Everyone's a critic. Even murderers.
For the most part, viewers of Fox's "The Following" have been raving about its unrelenting violence, suspense, and unpredictable nature. For the most part.
The New York Post reached out to real life serial killer 'Raven', profiled on Investigation Discovery's series "Dark Minds" and currently serving a life sentence in prison. Unfortunately, Raven was not a fan of the Kevin Bacon/James Purefoy thriller.
After asking Raven what he thought of the series first two episodes, "Dark Minds" host M. William Phelps said, "He just started laughing... It looked like a cartoon to him."
"They just can't seem to ever get it right in Hollywood when it comes to what really makes us tick," Raven said. "We would never kill in that manner... We don't have Edgar Allan Poe heads in a closet. Real serial killers create a legend. They don't latch onto Edgar Allan Poe. And the last thing they would do is engage the police."
At this point I'd like to note the irony of a man with the pseudonym of 'Raven' deriding the heavy reference to Edgar Allan Poe. That's so Raven! Regardless, Kevin Bacon and friends clearly can't please everyone all the time, so they'll just have to settle for the near 10 million that tuned in this week.
