Camp and brain-rotting it may be, but The Following's second season is always entertaining. Here's Ron's review of Unmasked...

2.9 Unmasked

I have to say that the one thing missing from Joe's cult last season has been supplied this season thanks to Micah and Julia's little community of berobed killers in the making. It seems like all the classic cults, barring the Manson family, have had a serious religious bent. Joe's first cult was kind of Manson in its genesis, but its execution—a big house full of people and lots of bribery and whatnot of local officials—was more like something out of the Jonestown playbook. This season's cult, Aka Korban, provides some much-needed religious lunacy to go along with the compound setting that's apparently within a few minutes' drive of New York City.

The takeover's been pretty obvious from the beginning. »

The Following, Ep. 2.09, “Unmasked”: Praise Joe

The Following, Season 2, Episode 9, “Unmasked”

Written by Vincent Angell

Directed by Nicole Kassell

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

The Following figured out the best thing going for the second season a couple weeks ago and has been playing it up ever since- Joe’s (James Purefoy) manipulation of Micah (Jake Weber) is perfection, easily distracting from some of the episodes’ issues. Joe has always been at his best as a character when he has a group to control and an audience to play to. His final moments in “Unmasked” highlight this point to a terrifying degree.

Finding the FBI mole, Jana (Leslie Bibb), seemed to be a big deal but there was never enough attention paid to it; it seemed like once the information was out there, that it would have implications that would ripple through the rest of the season, but The Following has always had a »

The Following season 2 episode 2 review: For Joe

Review Ron Hogan 29 Jan 2014 - 07:38

The Following is one of the most hateful, cruel shows on television and is all the better for it. Here's Ron's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 For Joe

Last year's Edgar Allan Poe mask has become this year's Joe Carroll mask, and with the show's reduced interest in Poe's work and its increased interest in working Joe Carroll's magnum opus masterwork, The Following seems to actually have improved. Well, perhaps not improved, but it's a little different. As good as the Edgar Allan Poe masks were from the first season, there's nothing quite as creepy as the Joe Carroll masks sported by The Following's new twin Patricks Bateman. When Joe Carroll's dead-eyed face steps out from the shadows wielding a knife, looking just enough like James Purefoy to put the non-Joes into Uncanny Valley, it's one of the more disturbing things on network television. »

The Following, Ep. 2.02, “For Joe”: A certain helplessness

28 January 2014 9:17 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Following, Season 2, Episode 2

Written by Vincent Angell

Directed by Joshua Butler

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

Here’s the thing- The Following is crazy. Like eye-rolling, “you have got to be kidding me, did that just happen?” crazy. But for all the craziness and terrible law enforcement techniques, The Following is really, really fun. Last week’s premiere, “Resurrection”, was a great reintroduction to the show and a way to meet the new characters, but far and away the best moment was Joe’s reappearance at the end of the episode. “For Joe”, the second episode, is even better.

“Resurrection” was slightly confusing, because there was so much ground to cover and so many people to introduce, but “For Joe” is more tightly constructed, exciting, and it manages to answer a few more questions, chief among them, where exactly Joe (James Purefoy) has been hiding out for the last year. »
