Cult is the most addictive show on The CW and tonight at 9p you can find out why! The drama is a show within a show, and it will have you under its spell before the opening credits begin. The CW’s shows are known for having a cult following, so it makes sense that they would do a show that has such a following that people would be trying to recreate it their own lives when they turn their televisions off. Does that make sense? It will when you watch my favorite new drama of the season.
Jeff (Matthew Davis) is a recently fired Washington Post investigative reporter who has moved to LA. Nate, his younger brother is so addicted to the show Cult that he plays along with other fans. When Nate gets the final clue to a mystery, he goes missing and now his brother is trying to find him. When Jeff goes to the set to learn more about the show, he meets Skye Yarrow (Jessica Lucas) a research on Cult. Together the two pair up and learn more about the fans that take fanatical to a whole new level. These viewers are willing to risk their lives to keep the game going and that means they will lose more than the game, they will lose their lives.
Along with learning about the fans, we get to watch the show that has them so brainwashed. Robert Knepper plays the actor Roger Reeves who plays the scary cult leader Billy Grimm perfectly. The EP is mysterious man, who no one ever sees. Does he really exist? We will have tune in to find out.
Ever since I watched the pilot over the summer, I have wanted more. I am so happy that you will finally be able to experience this original and well-executed suspenseful show tonight. I have a feeling that Cult will have a cult following by the end of its first episode.
