Yawn,,,the critics raved over this I guess their standards have been lowered by the years of crap networks have churned out that any mediocre drek like this seems like Shakespeare to them.
Most of the TV critics I trust were not fans. Alan Sepinwall, The AV Club, Time, Tim Goodman- they all did not like it. It seems like this show is really splitting viewers and critics down the middle.

Carroll was a bit too "Hannibal Lector" last night.

I am worried that the new women in charge of the FBI cult team will be/has been seduced by Carroll.

Even if he didn't fall in , all that salt water should have ruined his leather jacket.

What sort of mook would do that?!

I didn't care much for the pilot at all, but I have really enjoyed the four episodes after that. I thought it was going to be a murder of the week show, but I've been impressed. I'm really liking the storyline with the threesome (pun intended?) that kidnapped the boy.

^ Really? I have given up on the show mainly because of the threesome, it's just too stupid.

I'm still not sure how I feel about this show. In some moments it really holds my attention and I like it. In others, I start to feel bored and think the plots are kind of cheesy. I'll probably continue watching for now, but if the season doesn't go somewhere interesting soon I might give up.

Re: The Following Kevin Bacon Kevin Williamson S1 Discussion SPOILERS

This isn't exactly my favorite show, but I think it's ok. (Though I would rather watch "Criminal Minds" instead).

At this point, the only reason I'm watching "The Following" is that it's on just right before "Hawaii Five-0" on Mondays. I'm usually not doing much else on a Monday evening.

This arrangement is sorta similar to when "Simon & Simon" was on immediately after "Magnum PI" back in the mid 1980's. If "Simon & Simon" was on a different evening and/or time, I probably wouldn't have watched "Simon & Simon" at all in the first place.


If either "The Following" or "Hawaii Five-0" were on different evenings and/or times, then I probably wouldn't be watching "The Following" at all.

This show reminds me of 24 with serial killers instead of terrorists, but I don't mean that as a compliment. I guess I'm entertained, but the good guys are really stupid and the bad guys are able to do way too much.

Re: The Following Kevin Bacon Kevin Williamson S1 Discussion SPOILERS

^My thoughts exactly. The sheer number, power and reach of the cult borders on the absurd. The FBI and local police cannot be outwitted/overpowered every singe time; it's starting to just get boring. We know that whatever the good guys do, the baddies will have some ridiculous way to outsmart them.

The good guys need to actually score some points here, and pretty soon, or I'm going to bail. Hubby is still digging it, but me? It's trying my patience.

I feel the same way. It's the exact opposite of the problem that most shows or movies like this have, where the good guys always win and outsmart the bad guys, even in ridiculous ways. In this case the pendulum has swung way too far in the other direction. It's really getting annoying.
