After the amazingly original and gripping first series of The Following, I had a lot of high expectations for the eagerly-awaited second series, such was the addiction of the original series.
The first series of The Following had great plots, great twists and fantastic performances from the cast, as well as great scripts and directing.
However, whilst I would give Series 1 of The Following 10/10 all day long, I must confess that the follow-up was very poor in comparison.
I got the impression such was the success of the original series, the producers rushed the writing of the second series. Poor storyline, weak sub-plots, unbelievable characters and scenarios and Kevin Bacon mumbling through many of his scenes, I was thankful for sub-titles. The first series had the ‘wow factor’ of who was a ‘Joe Follower’, but this series, you could spot them very easy.
The usually-dependable Kevin Bacon appeared bored throughout. James Purefoy was charismatic and evil personified in series 1 is a huge let-down, playing Joe ala Jack Nicholsons’ Joker in Tim Burtons 1989s’ Batman. He hams it up, and plays Joe strictly tongue-in-cheek. Only Shawn Ashmore (Mike) and Valorie Curry (Emma) retain their roles and characters from the first series, playing them exactly as before, with Emma still menacingly sinister and evil.
The twins were unbelievable, almost comical. Lily Grey was so-so, Max was strictly eye-candy, the sub-plot of the cult that Joe takes over was ridiculous, and too many new characters introduced that ultimately went no-where. Too many gadgets, gizmos and technology that would grace the latest James Bond film put me off as well.
VERY disappointing that the gothic writings of Edgar Allen Poe, such an important plot from series 1, were ignored, and only briefly mentioned very late in this series.
I rated series 1 a 10/10, I’m very sorry, but series 2 gets a 5/10, and I’m being generous. A HUGE let down, or in the language of Twitter, ‘an epic fail’

SEASON TWO - (The review does outline the flow of the series)
One year has passed since 'Joe Carrol' (James Purefoy) is believed t have died in the explosion
at the lighthouse, dental records had confirmed it.
'Ryan Hardy' (Kevin Bacon) and his wife 'Claire' were attacked in their home,'Claire' died at nd Hospital.
Ryan' has slowly rebuilt his life away from the F.B.I. and now lectures on crime.
When a number of passengers on a N.Y.subway rail carriage are killed by men wearing 'Joe Carrol'
masks the F.B.I. seek out 'Ryan' and former partner 'Mike Weston' (Shawn Ashmore) too see if they may
be of help as the deaths mark one year since 'Carrol's' supposed death, it looks like related cult killings
or could it be copy-cat, the one survivor from the carriage 'Lily Gray'(Connie Nielsen) will remain at
risk from the cult.
Could it really be that 'Carrol' lives, have the sadistic cult risen from the ashes ?
'Mike Weston' still working with the F.B.I is very much involved in the investigation, can former agent
'Ryan' really ignore what's going on.
Is cult leader alive and pulling the stings and ordering the killings,former foot soldier 'Emma'(Valorie
Hill) is beginning to wonder what's going on hearing the News-Reports.
'Ryan's' niece NYPD cop 'Max Hardy' (Jessica Stroup) is fast becoming involved with her uncles private
need to get questions answered.
The first series was brilliant, this has started with the same intensity, 'James Purefoy' as cult-leader
'Joe Carrol' a master-stroke, perfect casting.

Season one introduced the stock characters Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Joe Carroll (James Purefoy); Hardy the dogged ex-FBI .JC. expert, Carroll the urbane, charismatic serial killer cult leader. The first season seemed a little one dimensional and contrived despite excellent casting and production but it did fall a little flat.

Season two, however, is a completely different animal. JC, unbeknownst to Hardy, has inevitably survived the cataclysmic explosion and is biding his time in some backwoods hovel shacked-up with a lady of negotiable virtue and her daughter. There are, equally inevitably, some new kids on the block to keep Hardy occupied perpetrating bizarre, staged murders. Enter the magnificently bonkers, but strangely likeable, twins Mark and Luke (no doubt Matthew and John will be along later). Going further into the lineage and motivations of these two would be giving too much away, but suffice to say they add a much needed parallel storyline into the narrative. There are plot-twists aplenty, a new religious cult, the fanatically loyal Emma is back, there’s more well reasoned JC lunacy and, of course, lots of messy deaths and some splendid one liners ([daughter]“Mom, it’s not what it looks like.” [JC] “ Yes, Martha, it’s exactly what it looks like.”) The pace never slackens and it is far too easy to gobble up the whole season in a couple of night’s binge-watch.

If you are a bit dubious about the second season after having watched the first then worry not. Season two is far superior; better performances, better writing, better everything. Splendid stuff!
