    Stalker is the kind of show that will have you checking the locks on your door--and changing­ your Facebook status to “guarded­ by rabid pitbulls.”

    Stalker won't get the kind of respect "Dexter" did, in part because it is more overtly cheezy in the generic showbiz way.

    The show comes from Kevin Williamson, who created the more equal-opportunity torture porn "The Following," which at least has a literary sheen and some effective scares. Here there are just trope.

    Stalker is pure terror porn from Kevin Williamson, who gave us the Scream horror-movie franchise.

    This series works the tropes without the humor, and the result too often feels exploitive.

    This shoddy program is nothing more than exploitative, misogynist trash.

    TV really doesn't get much uglier or more cynical than CBS's Stalker, a crass and calculated attempt to keep the Criminal Minds crowd appeased for yet another hour of tacky, icky violence--disproportionately perpetrated against unfortunate women--presented within a glum, indifferently acted formula.

    I don't understand why everyone hates this show so much.
    After seeing the first to episodes i must say, i kinda like it.
    It's a little different, more creepy and darker then most crime/detective shows.
    It reminds me of criminal minds (what is one of my favorite shows)
    There are only to episodes so far but i think this has potential.

Also while shining a light on how serious and REAL stalking is in the 21st century.
    I especially love the cast, Especially Beth (nice to see a non white actress as lead). All in all its a great watch for all ages/sexes.

    It is pessimism at its worst. It highlights all the extreme differences between the sexes whereby it cannot muster a single redeeming qualityIt is pessimism at its worst. It highlights all the extreme differences between the sexes whereby it cannot muster a single redeeming quality in men who, according to Stalker, are wholly responsible for the bereft and damaged womenfolk who merely exist to be emotionally and physically violated in the form of men’s pastimes. They even decided to issue one the lead detectives with (yet another) broken marriage and adoring son and ex-wife who he stalked across the country to coerce her to reassess their marriage. It is shockingly narrow, crass and insulting from any viewpoint. Expand
