The Following

Started to watch tv series - The Following

About The Following:

A brilliant and charismatic, yet psychotic serial killer communicates with other active serial killers and activates a cult of believers following his every command. 

My thoughts after watching first season:

If honest, I'm surprised for imdb's rating 7.7 for this TV-series - Or let's say in other words - I watched first season, but I didn't have this breathtaking feeling that it's mine. It's more appropriate for those who like movie The Twilight -  for teenagers.

Plot line what's concentrated of stories of Edgar Allan Poe - doesn't make a sense for me. Well, I have red some novels by Poe, but still I wouldn't rate this serial too high. I would give it average 5, not 7.7
