I think the turning point for me was the local cop being on team Joe. I get the feeling they wrote this show on the fly and didn't know how to get out of the situation. :D


I pegged her as a follower immediately the previous week. And from the reviews I've read, a lot of others pegged her too.

Joe has way too many visitors in prison. Put him in solitary for a bit and see if the Followers lose their way. But then I suppose you wouldn't have much of a show.

They don't have much of a show now, even with all the unbelievable stuff they are asking us to swallow whole.

She left Justified to be in this mess. It will not see a 16th ep, very likely (unless FOX is desperate and has nothing left in the cupboard to replace it next year), while Justified probably has 2 or 3 more years in it (maybe more if she had stuck around). But then she probably gets 3 times per ep what she was getting in Justified. I first saw her in Dirty Sexy Money; snapped my neck around; still hurts.

It's been renewed.

OK, I get that now. But it will not see a 4th episode where I live.

And that just points out the relative current level of flop sweat at FOX, rather than validates this as any sort of quality show.

Oh, so because you don't like it, then it's considered "flop sweat" and not quality? :rolleyes:

Season Two! You got to be kidding me.

I'm not paying much attention, so have they explain how this 'I'll soon as kill ya as look at you' cult get their money for a mansion or helicopter or is it like the warden? Kidnapped and hold a relatives in order to get their way.

Glad Boston didn't follow the Following script on how to hunt down a mass murderer.

Well, if the manhunt were over in four days, it wouldn't be much of a series...

Same here. The show's writers have lost their focus.

I had to bail on this one long ago.  It just didn't seem like it could go anywhere.

I stuck with it, but was hopeful it would all wrap up in a single season. If it's been renewed, I can't imagine them dragging this out for another 12-16 episodes, or whatever the 2014 order is.  :nono2:

ALERT -- Not sure if it is all the East Coast, but the schedule 10:30 PM start of The Following on Fox started at about 10:20. 

 

EDIT: -- I see the same episode is scheduled for Monday night (1/20/14) at 8 PM eastern and then following episodes at 9 PMs on Mondays (this season Premier "Resurrection" is 1.5 hours long). So if you miss the first 10 minutes tonight, you can catch it tomorrow night.
