Ten years ago, FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) took down serial killer Joe Carroll, a Poe scholar responsible for the murders of fourteen young women in a gruesomely romantic way. The takedown was not without a price, though, as Hardy is now an alcoholic stuck with a pacemaker in his chest thanks to Carroll. Hardy, however, has to put that aside when Carroll orchestrates his escape from prison and Hardy is called in to consult with the FBI. What at first seems like a relatively pedestrian breakout is soon revealed to be a bunch of followers that Carroll has recruited and brainwashed on the internet. Though Hardy and his FBI companions are intent on stopping Carroll, and find out that Carroll has develop a cult.
Here it is you have Hannibal and the Following who has psychologist heroes with devilishly charming serial-killing antiheroes.The Following has manipulated the story differently. Carroll has a wife and kid and he is trying to keep him safe. But he has a beef Hardy I do not want to give too much away here. Carroll has planed his escape well it took years to plan. It was not done overnight, he even has access to internet and had a bunch of blog to attract a bunch of followers who will obey at the drop of the hat. Even people visited him signing in different names and it is just the tip of the iceberg. There is some great performances here. The series creates tension thought the story and you can cut it with a knife. The series moves along at the pace you want and that is a good thing you do not want to bore the audience. Great series here give it a try you might like it.
