    "Hotel" Season finished. My least favorite season so far. No need to say that Bates, O´Hare and Bassett steal the show to Madame le Gaga...I wonder if Ryan Murphy asked Liz Taylor´s heirs for permission to use her name...and her eyeliner. :confused:

    Just watched #8 and got very bored of it all. Especially in the first 20 minutes i could barely keep my eyes open.
    Oh, i want one of those miracle phones they are using, ot at least the battery. Because if i kept filming and using the light all the time, mine would be empty after 5 or 6 hours. lol

    .... :D:D:D I was kinda thinking that myself... o_O

    I've watched all the AHS Seasons except, "Hotel". I've really enjoyed them all.

    As for this "Roanoke Nightmare".... I can't say I've enjoyed it. It was all kind of okay at first but by episode 9, I'd had enough. I found myself fast-forwarding through Ep.9 & 10 as I really couldn't be arsed with all the screaming an' setting characters alight.... :confused:

    Maybe it's just me but all this show within a show (reality or otherwise)....?? Can't be fudged with it.... :oops:

    I long for Kathy Bates just to have a normal accent, for once.

    Love Ms. Paulson, Mr. Peters & Ms. Bassett but really miss Ms. Lange and Ms. Conroy. :(

    I felt it got too repetitive and drawn out. I didn't mind the concept at all--including the documentary/reality angle. It was an interesting, new direction for the show to go. But by the end it just felt like every episode was a new set of characters coming to the house and getting slaughtered. Why would people still be going to the house after all the murders that had happened there? I realize people are stupid, but really?

    Yes, exactly. J.:cool:

    I've always thought that Seasons 1 and 4 were a touch drawn out too.

    I only watched the first two episodes of the circus one. I didn't finish the witches season either, I don't think.

    Yes and nothing has topped season 2 for me.

    Yes.... it's the best so far, I think.

    S3 is really good. You should try and finish it J.:cool: when you get the chance.

    I finally finished this season. I was getting tired of the screaming. The season was ok but not all that great. My favourites were Evan Peters, Adina Elizabeth Porter, Angela Bassett, and Lily Rabe roles. I was not really impressed with Lady Gaga and Kathy Bates roles this season.

    We finished it the other night and I'm glad to be done with this one. It started off with so much promise and I loved the idea of the real victims discussing it while we watched a reenactment of the story, I even liked the change in direction, but that turned out to be a big problem when it dominated the last 4 episodes.

    Two many new characters and then just a dash of our favourite actors (Bates, Peters, Conroy and O'Hare) the only saving grace in the finale was seeing Lana Winters again.

    I still STILL don't understand the hype of Season 2. Maybe I need to keep trying. I loved 1 and absolutely LOVED 4 - on 5 now, skipped 3 after a few episodes and am finding 5 good but not AS GOOD as I hoped.

    I loved S2 especially because of the talents of James Cromwell and Lily Rabe. Found that season very disturbing and fascinating. :)
