Good afternoon dear Reader.......Are you a fan of "The Following?" I started watching it and didn't breathe for the first 3 episodes.......Holy smackers!....Good stuff!....I love watching suspenseful and intriguing stories.....I am not a huge fan of Kevin Bacon! Oh shut up!.... I can hear you ladies, let me finish!....or I wasn't until I saw this show!
I am not a huge fan of any television series as such, though.....They usually drag on far too long and keep one in suspenders for longer than is good for one's sanity and I get over it!.....This blog is going to be a form of critique.....Mind you, I am not an expert in anything so this is just my opinion......Does anyone else get that it is just a tad over the top in places?.......I think I am probably over analysing it far too much, but I like my stories to always make sense otherwise I am left scratching my head, wondering how on earth that happened, or how did they get there....etc etc....Get my drift? Spoils it a bit for me........For instance, the episode where Joe escapes from jail.....How? Ok, we saw him in the prison van, we saw him look at Ryan, the doors closed and then you see the van drive off.....How the hell did the Warden transfer Joe into his boot?.....No, that just didn't make sense, at least, not the way they showed it......I overlooked this bit though, because I was so into it!.......Then you see Joe come to the house and there are about 40 or so people there......Really? I know that in America, in particular, there are a lot of nut cases who idolise serial killers but, really, that many? And all killers? I could understand followers, hence the title. I can't understand that there would be that many killers happy to join a "cult" to go about murdering random people and killing themselves for another serial freak whilst chanting Edgar Allan Poe! That's reasonable isn't it? Am I being over the top myself?
In fairness, there are only a few moments like these that have me thinking that I am not going to watch it anymore.....So last night I watched Episode 14..(Yes, so much for thinking that I may not be watching it anymore during these moments)......I bawled my eyes out when who know who got spiflicated! (I won't say names, just in case you haven't seen that episode!).....I didn't breathe for most of the episode and then I couldn't sleep......Now, that's how it should be all the time.......Great drama and dripping in suspense!......Although the ending was just a bit out there and I am left hanging, as the writers wanted me to be.........How long will I have to wait for the next series? Oh woe is me!
Only kidding, I actually don't take it that seriously....Really!......l don't understand people who get so into a series or a TV show that they act as if it and the characters are real.....They are the real crazies! Oooppps, maybe I shouldn't have said that.......You know the ones.....An actor plays a part for a couple of years in a soap opera and people in the street call them by their characters name....Or you get the true nut jobs who send ugly threatening letters to actors whose characters are nasty in the series....Just plain mad!......
I watched the first episode of "Arrow" as well on Wednesday night....I got hooked straight away.....So now I am in trouble!.....I don't like to watch these TV series because I don't like to feel that I am tied to any one program and if I miss an episode I may stress about what happens.....Oh, it's alright, I am not one of those nut jobs I have been talking about.....It's only about the continuity of the story dear Reader that I stress about! You believe me, don't you?..............Arrow is another show that has left me hanging.....We know he was on an island and went from super rich, spoilt brat, tart, bedding everything with two legs and a skirt, to being super hunk, muscle bound, hubba hubba, type avenger , green hooded person.....We know that he is avenging, but, we don't know why? Any wonder that I am mad as a cut snake! These writers shouldn't leave me hanging....They should answer all my questions so that I don't have to worry if I miss an episode....Then, I suppose, just thinking about it, if they answered all of my questions, no one would watch any more because there would be nothing to watch it for.....Now I'm raving!
Hey, I just heard someone say, "What's new?" Cheeky.....Okay I shall rave no more.....have a beautiful and inspiring day and I'll talk to you later................
