TV American Horror Story: Freak Show

  1. Anyone watching this? I haven't seen the first 3 seasons of AHS but decided to give this one a chance (it's an anthology format) since it has circus freaks... and a fucking clown that scares people shitless. Good cast too.

    Two episodes in, and shit's good.
  2. I have watched every season and I absolutely love this show.. I only have one problem this season, I have a clown phobia so I have to look away whenever that dude is on the screen.. so I've missed a bit of the killing. I like what they are doing every season, bringing the same cast back but in different settings each season.. very good concept and it definitely works.

  3. I think most people hate clowns and it makes the horror element even better for it, I can't stand them.

    The show has been amazing so far, a huge breath of fresh air after a shitty made for tv style horror movie last year (i know it's tv, but still, it was cheesy and poorly written) This season, however, has been just perfect. Great acting, awesome plot movement, and my favorite part is how they really humanized the characters, even just starting at the end of episode one with the legs. Really looking forward to this season..

  4. Yeah, I think they were aiming for more female viewers last year, obviously, but the one thing I really, really enjoyed in Coven were the interactions between the characters played by Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett.. the acting was phenomenal between the 3 of them.

    I am looking forward to the rest of this season as well.. even with that fucking clown running around.
  5. Loved seasons 1 and 2, particularly 2. S3 was awful IMO for a bunch if different reasons.

    Haven't started in on S4 yet but I am fairly excited for it.
  6. Only caught the first episode so far, but it's definitely got me interested.

  7. Like I said in the OP, I haven't seen any of the three previous seasons so I gotta ask, is the show always this goofy and easy-going, despite being a horror? Because, that's EXACTLY why I seem to dig AHS, such a fun concept.

    I gotta hop on Murder House ASAP.
  8. Yes, it definitely has the humor mixed in and is very nonchalant about how things go down... Like D'Z said seasons 1 and 2 were excellent and season 3 was just okay as it was geared more toward women.. being a coven of witches and all that, but it still had it's moments and I enjoyed it anyway. I knew it was going to be something special halfway through season 1.. it was the most unique thing on TV and it still is today.

    If you need links to watch the previous seasons just let me know and I'll link you to a site with every episode thus far.

  9. Yeah, I love the constant "creepy" score they're feeding us with. There ARE things and loops that don't make sense, but the showrunners just don't care much, and I think that's the part of the charm.

    Example: (open)
    Look at this poor prick just lying down with his hands doing nothing while the clown is ripping him apart, lol:


    I also love how they use the songs from the far future, and Ryan Murphy said they did it for every episode, lol.

    Oh, and remember to brush your teeth, otherwise
    this is what happens: (open)

    Nah, thanks but they're all on KAT, easy access and fast download.

  11. Anyone caught S3? I liked it. Kathy Bates did a great job with her character. Twisty did not get much air time, but he delivered.
  12. E4 thoughts:

    spoilers (open)
    This was easily 10/10 episode for me. Goofy as fuck, terrifying at moments, we got to see everyone's backstory, and we lost Twisty only to get the new one, way way crazier and way more dangerous.
    Jimmy is such an awesome character, that's how you write a tragic persona. That feelgood moment with the residents coming to meet with the freaks was beautiful.

    So it looks like part one of the season is over, can't wait to see what they got in store next.
  13. I'm two episodes behind. Watched the second episode yesterday, definitely enjoying the show and am really excited to see where it goes.
