This is actually rather good show. Dialog is convincing and the new events are nicely tied to the privious seasons.

Yes, it has Kevin Bacon. Yes, it has a cool concept. But this much hyped show falls under the weight of audience expectations when they're expecting us to believe that Joe, the guy who has so many oddball connections everywhere, automatically becomes an idiot when his ex-wife becomes involved. The Following tries to introduce characters, but they get killed off too soon for us to care at all about them. Watch Hannibal instead.

If you think of it, this show is basically just a love story between Kevin Bacon & James Purefoy. It is about the jealousy and extent to which a person would go to get the validation and attention from someone she/he loves. It stretched to 3 seasons with nothing new to offer. You would continue to watch it for Kevin Bacon. But it is time someone gave him something worth his while. Such good looks and talent is being wasted!

I watched the first season, but it is a dark plot and I dropped it because I just don't need that much negativity in my TV watching life. Its an excellent show, and I'm sure a modern cult could behave this way.

Bacon is a hard working blue collar actor who has done everything from twinkle toes, to monster, to G-man and has always brought it in solid. He is also the ONLY actor conscientious enough to handle an empty paper coffee cup like it's full BTW (one of my pet peeves, if you start watching for it you'll soon make it one of yours). He does a yeoman's job here as well but unfortunately the plot line just got played out underneath him.

Really enjoyed this. Just a pity they cancelled it - would have been interested to see what happened next.

This show was really great in the first season but the next were a little less. Overall, not a bad series.

This show was good, but it was the same issue in all three seasons.

Man vs Man, a tortured FBI agent vs a charming serial killer cult leader, does it have to get more complicated?, yes, yes it does.
