Amazing show! What an eye opener into the church of Scientology this is. Honestly, I wouldn't even it call it a church. It's more of a brainwashing cult than anything.... and the amount of money they make members spend on merchandise is unbelievable!!

Finally a great, professional show that's shows partially how dangerous this cult is! It's not a church and never was. Luckily there are countries like Germany that don't recognize this club as a church and they have to pay taxes. Also they are under constant surveillance by the state authorities! (maybe the Germans DID learn something from their own history) I live in Switzerland - they tried to setup camp here 25 years ago, but today they are mostly gone! Also they never got the church status. I hope there will be a second season!

I've just finished watching the penultimate episode of season 2, and highly recommend this series to anyone considering Scientology, intrigued by the celebrities who promote Scientology or those caught in the the realization that they need to escape Scientology and need to know there is support for them when they have to leave everything behind to escape with their lives (check out the support Facebook groups for this show). Excellent series, well researched, riveting first hand testimonies, important work. And, I have to say, Leah Remini is one tenacious pit bull created for this purpose (the best of New York spit and fire). Good on her! I give this series an 8 (important) out of 10.

This show was amazing and I feel like it needs a Season 4 as there is still so much that these two amazing people being Leah Remini and Mike Rinder, need to explore as I am interested to find out more about the international side of this. Anyway, this show is amazing as Going Clear started my fascination with Scientology but this show truly shows you every single arm of this cult, both hosts have been in different parts of this organisation makes the show even better as they are able to explain every aspect of the cult. Aftermath needs to be on Netflix or something more accessible in the UK as it was super difficult to track every episode down, but it was worth it as this show explains and exposes so much not only in this cult but also exposes some of the issues in other bona fide religions. Thank you for this show and I urge everyone to watch it as it really is an eye-opening, I really hope they do one day come back for the 4th season and I hope this show does help countries and governments learn how to deal with this organisation. Please ignore negative reviews on IMDB as after you watch this, you will understand the extent this organisation will go to stop people seeing the truth.
