Cult- Season 1, Episode 1

You're Next- We saw the pilot of The CW's newest show early on Hulu, and man did we hate it. Here's why:

  • It's boring. It was like some of the longest, dullest episodes of Supernatural, not the good ones.
  • It wastes good actors, like Alaric from TVD and Jo from Supernatural.
  • It's cheesy.
  • We thought it was going to be about a cult or different cults, not a cult based on a TV show about a cult. Is anyone REALLY a fan of the "show-within-a-show" maneuver? It wasn't even that great on 30 Rock, and that was our favorite attempt at it.
  • We've had enough long-running, confusing mysteries with PLL.
  • The characters are bland.
  • The tone isn't very fun or thrilling, and it just feels clumsy.
  • The cult leader is named "Billy Grimm," which is obviously a not-so-subtle dig at Christians because of evangelical leader "Billy Graham." We don't like any religion disrespected, even ones with crazy followers. What religion doesn't have crazy followers? "Real" Christians are nice people and don't judge.
  • Does anyone on this show have a lamp? A flashlight? It seemed like nearly every scene was in a dark room.
  • We didn't enjoy a second. We didn't care. 
  • For that premise, it wasn't clever enough.
Episode grade: D
