    Starts tonight on FX in the UK. Hoping it lives up to the first two series.

    So far it doesn't. They seem to have replaced atmosphere and story with slanted camera angles and fisheye lenses every other shot.

    its been ok, just nothing mindblowing yet. I think its just starting to spice up a bit after the end of the last ep though.

    I'm enjoying it more than the first. Nowhere near as much as the second.
    The characters are good. But why is that blonde always really fucking annoying?

    i loved season 2 other than the alien angle its really deriled things for me. They should have just kept it about the looney bin.

    I think the time period in the second was part of the appeal.

    The new season is great. The latest episode had the guy that plays Ben Diamond from Magic City in it as an axe murderer so i'm happy :)

    Last weeks Evil Dead homage bit was actually pretty fun as well.

    TV needs more fucking weird shows like this.

    I think this season is the best so far by a LONG way. I saw some slagging of the camerawork above but personally I love all that stuff. I think the characters and relationships are the most accessible and enjoyable yet and I'm enjoying it far more than the first two series, both of which I also really liked.

    I'm enjoying this, but its beginning to stumble a bit now. I think they should have kept zombies out of it tbh. Its just silly isn't it. Still, its weird. And weird is wonderful!

    I'm honestly thinking that this is the best show on TV at the moment.

    It's embracing its utter batshit crazieness and i am looking forward to every new episode now.

    Mmm, and on the other hand a modern day witches coven is completely normal. Yep.

    Just watched the first episode on Netflix. RUBBISH!

    Where to begin? It's completely ridiculous, just a bunch of horror tropes thrown at the screen at an exhausting pace with no real concern for coherence. The maid is a prime example. So, she's about 60 to everyone but the husband who sees her as a seductress in her mid-20s or so. HOW HAS NO ONE REALISED THAT?! Surely her age would have been mentioned in passing by either the wife or the daughter at some point when discussing her. "She's getting on a bit, but she does a good job" "What do you mean, she's about 25?". If the writers can't be bothered figuring stuff like that out why should I care about the show? It's just lazy.

    The first episode alone genuinely must introduce over ten different storylines/mysteries. So, we have the maid, the (potentially evil) burned guy who used to live in the house, the girl with Downs syndrome and her mum, the dead twins from the 70s, the sleepwalking husband, the mystery man in the gimp suit the disturbed teenager who is also possessed or something oh who gives a shit

    The way it's filmed was also really disorientating, and not in a good way. Odd edits, going in and out of focus, quick zooms... it just made me feel a bit seasick in a way. It never settled for more than five seconds.

    The characters are all dreadful as well. Once you're at the point where you're just laughing at what's happening then there's no going back.

    There isn't an original bone in its body and can't even do the old classic tropes well anyway.

    The worst thing is I've been wanting to watch it for ages and was really excited when I saw it had been added to Netflix.

    The first series was dogshit
    The second, fantastic
    I started the third but gave up.

    Whilst the majority of the cast are good/great, AHS seems intent on focussing on the weakest, most shit cast members.

    I think it took a while for the show to settle on the "batshit crazy" tone that made the second series so entertaining.

    I concur, the second series is the only one worth watching.

    I disagree, I liked the second and the third, I have no idea why the third has so much hate. I found the first the most frustrating because that leading man was such a wanker, I wanted him to die from the moment he was introduced.

    It isn't that bad. It's quite good fun really. But the other series are better.

    The good thing about the show is that you can skip the whole first season if you like. There's no relationship between the stories.

    Wrong thread i know, but as we're talking shite first seasons (series whatever) then the following needs a mention, its been a great second season since they made it a comedy.
