Now you all know about my TV addiction, and that I have a special fascination for crime dramas involving a really scary bad guy that keeps coming back for more. And for the longest time (in TV years of course), I was convinced that the crown for “Scariest TV Villain” would forever belong to The Reaper from Criminal Minds.
However, after his 3 previous appearances on Bones, I had started leaning towards shifting that crown onto the head of super-genius-psycho-killer Christopher Pelant. And his 4th appearance in last night’s “The Corpse on the Canopy” episode all but confirmed it:
Well that settles it, right? Wrong! What I hadn’t anticipated was the blitz attack of TV’s latest super-monster(s), Joe Carroll and Friends, from Fox’s brand new psychological thriller, The Following:
BTW, clicking on that “INTENSE RATED Trailer” link in the video will take you to the 21 minute long extended clip that’s running right now on The Following homepage.
And how better to conclude such a gut-wrenching drama than by pushing a very familiar, sweet-but-kinky song over the edge into that nightmare we feared might be there all along? This is what was playing at the episode’s end:
DAYUM!!!! 14 straight weeks of that? Mr. Pelant had better return for his revenge on Agent Booth soon if he wants to even remain in the hunt!
I want ice water.
