The Following: The Third and Final Season (2015/Warner Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Episodes: B-

Kevin Bacon returns for the final season of The Following, the thought provoking and intense crime mystery series. In the same vein of shows like HBO's True Detective (reviewed elsewhere on this site), Bacon stars as Former FBI agent Ryan Hardy, who attempts to recapture serial killer Joe Carroll (played by James Purefoy) following the latter's escape from prison. Hardy soon discovers that the charismatic Carroll has surrounded himself with a group of like-minded individuals (which he met while teaching and while in prison), and turned them into a cult of fanatical killers.

Taking place a year after Season 2, this season starts with Joe Caroll is on Death Row facing execution. Ryan is attempting to move on with his life and is in a relationship with a woman named Gwen. When the FBI discover three bodies in a hotel room with a message that says 'Ryan Hardy Lies', he learns that Mark Gray has re-emerged. Concerned for Gwen's safety, Ryan attempts to break off their relationship but she refuses. They learn that Mark now has followers and that they are recreating the scenes in which Mark's family members were killed. The plot thickens as the strange cult ups the ante and threatens Ryan until the grisly truth is finally uncovered.

Season Three includes the episodes New Blood, Boxed In, Exposed, Home, A Hostile Witness, Reunion, The Hunt, Flesh and Blood, Kill the Messenger, Evermore, Demons, The Edge, A Simple Trade, and the final episode entitled The Reckoning.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and an impressive, lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track, The Following looks and sounds incredible on Blu-ray disc, beating out its original broadcast by miles. Lossy French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks are on the disc as well and an Ultraviolet copy included in the release if you like to watch movies on the go.

The Following is a pretty cool show dealing with an out of control cult and the cops who try to stop them Kevin Bacon gives a great performance and I am kinda sad to see this go so soon. All three seasons are available on Blu-ray individually and also combined together in a box set.
