I watch bits and pieces now since each episode is not as good as the previous going all the way back to the outstanding pilot and 2nd episode. Sorry, but the writing makes the FBI look as inept as the people who work at the DMV. Case in point killing off Agent Reilly who was sent to protect someone who at the very least was a material witness who was a possible target and not providing him with any backup. Heck, they should have known from the prison videos that his killer had visited Joe Carrol in the joint. At this point you would think that the FBI's special agents and IT people would know most if not all of the followers based on such things as prison visits and tracking down who Carrol contacted when he was using the local law library computer to recruit followers.
For all of the show's fans, don't worry about us who aren't fans any longer. At first, I thought it would be a great series, especially having Kevin Bacon and Natalie Zea as main characters. But, the series writing is weak and it needs to change or the show will not see a second season. And that is a shame because it does have great potential.
I really wanted the show to be better but IMHO, it is mediocre and therefore, I no longer watch it. No worries fans, I won't be making any more comments about "The Following", especially when it is a victim of "The Cancelling".
Glad that Mike survived. I'm getting to like that kid. Joe killing Charlie was very well done and I was hoping someone could name the beautiful music being played over the scene. It sounded very familiar.
I got the idea that Joe felt that the whole thing had gotten a little too large for him, grown perhaps past his original plans. Roderick may end up being a handful and wouldn't that be delightful.
I agree with some posters - if the series gets under your skin, shut it off and pick up a book!
On some (most) sites, I see rudeness abound because their opinions are challenged. So far, that has not happened here and that makes it a good place to come to speak your mind.
Have a nice week all.
Why is everyone hatin' on the show??! I think its great writing and is totally different from anything I have seen on TV as of late. Yes, the scene where Debra was shooting at the truck was totally unrealistic. I even shouted at the TV stating shoot out the tires! Also, very unrealistic that she didnt bust out a window or anything! The rest of the epi was awesome..I knew Mike wasnt going to die (he is one of the top billers so I knew he would at least last a season!)...and am glad it was confirmed he is not a follower. I have my suspicions about Nate tho...
Roderick...what is up with him? Why was he so upset after Joe killed Charlie?? I agree w/Mrs. Alex that Charlie offered himself up. Joe even asked if he was sure before he even went through w/the killing. Anyway, awesome show! :)
Joe and Roderick are both psycho. They enjoying killing so much it almost bring them to an orgasm. That is why after killing, they feel so high then the next logical thing is to make love. Kind of like people have drugs and then sex.
The show is not the worse on TV. It does have a great cast. It is obviously inferior to Walking Dead, Dexter, Homeland and even the new "The Americans". I actually blame Kevin Williamson, the brains behind the show. He made good SCREAM movies which is more style than substance. I guess a really good TV show with a good plot that is more than 2 hours could prove difficult for him.
I think this show is one of the best out there.Yes it is very unrealistic but if you don't like it then don't watch it.I tune in for the completely unbelievable "show" that it is.Its fantastic and the acting is getting much better.An there is nothing wrong with appreciating the new attractive additions to the cast or the chemistry between actors.I find emma and joe quite good together in terms of entertainment.Its going to blow when all three guys find out they have been sharing her.An as for claire...ehh could do with or without her,same with nate.I too watch for James Purefoy although im loving the new characters such as roderick and louise.Im in til the end for sure!
The scene with Charlie dying. Made me giggle it was so ridiculous. The sweeping melodramatic music. Metaphor scmetaphor. Homoeroticism smacking everyone in the face. It was just plain looney. Subtle as a brick. I actually felt embarassed for the actors.
When horror unexpectedly morphs into farce something is seriously messed up.
I don't know what alot of you people on here are watching, but this show is great, top 5 for sure.
You can't please all the people most of the time, so if you don't like it, don't watch it, pretty simple.
Now for the show, Emma is starting to bug me, but only because she is so good at playing her role, LOL.
Nate has to be a follower for sure.
Can't stand Roderick, and having him as the sheriff is really going to get my blood boiling, LOL
The lawyer had it coming.
Can everyone just stop bitching about how horrible this show has become? If you think you can do better, why don't you give it a try? Go ahead, write a script, send it in. See what it gets you.
Last observation and comment on "The Following". Natalie Zea is the only reason to watch the show. Too bad they wrote her off "Justified", she is the only "Justifiable" reason to watch "The Following". Sorry, just couldn't help myself. It was "Justified".
