This show tries to glom off the success of others in the serial killer genre like Dexter and Hannibal. Unfortunately it has neither the humor of the former or the creepiness of the latter. Instead it has lots and lots AND LOTS of mostly innocent bystanders getting their throats slashed and almost as many instances of the FBI making the worst possible decision. There's close to zero character development and the main reason to watch the next episode is to see how ridiculous it gets.
.
I did enjoy James Purefoy's performance as the demented cult leader but even that eventually runs out of steam as he is supplanted by another and another AND YET ANOTHER crop of wackos for Kevin Bacon to blast away.

I believe the moral of the story is that EVERYONE you know (your coworkers, your neighbors, your friends, your family) - THEY ARE ALL SERIAL KILLERS AND YOU NEED TO BE VERY AFRAID AND IF YOU'RE NOT - THEN YOU ARE MOST DEFINITELY A SERIAL KILLER!

With the best imagination I can muster I cannot understand how this show, in any of it's seasons gets these high ratings. The only thing I can figure is that the raters are ten-year-olds who have no need for shows to be anything but violent, certainly having no need for the writing or acting to be believable. These shows portray the FBI to be the most inept, ineffective law enforcement agency ever imagined. In every area the writers failed to do any research, which would be o.k. if the show didn't take itself so seriously. I would recommend, and I cannot overstate this, avoiding this show unless you want to feel like you have to watch it to its completion hoping, to no avail, that it will get better at some point. It never does. Watch at your own risk, but know that you have been warned.

The second series is no less bloody, but a more conventional drama with a recovered Ryan Hardy still on the trail of the supposedly killed James Purefoy. There are clever twists and red herrings as in season 1, but (SPOILER ALERT!) the last few episodes are very hard to believe and take seriously as our antagonist loses his will to kill Hardy. This relieves tension for the viewer, but does not advance the story which has been building toward climax!

Good, solid, action-packed & suspenseful second season, that didn't rest on its success from season one. Some story improbabilities, but to be expected from a TV show. Hoping it comes back for season 3.

Gave up after a few episodes, as in season one, bad writing and continuous illogical at every turn.
