The Following Finale Review

The Following Finale Review
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen The Following Season 1 Finale – “The Final Chapter”. It is endlessly ironic that the tact Ryan used to get under Joe’s skin was to insult his writing and, more specifically, his predictable, boring, and trite ending to his expansive story. It was like the writers... Read more »

The Following Recap - The End is Near... Thank God.
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen The Following Season 1, Ep. 14 – “The End is Near”. I’m tempted to say that “The End is Near” was an entertaining episode, but it may just be the excitement from realizing the end is in fact near talking. Truthfully, the most entertaining part of...

The Following Recap - Havenport
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen The Following, Season 1, Ep. 13 – “Havenport”. Many apologies for the lack of recap last week, I had just gotten back from vacation and couldn’t work up the energy to say in 400 words what I could say in three: this show sucks. But, when... Read more »

The Following Recap - Whips and Regrets
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen The Following Season 1, Ep. 11 – “Whips and Regrets”. Remember how hard it was to make friends as a kid?

The Following Review - Welcome Home

The Following Review - Welcome Home
I don’t pretend to know what goes on during male bonding time, or what men do within the confines of their Persian rug lined man caves, but I have always assumed it didn’t involve gutting each other over a tarp in the most erotic way possible. Perhaps that was just wishful thinking. Look guys, I’ve... Read more »

The Following Review - Let Me Go

The Following Review - Let Me Go
Well whattya know, it only took seven episodes, but The Following is finally starting to live up to its potential. Its not there yet, but this is the closest its gotten so far, so lets celebrate that. Perhaps the improvement was a result of our villain actually posing a real threat. Thanks to Ryan’s finger...

The Following Recap - The Fall

The Following Recap - The Fall
Apparently it takes a hostage situation to give Ryan Hardy a personality. If I had known I would have kidnapped him myself halfway through the first episode. Hardy’s attempt to rescue Joey was quickly thwarted and he was taken hostage instead. While he had no qualms about being killed, he wasn’t interested in getting, Megan,... Read more »

The Following - The Siege

The Following - The Siege
The Following has finally found the secret for a decent episode: less talking. Oh sure, there were still some problems (like kidnappers discussing their kidnapping business in the most easily overheard place as possible and police sending only one deputized alcoholic and a small town cop to check up on the only solid lead they’ve...

The Following Review - Mad Love

The Following Review - Mad Love
Question: What can someone unwilling to kill find in a sociopathic murder club? Answer: Super steamy threesome showers (with no actual nudity, of course). Where do I sign up?!? What was being promoted as a compelling, edgy new drama has taken but four short episodes to devolve into tired clichés, gratuitous violence and some truly... Read more »
