    Default American Horror Story on FX

    Tonight is episode two, the premiere last week rocked! Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Jessica Lange in an extra juicy role. You'll either love it or hate it. Give it a try, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Horror_Story
    Huh? Wot?? Dig it :tongue:

    Meh. Lots of cliches. And Ryan Murphy tends to just keep trying to top himself (if anyone watched NIp/Tuck, you'll know what I'm talking about) so if that's where he starts.... this one's gonna spin out of hand quickly.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    I watched it the first night. Definately weird/odd/kooky/different. I didn't really 'get' it. But I'll give it a couple more episodes before I dump it.

    I just turned the channel from revenge and I'll switch back and forth if possible.

    Nope, I can't watch it. The camera movement iritates the heck out of me and my wife has Meneirs(sp) disease so this is a no-no for her.

    Shame, it looks like a great production otherwise.

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    I'm all about weird, kinky, offbeat, violence, etc., but McDermott in episode 1, standing naked in front of the gas range with all 4 burners lit, warming his hands before he spanked the monkey was a bit too far out there for me.

    Heard that! Now if it were Kate Beckinsale standing naked in front of the gas range with all 4 burners lit, warming her hands before.... Well, that would definitely be fine with me.

    I'm def giving it a chance...have yet to see last night's episode but the pilot shows it will be interesting and maybe confusing, if nothing else. It's a little weird and that in itself will keep me coming back.

    I wasn't really blown away by the premiere, but decided to give the second episode a chance. Yeah... it's riddled with cliches and definitely favors style over substance, but I REALLY was entertained for some reason. I'll keep watching until the wheels inevitably come off the tracks.
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Wonder if it'll have a vague, bullsh!t ending the way Lost did.

    I guess I better get my fix in before DirectTV drops FX.

    Well, I've stuck with it and they've done a good developing the characters and basic premise, and McDermott had calmed down with the monkey spanking antics. I do like Mike's comment Kate Beckinsale give it a try

    So amazingly enough... for a show that seems like it can only make a simple premise go so far, it sure feels like they crammed about twenty storylines into a single episode last night. If anything, this show is creative and definitely doesn't want for energy.

    What's that disease Tony?

    The show feels like they're trying to make a David Lynch movie into a series.

    Correct. F/X asked for more money, and DirecTV is saying no. I think they're dropping them this week? It's soon.

    Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy creator, writer for the Shield) is having a hilarious war with them, because that guy has NO filter, so he's basically telling everyone to go eff themselves.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Finally watched the recorded last 2 episodes. This week's one had a crawler across the screen several times about the FX situation and there were a few "commercials" with the creators going on about it too.

    I read(in USA Today I think) that there was to be a 2nd episode this week but I don't see it on my guide...all I see is reruns until the next original episode.

    This is probably my favorite show on TV presently. For those interested... the producers just confirmed that each season will feature a new cast, new house and new plot. So don't expect any loose ends to get tied up next year. Should keep this show fresh, IMO.

    Thoughts?
