You get the new FOX network show The Following.
If you haven’t watched this yet, please do so..if your stomach can take it and you have nerves of steel.
That is basically what I’m seeing when I watch this show. It’s a provocative, unnerving look at not only the Svengali star power that a serial killer has, but what he could do with it when given today’s technology, especially if he is not just a killer, but an egomaniacal genius. It makes me shudder.
I guess I’m fascinated with this show because~
A. I’m on the internets all the time, making contact with total strangers, basically telling them exactly how I feel and exactly what to do (follow my doggie on Twitter) and sometimes it works.
2. I’ve always been fascintated with the mind of the criminal. This caused my mother a lot of worry when I was growing up. She would actually sit me down and voice her concerns when I would come home with big stack of questionable reading materials from that most vile of places: the public library.
D. Even in a prison jumpsuit, as a hated killer who gouges people’s eyes out, James Purefoy is hot hot HOT! Like melt my tv hot! For those of you who didn’t already know this, where have you been? Regular readers of mine already know I have a Bic sized torch to carry for him since reading my review of the Resident Evil movies. Clicky clicky already!
This show is a stark commentary on the trust we place in strangers and the far-reaching tentacles made available to us with the wonders of the internet.
The fact that a lot of the action takes place while our killer is in prison, carried out by his rabid and devoted minions is the most frightening of all. Who’s really living next door to you? How well do you know your best friend? Your babysitter?
Scary shit!!!! Please give it a go……if you dare!!!! Buaahaaahaaahaa!!!!
