The Following is Over.

I am really disappointed with the amount of good shows that have been cancelled this past month or so, but the one that shocked me the most was probably The Following. 

I have watched this show since the beginning and I've loved every minute of it - James Purefoy is an absolute delight to see on-screen and a perfect match to Kevin Bacon's deeply disturbed Ryan Hardy and when they let his character, Joe, go, the show took a twisted turn and actually looked like it was about to get deeper and darker than ever before!

Denied of the 4th season, we'll never quite know where Ryan Hardy was off to and we'll never really see that dark side of him in the way we all hoverd about for in season 3, but the show touched on it enough to really give us, the viewer, the insight into what might have been - and that kills us all a little on the inside!

I am certainly sad to see this show go, though it went out with a little bit of a bang, we'd all have liked some more - I wish that it would be picked up by Hulu or Netflix or something in the future, but nothing is ever set in stone and I have little hope since The Bridge was cancelled last year or when Carnivale was cancelled back in the day - apparently there is just no accounting for taste and/or good T.V.

On a side note, Battle Creek was cancelled, too - another show that had such great potential!

Come on, guys in the big seats, give us something to cling to, here! We're tired of reality T.V!

I hate to admit it, but I miss Joe. He was the kind of character you love to hate and hate to love!

One of the best, for sure! The guy that plays him has a new series coming soon...
