Cult- You’re Next (1×01)

Published

on


“Sometimes these things just snap right off.”
I decided to give this new CW show, Cult, a try and I have mixed feelings. Basically it’s a show within a show, which has potential of becoming to serialized and confusing. Tuesday’s premiere did not debut to positive ratings drawing in a mere 950,000 viewers. Pathetic. In all honesty, the show probably deserved much better.

Jeff, whom we know is a reporter at some crappy magazine after he got fired from The Washington Post for fabricating sources in a story and imprisoning six guilty police officers, meets up with his brother Nate, who is a dedicated follower of the show The Cult that airs on The CW. Yes, Cult on The CW is a show in the show thats called Cult and airs on The Cw. Neat right? Self promotion at its finest. His brother has a past with drugs, so Jeff kind of blows him off thinking that he’s just paranoid again. Nate leaves him with a contact to Meriam and some glasses.

While we follow Jeff to the WB studios where he meets Skye, a researcher on the show thats interested in the fan base that actually believes that once you get into this show the things actually start happening. Their like a cult following cultivated by the cult leader Billy Grimm. There is a little cafe that people go to, to watch the show and do research to dig deeper into their obsession. People dress up like the characters in the show and mimic what those characters do. Its really some kind of mind control thing. Well anyways, Skye and Jeff track down one of these places where people do secret meets and Jeff finds Miriam here. Before he can get any answers she utters the phrase, “sometimes these things just snap right off” which is a really popular phrase used in the show and by the people associated with the show in real life. What the phrase really means, no one knows but its used right before people die.
Well, these events lead Jeff to the police officer, who calls him out on his Washington Post firing and that he’s suspiciously everywhere they go. At the end of the episode it is revealed that she has a cult tattoo, so she is a supporter or she organizes the whole thing. Also, there is some girl, that works at the meeting place cafe, that is eyeing one of the guys working on the show. When he leaves the set, she stumbles on him and that red car from the show pulls up and kidnaps him. This show has me wondering if the viewers of this show just cannot tell the difference between reality and fiction or if there are subliminal messages sent to the viewers?

Well Jeff it persistent on finding his brother, so he finds some DVD that he pops into his computer that basically puts all his information online and makes him accessible to the cult cyberspace. He gets a call from his brother, who is so mad that he put the dvd in and that he shouldn’t come find him, before the call is interrupted again. Than Billy Grimm (the cult leader) pops up and says, You’re next. What does that even mean? I mean Billy Grimm gives me the chilly willy’s but is he really involved with the crimes being committed outside of the show or is he just an actor? How much potential does this show really have to grasp peoples attention before it gets way too confusing and complicated??

Memorable Quotes

  • Billy: They come because they want to belong. To be part of my unconditional love.
  • Marti/Kelly: He wants me out here tonight. He’s never forgiven me for leaving
  • Billy: You were obsessed with me than and you’re obsessed with me now.
  • Billy: But you have no idea how many followers are out there now.
  • Skye: Its not like any other show. It totally gets under your skin.

Bishop and Barton come from the Marvel Universe and were originally seen in the 2000s in Young Avengers comics.

Hawkeye is certainly not the first live-action MCU show for Disney+, the first was Wandavision, proceeded by The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and its latest release Loki.

The series will have some big shoes to fill, as Loki managed to make it to number six on the Nielsen chart with 731 million minutes viewed, making it the best MCU release for Disney+.

MCU live-actions do very well on the streaming platform, as Wandavision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have both secured 28 Emmy nominations.
