    • best series ever

      This show was great, Kevin Bacon is amazing, so is Joe. I like the way he moves his head in a special way, whenever talking or talked to, I mean Joe. Kevin Bacon is very handsome, he acts perfectly. I give this series a 5 stars.
    • Awesome Show

      I am very sad that the show has ended. This show was amazing. I really wanted them to make a season 4. I don't know why this show was not liked. I loved it and I wish that is never ended and got another chance to prove itself. I know some people don't like shows that involve murder, and that's ok, but they don't need to watch the show. This show is for people who are interested in action and just because you don't like the show doesn't mean you have to try and get it cancelled and not back on the air. I am super upset and I wish that this show stayed on longer. I hope most of you agree and if you don't that's ok. I was just sharing my opinion and I don't mean to be rude to anyone. I really hope that someone picks this show up and starts a season 4. All of the actors did such an amazing job and I really want there to be more of the show. I want to see what Ryan Hardy has in store and what he is going to do now that we know he is alive. I hope most of you agree and will help try to get the show back on TV.moreless
    • 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.
