I agree this season is off to a good start.

Number one, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are actually WRITING for the show again. They haven't written for this show in years.

The other thing is that Evan Peters is a producer and Sarah Paulson is an Executive Producer this season.

I think having the actors as producers is a very good thing. Those two have the most experience with this show, and they have a good sense of what does and doesn't work.

Evan Peters has lost a lot of weight.

Evan and Francis have great voices.

I loved their rendition of "Islands in the Stream."

Okay, so two questions:

1. Why do some people turn into vampire mega talents, and some turn into the grunting monsters roaming the streets?

2. Speaking of roaming the streets, don't the townspeople notice these creepy monster killers just wandering around eating people and animals in the middle of the day? And where ARE the townspeople?

R34 - I think the vampire creatures will probably be some kind of sea vampires that come around seasonally. They already mentioned the pills were created by Dr. Something, so they’re probably made from the blood of the creatures. There’s something to the red lights and the constant mention of Lyme disease, though. Not sure what. There seems to be all kinds of references here - Rosemary’s Baby, The Shining, 30 Days of Night, probably Mother. I don’t know if that’s intentional, or if we expect it, so consciously piece that together on our own.

I'm really pissed off about the scheduling of this - I assumed that as they did in previous seasons of AHS, it would be available in the UK the day after it shows in the US, but I found out today it's going to be on Disney+ Star and not until sometime in October.

So we have to wait about 6 weeks, and this season is split into two stories so by the time we get the first episode, the first story will have already concluded and I will no doubt have seen spoilers online.

Fucking annoying!

Better than last season at this point but the series doesn't go off the rails until the last couple of episodes. Maybe, just once, this one will avoid it but I doubt it.

At least they spent a bit of time trying to explain why this family wouldn't leave since it makes zero sense that they'd stay after the first episode.

This is the first season in a very long time that I was actually scared!

The vampires are creepy. Even during the day time.

And having them jump out at you out of nowhere, is always a good scare tactic.

Another creepy element is the emptiness of the town. The empty streets, the empty grocery store, the empty beach.

The only place that had people in it, was the dive bar with all the gay patrons! Rofl.

R99, Frances is 68.

Also This show already did vampirism in American Horror Story: Hotel. They also didn't have teeth there so they used instruments to cut people open. However, that was a virus. This one so far is a pill that either enhances your creativity with the trade-off being a thirst for blood or if you're not naturally talented it turns you into a monster.

[quote]Ryan Murphy, for the most part, is a producer. People come to him to pitch him ideas and, when he likes the idea, he agrees to produce it while the creator gets to be the showrunner and a co-creator credit title next to Ryan's name.

This is true but there are cases where he keeps his hands off of the product (Boys in the Band and Halston) and cases where he puts them all over the product. Sometimes he only comes in at the start and the finish or one or the other.

With American Horror Stories he wrote "Rubber(wo)Man Part One" with Brad Falchuk. Part two was written by Brad Falchuk. The finale was written by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk.

With American Horror Story Season 10 the first two episodes we just saw were written by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. The next two were written by Brad Fulchuk. He'll probably come back and co-write or write the finale.

He usually gets involved with the American Horror Story franchise if anything.

Vampires again? Harry's experience with the pills practically mirrors Tristan (also Wittrock) shortly after he was turned in Hotel. Austin and Sarah/Belle are somewhat rehashes of Donovan and The Countess. Tuberculosis Karen is practically Hypodermic Sally's twin. Billie is playing the same exact character she played in Cult. Macaulay Culkin is doing a variation of his performance of Michael Alig from Party Monster and Leslie Grossman is back and she doesn't even have the range (thank you, Little Britain).

The acting is good for the most part. It's the blatant recycling of past storylines and elements from previous seasons that's annoying and frustrating. I know they've done this several times before but this time they've dialed it up the rehashing to ten.

Why do the pills wear off over time if you have talent, but never seem to wear off if your are untalented? The flop vampires appear to be stuck forever in a zombie state. That seems like a major plot hole to me.

He has toned it way down in general in the past few years.

You will never have a season like "American Horror Story: Hotel" ever again.

R129 and that is so sad.

by Anonymousreply 130August 31, 2021 4:56 PM

R129, I think some of that has to do with people claiming he exploited the actors in Hotel (just using it as his "sex" fantasy) and also because AHS's audience includes the teens, even more so now than before. Except for Dennis, they all showed their asses. Even the guest stars did.

Ratched had some nudity from Finn Wittrock. The Boys in the Band had that "shower" scene but that mimicked the revival play, which nearly completely remade the original movie where that was also there + plus a couple of other quick scenes but he mostly stayed out of that production.

He's never reached Hotel or even The Normal Heart levels again.

R138, and they didn't show anything there. Like maybe blurry corner ass. Matthew Morrison jumped into a lake. That's it.

R137, all the men were fitted for prosthetics. They also said the script was originally a lot sexier/raunchier. Then Ryan backed out at the last minute and we got pubes from one of the main actors, and a couple of very, brief ass flashes where it was clear they went out of the way to not focus on any of it.

We're half way through part 1, and I think I'm in for the rest of it.

I'm loving this season. Nothing too overly complicated. It's just a straight forward story.

Clearly, it's a metaphor for drug use, getting kids hooked on drugs, getting your friends and family involved, drug deals gone bad, murder, etc. It's truly what being on drugs is like. The whole lifestyle.

Even the vampire monster is a metaphor for a drug addict, because drugs literally suck the life out of people.

The characters, though, are what make the story interesting. And I'm loving the characters.

I am especially enamored with Macaulay Culkin. His character is very endearing. Plus, he's still attractive.

Hard to believe there are only three episodes left in part one, but I think this is a great format.

Instead of dragging out the story, it seems to be humming along nicely.

Lily Rabe is obsessed with the danger of Lyme disease. She even mentions that it can cause serious nervous system damage. Lyme is an infectious disease caused by the bite of a tick, and the show is about vampires who bite...

Meanwhile, I believed from the time the first teasers were shown that the series would probably be set around Montauk, New York, because of the Montauk monsters that wash ashore, and because that is located near the Plum Island government biological research center where (this is history, not conspiracy theory) a German Nazi scientist named Erik Traub was brought over after WWII to research bioweapons. When he was in Germany, he proposed using ticks as a means of spreading a biological weapon that would make people so sick they'd be incapacitated but not die. (The Nazis said no, that's a bad idea; he was nevertheless imported by the US NIH to condict research here.) He has been accused of (this is conspiracy theory, not documented history) engineering Lyme disease as a bioweapon in Plum Island, with the disease escaping the lab via infected ticks that may have been carried away on birds and then spread throughout the region. Old Lyme, Connecticut, where Lyme was first discovered, is close to Plum Island.

American Horror Story always plays on American urban legends, and so I fully suspect these events will come into play: Lyme, biological warfare, a government research facility probably have something to do with the vampires and the black pills. Just a guess.

Yes, someone upthread mentioned that there are six episodes total in part one, called "Red Tide."

Then part two will be called "Death Valley." That's why this season is called Double Feature.

From Wiki:

[quote] On March 19, 2021, Murphy revealed the seasons's title to be Double Feature; it will encompass two different stories, "one by the sea, one by the sand." Later, on Instagram, Murphy referred to "Double Feature" as "Two seasons for the fans airing in one calendar year... So double the viewing pleasure. One set by the sea. A second by the sand.

[quote] On July 27, 2021, the first official teaser was released on social media, confirming the titles of the two parts as Red Tide and Death Valley, respectively. Red Tide will span over the first six episodes and Death Valley over the last four episodes.

1. It did serve a purpose, because it followed with the already established means of feeding set in episode one. They find druggies/criminals selling shit online, and then use them for food. In this case, Finn was looking for blood for himself and his daughter.

2. We got to to envision Finn having hot gay sex, without him actually having hot gay sex.

It's fucking storytelling! That's why it's called American Horror STORY.

This show is so little like AHS both storywise and cinematographywise. Good in the first case, not great in the second.

I like that there is an actual coherent narrative and not just a montage of gross-out/scare scenes, and not a lot of camp nonsense. That's all good.

Still, I can't say the writing is very good. Episode three has some super clunky dialogue with the agent telling Culkin he's a meth head prostitute, etc. For someone who reads a lot of screenplays, she didn't get the note about showing and not telling. Everything that comes out of her mouth is exposition.

I agree that her character is too big for this small story. The setting of a small, shabby house in an abandoned beach town should be great for horror, but this loud woman clattering through and being too smart and figuring out the bizarre magical secret in a day is like...what? Why did that have to happen? It was pretty good up to that point...which could be Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk's corporate motto: "It was pretty good until episode three."

Finally, I was wondering when the old vampire lady threatened to kill the daughter if that is supposed to bother me. It doesn't. I don't really care what happens to any character. I haven't watched this show for so long that I forgot the 'story' is like watching playing pieces moved around and not like watching fiction with characters you invest in.

The show emphasizes two things about the wife: She's a wannabe creative person (and so she should end up being a street feeder) and she is obsessively worried about Lyme disease. Those have to come into play.

The poster shows the vampire creature underwater so I guess the next three episodes are going to need to submerge us. If this is about sea monsters, it's been curiously dry so far. Some blood did wash into the water when Culkin killed the guy. Maybe the sea critters drive people to kill so they can get some blood by the beach? 🤷🏻‍♂️

I like this season better than many AHS series but it's still basically a messy Chillr show with better actors.

As soon as she started speaking, I said to myself, "There's the typical Ryan Murphy character." Over the top and weirdly out of place. She said "hip" stuff and is bitchy. I can see him twirling his mustache while approving her dialogue. I'm happy he's using Leslie again but she worked better in Popular and AHS: Apocalypse as "Coco" the witch who can tell when "things are dangerous." Her being comedic here just kind of throws the whole thing off in a way. I didn't get her in 1984 but I thought that whole thing was a mess.

He always writes her the same as well.

Again, Lily Rabe is practically screaming LYME DISEASE, she said it causes neurological problems, and the cop asked the annoying violin girl if she has a bloodborne disease. I don't know how it will connect with the pill, but there has to be some kind of Lyme-related infectious disease in this plot. Rabe's character also mentioned rabies—rabies and Lyme were her fears when she caught her daughter sucking on a dead animal.

In reality, Lyme isn't bloodborne because it's too sensitive to high concentrations of oxygen and so it lives in anaerobic tissue, fatty neurological tissue, etc., but I wouldn't expect the writers to know that.

There is a malaria-like parasite called Babesia that is spread by both ticks and blood transfusions, and it invades red blood cells and depletes them of oxygen.

Anyway, the Lyme fear thing can't not play a role.

But there's too much going on between the magic pill, the artistic talent, the wacky writers, the asshole agent and the street vampires who evidently will turn out to be underwater things somehow unless the poster has nothing to do with the show.

I think the agent serves quite effectively as a turning point in the story. She disrupts "a small, shabby house in an abandoned beach town", as described by the posters upthread.

With a loud, clattering, bitchy new character, the peaceful community of those vampires will be gradually shattered. It calls forth a turning point that should excite the story a bit.

That's what I was thinking too.

When she and Mickey were talking about taking the pill, the last thing she said was, "I won't do it." But we all know she did it.

Then she was absent from the episode this week.

I have a feeling she will return at the end as a successful artist. It was kind of obvious.

Also, from the previews for next week's episode, it looks like Leslie Grossman takes the pill and becomes a zombie vamp. Lol. Which makes sense, because she's a total hack.

[quote] Leslie Grossman Reveals What Surprised Her Most About AHS Co-Star Macaulay Culkin

Ever since Ryan Murphy posted a picture of Leslie Grossman and Macaulay Culkin on set for American Horror Story season 10, we knew we needed more information about this on-screen pairing.

Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long for these two to share a scene, as the Sept. 1 episode brought together Ursula (Grossman), a power hungry agent, and Mickey (Culkin), a local drug addict with promise as a writer, for the first time. The episode also indicated that these two will share many more moments together, which explains why Grossman had nothing but gush-worthy things to say about her new co-star.

"I want to say that it was an absolute joy to work with Macaulay," Grossman, who has appeared on AHS since 2017, exclusively said to E! News. "And I didn't know him, I hadn't met him, we had a friend in common. We're both friends with Kat Dennings, and, when she first found out that he was going to be on the show, she immediately texted me and was like, 'He is an angel from heaven, you're going to love him.'"

Although Grossman had a good opinion of the AHS newbie heading into the new season, she did note that there were a couple unexpected things about the Home Alone actor. "What surprised me the most about him was his total vulnerability," she continued. "And he is not somebody who has some hardened exterior, or is super protective of themselves. He absolutely does not take himself too seriously. He's incredibly self aware, and has a really good perspective on who he is and what his past is, and the baggage that he brings with that."

Because of this, Grossman revealed that her scenes with Culkin are some of her favorite AHS moments to date, adding, "I just, I don't have enough good things to say about him."

Per Grossman, even though Culkin is "not super interested in acting" anymore, it's clearly still second nature to the 41-year-old star. "This is where he's grown up," she shared. "This is like homecoming for him, you know, in a way that—I didn't start out until I was in my 20s. So he has grown up on sets, and you really feel that."

Murphy stunned fans in February 2020 when he announced that Culkin, who had taken a step back from the limelight following his child star days, would have a starring role in season 10, later named American Horror Story: Double Feature. Apparently, the TV legend promised Culkin that his character would have "crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates," who was replaced by Frances Conroy.

R268 It's stated in the show that these talented vampires only spend winter in Provincetown hunting for blood to create their masterpiece. Simply because winter is when the area is rather empty and deserted. When summer rolls around, they just take it as a break from work and enjoy holidays.

The last season I watched was Apocalypse, which also was basically a double feature: the end-of-world fiest half and then the battle of Satan's prettyboy son versus the witches.

In that season, the son of Satan brought on the apocalypse. He was all powerful, defeated everyone with his indominable powers...until someone went back in time and ran him over with a Jeep.

So, like, don't invest too much thought into figuring out how this season will resolve. Yes, Lily Rabe's character's interior design talentlessness and her baby will have to play a role, but don't expect things to work out in a way that's reasonable within the rules of the story. It's perfectly possible that in the last episode, a seal will crawl out of the water, turn into Herbie the Love Bug and run down all the vampires just as the first gay cruise arrives. This series is the realization of the "throw shit at the wall and see what sticks" process.

Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson are the only smart ones in the entire AHS universe. Francis Conroy has also been pretty regular, but I think she missed a few seasons.

They are the only one who stuck with it the whole way through, and have really benefited from it, as working actors.

Not only has Evan been regularly employed for the last ten years, but it has kept his profile high and allowed him to branch out into other acting jobs in his spare time. Same for Paulson.

Others from the early years of AHS seem to think that they were "better than" the series, and didn't want to be pigeon-holed into one genre, or one series.

But none of them have really been successful.

Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga, Zach Quinto, and the others. You don't even hear their names any more.

It's one of the reasons I like Evan. Loyalty is a rare thing in Hollywood, and he has been loyal to Murphy and AHS.

I dunno, I can't help thinking of most of Murphy's staple actors as a community theatre troupe because of the shoddy material. "Stew's....the stew?!!" isn't really the kind of line that can be performed convincingly and so I don't blame them, but seeing the same players in AHS and other D-level TV series by Murphy has made me think they are very limited. I was really shocked to see Even Peters turn in such a strong and mature performance in Mare of Easttown because I had only ever seen him on AHS and no AHS role ever gave me an inkling he could do what he did on Mare, which is to melt into a role.

Evan might never have had the chance to be on Mare of Easttown, had it not been for his role on AHS.

It's all about the visibility. And Evan has been clearly visible by Hollywood, for the past 10 years.

I had had a crush on McDermott since I saw a dumb romantic comedy with him and Sarah Jessica Parker as a teenager, and he got a lot better with age up to 50. Jeanne Tripplehorn was also in it. Where did she disappear to? I always loved her and she was great in Big Love, with such a weird energy. I bet she could do some interesting things in American Horror Story.

Connie Britton is successful. She's played a lead or primary character in many TV shows and as far as I've ever heard has gotten pretty much universal acclaim. She also has been in major motion pictures including Promising Young Woman and Bombshell. I see her as a Nicole Kidman-like actress whose roots are in TV instead of movies. She plays in mostly high-quality projects and she is always noted as one of the best among her casts, from Friday Night Lights and Nashville to American Horror Story and The White Lotus. She wasn't the lead at all in The White Lotus because it's an ensemble story, yet she somehow stood out as the heavyweight actor. Coolidge amused as always and so on but I think Britton kind of dominated every scene she was in with her presence.

It's weird to suggest she is a failure because she opted out of becoming a regular in a regularly poorly written basic cable horror show.

Connie Britton wasn't allowed to do AHS when she started doing Nashville thanks to her contract. Gabourey Sidibe had to get special permission from Fox, since she was a regular on Empire, to do more than one episode after her last regular season (Coven) ended. Networks are protective like that. Connie returned and did an appearance on AHS when her show ended. However, she was never lacking for work or name recognition because she was a lead on the other damn show.

In addition to Dylan McDermott being the lead on another show (and you forgetting he did Ryan Murphy's "Hollywood" and has appeared in AHS a couple of times since his original seasons), he has been on series after series since he departed AHS.

Furthermore, people like Michael Chiklis, Chloe Sevigny, Zachary Quinto and Wes Bentley said while they would love to work with Ryan again they wouldn't go back and do THAT show. (Quinto just worked with him on the Boys in the Band play and film.)

It's really smart of everyone to work outside of Ryan Murphy because sometimes they get much better roles than how he'd ever see them.

That actually came from her. Her Empire contract is why she had to leave "Difficult People." They upped her to regular status. They told her she could guest star on other shows, that aren't competing with Empire, with their permission. She said her contract only allowed for 3 episodes. So that year, after leaving Difficult People as a regular, she returned and did 2 episodes. That year, Emma Roberts dropped out of an episode of AHS: Hotel, Ryan called Sidibe, Fox/Empire told her she could do the guest spot last minute so she ran over and shot it. Then Apocalypse rolled around Empire/Fox was a bit more giving but she still couldn't do every episode but I do think she did more than 3. So, yes. Same parent company but she still was limited on what they'd let her do even though her character on Empire didn't do much anyway. That cast was huge.

What happened to Lange's character from season 1? I've forgotten a ton. Same with Six Feet Under.

r313...the maid was released by Madison Montgomery and Billy Porters character...they dug up her bones to free her to appease Constance in order to get information on Michael, and she is now trapped in the house after committing suicide there.

When Finn attacked the snuffy man and woman, there was a glimpse of him attacking them in the camera monitor. So his face is on camera lunging toward the couple who were presumably found dead in their house.

Of course, this is a sloppy RM production and so it probably won't have any role later on, but in any well-written story like that, it would be an obvious plot device and we'd know he's going to be identified by the police as the killer once they look at the couple's snuff films after finding their bodies.

Mallory undid all of this in Apocalypse.

Constance is still alive (since Michael is dead and she refused to take him to the Murder House since even she thought he was a monster) and Moira the Maid's bones were never removed.

by Anonymousreply 327September 9, 2021 10:38 AM

I'm watching it now. The irony of American Horror Story being about what makes a good vs. poor writer is...something.

One small example of what's so terrible about this writing (not really a spoiler, just a small scene): Belle Noir came out from her book reading to find her husband sitting outside. She asked why he didn't come in. He told her, exasperated, that her writing embarrasses him. Yada yada.

This is all for the sake of 'info dumping' onto the viewer, to show us that her relationship was strained by her writing. But the actual relationship we see makes no sense. The way her husband told her her writing is poor and embarrassing is as if it is the first time he has ever said it, and he was too embarrassed even to go inside. She expected that he would go inside. So we can intuit that he had supported her up until this point—past the point of writing, which takes a long time, and past the point of self-publishing, and apparently past the point of multiple readings—and for unknown reasons, he chooses this moment outside of this Provincetown book shop to totally turn on her with anger and tell her she is a hack and her writing humiliates him? Convenient.

It's just a mess. AHS'a writers are no better than E.L. James is. I wouldn't be surprised if the scripts mention inner goddesses dancing.

Also, these brutal killings have been going on for years in Provincetown—yet the sheriff/police chief seemed to believe the town was safe and she had no idea what was going on at the beginning of the season, and she wasn't playing dumb because she walked into the trap and got herself killed. It's like the writers of each episode don't have any idea what has been written in other episodes. Even if she were relatively new, the cop would have heard about all the killings for sure and would know it's a dangerous area with a lot of fatal crimes. But no. Here, she told Lily Rabe it's a safe, quiet town and seemed totally oblivious to the vampire people on the streets, the dead bodies everywhere with bite marks in their necks.

We've been told multiple times that the exceptional people have to keep taking the pills, that their creative surge is only temporary. Yet with the mundane people one pill seems to make them permanently blood thirsty walking corpses. How in the hell does that work? Also if Belle and Even's character go off the the pills in the summer wouldn't the side effect of basically becoming a sociopath wear off and they would have to deal with their consciences for all the death and destruction they've caused. For fuck sake Belle ate a baby, that would kind of be something that her mind might have a hard time dealing with in its normal state.

Hi, the explanation is really poor writing.

The only reason I am still watching is because the general question does appeal to my psyche. What would become of me if I took it? I studied creative writing but have had little success. I paint and draw as a personal endeavor and not to sell work, but I nevertheless question whether or not I have 'real' talent or I'm just a hack. So the core question has appeal to me, much more than some standard romantic storyline, etc. But one upside of watching this show is that I feel like it proves that writing success (like everything in life) is much more about access to power than it is about talent. There's no doubt that there's a world of writers who have more talent than the AHS writers who are making millions from this dreck.

by Anonymousreply 339September 9, 2021 11:52 AM

The pill makes talented people even more talented.

But it makes you have uncontrollable cravings for blood.

The problem is that once you stop taking it you lose your talent completely. You can't go back to the way you were before. You have ruined yourself forever.

Being a sociopath is the byproduct of needing blood and their genius being inflated. They're already screwed up, egotistical people. Sure Austin can take the summer off of killing only because it's the smart thing to do for his survival but he will get right back to it when he can and he absolutely won't care a bit.

This series gets worse with each passing season. So far, this current series is terrible, it's got more holes than Swiss cheese. More questions than answers.

A small town with tons of murders, no one comes in to investigate etc. Belle kills and chops up her husband, doesn't he have family beyond her? So many dead and missing people, yet no one is questioning where their missing loved ones are? A dead baby? No one in the town wonders what happened to a baby?

Ever think that people into the horror genre are simply HOPING this trash will improve? Audiences today are much more savvy than you assume, "armchair critics" my ass. Viewers don't like to waste time on garbage. It really is as simple as that, especially with so much content out there.

I will say, with so much content out there to watch, between regular broadcast TV, cable and streaming services, If people don't enjoy this series, no one is forcing them to watch it.

It's obvious, some are watching AHS for the specific performers (Evan Peters sure has his fans here at DL), others continue to watch, because they enjoy horror. You cannot generalize about viewers.

I recommend an excellent series, which was originally on CBS last year, EVIL. Unfortunately, this year it's back on, but being aired on a streaming service, Paramount+.

by Anonymousreply 353September 9, 2021 3:43 PM

There's something about this show that brings many people back year after year even though they swore never to watch again at at least seven or eight different points. I'm speaking from experience, of course. There are shitty things about every season, but also many entertaining and memorable things.

My ranking:

Asylum (Dark, very dark. Three different serial killers, a Nazi Doctor, and a Nun possessed by Lucifer. Lange's best on AHS. Same for Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe.)

Cult (I've only seen this once, but I remember it being dark, but really silly at times. Just morbid as hell. Evan Peters was excellent. The clown stuff was a stupid.)

Murder House (Dark but with more camp than Asylum & Cult. Despite an amusingly large cast, it's a solid story with interesting detours here and there.)

Red Tide (So far I'm digging it. Good cast, interesting setting, high stakes, tighter storytelling.)

Coven (Starts off really strong, but Kathy, Jessica, and Angela steal the show, and once they're gone, everything gets tepid.)

Freak Show (Interesting characters in an aimless plot that boiled down to "assholes trying to kill each other for reasons" much like the last half of Hotel.)

Hotel (I didn't like much of anything except Evan Peters as Mr. March and Mare Winningham as his confidant. Chloe Sevigny should have played The Countess.)

Apocalypse (I liked the first 1/3 with the bunker and Cody Fern's introduction, and the Warlock coven was cool. Everything else was silly.)

Roanoke (I loved the first 1/3 with Kathy Bates as The Butcher & Even Peters as the Gay Ghost. All the meta stuff after didn't work for me.)

1984 (The only season with ZERO redeeming elements. Totally aimless story. Worst was Richard Ramirez and Billie Lourd.)

The messy writing that I hate was the singer’s line about being vegan and Impossible Meat. There was the time jump of two years with Belle meeting Evan’s character and then there must be four or five years for him to become a famous playwright bringing us up to when the present day is supposed to be. So he’s saying that line 5 or 6 years ago when it was in it’s early stages and barely mainstream, if even available commercially. There’s very little adherence to actual historical timeline accuracy in Murphy project land. Even Billie having all those 80’s fashions seems off, the turn over of property from gays dying of AIDS and straight gentrification would have happened much earlier, not just five years ago.

Not this one. I watched through Coven, and I loathed it by mid-season.

I watched the beginning of freak show and then turned it off.

I watched part of the first episode of hotel and was too bothered by the graphic rape scenes and turned it off.

I watched part of the Roanoke premiere and had no interest.

I watched (cult?) the first episode of the season with Sarah Paulson looking like a nervous chihuahua and screaming and crying in the grocery store and turned it off.

And I watched all of Apocalypse and thought it at least had a story for a change. It wasn't the worst thing I'd ever seen—until the Antichrist was defeated with a Jeep after weathering nukes and witchcraft, and then it was the worst thing I had ever seen.

I feel like I have given this series more chances than it deserves. I usually tune in out of curiosity but it quickly becomes unwatchable to me most of the time.

If you scroll up, there are comments from me after the first couple of episodes crediting the smaller scale and intimacy of the story and that this season actually *has* a coherent narrative. I was very hopeful. I wasn't set on hating it. I want it to be better than it is. It's not my fault that the writing is among the worst on television.

Well, the reason the "fans of the genre" love it, is because we don't overthink every last detail of the show, because we realize that it's all FICTION. So we just sit back and enjoy it for what it is: ENTERTAINMENT.

We also realize that VAMPIRES ARE NOT REAL, and therefore, nothing else in the story has to make total sense either, because it's just a fantasy.

I started watching this season last night, on the Hulu app. Saw the first two episodes. I’m only watching because Finn Wittrock is the most beautiful man alive and Evan Peters is divine in every possible way. Culkin hurts to look at, he’s so ugly. The show is trash, but watchable trash.

I think it’s the first show I’ve seen that’s streamed in UHD that actually looks stunningly impressive in its 4K resolution. I don’t watch current TV shows that are shown in UHD, so I’m not saying all the other ones look like ass—just that this is the first one I’ve watched. The detail is incredible.

Of course we don’t expect it to be 100% historically accurate but multiple bloody murders (including the police chief) and random mutilated corpses/body parts washing up on the shore don’t seem to be bothering the local cops much (or attracting any media attention, for that matter.)

This is the problem with the entire series after season one.

Asylum was mostly OK but the stupid song-and-damce to satiate Jessica Lange's ego was foreboding.

Coven was OK until the first witch died and remained alive. Then the second half of the season progressed with that happening. When there is no death, then nothing is at stake. Especially in horror.

That's the failure of the whole series. But beyond that, the writing is just inexcusably mindless. All yhe questions asked here are simple ones that should have been resolved by a team of writers to create a credible alternative reality.

So, if you have some talent take the pill, it magnifies that talent while giving you a thirst for blood. but isn't that entire reasoning really vague. Writing, musicianship are examples of talent but what about something like whistling ("Oh, Billy, for a five-year old, you have such a talent for whistling!") or even something more abstract like an academic or scholastic talent.

Speaking of the pills... the side effects for both the talented and the non are a thirst for blood which apparently also manifests as a feeding frenzy when its available, The users aren't turned into traditional vampires with no immortality, no super strength, etc. And yet everyone seems to fear them, including each other. But if they basically remain the same physical person, what;s to stop someone from slapping the shit out of a prepubescent violin-playing psycho or a geriatric female romance novelist?

Felt bad for Lily Rabe in this. I would’ve probably killed her rather than leave her to be a zombie person.

RM loves Paulson too much, like Lange, not to make her the heroine. Her storyline is ubresolved. She will return. The season poster shows a split image, with an alien head above the water and a Ptown loser vampire below the surface. We have seen a few killings on the shore but no underwater vampire action—yet that is what the poster promises, and what the title Red Tide suggests as a setting. Last we saw Paulson, she was walking into the tide making it red with her blood. So I fully expect she will resurface and triumph. Also, if Murphy has any actual creative control, his subconscious will probably be compelled to punish the characters who are brilliant writers because of his envy of their talent.

Just a hunch.

Also, I realized the last two episodes they’re also ripping off Blue Sunshine.
