The Following Finale is Monday + More Series Finales

If you have episodes for The Following backed up on your DVR, then it’s a good idea to get caught up this weekend on plots so when the finale airs Monday night you won’t be shocked (or spoiled).

Myself, I watched three episodes last week, two on Sunday and then the current one on Monday and walked around at work semi-dazed Tuesday morning. Almost everyone took one look at me and said “watched The Following last night huh?” Yes, it’s that intense.

What really shocked me is that my sister came to visit me at work last week and she said to me “so do you watch The Following? I can even sit down when I watch it!” Now my sister doesn’t like anything even mildly scary and she’s really into this show (It could just be Kevin Bacon). Same with my friend at work, her mom’s into this show. Same with my neighbor across the street. She came over on Wednesday and asked if I still had Monday’s episode on my DVR, her husband accidentally deleted it and she was about to kill him – could she watch mine and would I make her some coffee.

Tonight when I signed into my email account, Kevin Bacon was on WhoSay answering Twitter questions from fans about The Following. Each one was individually recorded and everything. He would take his glasses off , repeat the question, answer it. It was really cool. When my sister comes over this weekend I’m going to show her that and I bet she sits down for it. What … you don’t know about WhoSay? Well Google it  and find out.

Other finales for some series I watch include:

Castle (ABC) – Monday, May 13

NCIS (CBS) – Tuesday, May 14

CSI (CBS) – Wednesday, May 15

Elementary – Thursday, May 16

Criminal Minds (CBS) – Wednesday, May 22

Body of Proof (ABC) – Tuesday, May 28

The Following premiered on Monday and tied CBS’ Elementary as the second-highest rated new drama premiere of the season.

AHS: Asylum on FX had its season finale on Wednesday, which was somewhat disappointing, but definitely not unexpected (the three episodes prior to the finale were some of the best). Now that AHS is over, you can concentrate all your brain power on watching The Following.

The review above (click the link) is exceptional, written by Mary McNamara, Television Critic, from the Los Angeles Times. You might need some brain power to read it, because she isn’t one of those entertainment magazine reporters who write a bunch of fluff riddled with typographical errors.

I watched The Following and I loved it. Seeing Kevin Bacon on the small screen was worth tuning in and the supporting cast is exceptional.

Click on the link, read the review and tune in next Monday to watch The Following. Also, don’t forget to set your DVR.

Midseason TV Premiere Schedule

IMDb: Midseason TV Premiere Schedule – a list by IMDb-Editors.

I remember when new shows and new seasons only came around once a year and that was in the Fall. Of course I grew up in a very small town (Stevens Point, Wisconsin) and we didn’t even have a McDonald’s when I left in 1975.

Here at Channel Guide Magazine we celebrate with a midseason issue, but there’s nothing like IMDb.com for an entire list of midseason premieres.

This one is particularly nice since you can view the list in a variety of ways: Title A-Z, List Order, US Release Date, # Ratings, IMDb rating, MOVIEmeter and date added. You can also change the view.

The list was created a month ago, but you can bookmark the page and check back for updates as premiere schedules are announced. Right now there are 81 titles on the list.

You’re looking at the regular IMDb.com page. If you have an imdbpro.com account, you can even copy specific items to your list. In the meantime, enjoy it.

If a particular show you’re looking for, like The Following, starts with the word “The”, you’ll have to look for it under the “Ts.” Speaking of The Following, that’s one show you  might want to add to your DVR settings.
