The Following (2013-2015) – TV Series Review
The Review –
Okay I’ve watched every season several times and truly tried to enjoy this show, yet it is impossible. First off I cannot stand the actor Kevin Bacon, everything he is in just seems to have this over acting, not fitting the part type of vibe to it. The only reason I gave this show such a shot is I’m a fan of Valorie Curry’s and it is very sad to see she keeps ending up in shows like this. This show had everything to be a great show, a great soundtrack, a great idea for a story; yet the scripts made all of the feds look like complete idiots, and of course Mr. Bacon’s character was the whole focus point/hero/etc. Very poorly put together from the get go, I was hoping I was just missing something so I watched it over and over on many different days and nights on the just in case I just was having an off night; sadly this show is just a flop. I’m finishing up all of the seasons again today and not once has anything I saw in the show or felt about how good or bad it was has changed. I even looked at other user reviews to see if maybe they saw something that I didn’t though everyone has the same view on it. So much potential yet not enough of stability in scripts/acting/ or a show. How did something this bad go on so long when some of the greatest shows get shut off when they get rolling. I think the only good thing that come from watching this show it is proves that Valorie Curry plays a great villain role and is a remarkable actress and she deserves to be in better films.
