Why The Following Stands Out on Network Television

IGN:
The Raven meets Silence of the Lambs.

As we head into the Holiday season and look forward to what’s to come in the midseason programming line-up, a small, somewhat surprising, trend emerges: network television is taking a dark turn. Perhaps inspired by the success of cable’s The Walking Dead and American Horror Story, network TV has decided to venture into serialized horror with The Following (FOX), Cult (CW) and Hannibal (NBC).

The pilot was sent out this summer and we attended a press event to screen the second episode of The Following last night. We can confirm that this psychological chiller continues to be far closer in tone to one of cable’s adult-themed offerings than 90% of what the networks have on deck. (The Following, TV)

I can't wait for this show. The only problem I have with it is the casting. I wish it was Kevin Bacon as the bad guy. I like Kevin but I love James Purefoy and I can't stand to see him in that type of role. I would like to see him make more movies here in the US.

Can't disagree with that. Kevin Bacon plays a really good villian!

These OTA networks along with WDTV Live are what makes life without cable or dish easy.
