In reading some of the comments, I am disturbed (ha, ha really disturbed) that viewers are looking for cohesiveness in their insanity. A horror is story is just that - a story. I really enjoy the new acting talent, and I am in awe of the veterans that this production offers. To me, this type of entertainment is well served by the contiguous stretching of our imaginations. The trick (or treat) is simply to go along with the flow. Enjoy the show - I am.
Everyone around me is seeing something in this show that I can't. I'll admit that the first and second episode of the first season were passable after the first viewing, but it all went downhill from there. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk simply cannot write. I try to overlook all of the stupid, subtly over the top lines but it's impossible. There are just too many haha. Even if I could, they break one of the most important rules in writing television and movie: show, don't tell. Within the first few minutes of the season three premiere, Taissa Farmiga's character, Zoe, says "So, apparently I'm a . Aside from that, the acting is sometimes melodramatic and terrible, yet the actors are ones that I normally enjoy: at least to some of them. The storyline like the show in general is disorganized. Pointless, unnecessary things tended to be piled on and on until I just stopped caring. Sorry to be so harsh. No judgement, watch away ;] I just don't understand.
I liked season 1 a lot and season 2 was just great and so much better... but season 3??? I think I will stop watching. It is so borning and it seems like they really don't know the direction they want to be going to. It is a mix of so many tv shows and nothing innovative or new. I love the actors though and Jessica Lange is still my favorite. But I can't really say that season 3 is interesting - I can't even watch an episode through not doing something else alongside
This season doesnt seems to be as good as season two, neither seems to be made by the same crew. Production seems headed for a much less demanding viewer. Jessica Lange the better by far... (sorry about my english)
I absolutely loved season one. I thought season two was going even better ... until they brought aliens into the mix ... SO DISAPPOINTING. Season three, so far, doesn't seem to be going so bad. There are a couple of things that don't quite seem to fit and I feel like every week they introduce a really important new element for the plot but the next week they forget all about it, which is not great for continuity purposes. All in all, it's not that bad; I just really hope they don't mess it up with some idiotic new idea like they did with season two.
Just registered to contribute on this stunning horror show. I have to admit, without Jessica Lange playing a main character, the show would probably only be half as good. She represents this dark and powerful role. The writing is superb. Personally I enjoyed season 2 the most. Season three has some confusing elements in it, but due to the fact that I`m a huge fan I kind of ignore them. Things happen too fast, but maybe that`s what makes the show so special.
If you want the good old fashioned creeps from a updated telling of a classic American tale of the dark and twisted supernatural, then this show is for you. Season 1 was a the classic haunted house story & Season 3 is doing a great job of telling the Salem Witch gone NOLA story. Season 3, for all it's good intentions, at best and could've been superb if they didn't get distracted and through everything and the kitchen sink at you in their screen play (if you have ADD or are a scatter brain type you'll probably enjoy it . But so far the show as a whole rocks, super enjoying this season and excited to see the future story lines chosen for the next seasons!
But then, with a character based on serial killer and sadist, LaLaurie, what more could be expected? And the gang rape sequence did little to nothing to profile the Madision character. Had to search for any redeeming qualities in this show. The great talents of Lange and Bates just seem wasted.
Season one was pretty average and felt kinda amateuristic but the end was great! Season 2 was amazing! One of the best seasons,amazing!Now looking forward for season 3 for the amazing Kathy Bates!It's fun and definitely something else,a tv show with every season a different story.
Some people like chocolate ice cream. Some people like vanilla ice cream. Then there are people who like the bacon-and-eggs-with-a-side-of-green-tea ice cream. This show, like the killer ice cream from Hades, isn't for everybody. Don't like it? Don't watch it. Quit wasting your time posting about something you don't like and go do something you DO.
This show is original, so original. The plot lines are fantastic and the show itself has a very unique feel to it. The acting is pretty good too and the directing is outstanding. If you like horror you have to watch this show and if you are not a fan (like me) at least give the first episode a try.
I watched the first season only. Simply put nothing of it makes any sense. It sets out to do so but then just degenerates into being an attention grabber. Is JJ Abrams' mystery box at work here? Who knows :(
Good in every department though other then writing (because it doesn's sustain a whole season!) and music. To bad. Now anybody interested in true horror, here you go: Sinister (2012) with Ethan Hawke
I just started the first season. Horror is so not my thing but somehow this is a show I like to watch. Even though I can only watch it when it's not dark outside so I don't freak out too much. I actually didn't think this show was supposed to be scary but something in the show really captures you and makes you want more.
The actors are amazing, the story is well written. You never know what's going to happen next and actually I have no idea what (or who) is the evil. Everytime I think I'm on to something I find myself confused again.
Hard to really give a proper rating since I haven't seen even the whole first season but this is for now. The only down side is that I'm so scared all the time I don't know if it's a good thing...
American Horror story is one of m favorite shows on television or not. It is about number three.
Here are my multiple reviews:
American Horror Story: Murder House (Season 1) Review:
This was very suspenseful and I absolutely loved Tate this season. He was deranged but in a way that you could usually see the sence behind the things he does. The star-crossed lovers story between him and Violet was quite interesting and it had a satisfying yet it was also an ending that made me wonder what was going to happen next. The season ended in such a way that made me think "Wow, I can't wait until Season But then they never continued, leaving that ending to hang on a cliff for the rest of time. 9.5/10.
American Horror Story: Asylum (Season 2) Review:
This season was absolutely amazing, it ended in a way that I was satisfied (yet also had my mouth wide-open into the first five minutes of the replay of the episode). I was happy from the begining because this season was psychological horror, my favorite form of horror. In the begining, I was sceptical because they were doing stuff with "aliens", but I eventually ended up loving that story. Evan Peters managed to make his character my favorite this season (Kit) as well, allllthough his character now is almost completely different from Tate in season 1. My least favorite episode was still amazing, my only problem was that it gave me a headache in the middle of the episode. This season was amazing. At a point in the middle f the season, a twist came that was the most unexpected thing that could have happened at that point. 10/10.
AHS is one of the best shows on at the moment with great acting, direction, plot twists and mystery. It excels in all facets of horror unlike other shows in the Genre as its creepy and scares the crap out of me, lots of blood gore and macabre humour.
The 1st season was amazing as its unpredictable with so much twists and amazing performances especially from Evan Peters playing the troubled teenager and Jessica Lange.
The 2nd is mind blowing as its more focused and the plot is well scripted unlike the previous season and the attention detail is intriguing.
This is one of the best made shows in a long time. I, personally, am so tired of "in your face" horror; you know, the kind where you can predict exactly what will happen and who it will happen to next. AHS is such a refreshing change, as it brilliantly makes use of the most primal and terrifying horror; pure, undeniable, but overwhelming fear! Just when we think we've figured out what evil is around the next corner, we are thrown a new twist, one we never saw coming, and is even more horrifying than the last. We didn't need to see nonstop blood, guts and gore. We got some, but even more horrific were the abuses we didn't see, but just pushed enough in the right direction to envision them. We certainly were taken on a bumpy ride, one we never expected, yet the greatest horror of all was more psychological, as it left enough for our imaginations to fill in the blanks with our own fears and personal horror!
I absolutely loved season 1. Evan Peters was amazing as Tate. He played the troubled boy perfectly. You felt something wasn't quite right about him, yet he kept you enchanted so you know how Violet can fall for him. The plot was creepy and kept the audience interested, after every episode you needed to know more. I loved watching Jessica Lange and think she played her part brilliantly. I'm excited about the new season. I was totally bummed last year when Murphy said that the Langdon's wouldn't be back. I was planning on boycotting the show, but then I heard Jessica Lange and Evan Peters were going to be back and since they made the first season, I decided to give season 2 a shot. I'm glad I did because the trailers look amazing. Please, Please, Please don't disappoint me AHS!
It was just so sad to just 'find out' thru the characters conversation, that Pepper had died. Don't know if it was the way we found out or just the fact that she had died, without seeing her more. I was somehow drawn to her character....
This is my absolute favorite show on TV. I look forward to it every week. Yes, you have got to pay close attention to catch every little thing, but that is what I love about. I watch each episode twice to make sure that I have not missed anything. I also love how they bring back the same actors in different roles. And Jessica Lange is amazing. The one thing I don't like-I have to wait SOOO long between seasons.
This show is nice. Season 1 was kind of slow in a good way. Season 2 was really good i mean the story and other stuff, when one episode gets over you want more kind of good. All the actors are brilliant in this series. The only problem is i don't find it scary so i give it a 6.
