Before we get to the review of The Following 3.9 “Kill The Messenger,” here’s a quick recap of last week: THEO IS F@%KING NUTS!!! Sorry, but yeah, it’s true. Michael Ealy‘s portrayal of Theo reached epic proportions last week when his identity was discovered after murdering his wife’s best friend and framing her husband. His response was to “deal” with the situation and that included murdering his wife and leaving his kids to die. Kids saved, Theo put Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) on notice – come after him, and his loved ones will be next…”piece by piece.”

The Following Michael Ealy

The Following
Season 3 Episode 8: “Flesh & Blood”
Created by Kevin Williamson
Directed by Marcos Siega
Written by Michael McGrale, Mary Leah Sutton

Before we get to the review of The Following 3.8 “Flesh & Blood,” here’s a quick recap of last week.

We got a clear vision of Theo, the psychotic “best student” of Arthur Strauss. Having murdered the good doctor, Theo (Michael Ealy) demonstrated his skills as a cyber serial killer by sitting right out in the open in front Max Hardy’s investigation, killing and framing everyone in his path. Max (Jessica Stroup) barely avoided joining his kill-list.

The Following 3.8 “Flesh & Blood” review: We begin Episode 8 with chief suspect Tucker Moore being ceremoniously dispatched by Theo… in a kitchen meat grinder! What complicates Theo is that he appears to be the perfect family man. Sure his wife suspects him of cheating, but not mass murder. Few characters I can think of on television have ever had the drastic duality of Theo. One minute he’s throwing his wife a surprise party, the next murdering her best friend and husband. See… I told you he wasn’t cheating on her!

Try not to fall too in love with any villains on this season of The Following. After Arthur Strauss (Gregg Henry) appeared to arise the new Bid Bad, he was unceremoniously killed off by his “best student” Theo (Michael Eale). Now with Mark Gray (Sam Underwood) on the run, and Daisy (Ruth Kearney) disappeared, we are left with Strauss’s two remaining proteges, Theo and Duncan (Tim Guinee). Of course we still have Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) awaiting the death penalty. Hopefully there’s an escape in our future.

5 words. “What took you so long?” I know Joe, trust me I feel your pain. While no one can say this season of The Following has been boring, it has lacked a certain something thus far. A show never short on evil doers, Season 3 has lacked the “Big Bad.” Mark Gray (Sam Underwood) is totally bonkers having amassed the personality of his dead twin, and Arthur Strauss (Gregg Henry) is a tad blah as the show’s new villainous puppeteer. Thankfully, all the pressure has gotten to Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and he’s returned to seek advice from the man he said he’d never see again… Joe Carroll (the awesome James Purefoy). Their talk comes with conditions: Ryan needs something to catch Strauss. Joe wants what he always wants: More Ryan Hardy. “Tell me something Ryan; in your dreams, am I in them?” Oh, I’m so happy he’s back!

The Following Spoof Funny and Die

Seriously, what DID we do for entertainment before the Internet? I mean, now big time A-list stars go on YouTube and spoof their own work for our enjoyment. Take the new Funny AND Die video based on FOX’s hit thriller, The Following.

Star of the television series Kevin Bacon sits with Oz and Battle Creek star Dean Winters at the Steiner Studio cafeteria talking about his show. “I play this FBI agent Ryan Hardy who’s hunting a cult of serial killers.” “Sounds hilarious.” Bacon describes how working on the show feeds his paranoia and of course the second he leaves for the bathroom, Dean answers his ringing phone and of course Joe Carroll himself in on the phone from prison. James Purefoy revels in the bit as he tells Dean how he is going to sic his following on him.

Air Date: Monday, March 23rd, 2015, 8:00pm

A two-hour dose of the weekly insanity, The Following starts with Kyle (Hunter Parrish) and Daisy (Ruth Kearney) “accidentally” shoving an innocent guy into moving traffic. Last week we learned of some kind of higher evil than Mark. Mark (Sam Underwood) is left a shell of himself as his plans to foil Ryan Hardy and the agents who killed his family keep blowing up in his face. He’s gone from diabolical maniac to sad-faced tag-a-long in just four episodes. It’s a tribute to Underwood’s acting prowess that Mark remains this compelling.

When we last left Ryan Hardy and his world of insanity, Mark Gray (Sam Underwood) and his torturous henchmen forced Agent Jeffrey Clarke (Felix Solis) to broadcast their message to the world of Hardy and friends’ guilt in Lily Gray’s “murder.” Clarke was then brutally killed and left in a gift box for Hardy, Max (Jessica Stroup) and Mike (Shawn Ashmore) to find. Hardy (Kevin Bacon) awakes to bloody nightmares and must face the realizations that the media will be coming for him and his job is on the line. He uses the opportunity to set the media after Mark, a challenge which tests Mark’s last nerve.

Ah, The Following… just when I think I’ve seen every conceivable torture and death trap, you give me something new and horrible to enjoy! We are re-introduced to Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and his FBI colleagues one year after season 2 left off. In the season 3 premiere last week, Hardy and friends uncover a series of gruesome murder scenes with tableaus depicting how Lily Gray and her family were killed in season 2. Lily (Connie Nielson) and her twin boys (Sam Underwood playing both Luke and Mark) were as villainous as the show’s seminal nemesis Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), who is now on death row. Mark, the lone survivor of the Gray family, has seemingly amassed his own following and is ready to get revenge on Hardy, his niece Max (Jessica Stroup), and partner Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) for killing his mom and brother.

Warning! Spoilers for The Following Seasons 1 and 2 here below, as well we recap for this Season 3 premiere.

Two years ago, FOX debuted a new thriller series that brought the horrors of Edgar Allan Poe to the modern stage. Notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (a calm and chilling James Purefoy) is broken out of prison by his “following,” whom he amassed through his pre-killing teaching career and prison internet use. The Following was and is unending, and every time we thought protagonist Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) had him in his sights, more following members pop up to aide their cult-like leader. Season 1 ended in a lighthouse chase where Joe seemingly dies in an explosion.

Blu-ray Review: John Carter

John Carter Blu-ray CoverJohn Carter
Blu-ray | Blu-ray 3D | DVD
Directed by Andrew Stanton
Starring Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Ciarán Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy
Walt Disney Pictures Home Entertainment
Release Date: June 5, 2012

Written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, A Princess of Mars is the first book in the John Carter of Mars series, which tells the story of a Civil War veteran transported to Mars.

For nearly 100 years, Hollywood has failed in its attempts to bring Burroughs’ classic science-fiction fantasy to the silver screen, though the ideas presented were borrowed by countless other works.

Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars series is so old that it actually influenced other influences. From Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian series to the pulpy Flash Gordon serials of the ’30s and ’40s that inspired George Lucas’s Star Wars, the themes and elements of Burroughs’ work have been mined so thoroughly that most moviegoers will find Disney’s live-action film adaptation, John Carter, to be rather irrelevant – but that’s not to say it isn’t entertaining.
