We’re a bit disappointed in “Cult” so far, but since we’ve been a fan of Robert Knepper since his “Carnivale” days, we’re holding out hope that things will improve so we can keep seeing him on a weekly basis.
If you concur, here’s everything you need to know about what’s coming up on the show over the next four weeks:
