The fact that the FBI estimates that three hundred serial killers operate in the USA is scary enough, imagine if those killers were able to communicate, collaborate and co-ordinate? That's the terrifying premise of Fox's hit new show The Following, starring the phenomenal Kevin Bacon.
This time however, Carroll isn't alone; the charismatic yet sociopathic English lecturer has a following... A team of other serial killers, under his influence and desperate to please, follow his every command and together begin a perfectly orchestrated game of cat and mouse with Hardy and Carroll's ex-wife, Claire. He's abducted their (Joe and Claire's) son and it's up to Ryan to get him back before it's too late.
Easily the best new show of the year, the Following is riveting, enthralling, and gets better and better every time. With each episode the bodies pile up, the plot thickens and the complexity and scale of Joe Carroll's scheme gets bigger and more expansive as more killers are shown to be part of the plan. The killing-cult is vast and refuses to stop growing - trust no one!
There's no doubt that The Following is an instant hit, it's like a locomotive that refuses to slow down. Tune in and become part of The Following - sorry, I couldn't resist!
