I watched two and a half episodes of Freak Show and threw in the towel. And I guess months from now I'll be checking out Hotel as you all are digging into season 6 (are they planning a season 6?)

 

Not into the freak show setting?  I only saw random bits of it, myself, and it was all over the place.

It's just... boring. The freaks are just props for the regular cast members to act around. And the characters played by the regular cast are boring, they all seem so depressed, the show feels depressing, and there's so much stabbing.  It's not even interesting enough to stick around and find out what the deal is with the scary clown.

Well wasn't THAT JUST SHIT. 

 

 

Hotel isn't off to a good start. It's not even the good kind of bad.

I wouldn't take issue with vampires being included, per se, but more with there not really being anyone to root for on the show.  Say, a genuine emotional point-of-entry for all the weirdness.  That said, I'm considering giving the show more of a look (than just the premiere and a bit of the second episode), because that white room with the TVs (with old video games on them) and candy is sort of visually intriguing.

I like a lot of the visuals in this season, and I'm going to keep watching for Gaga, but mostly I'm like "Meh." Did they have to make the serial killer character such an obvious HH Holmes clone? I thought that was super corny.

And the stories don't demand a lot of heavy-lifting from Gaga, as an actress.  She's just needs to be weird, cool and stylish, which is pretty much the primary appeal of the series, or at least this season, anyways (from the looks of it).

I keep starting to watch the second episode of this season On Demand, and quickly grow bored.  I just can't begin to give a fuck about any of these people, especially Sarah Paulson's drug addict character, who was clearly intended for Jessica Lange before she took a year off.

This last episode...I'm losing interest. I'm a huge serial killer buff but I was bored by the dinner scene. Lily Rabe was a pretty okay Aileen Wuornos I guess...but what was the point of this scene? It's so convoluted. Mehhhhh.

 

And how was Ted Bundy not invited to that shindig?

Season 4 Hotel is coming up on Netflix this Tuesday. From the looks of the comments up there ^^, I get the impression I might not get any further into it than I did the Freak Show season.

I bought all the seasons. I started with freaks because my underwear are browning. Jessica doing Bowie was OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD FANFUCKINGTASTIC!!!!

NEXT coven. Great..

Then 1. Just OK.

Then assylum. Fucking great.

I haven't seen 5. .

Although they are a tad formulaic I loved them all. Jessica is a god.

I haven't REALLY enjoyed anything since the first 2 seasons. With that being sad, I'm enjoying the current season so far. A lot more than the past few seasons.

This season reminds me a lot of Season one (which I loved), mainly because as of right now, it's centered around this haunted house.

 

I am enjoying seeing the crazy, killing nurses.  They are bat shit crazy!

So I watched episode one of Hotel last night, with all its bloody chewing, and then went to bed and was kept awake all night by a squirrel or some other critter chewing in the ceiling over my bed.  I think I'm not going to watch anymore of this season.

What's all this chatter about a "secret" AHS season?  Confused...

After a questionable first episode, I ended up really enjoying Hotel. The vampires were inexplicably sloppy and Angela Basset's version of campy acting is horrendous compared to Jessica Lange's (definitely missed her in this season, but there really wasn't a part for her), but there were so many good things to make up for it. Most of the characters and storylines ended up being very engaging, Lady Gaga was quite impressive, and it was a treat to see Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters playing against their usual types. 

Though there never really was a satisfying explanation of where that thing with the corkscrew strap-on came from. Supposedly Sally "summoned" it, but what was it, where did she summon it from, and how? Everything else that manifested inside the hotel was explained so neatly, but not that.
