The Underground Bunker's 2017 Scientology year-in-review starts today! - 2017-12-21
There have been plenty of previous years when Scientology was exposed by major media, from the British press of the 1960s, to the Snow White years with 60 Minutes and Reader's Digest, to Time magazine and the Los Angeles Times in the 1990s, to the Tampa Bay Times in the 2000s, and even more recently with HBO's massively successful Alex Gibney film Going Clear in 2015.
But it was this year that Leah Remini made Scientology's controversies and abuses a weekly, national, and hugely watched obsession on television in the United States and increasingly around the rest of the world. We've simply never experienced anything like it.
