'The Following' - 'Pilot'

What did everybody think of Kevin Bacon's new FOX serial killer drama?

I posted my review of "The Followingon Friday, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of middle ground for this one, based on the other reviews I've seen; the critics either love it or strongly dislike it. I'm assuming your reaction will be much the same way — and am prepared for a great number of you to disagree with me on this one — but as always with a major new show that's just premiered, the floor is now yours.

Did you find the show disturbing? Silly? Somewhere in between? Did you find all the Edgar Allen Poe talk profound or pretentious? Did you like James Purefoy as a hunkier Hannibal Lecter? Did Kevin Bacon work for you as the haunted profiler? Did the various twists and scares work on you, or feel clichéd? And will you watch again next week? 

Have at it.

Kevin Bacon chases a charismatic but cliched serial killer in new drama from Kevin Williamson

Kevin Williamson has forgotten more about horror than I'll ever learn. His scripts for both the big screen ("I Know What You Did Last Summer") and small ("Dawson's Creek") are overflowing with a love of popular culture and horror stories in particular. His movie debut, 1996's "Scream," breathed new life into a thoroughly played-out genre by making a slasher movie where all the characters were aware they were in a slasher movie, and of the rules that govern such a story.

His new FOX drama "The Following" (it debuts Monday night at 9) is informed by Williamson's devotion to another kind of horror story: tales of charismatic, omniscient serial killers, particularly as popularized by "Silence of the Lambs" and the other Hannibal Lecter films. But here, the tone is deadly serious throughout. It's a series riddled with clichés, but without anyone to point them out along the way.

'Legit' - 'Pilot': DJ Qualls takes another road trip

What did everybody think of the new FX comedy with Jim Jefferies?

I published my review of FX's "Legit" yesterday. Now it's your turn. What did everybody else think of the new comedy? If you were previously a Jim Jefferies fan, did this feel true to his stand-up persona? If he's new to you, what did you think of the guy? Did you like the visit to the whorehouse or find the whole thing uncomfortable? Did this show make better use of Mumford and Sons' "The Cave" then "Lone Star" did a couple of years ago? (UPDATE: Never mind on that; they dumped "The Cave" at last minute for a fun. song instead.) And will you watch again?

Have at it.
