The Following > The Following Review: A House Divided > Comments Page 2
This show is like watching Zombieland. A laugh out loud, so predictable. The viewer is smarter than all those federal agents. This show is like a car wreck, you don't want to see it but you can't take your eyes off it. It will not see a second season
Does anyone else think that this show would be better with a supernatural element to it? Something like The Indigo Prophecy, where unknown dark forces are inducing people to commit murders as part of a larger plan. It's ok as it is, but I'm having a hard time believing that these people could be so easily influenced by some literary professor. Just sayin...
Story is ridiculous. In real life this guy Carroll would be in complete lockdown by now. An expert network of serial killers doing a bang up job out there, and much smarter than the police and F.B.I.is laughable. Even when the killings aren't sexual in nature the plot just HAS to make them all women. Typical crap.
Roderick could be the police guy watching Claire, they one that rung Agent Parker when the lawyer left, the one who pulled Claire aside before Charlie let off a smoke explosion. Just an idea. I want to know who Roderick is and if Joey will ever get back to his Mother before the end of the Season.
I love this show..
I love this show but this episode was too much Ryan was sooooo close, smh. As soon as Ryan said the nutjobs were not going to leave the house alive I knew those buggers would wriggle out of there somehow. The blonde cop was so obvious, her eagerness to help made me cringe I was just waiting for her to switch.
I'm also starting to care more about poor Ryan's heart than little Joey (who for some reason still trusts the brutal Emma, I thought that kid was supposed to be smart?) - Ryan would have got a shot at Emma if Joey had kept his distance instead of following her to the car.
I do hope Parker is legit, after seeing her back story I think she would be too obvious as a plant. I don't have much to say about Claire, except she's so clueless, almost as good at trusting the clearly insane people as little Joey.
Now lets wait for the next chapter of Joe's prison fairytales, that should start like this: 'Their once was a nutjob named Roderick'
the series paid for some decent writers for a good outline but the guys who filled in the details are terrible hacks. ruined it. derp derp derp. ridiculous.
This is probably the worst episode. I actually enjoyed the standoff but we are not back to square 1. I know Williamson did Scream 1-4 but this is TV and we cannot keep getting back to square 1. He need to wrap up 1 part and move on to the next chapter. The show is quite well pace and tense but in the end it might not keep viewers hook every week if its the same old thing.
...my LEAST favorite episode.....too many holes in the plot and story line...but i'll keep watching..
I love the show. Kevin Bacon is great and I can't wait for Monday nights to see what happens next. The show has quite a few twists, and the writers are a talented group to come up with great storylines week after week. This is one of the best shows on tv and I hope it lasts for several seasons.
come on seriously ryan hardy was so close, so close to getting joey! FU JOE! i thought that guy who has joey's mom is roderick anyhow i really wanted paul DEAD but i don't think he will make it in the next episode. Emma is a BITCH haha she left jacob and paul for dead and she's just using them. LOVE how ryan was getting inside they're minds messing with them to try and turn against each other!
Hey, pickers of nits, it is entertainment and better than most shows. It's way more exciting than my life to be sure.
I get engrossed in the story I guess because I jumped when the local cop shot the good FBI agent, forgetting about the Kevlar. I WISH Hardy would have popped Emma whose picture is in the dictionary next to the word sociopath. She is morally bankrupt with no soul whatsoever and no redeeming qualities.
And if you all really want to pick a nit or two, how long has it been since Hardy has been to the shooting range? Talking about shooting out tires and such....he had had time to train his gun on the phony cop and might have been a little lucky. How long since his last drink? How steady are his hands?
Just a thought.
Still, it's a don't-miss show.
I think we have already met "Roderick" . We just don't know it yet.
I really do like the show but please that woman emma needs to go, she's getting on my nerves. And Joey needs to be reunited with his mother once and for all.
ok i like the show but REALLY ? All law enforcement agencies are there andveryone basically gets away ... REALLY ?? Sorry but that was just over the top unbelievable , almost as much as Claire seriously going with some crazy guy her sociopath hubby sent.
This is the first episode to rub me the wrong way.
I, for one, enjoy the show for what it is... Something different. Yes there is some predictability but it is TV. I think the writers are wringing a lot of suspense out of 43 minutes each week, and I will keep coming back to finish up the story. I only hope they come up with a creepy and well-connected and well thought out story as this one with Poe, Joe, and Co. I am loving Kevin Bacon on my TV each week!
I too liked Ryan messing with the trio.
I think Emma has a larger role in all of this that we have yet to see.
I thought from the moment we saw Parker that she was a little fishy, I still do. I also thought Weston was a part of the cult but now I do not think he is.
I knew the female cop was part of it. Roderick sure has lots of power if he was able to accomplish what he did in the short amount of time.
Honestly, I gave this show a big chance and kept coming back in hopes it would get better. After last night's episode, the only word that keeps popping into my head is LAME! There was no surprise that local cop was a "follower". Pretty obvious from last week. FBI HRT guys just let a bunch of unknowns into their perimeter. I guess all the snipers are followers too. That would also explain how Emma makes it out the back with Joey without getting drilled between the eyes. Oh, and two fully tac'ed-out HRT guys allow a potential Tango to not only approach them from behind, but then allow him to continue walking toward them after verbal instructions are given where he then drops them both with a suppressed pistol. Wow. I sit in disbelief that anyone read this script and said, "Yeah, that sounds good, roll with it."
And of course everyone gets away passing straight through the police road blocks that were reportedly in place. Oh and Joe's lawyer who has been blatantly abetting criminal act
If Hardy shot out the tires and the gang was rounded up, what would happen next week? IT'S JUST TV PEOPLE!!! The writers are not stupid... they are just keeping us going for 13 weeks. Enjoy the story and see how this plays out. Just watching Kevin Bacon's amazing acting is enough. "I'm still going to snap his neck" was hilarious. And all of you out there saying that you have had enough and won't watch again, let me guess, it is still programmed to record on your DVR and you will still be glued to your set next week. If you didn't then what would you have to complain about come Tuesday???
Suppose its not a bad series-Liked the first 3Eps than the later ones-soon be having Hannibal on our tv soon thats about a seriel killer also-think its doing well in the us because all can view it but in the uk its been put on skys private channel so all carnt view it
3) Then the most obvious and STUPID plot line of all is that these people are surrounded by lots of law enforcement people. SUPPOSEDLY, EVERY ROAD HAS A ROAD BLOCK... How does Emma Escape that? Why isn't Ryan on the phone (which we saw him use just few moments ago) telling every at that moment she's in a _____ car heading _____ ?
Shows with "The Fugitive" or "Gilligan's Island" thematic (we almost caught him / got off the island) thematic writing bore me senseless because of the liberties with common sense that are necessary to make that happen.
2) Near the end of the show, when Ryan is giving chase and there is the car with the phony police officer, Emma and the kid Ryan comes in and shoots the police officer but PREDICTABLY for the sake of Drama, Emma gets away and he doesn't even shoot a tire.
What would have happened in real life with trained 'experts' is that Ryan would have been a little stealthier. Allowing him to get a wee bit closer to the car. Then, if the phony cop pulled a gun he would have popped her and immediately popped Emma. Pop-Pop ... Pop-Pop, Aiming high, shooting at anyone higher than 4 feet.
The fact that he couldn't shoot out a tire or disable the car is looney.
What I had a problem with was and these are just two of many issues w/this episode are:
1) Are you telling me that Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett (Hawaii 5.0) is the only guy to have a Law Enforcement Group with access to Infrared technology, night vision goggles etc.? The Local Police, Swat, FBI and whatever other Alphabet Soup group is there can't find anything better than a flashlight? They're hunting really dangerous people in the woods at night and they've got bupkis!
(Also not in this episode) The fact that in the previous episode when Marshall Turner let Claire out of his actual 'sight', even to go to the bathroom, was a huge mistake.
(didn't fit on one post)
After being recaptured he would have been (seriously) severely beaten by the corrections officers. The official story would have been a) he attacked another guard or b) he fell or c) he was injured operating some machine (less likely because of his circumstances) and would then be locked in his cell with virtually nothing and w/virtually no outside contact to finish serving his sentence or fast tracked to the execution table.
Most federal and state prisons do not give inmates access to the Internet at least unsupervised or unmonitored access. So the plausibility of him 'building' a network is kind of remote.
Wow, I was really starting to like this show until the most recent episode.
I really hate it when writers put stupid, predictable scenarios into a script for dramatic purposes or even worse write / create shows that are supposed to be realistic and make them fantasies.
The premise of the show has some merit but the execution of it is HORRIBLE. Anyone that knows about real Prisons would tell you that this is La La land.
Our main character is an escapee! He was serving a Life sentence for multiple murders. I'm not sure if he was on death row or not. I can't remember that detail.
