Just like the 2 previous season of the cancelled show Hannibal, there are several episodes that required some alterations for US TV (which are also the versions sold to other countries). While there was a bare-bones UK release containing the TV Version several months ago, the US Blu-ray contains 7 episodes marked as "Producer's Cut". And contrary to the UK release, the US Blu-ray contains a lot of bonus features.
Episode 8 ("The Great Red Dragon...") is similar to the previous episode 7. A nude male butt was the offending object in the US TV Version. In the first episode with Francis "Red Dragon" Dolarhyde by Neil Marshall, the mentioned Red Dragon presents himself butt naked from behind - just like the character did in the latest motion picture. This shot has been blurred for TV.
When Francis kneels down naked, his butt has been altered for TV.
