing a parallel between stable elements and Chiyoh, with him telling her she'd fall "between iron and silver" the same way he does to Clarice in the books.



* [[LaserGuidedKarma Lecter-Guided Karma]]: Season 2 introduces [[spoiler:Mason Verger, who has spent a lifetime abusing his sister Margot, who depends on him for her money, up to and including forcing a hysterectomy on her and ensuring that the doctors leave a big scar to brand her]]. Hannibal arranges for him to suffer a comparable level of harm, leaving him [[spoiler:facially disfigured, paralyzed below the neck, and dependent on Margot.]]

* {{Leitmotif}}: The Goldberg Variations Aria by [[Music/JohannSebastianBach Bach]], recognizable as the classical music playing after Lecter attacks his guards in ''Film/SilenceOfTheLambs.'' It appears normally as one of Lecter's themes as well as in a slowed, softer variation for Will Graham (such as when he first rescues and bathes Winston in the pilot). This then later returns for the penultimate episode of season two (albeit slowed significantly and then composed over), and for season three it expands on that by having the low tempo version reappear as a softer choir version for [[spoiler:a dual motif for whenever Lecter and Graham cross paths]].

''Hannibal'' is a peculiar genre mash-up of ForensicDrama and GothicHorror created by Creator/BryanFuller, based on the character of Franchise/HannibalLecter. The series follows [[TheProfiler FBI profiler]] Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) as he investigates difficult serial killer cases for Special Agent Jack Crawford (Creator/LaurenceFishburne). Requiring further assistance, psychiatrist Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) recommends they enlist the help of the world-renowned psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter (Creator/MadsMikkelsen), to both consult on cases and keep Graham from becoming too caught up in the horrors of his job.

** The same goes for Abigail and Garret Jacob Hobbs, who are occasionally mentioned in the books and the former of whom Graham recalls briefly meeting with again after the incident. Come the TV show, Hobbs' impact on Graham is thoroughly explored in the first season, and Abigail is a direct part of Graham's life (to the point he even finds himself caring greatly about her).

** As his therapist, Hannibal asks Will quite a few, notably whether Graham feels so bad because killing Garret Jacob Hobbs felt so good, and how his ability to empathize with killers has been affected now that he's felt the thrill of killing firsthand.

* ContinuityNod:
** The episode "Entrée" has a few notible examples, as it transfers some events, descriptions and dialogue from ''Literature/RedDragon'' and ''Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', such as Chilton's description of Hannibal, Clarice Starling's characterisation, and the circumstances of how Hannibal was discovered to be the Chesapeake Ripper.
** "Su-zakana" has two major instances: the bird found inside the victim is a starling, and Hannibal being seen comforting a lamb during one shot.
** In "Kō No Mono", the birds in Lecter's opening meal are ortolans, an endangered delicacy that act as a key ChekhovsGun in ''Hannibal Rising.''



** Bryan Fuller's original plan was to include book villain Mason Verger in the second season, directly adapt ''Literature/RedDragon'' in Season 4 and do ''Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' in Season 5. Instead, Fuller opted to move his adaptation of "Red Dragon" up to the second half of Season 3 -- which also includes adapted material from ''Literature/Hannibal'' and ''Literature/HannibalRising''. NBC's dropping of the series in June 2015 rendered discussion of future season plans moot.
** Further reinforced by the episode "Entrée", which transferred some events, descriptions and dialogue from ''Literature/RedDragon'' and ''Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', such as Chilton's description of Hannibal, Clarice Starling's characterisation, and the circumstances of how Hannibal was discovered to be the Chesapeake Ripper.
** {{Prequel}}: The series begins well before the events of ''Literature/RedDragon'', showing how Will and Hannibal first met and started working together.

Premiering on {{NBC}} on April 4th, 2013, the show was later renewed for a second season that began airing on February 28th, 2014. The show quickly gained popularity by drawing Fuller and Harris fans together, and for spawning an enthusiastic fanbase that has been skillfully and gleefully mirrored by [[OneOfUs the official blog]] [[http://nbchannibal.tumblr.com/ (MAJOR UNMARKED SPOILERS)]].

Unfortunately, as of June 2015 (and only a few episodes into Season 3), Hannibal was announced as [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/06/22/hannibal-cancelled-by-nbc cancelled]] [[https://tvline.com/2015/06/22/hannibal-cancelled-nbc-season-4 by NBC]] due to unsatisfactory ratings, adding it to the pile of Fuller shows cancelled just a few seasons in. Despite no word on whether or not it would be picked up for a fourth season elsewhere, comments by Fuller and Martha de Laurentiis seem optimistic, especially so due to the ongoing outcry from the fandom.

** In the same episode, when Jack finds out someone called him from his own house phone to play the recording of Miriam again, he rants about how the Chesapeake Ripper was "In my house, in my bedroom, where my wife sleeps." This is almost a word-for-word quote from ''Film/TheGodfatherPartII'', when Michael is complaining to Frank Pentangeli about the assassination attempt on him.

Set before ''Literature/RedDragon'', the novel that started [[AdaptationDisplacement the Thomas Harris books]] and led to the award winning film series, the show frequently leans on [[DramaticIrony Lecter's double life]] and his [[ManipulativeBastard "friendship"]] with Graham and co. as they solve grisly murders. Not only is the show notable for its writing, it also built on an infamous cocktail of SceneryGorn and FoodPorn -- expect [[SupremeChef beautifully constructed meals]] made with MysteryMeat, and corpses mutilated in some [[ForTheEvulz unique]] and [[PoeticSerialKiller artistic]] ways.

** Will also exibits signs of this as his [[SlowlySlippingIntoEvil character development progresses]]. While a part of him tries to retain a conventional morality, another part pulls him towards a more personal moral code. For example, it becomes more and more acceptable to him that another person suffer if he thinks they deserve it (like Mason, or [[spoiler:Bedelia and Chilton]]). At the same time, he forgave Hannibal after he killed Abigail and cut Will open, he doesn't seem to think Hannibal deserves to ''suffer'', and accepts him unconditionally even though he's a serial killer and a cannibal -- which for conventional morality wouldn't make sense. The fact that his criteria for who deserves pain are so personal is actually one of the things that make Will all the more dangerous and unpredictable.

*** In "Rôti", Gideon sits down across a table from Hannibal, demonstrating a clear contrast between the Anthony-Hopkins-like characterization adopted by Eddie Izzard as Gideon and Mads Mikkelsen's own take on Lecter. The irony is palpable; Gideon has been made to believe he was the Chesapeake Ripper, so Izzard imitates the acting style of the ''original'' Chesapeake Ripper as played by Hopkins.
** Miriam Lass, an eager-to-please and brilliant trainee under Jack, seems a clear-cut Clarice CallForward; much of the dialogue between her and Crawford echoes that between Clarice and Crawford at the start of the film... with the twist reveal that she discovered Hannibal was the Ripper in the same way Will did from the books (with the diagram of Wound Man). She just didn't make it to a phone before Lecter found her out too.

** The scene in the second episode where Graham kneels next to a semi-decomposed person right before they reveal themselves to be alive, with a gasp, is remarkably similar to a scene in the crime-thriller ''Film/{{Se7en}}''.
** "Entrée" is filled with references to ''The Silence of the Lambs''. Eddie Izzard's portrayal of Dr. Abel Gideon is almost a complete recreation of Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal, while the character of Miriam Lass seems like a clear {{Expy}} of Clarice Starling. Many of Chilton's descriptions of Gideon in the show were originally his descriptions of Hannibal. [[spoiler:When Lecter is serving Dr. Chilton and Dr. Bloom dinner, he claims the tongues came from a "chatty little lamb." ([[ImAHumanitarian They didn't]].)]] Furthermore, the scene in which Miriam makes the chance discovery that Hannibal is the Chesapeake Ripper, only to be attacked by Hannibal when he realizes the jig is up, closely mirrors what happened to Will in the opening of ''Red Dragon''.

** There are a lot of similarities between Graham and the younger Professor X in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''. Will's "pure empathy" is not unlike Charles' mind-reading power (and since Will's brain contains an abnormally high number of mirror neurons, this would make him a genetic mutant), their BlessedWithSuck "gift" can cause them a tremendous amount of agony, and they're both tormented by a love-hate, emotionally intimate, homoerotic friendship with a violent man of equal intelligence who has physically harmed them (Lecter for Graham, Magneto for Xavier). Both characters are dedicated to saving the lives of others, but occasionally their actions are morally questionable. In terms of their altruism, Will takes care of numerous stray dogs, while Professor X provides shelter and education to runaway mutants. As a bonus, Hugh Dancy looks somewhat like Creator/JamesMcAvoy (both actors are brown-and-wavy-haired, blue-eyed and possess PrettyBoy-like features), so after ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'''s debut, Dancy became a very popular fan casting choice for Brian Xavier should the ''Film/XMen'' film series ever decide to show Charles' father in a flashback.
