Cult- You’re Next (1×01)

Published

“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: I don’t prey on anyone. I seek out no one.
  • 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.

    Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’

    Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for 'Yellowstone' Prequel '1932'

     

    Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.

    The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter

    The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons. 

    The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project. 

    It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes. 

    Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

    Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that. 

    News of the new prequel first broke in February. 

    “Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”

    It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.

    All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

    ‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last

    Published

    QUIZ: Which 'Legacies' Character Are You?

    It’s the end of a franchise on The CW. 

    The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. 

    The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict. 

    Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June. 

    ‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Charmed’ Among Shows Canceled by The CW

    And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series. 

    Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling. 

    The series will come to an end with its fourth season. 

    The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!

    Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half. 

    It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

    Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
