TV: Like Serial Killers? Like Kevin Williamson? Like Kevin Bacon? Here’s “The Following”

I’m not sure if I have any more room left in my day, let alone another hour to dedicate to another TV show. This is where you guys come into play. As someone who hasn’t ever seen an episode of “The Vampire Diaries”, I’m not terribly inclined to watch Fox’s “The Following” (aka the new Kevin Williamson show). But I like Kevin Bacon and I like Natalie Zea (“Justified”, The Other Guys). So I’m asking one of you guys to check this thing out when it premieres midseason and tell me if it’s worth a d*mn. It’s also got Shawn Ashmore for all you Frozen and Mother’s Day fans out there.

THE FBI estimates there are currently over 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following? Welcome to “The Following”, the terrifying new thriller from creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Dawson’s Creek,” the ‘Scream’ franchise). When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy, “Rome”) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Emmy-nominated actor Kevin Bacon, ‘X-Men: First Class’) to consult on the case. Having since withdrawn from the public eye, Hardy was responsible for Carroll’s capture nine years ago, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on the Virginia college campus where he taught literature.
