    I’d rather see him focusing on The Vampire Diaries again, or working on MTV’s Scream series.

  2. KSM says:

    I’d rather see him making another sappy show like Dawson’s Creek, but clearly, that isn’t happening any time soon.

  3. Cassandra says:

    Shouldn’t he be working on fixing the trainwreck that is known as The Following, or he he just going to give up on that? That show started off with so much promise and has just dissolved into a nonsensical gore-fest.

    Boo. Why do show-runners always do this? Do they not realize they cannot balance their time running several shows [sans Shonda who is a GODESS]. The first two seasons of VD were great, but Kevin left to go do The Following. While working on the second season of The Following he obviously put his time into this new pilot. I’m assuming he will step down from The Following if this show gets picked up.

    Love ya, Kevin…but, really?!

    He should go back to The Vampire Diaries. The show sucks with Plec in charge.

  6. AGB says:

    Go back to TVD. The Following sucks and this seems like it could be similar.

    I wish these people would concentrate on the shows they already have. I’ve noticed this happens pretty frequently where these talented people create a good show and then take off after a few seasons for other projects. The original show usually suffers creatively and it’s a shame.

  8. fangirl says:

    The execs shouldn’t reward utter mediocrity by giving the series creators yet another show. They should demand that Williamson make The Following great for 3 seasons before he adds more to his plate. The first 2 episodes of this season were horrible. What a waste of money and talent.

    not so mp. David E. Kelley manage to showrun Ally McBeal and the practice at the same time

    I hate when showrunners leave to do multiple projects. Vampire Diaries suffered when he left, so I expect The Following to get worse now too. It’s just like when JJ Abrams left Alias to do Lost. Alias was incredible in its first two seasons and you can pinpoint the moment he left. Seasons 3-5 were only ok.

  11. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
