So... all it took was 25 minutes to fully screw any progress that they had with this season, right?
I'm kinda bitter because the whole thing was turning great, but after Lily and Sarah were cut on EP5... I knew there would be no closure. Alma was like... fucking tragic. So annoying. I was just hoping someone would hit her with a baseball bat or something. So Kudos for the little actress because she killed it dd.
Ursula\Leslie on the other hand... she doesn't have IT.
Someone takes Leslie away from AHS because all her characters (well, it's not like that different from each other) are terrible. I like her in other series like Faking It, The Good Place or even Love, Victor, but she ruins all the atmosphere in this one.
Tonight's episode just proved to me that Ryan Murphy needs to quit it with the Young Adult stuff...he doesn't do it well. It's always over the top with no nuance.
I loved the 50's parts. I love what they were going for with the Twilight Zone esque story and cinematography, and it was actually intriguing. Those are definitely the parts I will be looking forward to most this season.
The current day parts were lacking. Why do they feel the need to put so many lines about sex (in detail) in the dialogue? And Kaia Gerber is gorgeous, but not a very good actress.
I'm not going to write it off yet, there were some promising elements here for sure and I'm interested in where the story is going.
This half of the season isn't for me, I turned it off 40 minutes in. The black & white stuff felt like it MIGHT be campy fun for a few episodes, but the bits with the teenagers in present-day was awful. Terribly written and awfully cast. I was cringing at how clunky the dialog is - and Kaia Gerber is NOT an actress. I really don't get why the writers have been so determined to take the show in a YA direction the last few years.
I actually didn't mind it. Nothing was scary, it was of course ridiculous, but I found it entertaining. I do wonder why they can't just tell one, focused story. Why are we jumping from past to present? Why the need to cram EVERYTHING in?
I can't help thinking about the seasoned actors like Sarah, Evan and Frances watching that latest episode, and the American Horror Stories season. There's no way they can't have similar opinions as the rest of us do.
