At San Diego Comic Con the WB showed off a new show called Cult. Cult is a show that is fresh and is something new. The show is based on crazy fans of a show. While watching the show, you will see clips from the show and you will see the fans in the real world. When I first read about it, I thought it would be confusing but I was wrong.
Cult is a show with-in a show. There’s the show that reminds me of Big Love, that follows a leader of a group. Is he dangerous? He will tell you no but he has his members do his dirty work. And then there’s the fans of the show. We see them meeting up at cafes to discuss the show to even playing role play.
The show shows us a brother who is way deep into the show. And believes he is being followed. His brother Jeff does not believe him, until he actually disappears. This is where we see the fans have taken the show to another level. There’s people with tattoos and people who dress like the charterers from the show.
The show has a lot of potential but I have mixed feelings about it. They will be a lot of social media to go with the show. I am wondering if viewers are willing to sit down and watch a show about how crazy fans can be about a show.
