The Following....

You know me; I am always on the lookout for a new show (and more often than not highly disappointed in what I find),

Currently, I only have a few shows that I can honestly say I really like: NCIS, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Once Upon A Time and The Big Bang Theory.  Only 3 of the 5 are must see TV for me (NCIS, Homeland & Game of Thrones).  And while I like OUAT and TBBT - if I miss an episode, I am content to catch up on it later. 

FOX has a new series starting tonight called The Following starring (whee!) Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy (yes, my 80's is showing).  It's supposed to be dark and brooding and while dark and brooding doesn't normally appeal to me - it doesn't turn me off if the storytelling is good. I don't mind dark, but I can't handle gore for the sake of gore, so I am hoping that it doesn't try to go for !shock! value with the blood and guts.

Any hoo, going to give it a whirl tonight.  Here and here are write ups from TVLine and TVFanatic if anyone is interested in learning more about it.  I will let you know tomorrow if I give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.
