I just saw the pilot episode of this show. It has Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy (the bad guy from the first Resident Evil movie). I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed it!
I love shows like CSI, Criminal Minds, NCIS, etc. Shows that examine the workings of the minds of killers and such. This show is brilliant, and already the first episode had an amazing twist. I also recognized a lot of actors/actresses that I hadn't seen in quite a while.
Shawn Ashmore - Iceman from X-Men
Maggie Grace - Taken, Taken 2
Nico Tortorella - Trevor from Scream 4
Steve Monroe - The pig from that one episode of Charmed
I was also surprised that FOX (I live in the US, so it might be something different elsewhere) was showing it. Because of the sometimes graphic nature of the show, AND the fact that there is a portrayal of a gay couple. It shows them kissing/making out on a couch in a scene from an upcoming episode. During the commercial breaks, though, there was a constant commercial that the 10pm news crew was going to cover it and the title was something like:
"The Following: Does it push the boundaries of violence on television?"
Who cares?! I know 10 year olds who play GTA. If you don't want your kid to watch it, DON'T LET THEM WATCH IT! Isn't that what parental locks are for?
Anyway! This show is AMAZING and I can't wait to see more!
