Oh how things have changed!
Fans of The Following got a sneak peek at scenes from Season 3 during the show's panel at New York Comic Con on Sunday, and as usual, there were quite a few shockers.
Did you fall under Stalker's spell?
Now that the latest thriller from Kevin Williamson (The Following, Scream) has premiered on CBS, we want to know what you thought — and what you think of all the new fall shows.
Kevin Williamson is no stranger to defending his work. At the Television Critics Association tour this summer, the creator of The Following and CBS' new thriller Stalker raised eyebrows by encouraging a critic to just "change the channel" if he didn't like what he was seeing on screen. ("I think some people are still kind of raw over The Following," Williamson admitted to TVGuide.com after the panel. "They're fair questions.")
And there's no question that Stalker won't be for everybody. Accusations of excess violence and even misogyny have been leveled at Williamson based on the pilot, whose opening sequence shows a woman screaming as she getting burned alive in her car. But he insists that Stalker is not as violent as The Following, and appeals to a different sense of fear.
