The Following Season 1 Review “The Fall”

As television dramas are being constructed, there will eventually come a time where the show decides what aspect of television making it is going to hang its hat on. Many times, it boils down to asking what’s more important: character or plot. In recent history, it’s easy to see a string of high-quality dramas they have placed their bets on character and have reaped the rewards as a result. Staying true to characters allows the story to seem richer and more believable to the viewer. Even when the character pulls off something completely preposterous, as long as it is in within the scope of possible behaviors, then viewers can usually suspend their disbelief. Walter White robbing a train seems completely ludicrous, but his level of intellect and hubris make a train heist seem like something within the realm of things he would attempt.
