  1. Great dead-pan summary of the latest “Following”. No, Olivia was not a bright tool, was she? I watch now from a pure sense of abject animosity, praying that Hardy — or someone — will fire a crystalline bullet directly between Joe’s smugly supercilious eyes, thus ending at once the utter folly and misery of the entire loathsome enterprise. Having allotted so much viewing time thus far, I feel obligated to continue watching until Joe meets his bloody, well deserved, and could not-happen-sooner end. Can this show as constructed possibly continue for another season? Seems impossible. At least there were no over-the-top Poe references last night — except, I suppose, for the repeatedly name-dropped Roderick. Hardy-as-character will vanish from frame long before a second season the way he is rapidly disappearing from view now. Kevin Bacon. Why did he sign on to this thing? If the FBI were really this bad … well, you know what I mean. “Following” truly highlights the disparity between scripted cable programming like “Justified” and network dreck.

    • Thanks for your comment. I loved the show when it started and then it’s gone downhill.
      I am wondering if there is an actual FBI adviser to this show – just like West Wing and Law and Order, tv shows usually hire someone from the “real” world to make it look authentic.
