So I just got a peek at Hulu’s new show The Path, and I have to say I’m super thankful that a friend of mine here has Hulu!
The series is about a Scientology-esque cult based in upstate New York called Meyerism, based on the teachings of Dr. Steven Meyers. The show centers around the marriage of Eddie (Aaron Paul) and Sarah (Michelle Monaghan). After a trip (in more ways than one) Eddie starts having doubts. This leads to friction in his marriage with Sarah who, unlike Eddie, was born into the faith.
Hugh Dancy plays Cal, the shady, definitely too-good-to-be-true, stand-in leader while Dr. Meyers, the group’s real leader, is away writing the final steps in the ladder to the light. Must roll with me here; it’s worth it. I promise. Because the thing is, the show is really about the characters. The dynamics between these relationships, and how the cult plays into it.
I’ve only seen one episode so far, but I’m clam morning for another. This shows has me ready to drink the Kool-Aid.
