As stupid as it seems... I swear I read stories about the FBI handling things similarly in real life. I'm not defending it... but it sure seems like when the stuff hits the fan, people don't do the smart thing when chasing a suspect.

Me do not have signature.

The third season has been utterly boring and predictably terrible. I thought parts of season one and two were entertaining in stretches, mostly due to their unpredictability. It is quite apparent their writing talent fled for better shows.

The problem is Joe was 50% of the show. Very charismatic, witty, and funny with his dialogue. But you can't chase him for 4 seasons. Those types of shows have a limited year or two shelf life. You can keep it going but it suffers greatly. They also stopped killing off main characters and cut down on the gore that attracted many viewers in the first place.

Reminds me of Prison Break. After season 2, Prison Break had nothing left and was truly awful.

The interesting characters were Joe, who is barely on it, and Emma who they killed off last season.

After reading all of the comments, I think I can proceed with what I was thinking. Like others, all of the episodes from this season are sitting on my dvr unwatched. As of tonight, they are gone and the season pass deleted.....

The best part of The Following last night was the Schick commercial

I followed it last season, could not swallow it this season. I dumped it off the DVR months ago for the same reason I stopped reading James Patterson. Kill people, change names, kill some more, and yes the bad guy is the evil geniuses, with a junk name.

I'm actually liking this season better than the previous seasons. I've really enjoyed the Michael Ealy character. And now I've been watching The Following on the night it airs and pushing Gotham to being watched later in the week. I've been surprised that I have enjoyed the FOllowing so much this season.

I thought this weeks episode (Ryan going into the prison to get the hostages released) was one of the best of the series. IMO, too bad all the episodes were not of this level. YMMV.
