I came for Robert Knepper, I stayed for Robert Knepper
Allow me to quote a fellow-reviewer: "...I am a huge fan of Robert Knepper. Since Prison Break, I have tried to find anything with his name in the credits." (kstaylor-829-882972). I "found" "Cult" by pure chance: while going through endless Robert-Knepper-related-videos, I stumbled upon something called "Roger/Kirstie - Do I Wanna Know", and someone in the comments mentioned that it's from a series called "Cult". So, obviously, I started watching it.
I was pleasantly surprised by a few familiar faces. I loved the "show-within-a-show" format. I had a really hard time deciding on the rating because I both love Robert Knepper and both found the whole cult concept to be ridiculous and quite infuriating (cults, religion... I just don't get it). I also found myself thinking that I would rather watch the show-within-the-show, where Billy is the lead character, rather than the "main" show where Jeff is the lead character.
To sum, I'm a bit relieved there's no second season because I would have felt compelled to watch it, but logically it would have been a waste of time. So, I'll just re-watch Prison Break instead.
