    I liked it, I don't know if DBF did or not but I really did. I thought it was pretty intense for regular TV and slightly predictable but I did enjoy it. I'll probably begin to record it as I work Monday nights but I watched it on On Demand so if there are conflicts I will still get to watch it.

    I will try to catch it tonight. I love kevin bacon!

    What will be the regular night for this show? Since Fringe is no longer on Friday nights, we are looking for a Friday show. I wonder if they are trying to pick up the Fringe fans since they are putting it in that time slot tonight?

    I actually watched most of it again tonight and caught a few things I didn't the first night. The vodka in the water bottle, he really chugged it back and then added more, yikes!! Also the agent that said she read his file seemed a little too interested in what his conversation was with the killer's wife. 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 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.

    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. :thumbsup2


    ::yes:: 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.

    DH and I are watching. The first episode had almost too much going on but hooked us. Second episode added to it. looking forward to the remaining 12.

    Question - is the new FBI agent a Follower? Why did she give Joe the Poe book?

    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!

    A new federal agent (Parker), also a female was brought in since the last one let Hardy (Kevin Bacon) speak to the killer Joe Carroll and he broke three of his fingers... Anyway she is very suspicious and appears to be a follower because she has a background in cult/religious extremists and runs the FBI's task force on cults. At the end of the episode she brought Carroll a large Edgar Allen Poe book since he mentioned in one of his interviews that he misses having something to read.

    The security guard killed 3 girls at the sorority house.. Several others got away. He then went after Carroll's ex-wife and Hardy figured it out and saved her and was able to catch the security guard without killing him which is what the serial killer was not expecting.. maybe they can flip him and find out where the boy is but not likely since he was not the "follower" that runs the show on the outside. It appears that the babysitter is the one running things and she is involved with one of the boys that were the neighbors of the last victim of the Carroll. They showed flashbacks to when he enlisted her and how he was able to read her very quickly that she hated her mother and so he set her up with one of the boys and the 2 of them killed her mother. The house where the followers were hiding out for years was her house she grew up in, it turns out she signed in to visit Carroll in prison using her real name during her very first visit.. They found creepy masks and another follower at the house and he got away but confirmed that Hardy will die but just not that day.

    They also showed flashbacks to how Hardy and the ex-wife got together. It was after she got a divorce and during the trial. They were together for 2 months but Hardy seemed to be the one who broke it off. The husband found out and wrote her a letter questioning this and when the son was taken, she went to speak with him and she confirmed that she had a relationship with Hardy. Since she is the one true love of the serial killer's life, he is hell bent on making Hardy suffer.

    The very end showed a guy on a city street, wearing one of the creepy masks, lighting someone on fire at a vendor kiosk.

    That's what I remember from the episode.
