Watch the First Episode of The CW's Zany Cult NOW (VIDEO)

The CW loves to brag about how some of its shows are the most Socially Media'd shows on television right now (search #TVD on Thursday nights and your Twitter feed might make your computer beg for mercy), and it would like to get a head start on TwitBook with its upcoming drama Cult. The network has posted the pilot online over at and Hulu for free (we've embedded it below, just note that it's probably only available to U.S. residents), so stop what you're doing and gives this wacky show a shot.

Cult stars Matt Davis (The Vampire Diaries) as a "journalist blogger" who investigates a string of mysterious incidents surrounding a popular television show. He's joined by one of the show's production assistants, and soon the duo learns the show's fans are re-enacting some of the show's more nefarious elements. But the real treat is the show-within-the-show, which stars Robert Knepper as a crazed and charismatic cult leader and Alona Tal as a cop trying to take him down.

It's been months since I've seen the pilot but I remember thinking that it has the potential to be a lot of fun, especially for fans of The CW. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!

Cult premieres on Tuesday, February 19 at 9pm on The CW.
