The Following…I can’t get enough of Kevin Bacon or all the crazies!


Well, if you haven’t watched The Following, you are missing out!  I usually don’t do shows, books, movies, really anything that involves crazy psychos and is liable to get my heart racing.  Well, I caved and started watching The Following last  year.  Mostly, if I am honest, because I love Kevin Bacon.  Yes, the Kevin Bacon from Footloose and Flatliners.  For me, he is scruffy hot and let’s be honest, he rocked the 80s tux in Footloose.  Love the guy.  And he is center stage in The Following.  He plays former FBI agent Ryan Hardy.  I don’t really want to give too much away but let’s say, his past has caught up to him big time in the form of an absolute narcissistic, psychopath Joe Carroll.  The psychopath and his “followers” are just “wow”.  There are not words.  They truly believe in Joe and his teachings.  Ryan Hardy is enemy #1 for them and Joe although in prison is plotting and scheming.  Clearly, Joe doesn’t stay in prison for long and his cult following quickly leaves a mark on civilized society.  Funny enough, I thought the first season couldn’t be outdone with season 2 but the writers have coughed up even more crazies.  John and I can’t get enough of this show.  It makes my Mondays tolerable!  Drinking is advised while watching this show (click on the pic above).  It gives me anxiety (in a good way of course)!
