I'm going to start with season 4 tonight and I'm very excited about it.
I'm optimistic they will return in the second episode
I gave up on that season, I just couldn't get in to it.
Maybe after you've watched it, I might try again.
What was it that you didn't like? I've only watched the first 4 episodes, but I find it deliciously despairing, evil and disgusting.
It´s the "Freak Show" one, isn´t it? Overall it´s the season I ended up liking more, in a very twisted way. You kind of wish it was a long-running miniseries, not part of an anthology. I really feared it would be weak because I also loved "Carnivàle" and thought they couldn´t outdo that, but their styles are totally different...differently evil. There will be a crossover (won´t spoil it if you didn´t see it yet) that will melt your heart...
Carnivale was much better of course. AHS is just a delightful, over-the-top mess and that's how I feel about every season.
I can't remember.
I watched the first one and had kittens when Lange took on Life on Mars? but then it just stopped..
I'm very tempted now.
Just watched it, and it was amazing! So sad and so wicked...the evil just never stops!
I'm going to watch the last 3 episodes now.
Going to try and keep the stories to their own threads.
I may give this season a go very soon. I don't know why I decided not to watch it originally. Maybe because I didn't really love Coven.
You know what...?
I think this was partly the reason I quit FREAK SHOW. I was so disappointed with COVEN that it controlled me when I started this one.
I loved HOTEL and I think the new one has started really strong.
Oops, sorry for hijacking the season 6 thread
Just finished S4 (including the extras, and I usually never watch those) and all I can say is that this is my favourite AHS story so far.
It was vile and shocking but there were also some heartrending scenes - oh, and the sets and designs are stunning.
Jessica Lange's role as the narcissistic, embittered diva-bitch Elsa Mars isn't very different from the other roles but it certainly is the most entertaining.
Then I would rate the seasons as:
I just watched episode one. Not really sure what I think yet, it hasn't grabbed me yet. Could I be so used to the cast and knowing to expect horror that I'm a little numb to it?
Which have you seen so far?
Freak Show (first three episodes)
I honestly think Freak Show is really slow and dull.
Are you planning to do HOTEL ?
God willing I have the strength to finish Freak Show.
LOL. Pause that one and head into HOTEL.
Then there's the new one which had a great start.
Of course, I want to see everything.
Hotel is just so good! Lots of great music as well!
Including a variation of my all time favourite "Nights in white satin".
