I just watched a Criminal Minds and I agree, they are both similar for the gruesome stuff.
I like programs like Castle, Suits, White Collar, etc. a lot better.
And.............. (this symbolizes an awkward pause while we wait for the next commen)
Makes one wonder about society when people find language offensive but not graphic violence.
Ever visit Europe? You'll find over there that language and nudity are no big deal but violence is a big no-no.
Tell that to the team responsible for "Ripper Street."
That was made by BBC America for American audiences, not distribution in the UK. They know how we like our violence.
"I'd rather cuddle than have sex."
"I'd rather cuddle then have sex."
One word does make a difference.
Did anyone watch this week's episode of "Criminal Minds" running from 9-10 pm and, as I did, think about the criticism of Fox here for "The Following" being too gruesome? And about the eye issue....
I am trying not to get to interested in it because of FOX's recent track record with the new shows they push hard prior to starting (Alcatraz & Chicago Code).
I loved both Chicago Code and Alcatraz and then they were just gone as soon as they began. The Following started great but we will see if they plan a 2nd season. The last thing I want is it to turn into a Prison Break type show that stayed way to long. Hopefully FOX will get it right this time.
Yep, I do miss Alcatraz.
Ripper Street is also running in the UK on BBC1.
Missy and I just watched The Following. We just don't see what the big deal is. " Bones" and " Criminal Minds" (just to name two shows) are just as, if not more graphic than this show.
We both like the show and are looking forward to a successful run.
I think the people at 1600 Penn didn't get the message their show was cancelled. Yes, it's that moronic. :hurah:
It's supposed to be, that's the point.
My wife and I were big Fringe fans, and she liked Alcatraz.
But neither of us were that into The Following.
I'll give it at least another week though.
I can't really compare this show to the scifi show Fox has aired that I really loved.
"The Following" is a psychological crime procedural of sorts with an overarching story arc about a cult of followers of a serial killer, with all the humor and charm of "Criminal Minds" (also on at 9 pm on a broadcast network) and the warm appeal of the Manson Family.
For Fox I see it more like "Prison Break" in that they're trying to get an audience for a Monday time slot with something not too different than what wins time slots for CBS.
Apparently some sensitive folks think its far more violent than "Prison Break." They either didn't watch Fox on Mondays from the fall of 2005 through the spring of 2009 or have short memories as "Prison Break" won a People's Choice Award in 2006.
Admittedly this show is likely to have a few more Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell's, that lovable, cunning, violent, and manipulative psychopath.
Again, I liked the premier episode - thought it was well put together for a pilot. Given the amount of back story crammed into an hour, it didn't feel nearly as heavy handed as some pilots.
The Following has much more gore than any of those shows.
This isn't your typical TV crime drama and has little in common with Bones, Castle, Hawaii Five-0.
It's more like “Red Dragon” (or the ’86 version “Manhunter”) was made into a TV series with all the darkness and most of the gore.
A 9:00pm timeslot seems inappropriate.
...that is the latest time-slot available to FOX.
