The Fol­low­ing

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Wed­nes­day, 9.30pm, Nine Am I the only one hav­ing trou­ble fol­low­ing The Fol­low­ing ? Kevin Ba­con is al­ways watch­able, but as cen­tral char­ac­ter Ryan Hardy, a for­mer FBI agent stabbed in the heart nine years ago by se­rial killer Joe Car­roll (James Pure­foy), I find his char­ac­ter ill-de­fined. Now that Car­roll has es­caped from prison and is back at the game, Hardy has been drafted back to the fold to re­cap­ture his old foe. Car­roll has gath­ered around him a cult of se­rial killers all of whom seem bent on re­venge against Hardy. Hardy has been hav­ing an af­fair with Car­roll’s ex-wife and has writ­ten a true-crime book about Car­roll, but Car­roll also writes books. Then there are the two agents who pre­tend to be gay, but when one falls in love with a woman, the other gets re­ally jeal­ous. Are they se­ri­ous?
