Official "The Following" thread

The Following premiere's tonight at 9pm on FOX. I am curious since it is a psychological/police drama and has Kevin Bacon. I will give it a try... Anyone else???

***Encore presentation Friday 1/25 at 9pm on FOX***

I'm going to give it a try. We don't watch anything on Mondays right now, so this will fill in the gap. Hope it's good!

I just got around to watching it today. I really liked it a lot. The gore doesn't bother me at all.

I think they are going to make it very difficult for you to predict who is and who isn't a follower. I think if the person seems obvious like the guy who did his thesis on the case, he probably isn't a follower. Too easy.

I was surprised at how easy it was for Kevin to find the killer once he kidnapped the doctor girl. It seems almost as if he wanted to be recaptured. He definitely could have done things differently to at least prolong how long he was out in the free world. At least long enough to see his son or possibly kill his ex wife.

I think the killer was caught exactly when he wanted to be. It's all part of his plan.

If she really read his file then she should have known that he slept with the wife years before (the wife mentioned that it ruined his FBI career so it would be in the file) and to me, the female agent would have given them privacy considering the killer/husband just escaped. I am thinking she may be a "follower" not the guy agent. I don't know but watching it again cemented in my mind that I really like this show.
I couldn't stand the female agent. So I watched the previews for next week's episode at the end of the show very closely. She wasn't in it. So I went to the IMdb.com webpage for The Following, and she's not listed in any episodes other than the pilot. So they have replaced her for the series.

The good thing is that they have filmed 9 more episodes so far.

I do too. The show is called The Following, for his cult following. What greater ultimate control is there than to have a following do all his work. There is no greater loyalty than for them to kill his wife for him. Actions speak louder than any words they could say about their loyalty.

Woo hoo!! I am so glad she is not a regular on the show, I could not stand her and I guess that is why I secretly hoped she was a "follower" and Kevin Bacon would have to kill her...

Imzadi- thanks for the advice to put the show title in quotes to make it stand out more.

It really wasn't a surprise. It was what the killer wanted. He is the puppet master pulling the strings. He can still pull them from prison. He would never have been able to hide out being free, he would have been tracked down and killed. He knew Kevin would find him, and left the breadcrumbs for him to find, and he knew the feds would be right behind him. Did you hear him yell I surrender? He wants to be safe in jail to mess with their heads.

He has already laid out his plans to his followers to follow. Now he gets to watch..

Loved the shows.... I will be following!

I was also wondering if the agent who is in charge of the cults is a follower or if she is messing with him/trying to gain his trust(make him think that she is on his side) by giving him to Poe book. I guess it could go either way and we will have to wait and see....

I watched both this show and The Americans this week and like this one much better... I may give the Americans another try, but this show has me and DH hooked!

I wonder about this as well.

I think the "gay" couple had a different car in episode 2. But either of them would have had OnStar. Interesting they weren't tracked.

Also wonder why the missing guard's face wasn't all over the news since they knew he was in on it.
