    One of the best tv shows I have seen in a while. Definitely gets better as the season progresses. The acting is great. The show within a show idea is intriguing, but the acting in the fake show is a little campy, but that's to be expected. All I can say is I'm hooked

    This show is amazing. It is one that you really have to pay attention to and analyze what is going on a bit to get the full experience. After the first two episodes the show really takes off, there is a bit of world building that has to be done in order for a viewer to understand what type of danger the characters could possibly be in. The main problem is that unwillingness of other viewers to sit down and watch something that they will have to think through. If you are willing and able to sit down for an hour and use your brain you should enjoy this amazing show. Expand

    It's definitely too laughably convoluted to go into.

    An ill-conceived, poorly scripted, woodenly acted mess, Cult is watchably crazy, but that's the highest praise I can give it.

    Cult is too messy and unnecessarily complex to be the show it could and should be.
