A lot has been said about whether the Cause is code for Scientology. Anderson drew a lot of inspiration from L. Ron Hubbard and the origins of Scientology, but to say that The Master is about Scientology misses the point.
Another reality show has hit the airwaves, "Beverly Hills Nannies." This one takes "real" nannies (is anybody really real on a reality show?) and places them in various situations with various well-to-do BH families.
