Editorial Reviews

Following, The: The Complete First Season (DVD)

When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), 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, Hardy works closely with an FBI team 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. As Hardy and the FBI team are challenged by the ever-growing web of murder around them, masterminded by the diabolical Carroll, Hardy will not only get a second chance to capture Carroll, but another shot at redemption, as he faces not one but an entire cult of serial killers.

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.

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!

Im not going to write a long review. And i am not going to compare it to novels or as in one review that actually got four stars, talk about how much carnage there is, and how long it will take for some sick person to copy what they see on tv? This is what everyone is giving 4 stars for? The story is about a guy who is a genius. He has a cult. "The Following"......Kevin Bacon a once, I think FBI agent, left the force, and was called back to help catch this guy and bring him in. But just cause he is in jail, doesn't mean his cult is not fully planned and doing as instructed. The force with Bacon's help is trying to solve all these bad things that keep coming up all through great planning of this psychopath.....In short Im sure we all have seen something like this in a movie at some point. But as for tv? I think it's fresh, and Bacon and im sorry i don't remember his real name (the bad guy in jail), he is just amazing and perfect for this role. could not get any better than him. All the acting in this is First class all the way. Very entertaining. This show will last as long as Bacon stays on. It's a six year contract. So if you like action, police shows, a little bit of cult thrown at you, then i think you will love this show. It's actually a rush. It moves fast when it needs to, and slows up for really intense moments. You really get to enjoy each scene. Great writing i think. It is certainly worth at least watching the first two episodes to see if you like it. My only complaint, is i wish they allowed Bacon a little more room to act. Meaning to open up just a little. I understand he has a rough past, but allow him character to let one of the agents closer to him even a little. It will also allow Bacon to use more of his acting skills. Great show. I hope they don't take it off the air......5 stars all the way.

If you want a summary of the premise for 'The Following', try this:

An FBI agent hunting a vicious serial killer seeks the aid of a brilliant university professor for his insight into the murderer's motivations. As it happens, the prof IS the serial killer. When the truth is revealed, a brutal life or death struggle ensues, except... neither man dies. The killer is fast, striking first and striking hard, but the agent hangs on to consciousness long enough to stop him from finishing the job. The psychopathic professor is badly wounded, but is patched up and sent to prison. The hero is more seriously injured, and bears emotional as well as physical scars. Years later, the now-retired agent is called upon to help with another series of killings that his maniacal nemesis is the key to stopping.

That's actually a summary of the premise for 'Red Dragon', but it also sums up the back-story for 'The Following' perfectly well, and comes pretty close to quite a few other serial killer movies and TV shows, of varying quality and limited originality, that have appeared since 'Silence of the Lambs'. The show's writer and creator, Kevin Williamson, knows all about clichés, making a name for himself with 'Scream'; it was a clever satire that played with the comically repetitive tropes of the horror genre, and a fairly suspenseful horror film in its own right. He also created 'Dawson's Creek', and some truly mediocre movies like 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'. There's no real excuse, then, for the criminally derivative aspects of 'The Following', especially coming from a writer as attuned to pop culture precedent as Williamson; actually, there's never any excuse for the recycled garbage that ends up as 'cop show 5267B', but...
