Denette Wilford: 'The Following' Like A Movie Of The Week -- Every Week
Huffington Post - about 4 years
If you've had your TV set to CTV or Fox, or been to a movie theater in the last month or so, "The Following" has been shoved down your throat. Hard. And despite the desire to not give in, all it takes is the first few minutes of the pilot and -- bam! We're sucked in.
Kevin Williamson may be synonymous with teenage horror stories -- the "Scream" movies, "The Vampire Diaries," "Dawson's Creek" -- but his latest creation, "The Following," is as grown-up as it gets.
Aside from appearances as himself ("Will & Grace," "Bored to Death"), Kevin Bacon hasn't been on the small screen since his pre-"Footloose" days as Tim Werner on "Guiding Light" (back when it was called "The Guiding Light"). But Bacon saw first-hand how great a TV gig is, thanks to his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, so he decided to follow (sorry) her to television. And, boy, oh boy, it's quite the return, one reminiscent of Kiefer Sutherland's run as Jack Bauer on "24" (and Fox is hoping lightning strikes twice).
