    I only watch a few of
    these shows, but I am really looking forward to what The Following will offer.
    One of the guys I work with at DISH showed me the trailer for it a couple of
    days ago, and I really liked what I saw. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a fan of
    Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy either! I guess time will tell how I like it.
    Thankfully I don’t even have to remember to set any individual timers for these
    shows either, since they’ll automatically record with my DISH Hopper DVR’s
    PrimeTime Anytime feature (records all of the major networks primetime shows
    each night automatically for me). I can’t wait! :)
