    The Following

    Is anyone planning to watch the premiere of this show tonight? I think Kevin Bacon is a wonderful actor and it also stars James Purefoy and Natalie Zea. My only caveat is that it will have a LOT of gory and grisly detail from what I've read, but I do plan to take a look.

    I'm going to give it a try, even though I'm kind of a chicken when it comes to scary shows. I can't even watch the commercials for American Horror Story. Still, I could watch James Purefoy read the phone book for an hour, so I'm planning on watching.

    I am going to PVR it and watch later on this week. I usually give a show 3 episodes before I throw in the towel. Fingers crossed I like this one - seems interesting!

    Amen to that!

    I won't be able to watch live, but I certainly plan on recording it to watch later. Looks really good...

    Okay, I'm watching the first episode right now and I just got to the thing with the dogs. I might be out. I'm going to try to get through the episode, but damn. That's rough. The girl stabbing herself in the eye was bad enough.

    Re: The Following

    It was pretty graphic/bloody for network tv, but I'm going to stick with it. Good acting, and I'd like to see where it goes from here...

    And yes, Crit, that bath scene will always be burned into my memory.

    I'm a chicken too and I made it up to the dogs, my husband decided to go to bed so I turned off. I may finish it in the daylight.

    Interesting concept, but I'll be watching On Demand. Too grisly too close to bed time.
