  • Gratuitous EVIL w/ no redeeming qualities

    I like Kevin Bacon, so I wanted to like his show, but there was nothing likable. The show portrayed evil acts being committed by easily manipulated people with no particular motive other than the fact that they were soulless, immature, sheep. The show did not even make much of an attempt to make excuses for the mindlessly evil actions of the characters.
  • A very good show.

    This is sad that the show has ended. First season was good, second a little bit slower but still good and the third one, in particular the first half was the best. I would miss Ryan Hardy and his team. I hope that someone will pick up the show for a movie or at least mini-show of 4-6 episodes giving a real closure.
  • Great ending of show ... spoiler alert

    Just finished watching the last and final season of "The Following" ... In my opinion having Theo being the new nemesis for Ryan Hardy was excellent. And having a shadow cabal of wealthy serial killers was a great idea, in the unlikely eventuality of the show being renewed. Great ending to a great show. Definitely the best ending of a show for many a year, in my opinion.
  • How the show should have ended

    killing of Joe was a big mistake, the chemistry Joe and Ryan were great.

    I was hoping for Ryan to totaly flip out and when Joe started to pop up during Ryans drinking benders I was kind of hoping that during a black out Ryan would accualy start killing people like Joe.

    Or after falling in the river hes struck with amnesia and thinks he is Joe , and starts killing

    Well its obvius were im going with this , I want Ryan to become the type of beast he usally is hunting.

    Think that would have made a very interesting new season and given the series a much needed rebootmoreless
