We are addicted...my husband, my daughter, her boyfriend and myself. It feels a good void while waiting for Dexter to resume.
It is disturbing and a great physological thriller. Am glad to see Kevin Bacon in the role.
I agree about the woman agent...I don't trust her. I didn't watch last night, it is recorded, but I am sure she is one not to be trusted!
Tried to watch it. Terrible script, terrible writing, too reliant on gore to make their point. It was the episode where they call Kevin in to go to work on the case and they all hate him. It was so badly written, so transparent...borrrring.
Turned it off, watched the second of the Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, and was reminded that real writing and real acting does still exist. Just not on network TV.
I love it. The first episode was scary (and I almost turned it off after the dogs too JanM), but I love the unexpected things that happen or they find. Bacon does a great job as a broken man trying to fix his past. And the guy who plays Joe is just creepy!
My (18 year old) daughter and I have been watching it since the beginning--we are HUGE fans of "24", and continuously notice parallels between Kevin Bacon's tortured character and our beloved Jack Bauer
Interesting so far! We have been catching up on the entire Dexter series, are down to the FINAL TWO episodes before the new season starts up again; The Following will fill the gap.

L, if you have Hulu/Netflix, there are tons of shows like The Following that you can stream to your TV/Computer/Tablet. My mom loves watching stuff like that so I picked out quite a few for her to watch and oddly enough, many of them are UK shows.
Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!
