Editorial Reviews

Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Kevin Bacon and UK's James Purefoy (Rome) star in this terrifying new thriller from Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries, Scream). When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon), a psychologically scarred veteran who captured Carroll nine years earlier, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on a college campus where he taught literature. Knowing Carroll better than anyone and close with Carroll's ex-wife, Claire, Hardy works closely with an FBI team, which includes no-nonsense agent Jennifer Mason and sharp upstart Mike Weston, and soon discovers that Carroll was not only communicating with a network of killers in the outside world, but has much more planned than just a prison escape-and there's no telling how many additional killers are out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - (...) - @tss5078 November 12, 2013
The Following is the Spring sensation that took Fox viewers by storm and led to some of the highest ratings for a mid-season debut in network history. After watching one episode, I could see why this show was so popular, it really is right up my ally, and is easily one of the best written shows on network television.

10 years ago, College professor, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), was convicted of the murders of 14 young women. He sits on death row, waiting to be executed, when he launches a daring escape. Completely stunned, the F.B.I. brings in the now retired agent who originally caught him to track him down. Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) is a troubled, lonely man, who just wants to move on with his life and leave all the horrors he's known behind him. Reluctantly, he agrees to find Carroll and to everyone's surprise, does it with ease. As it turns out, getting caught again was all part of Carroll's plan. While in prison, Carroll had spoken with and gotten to know many different people who admire what he did. The charismatic killer has tricked these people into believing that they need to give their lives meaning by being a part of something special, his resurrection. Carroll's getting easily captured by the F.B.I. was nothing more than a signal to his many followers to begin reeking havoc all over the eastern seaboard. The targets are seemingly anyone Carroll ever interacted with and the acts all meant to torment the man who caught him, Ryan Hardy. With no other choice, Hardy agrees to stay on and try to stop whatever was set in motion, before Carroll's plan can come to fruition.

I know what you're thinking, because I was thinking the same thing. It's a great story for one season, but how in the world can they continue this show after that, without it becoming old and repetitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Addicted after 2 shows! March 11, 2013
By K. Fox
I love thrillers. I'm a bit over bloodiness -- it's tolerable here. The suspense is awesome on this!! Kevin Bacon's acting gets much better as the show progresses. I think they do a good job after the 3rd episode of building out the characters. Each show leaves with such a cliff-hanger I can hardly wait for the next episode. Interesting story line although I'll be very curious how they can keep it going after 1 season... seems to be the trend lately where shows fizzle out after one season of a strong plot. Stringing plots along season to season is key and many shows can't seem to succeed with that lately.

If you like thrillers and are looking for a new show, this is a must see!

5.0 out of 5 stars James Purefoy finally gets a good show in America December 27, 2013
By Maxine
When I heard about the casting of this show, I was over the moon about James Purefoy being, not just a regular, but an evil costar.
I was a bit afraid that his tremendous talent would overshadow poor Kevin Bacon. But he's done his best to make us forget "Tim, the alcoholic" from Guiding Light.
Yes James is wonderful, hot, sexy. and, of course exceedingly talented, but this show doesn't let any of that go to waste. So thank you, Fox, for delivering James Purefoy into my living room on a weekly basis, in a vehicle worthy of his great looks and talent.

3.0 out of 5 stars FBI Incompetent? April 25, 2013
This is a good nail biter kind of show with twists and turns, but they make the FBI, and all law enforcement, seem like idiots. They are always splitting up when searching places where the suspects are supposedly hiding. And shocker, some of them always end up getting killed or kidnapped. Somehow, the suspects always seem to escape, typically due to a lack of manpower. Seriously, if there was a cult of serial killers, do you think the Feds would send less than 100 agents to take them down? Of course not, they'd send hundreds, if not thousands.

My wife and I find ourselves often guessing the plot before it happens whenever someone splits up or the suspects start running away. So I guess you could say it's predictable given the way the plot has gone so far. However, they do throw some good twists and turns in every now and again to throw you off. I just wish it was a little more believable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Following Season One January 10, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Following was an interesting show because this show is somewhat similar to Criminal Minds. It is about the FBI versus serial killers. Also, Kevin Bacon is very good as the retired FBI agent brought back in to recapture James Purefoy's character after he escapes from prison in the pilot episode and to stop his followers. I am also happy that The Following is back on television for the second season on January 19th.

5.0 out of 5 stars What does it say about me that I LOVE THIS SHOW? February 6, 2013
By Melissa
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Love this show ... the format, the dialogue, the casting, the acting. But what's WRONG with me as a person that I enjoy watching these psychopaths unravel their plans of evil each week?? I'm hooked!

I have been a fan of both Bacon and Purefoy for many years ... love seeing them sparing together.

5.0 out of 5 stars One twist after another February 27, 2013
By Matt

While at times the plot strains credulity, by and large it walks that fine line well. I'm a big Bacon fan so that is a big factor for me.
