Problematic most of the time and winks at the camera too much with lore characters, but entertaining at most.
The Following has a huge problem finding the balance in a show about a serial killer by making it quite light, but does keep things entertaining in part by some interesting twists and good performances by Bacon and Purefoy. It stretches all logic at some points that require too much disbelief and minor characters that are reprehensibly unlikable.
Some things are taken away that made it such a highlight and a lot of moments feel repeated for the sake of reminder sake, but the intrigue and espionage is still interesting, the guest cast is impressive and the mysterious nature of Reddington is explored.
Spader performance is excellent, enigmatic and magnetic; elevating the show's fun but implausible crime procedural into something quite more.
The political intrigues are far more interesting and the archetype characters feel more fleshed out this season as opposed to their introductions in the first season. The battle for the papacy has ended and creates a personal and unique take on the Pope's family.
Neil Jordan's vision is intriguing and vulgar that plays off unevenly, but audiences will find many things to be interested in with this family and the individual characters that will be met with open arms (to an extent).
