American Horror Story

  1. I love Murder House and Coven, but I don't really think of them as good TV, so I'm not too worried about my memories of either being tainted. I need to rewatch those first three seasons, actually. Don't think I'll be doing the same for the rest of the show, though. Maybe the campier episodes of Roanoke if I need a laugh.
     
  2. I recently re-watched Murder House and I forgot just how good and exciting it was; it burned through horror tropes gleefully and with novelty without losing sight of setting or character.

    And I forgot how mournful and "dark" it was -- in terms of characters in despair making terrible choices that have felt repercussions, rather than just pure violence -- while still managing to weave in hope that can be strove for, that it's never too late to break free from cycles of behaviour that seem to trap; the writers not giving over completely to cynicism, and poking fun out of modern culture as beyond salvation.

    Moira crying helplessly as her grave is locked away forever under the construction of the new gazebo; Violet trying to escape the house by suicide only to awaken in the arms of a sobbing, abusive Tate and she herself breaking down in despair; the ghosts unable to find any peace on the one night they are allowed to walk free ect. ect.

    I wouldn't be opposed to a crossover as there is a deep bench of good characters and established mythology over the two seasons to work from, we shall see.

  3. Mess of a season. For me the last good season was Hotel. It's been a downfall since then.

  5. So I finally watched the last two episodes over the last two days. It had taken me a while as I'd found this season such a chore to get through. It truly was trash! The only moment I really found interesting was the Charles Manson flashback. It only really clicked then that that's what they were trying to do with Cult, but it really failed on all aspects. But having recently read a lot about Charles Manson it was interesting to see some of it on screen.

  6. So season 8 will be set in the future ("Not space" / "Still topical"), and season 9 will be the Murder House / Coven crossover season.

    Murphy went on to divulge that Season 9 could be the Murder House/Coven crossover he previously hinted at. “We’re working on it, but that’s not going to be [Season 8],” he said. “That will probably be the one after that. We’ve already met about it and outlined it. But it won’t be next because some of the [cast members] are not available.”

    “It’s a character from season 1 that will be thrust into the world that you are left with at the end of Coven, which is sort of like the male/female/witch academy,” Murphy says of the future season of American Horror Story. “And then all of those characters will intertwine, which is confusing because some of them are from seasons 1 and 3. Like, Sarah Paulson will probably be playing 18 characters.”

  7. OK but if they are going to revisit Murder House and not have it be about Constance raising her demon grandchild then WHAT is even the point?

  8. They just can't do a Murder House revisit without Jessica Lange - I suppose by Season 9 she will have been away for long enough that she may want to return.
     
  9. Season 8 being in the 'future' just makes me feel he's going to rip off Black Mirror type technology.
     
  10. I wonder what is going to happen with this show now that Murphy is moving to Netflix.
     
  11. His current productions stay where they are, just like Shonda's did when she left ABC for Netflix.
     
  12. Just finished Cult...
     
  13. American Horror Story: Radioactive has been trademarked.
     
  14. Starring Sarah Paulson as Marina Diamandis.
     
  15. Rita Ora as leading lady.
     
  16. it's not the worst season.... its like the second worse.

  20. Just finished Roanoke and I surprisingly loved (I gave up on hope of "good TV" from AHS many years ago and now "compulsively garish" is all I demand)

    My definitive ranking...

    1) Asylum
    2) Hotel
    3) Murder House

    4) Coven

    5) Roanoke





    666) Freakshow
