I guess I sort of agree with everything, but keep in mind the job of a pilot is to introduce a concept and a bunch of characters and keep people coming back.
I love procedurals and never saw any of the Hannibal movies, so the comparisons don't mean anything to me.
The writing was solid considering what they had to accomplish and I am hoping that things that seem obvious today will turn out to be a bit more complicated as time moves on.
I am not as down on the lead actress as many here, she was quite believable in the scene where she stabbed Spader in the neck, so her character is not intended to be the "cute little girl". Yes, they certainly could dirty her up at the end of a day, but this problem is hardly unique to this show.
I'm in for the entire season unless they completely run off the rails and I don't see signs that that could be happening
