Kevin Williamson's new CBS series Stalker
isn't getting much love from the critics, even BuddyTV ranked it as the worst new show
, and I have to question why. The subject matter is no secret given the title, but if the statistics cited at the beginning of the premiere episode are accurate (six million people stalked each year), that certainly warrants some attention. While Fatal Attraction
may immediately come to mind, the perpetrators are driven by may reasons: revenge, envy and rejection to name a few. It can be due to a break up or "delusional fixations pushed to extremes."
is no more disturbing than FOX's The Following
and both stay true to their creator's artistic vision-to scare the crap out of viewers. For those who don't have a yen to watch grisly violence, I'd suggest sticking to Williamson's sexy and sedate teen sensation The Vampire Diaries
