Cult appears to want to comment on the nature of the relationships between TV creators and TV consumers but keeps falling down the bumpy rabbit hole of its contrived plot.
I want to know more about the things that just snap right off. But I don't care. There's no character in Cult or the Cult-within-Cult who I care about. I don't care about the superficial semi-satire of Hollywood.
It's worth a chance, especially if you're the type who gets bored by the standard show on television. Because if nothing else, Cult is as original as they come.
This is not an easy show to watch, not because of its ambition, but because it's just so pointlessly mysterious.
