    Funny, I just googled where season 4 was and it premiers today apparently, in the US at least. 21st at 10 on Fox in Uk (if you watch it that way)

    I'm not holding out much hope myself. I loved the first one, didn't like the second then despised the third. It just keeps going downhill to me.

    Saying that, I bet I watch at least some of it anyway :D

    That clown is reason enough to give the series a chance. If the series goes more like the start of season 2 it could be excellent.

    No way I am watching another series of this after the third one. It was abysmal.

    I thought the third series was the most entertaining and accessible. I thought the first season was utter guff, although enjoyable, and the second was kind of stupid, until they made it interesting with aliens.

    But what do I know?

    I found them enjoyable enough to watch this season. Kathy Bates was the best thing about last season though, even if you didn't like anything else about it?

    This for me. I gave up with it halfway through, I thought it was dire. Way too much going on and it descended into farce most of the time. Is season 2 tighter and a little bit more low-key? Or is this the way it goes?

    In hindsight series 1 was a good watch. In reality hardly anyone watched it weekly, and those who did really had to struggle through the middle of the series until it kicked off.

    I just hope they've thrown the "lets have this scene sideways and out of focus" guy out the fucking window.

    Nope, if anything season 2 is even more of a farce. Nazi doctors, alien implants, exorcisms... it's great! A wonderful mess, there's really nothing else like it. I love this show.

    Yeah Season 2 is ridiculous. The reason I like the first season is that I think you can see how they've sat down and wrote the thing out from start to finish, got the whole story worked out. Season 2 and 3 are the opposite, they seem to literally be making them up on the fly, letting key story points just disappear because they can't be arsed with them any longer and have no idea what to do with any of it.

    lolaliens.

    Love this series and the fact that every season is a different setting, story and characters but with many of the same actors. I did not realise season 4 had already started. Downloading now! :D

    Ha I just watched it. He pisses all over Penny Wise that's for sure!

    (well, he doesn't really, as Penny wise is terrifying as hell, but in the dirty serial killer way he does)

    It was... OK. Some aspects were really interesting, though all that orgy stuff was just ridiculous. I actually liked the clown, even though I thought that would be a bit too old hat.

    Unsure on the Bowie bit as well! I kind of loved it and hated it all at once.

    The Bowie cover was fantastic! :D

    So, so, so very weird, just the way I like this show.

    Absolutely loved the season 4 opener and Jessica Lange, as always, is superb, even if her German accent wavers a little in places. Cannot fault her for trying though.

    The premise has definite shades of the The X-Files "Humbug" episode from Season 2, which dealt with a Circus Freak Show. The two-headed Dot/Bette was superbly done and she was featured heavily surprisingly, as I would have thought it would be an expensive effect shot to do.

    I enjoyed the musical number too but how on earth can Elsa be singing a David Bowie song, Life on Mars, in the 1950s! It's a minor point, I guess, but it looks like someone hasn't done their research properly. :confused:

    My only real complaint with the episode was the musical score elsewhere which was so loud and overbearing in places that I was struggling to hear the dialogue.

    P.S. The clown was freaky as hell...wonder if he will ever talk as I must admit that I did think that was a mask he was wearing when I first saw him (well, OK, yes, I know it *is* a mask in reality but in the show that is how his mouth looks, being a "freak" and all that).

    Enjoyed the first episode, especially the Bowie bit. The clown was really creepy and I couldn't figure out which parts were his face and which was the mask.

    The only part I had a problem with was Kathy Bates' accent. Couldn't decide if it was Boston Irish or that weird Fargo accent.

    I find this more and more with (especially American) TV shows, they feel the need to have *constant* music which distracts from the audio.

    Normally I quite like this approach, but yeah in this case I often couldn't hear what was being said.

    Fairly sure that they would have known, and done it intentionally.

    Why? Maybe no reason, but it would be cool if they had a young David Bowie attend the show at some point. This is where he got the ideas for his songs! Scary monsters, super freaks

    Yeah that isn't the sort of thing that slips by. They just won't have cared.

    Enjoyed that, especially the clown. Glad there's some horror back in American Horror Story after season 3: Witch Diaries.
  • Deleted user 16 October 2014 21:24:22
    Another good episode this week, really good introduction thats sure to upset these folk.

    Fiona Apple was a great choice but I hope it isn't going to have a song every week.

    Also carny Vic Mackey \o/

    I really, really didn't need to see under Twisty's mask. Ugh.

    The scariest thing in this show is Kathy Bates's accent.

    It's like half the time she's trying for some kind of Australian/South African mishmash, and the other half something from Baaawston.

    It's really strange isn't it? It's like halfway through a scene she thinks "Oh shit, I'm meant to have an accent!" and then does some super concentrated accent from... somewhere for a couple of sentences.

    I thought she was doing a North Western, Canadian border kind of thing.

    Either way, I gave up on this after episode two.

    I really like it. At the very least it looks sensational. And I love the Dandy and Twisty partnership.
