Dr. Hannibal Lecter:
Before we begin, I must warn you... nothing here is vegetarian.
Despite being head of the behavioral sciences unit within the FBI, Jack Crawford displays gaps in expertise that should be a given. For instance, when Will Graham fails the clock test, he asks whether this is something that Will could fake.
US TV network versions aired censored versions of some episodes (removing, for example, rear nudity, paintings showing nude figures and some scenes of violence) with a TV-14 rating. These cut versions were released on Blu-ray in the UK, many of which received the more appropriate 18 rating from the BBFC. However, the American Blu-ray editions of the affected episodes are unrated and billed as Producer's Cuts, which restore the previously censored footage.
