Misery loves company
31 March 2016 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

Call me a "want to believe" in this new cult themed series but after just watching the pilot episode I can't say that I was impressed. The series two star anchors are the husband and wife team of Eddie Lane (Aaron Paul Emmy winning supporting actor for Breaking Bad) and his wife Sarah Lane (Michelle Monaghan) who are two twenty something senior leaders of a cult like church called Meiyerism. Eddie has just returned from a religious retreat from Peru where their church leader is in the process of climbing the last three rungs of the church leader's self-appointed storybook Meiyerism church ladder.

There is a third wheel on this bicycle of faith whose name is Cal Robertson (Hugh Dancy who played the very troubled Will Graham in Hannibal) who is perfect for his part as the sheep herder who just happens to still be in love with Sarah Lane even though he knows that Sarah has married Eddie. Sarah makes it clear to Eddie that she alone had chosen Eddie, and so Eddie asks the obvious question of Sarah, "Do you mean you chose me over Cal?"

So we have these three twenty something year olds in charge of this huge compound which has a locked front gate and security guard to protect their faithful from outsiders, or is the locked gate to keep the herd of followers from getting out?

The main characters all seem to be harboring secrets which I assume will be divulged over the first five scheduled episodes. I am not a fan of the chosen suspenseful themed music that is piped in continuously in an effort to build suspense and I hope that in future episodes this attempt at suspenseful music will become less noticeable and the storyline more palatable. Time will tell if The Path will continue or come to a dead end after the first five spring episodes have aired. I give the pilot episode a 6 out of 10 rating for trying hard to convince a younger audience to follow The Path.
