'The Following' -- watched it  
So I watched The Following. Thoughts behind the cut.

- Ooh, spooky and bloody.

- Mark-Antony!


- Marcos Siega -- DOUBLE FOR YOU, BOO!!!

- It's Kevin Bacon. I've always liked Kevin Bacon.

- Aww, so it really was Shannon I couldn't stand because I've liked Maggie Grace in everything else I've seen her in.

- I still remember Natalie Zea from Passions, I've watched her in just about everything she's done since then, I like her.

- Ooh, CAROL LOCKWOOD LIVES!!! Erm, OK, fine, it's just Susan Walters, but still nice to see her again so soon. Considering we may continue to see flashbacks from the trial, I think it's possible we'll see her more.

- An Ashmore twin! And he's fan-boying Hardy.

- So we get to the meaning of the show's title. The guard is a member of Carroll's following. Hmm...

- Ooh, lost puppies and mutilated dogs. UGH!

- Wow, so the gay dudes are part of Carroll's following too and lay in wait for three years, dang!

- OK, so for some reason I thought that Maggie Grace was a series regular. Aww. Clearly she's not seeing as how Carroll killed her. Guh, I feel so bad for her, actually got her life together and Carroll destroys it.

- Ooh, so the "sequel" is being set-up. The kidnapped son via the nanny and the two "gay" guys, and of course, the guard is starting fresh killing.

Overall, very compelling and ooky. Great acting. Pretty durn good so far!

I liked the flashbacks a little more than I liked the present day stuff because knowing what they know about him, they seemed a bit slow.

Maggie Grace did a great job of making me care about her character so of course she'd die. I didn't even realize that was Shannon from Lost. (But I never really watched so I guess that's to be expected.)

I love Bacon in general so I will definitely keep watching and hope I get a little more invested in the whole followers stuff. I also like Purefoy.

And one of my favorite soap crazies is joining the cast next week. I've loved Annie Parisse ever since she was crazy Julia on ATWT. Such fun. (Which is one thing I'd love to see with this show--a bit more humor).

I actually would have liked to see more of the flashbacks, huh!

Maggie Grace really did do a great job. As did the whole cast really.

I always love seeing Annie Parisse -- she's recurring on Person of Interest too. Such a fantastic actress.

I loved this show. Just tuned in because of my crush on Kevin Bacon and was kept on the edge of my seat for the entire hour.

I'm also looking forward to Annie Parisse joining this show. Loved her as Julia on ATWT, even though she kept my Carjack apart.

I'm a big Kevin Williamson fan because of The Vampire Diaries, and then there were such great reviews, and I like all the cast so I had high hopes. They were all met. :)

Annie Parisse is awesome.

I just watched it and I loved it! It really is my kind of show: literary reference, psychological thriller and crime drama all in one. I liked all of the cast too, it was really weird that not one of them annoyed me. It my come later but for now it's a score! The only thing that is bugging me is that I don't see how a plot can extend multiple seasons. When they catch them all and Carroll dies what then?

I'm not sure how it goes beyond one season too. The only thing I can imagine is that there will be other serial killers and Carroll will be someone who's brain they pick. I dunno.

Hi! I found this post through a Google search for comms for The Following... do you happen to know of any? I'm desperately searching because I'm not going to keep track of this all on my own!

(PS You have awesome taste in TV shows!)
