Follow TV Tropes

Following

YMMV / Cult

Go To

For the series:

  • Hilarious In Hindsight: At the end of the pilot episode of Cult's rival show The Following, Big Bad Joe Carrol gives his mission statement; "You know, my first book was... clearly too avant garde. Lost in literati pretense. Now my new story... will play to a much wider audience." On April 4th, 2013, Cult was cancelled due to a perceived lack of viewership, while The Following was renewed for a second season, thus demonstrating the validity of Carrol's belief that a straightforward tale of sex and violence would appeal to a much wider audience than a twisted Mind Screw requiring much more investment. Meta beyond imagination.
