Bigger,better,faster:thats Season 2.,
This review is from: The Following - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
If you recall adverts for products such as the VW Golf that claim that the new version tops the older model, then this could be said of Season 2 of The Following in my opinion.
Serial killer Joe Carroll is still alive and kicking and is motivating groups of would-be killers to perform acts of outrage often with the aim of taking revenge against Ryan Hardy for originally capturing him and 'stealing' his ex-wife.
James Purefoy and Kevin Bacon continue their central roles respectively and are again the backbone of the 2nd season;as previously whatever faults there were in season 1 were overshadowed by their commanding performances,and this season gives them more depth as the story progresses.
Connie Nielsen (of Gladiator (2000) - Two Disc Set [DVD] fame)is the new love interest in Bacons life as he tries to settle into his new life away from the FBI,but never far away are the machinations of Purefoy's serial killer and his following.
It's more of the same,with some of the solid characters of the previous season giving equally pertinent support.
If you found season 1 bland and silly don't bother;some people did.There is more of the same here,with 'followers' comming out of the woodwork when you least expect it which to me added to the plot.
In conclusion I think this is an excellent follow up and adds to the 1st season if you are desperate for more.
