Joe Carroll is not dead, Ryan Hardy is not “done” and the baby-serial-killer demo is growing faster than Netflix. But still, we have to wonder: Is anyone still following “The Following"? When the grisly Fox drama premiered last year, the buzz centered on Kevin Bacon, whose decision to play FBI Agent Hardy on a broadcast network procedural added bling to TV's new Golden Age. Also a fount of arterial-spray. After a premiere bathed in blood, the conversation changed. So much blood!
Spooky, mysterious, well-acted "Glory Days" is a nice midseason addition to the WB schedule, introducing Mike Dolan (Eddie Cahill) as a 25-year-old greeted by anger, suspicion and turbulence upon returning to his hometown four years after loosely depicting its residents in a best-selling mystery novel connected to his father's supposedly accidental death. Keep your eye here on "supposedly." The town, actually an island in the Pacific Northwest, is Glory; the title of Mike's book is "Glory Days."

But plucky and sincere as the eight-member troupe is, the goods were far from delivered in its six-part program, "The Reveal."

All the cliches of bad modern dance were on display Saturday night when L.A. Contemporary Dance Company presented four world premieres in the first of a two-weekend run at Diavolo Dance Space. Omnipresent angst, frenzied flailing and headache-inducing soundtracks were but some of the offenses lobbed during the 90-minute show, "Modern Myths and Monsters."

John Hughes' '80s high school princess Molly Ringwald has seen her name become cultural shorthand for a certain kind of innocence and adolescent angst. Now, "Scream" and "Dawson's Creek" writer Kevin Williamson has cast Ringwald, 31 and newly wed to French writer Valery Lameignere,] as a faculty member in "Teaching Mrs. Tingle," with '90s princess Katie Holmes as a student.

"Bates Motel": It is impossible for me to overstate how truly fabulous Vera Farmiga's performance is in the crazy, creepy yet emotionally resonant prequel to "Psycho. " The setting is "Twin Peaks"-evocative and the writing is terrific, if a bit overly concerned with making every person in the mythical White Pine Bay, Ore., (which is really Canada) Not Quite What They Seem. All the actors are solid, especially Freddie Highmore as a young sweater-tugging, fugue-state-experiencing Norman and Max Thieriot as his older black-sheep brother Dylan.
