  • Too meta to like

    2 ep (13)
  • Sometimes too confusing

    Exactly. The show started nicely but in the middle it became too perplexed. Near the end it recovered from the downfall but I don't think anybody will pick it up.
  • Series started well, but lost momentum

    I really liked this show in the beginning. I thought the show-within-a-show idea was ingenious, mainly because they managed to make that inner show itself pretty involving, with two engaging main characters.



    By the mid-point in the season though, I found myself losing interest. The early weirdness was increasingly replaced by a more mundane crime drama, as though Twin Peaks had transformed into The Hardy Boys. There was something exhausting about all the characters with all their plots. And while the inner-show stars were intriguing, the outer-show stars were generic and forgettable.



    While early episodes had me excited for the next one, after a while I felt myself losing interest, not wanting to bother, and after episode 8 I came here and read the episode recaps to quickly find out how it all ended. I was particularly glad I did that after reading the final episode, which appears to just throw in a bunch of cliffhanger nuttiness for a second season that's never coming. The ending sounded so stupid that I actually watched the last five minutes of the final episode to see if perhaps the recap left something out, which it didn't.



    While I liked the premise, and there were some good episodes (the last notable one was when one character hallucinates being part of the cult), overall this was a show that failed to honor its early promises to be a crazy-weird mind trip, and wound up being just kind of boring.moreless
  • love it

    I didn't really like the first 2 or 3 episodes, but after that i couldn't get enough. I have a dvr and record so i don't miss it and can watch it when my kids are sleeping. I haven't missed an episode yet. I really hope it comes back for a season 2. I wanna know what happens to roger/billy and the others of course. This show really dose play on the darker side of peoples minds. Anyway absolutely love this oh please return.moreless
  • Less than the sum of its parts.

    4.5
    Some good ideas in need of good direction, good writing and a good cast.
  • IT'S A TWOFER!

    The CW Cancels Cult and the Show Within Cult

    Which will you miss more: the show or the show within the show?

  • THESE THINGS JUST SNAP RIGHT OFF

    Cult "Suffer the Children" Review: Once Upon a Time in the '80s

    This was the first episode since the pilot that left me wanting to spend more time with Dumb Jeff and Sad Skye as we finally made some real progress with this crazy fans/True Believers/fake show/real show insanity.
