Storyline

The FBI estimates there are currently over 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following?

The Wallowing
28 February 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

What started out as quite a promising series, with the decent-enough pilot episode, The Following has unfortunately taken a slow, but noticeable nose dive in quality, until it has reached a nadir in the latest episode (6, I think) where it has started to resemble a facsimile of the numerous other boring FBI/CSI/NYPD shows, only not as interesting, with clunky and unintentionally funny dialogue. People keep banging on about the amount of blood, gore and violence, and there is a portentous disclaimer before each episode highlighting this fact for the squeamish and weak of stomach, but in fact the show is disappointingly bloodless (not that that should every really be a selling point), I've seen more violent episodes of Eastenders. The characters are almost all totally unlikeable and unconvincing, and the the baddies and goodies all supremely incompetent. Kevin Bacon spends most of the time looking uncomfortable, and out or breath, his dicky ticker issue being rammed home at various points by a loud thumping heart noise in the soundtrack. I don't think I'll bother watching any more of The Following, I might do something useful, like re-grout the kitchen floor.
