      Fox does it again with 'The Following'

      'The Following' created by Kevin Williamson (Scream) maintains Fox TV's run in creating creative dramatic series to help the network more than compete with their older rivals. The relationship between former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon) and womanizing serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) is somewhat similar to that of Dr. Hannibal Lecter and FBI agent Will Graham. What makes this series very interesting is the fact that Joe Carroll managed to inspire a cult following of homicidal sociopaths varying age, ethnic and social demographics while in prison that aided in his escape and evasion of local and federal law enforcement. Equally as intriguing is the fact that Joe Carroll's 'Following' hails from all walks of society professionally, even law enforcement. Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy is his usually entertaining self and the consummate actor bent on tracking Carroll down and navigating his way through the FBI as well as different members of Joe Carroll's cult. Among the things that I'd appreciated most about the series is not only the acting of all the main and supporting cast but the fact that not one episode is predictable, particularly the season ending one. 'The Following' should have you on edge looking forward to each episode and consequently 'The Following' season or box set. Much like all of the 'Scream' films which Kevin Williamson was involved with the some extend, the writing in 'The Following' is exceptional and again, unpredictable. Enjoy!

      On the edge thrills

      "The Following" is probably the best of recent dark natured TV serials. "Bates Motel" and "Hannibal" have their charms but "The Following" has Kevin Williamson of "Scream" fame running the ship and Kevin Bacon as ex-FBI agent Ryan Hardy trying to recapture a serial killer who now has a cult behind him doing his dirty work. Don't get to attached to many characters for they come and go in very nasty ways. There is an air of paranoia running throughout where you can't even trust a nanny to be a good guy. James Purefoy deserves attention as Joe Carroll, Hardy's foil. He's so twisted. Charming one minute and a calculating psycho the next. "The Following" is a terrific binge watch. Season 2 is in broadcast now and the quality has not lessened. If you like twisty, scary and occasionally horrifying "The Following" is the one to watch.

      True fear from a television series

      I like BATES MOTEL - it's an inventive reimagining of the classic Psycho, and it's sinister. I like HANNIBAL, too, another reimagining of a classic story, and truly elegant horror. I like SLEEPY HOLLOW - what a fun romp through the supernatural. But I love THE FOLLOWING. In fact, I'd admit to being nearly obsessed with it in an "I can't wait for the next episode" way when watching a season before it's released to video. Not since episodes of the old Hitchcock series, The Twilight Zone, and The Outer Limits has television honestly scared me. But THE FOLLOWING does - every episode. Each one is filled with surprises and shocks, and there's no sense of security at all left to a viewer. It's akin to what Hitchcock did by killing off Janet Leigh so early in Psycho, leaving viewers with no safety net about the characters living or dying from that moment on. Same here. Kevin Williamson of Scream fame, who created the show, learned his lessons well. You'll never watch in comfort. But the almost non-stop action, suspense, and shock will keep you wildly entertained.

      I am not a Kevin Bacon fan, but my sister-in-law kept telling me how good of a show this was. She isn't one for suspense, cult killing type of shows or movies so when she told me that my husband and I should watch it I bought it on DVD. I loved the show after the first episode. This is a role Kevin Bacon was made to play. The plot, the characters, everything fits together very well. I don't think it is a scary kind show, I think it is very suspenseful. It keeps you guessing the entire time. And it is one of those shows that does make some of us sit back and think, "There really are people like this in our world." That's the only "scary" part.

      "The Following" is one to follow

      I love Kevin Bacon. He is so talented and his role in the first season of "The Following" is well suited to him. Bacon plays an ex-FBI agent chasing a serial killer (what other kind is there?) who has just escaped from prison. Bacon has to deal with the loyal followers of this charismatic killer, and there are a lot of tense action scenes throughout. This FOX drama is getting ready to premiere its third season. This is a very compelling drama and I really love it.

      Really a great series so far,its disturbing because of the sheer pleasure that the Carrol character gets from killing,& his Cult minions, they are relentless,& disturbing,but the whole thing really draws you in, due to the character base & very good acting,I think this is some of Kevin Bacons best work,the only problem is the one major flaw,that F.B.I. always go into situations in groups, & in this there are alot of times that they dont,leaving them in very vulnerable positions,but if you can get past that,Its great stuff!

      The new series will keep you on your toes. There are plot twists within plots twists and you'll enjoy every minute. The FBI are always right on the heals of the famous serial killer, Joe and his followers. People, every day ordinary people in fact that you wouldn't think would be capable of following him just might be apart of his psychopathic rampage. It's a must see and ultimately you're a follower to by just watching.

      The Following: Bacon is back!!!

      This is the return of Kevin Bacon, when actors head to the small screen, people think it's a demotion. This show is intense, addictive, and kinda gross. Bacon is an F.B.I. agent who is on the hunt for a cult leader, he always seems to be one step behind this mastermind. It's on Fox tv, the bluray quality is good, comes with a dvd and ultra violet, I'm loving season 2. Get Season 1 of The Following.
