    The Following

    I'm liking this series so far. My favorite part has to be when Ryan is talking to Joe at the end of the first episode. As a writer, it chilled me to the bone about Joe writing his "second" book.

    I'm trying to like it, but all the cop screw ups aren't believable. The wife should've gone into witness protection.

    I have gone past expecting "realism" when watching my t.v. shows. I'm mostly there for character interactions and plot. So far the "idea" behind the show is very chilling IMO

    the most recent issue of tv guide named this one of the top (actually they ranked it as the number 1) new dramas on television. They remarked on it's intelligent writing plotting and intriguing twists...

    Maybe the people at tv guide don't watch tv.

    Is anyone else still watching this?

    Up until last week I was enjoying hating it. Then, last week, i decided it had to be the most masochistic show on tv.

    This week cofirmed that diagnosis. I actually felt a bit dirty when it was over.

    I've been watching it. I'm touch and go right now. Some episodes I like, some bore me to tears.

    I'm torn about this show. Bacon is excellent. The rest of the cast is top notch too. But the premise is a bit hard to swallow -- I mean, WHY are these people doing these things? I have a hard time buying the cult mentality in this case.
