I don’t get why no one ever likes Hotel. It was my favorite season with really strong and interesting scenes. I loved the aesthetics, the soundtrack and especially Lady Gaga’s character. She was so elegant, stylish and ethereal (or the opposite?) in it. It was fun to find out more about her past and about the hotel in general, and the references to/the appearance of well-known mass murderers were really cool. I also liked that there were several characters I could empathize with. Most of the other seasons lack this and only transfer negative emotions. I prefer if there is a bit humor and positivity, too. In Hotel, it was nice to see some of the characters finding salvation as I liked them. This and its unique style made this season stand out to me. Same with Coven, as there were some badass but also likable characters with iconic looks.
In most of the other seasons, the characters don’t seem human at all to me. They behave very weirdly and most of them are dumb. They are uninteresting and I can’t identify with them at all. I know that you’re not supposed to identify with every single character, but all of them being so bland and often randomly evil is strange. Not sure if it is supposed to be like that or bad writing. Imho, Cult was the worst as all the characters were annoying and one-dimensional. And they somehow all were evil, too. It was so random. I stopped watching mid-season and haven’t come back yet. I think I eventually will watch Apocalypse as it seems to have some previous characters in it. I am not very fond of the 80s topic of this season, it has been used too much in the past. Literally, every second horror franchise goes 80s since Stranger Things, it is boring at this point.
I actually didn’t watch cult of you guys thinks it’s any good I’ll have a watch
But I meant in hotel I’m not sure what episode it is but a drug addict gets assaulted by a dude wearing a drill dildo
(what the actual fuck were they thinking)
I don’t get upset often when watching tv but I literally had to skip that part
Apocalypse was hot garbage don't even bother. It's barely Apocalypse and more just useless filler about shit we already know and unnecessary flashbacks. Plus lots and lots of fanservice.
Cult is really good imo. You should watch that. I don't want to spoil anything though.
Freak show was thel worst season imo
Watch fram the beginning or maybe season 3 coven.
The first two seasons were pretty interesting. Murder House did have that tween romance shit that I despise, but the overall setting was nice and it did have some creepy scenes. Asylum is my personal favourite. It really went batshit insane, but in a way that I feel made sense. They really threw everything imaginable into that season - nazis, Anne Frank, aliens, demons etc. Coven kinda started to lose me. I consider it a guilty pleasure because really, the season wasn't very good. The plot was all over the place and it didn't have that fun campyness Asylum had. The only thing holding it together was the older cast imo. With Freak Show, I liked the setting and era of it very much, but man, they really fucked it up. Killing off the clown and replacing him with that manchild was so lame, the gore was just there to shock and nothing else (it reminded me of Eli Roth's horror movies; very flashy but really boring) and none of the characters appealed to me, which was the worst crime. I dropped it half-way through. It's a pity because I liked the different story every season gimmic and it truly did have interesting setups, but the plot/characters just kept shitting the bag.
>Do you think it will stand the test of time?
Honestly, no. It might become a sort of cult show that someone will occasionally suggest, but I think even then it'll only be for some of the seasons.
I think that Evan Peters doesn't get enough praise. He is a really good actor and makes great eye candy imo.
Overall I'd rank the seasons I've seen as Asylum>Cult>Coven>Hotel>Murder House>Apocalypse>>>Freakshow, but I did enjoy at least parts of all of them.>>55155
That's just the way AHS is. They always have really strong concepts that are executed poorly. Tbh I think it's kind of charming.
I loved Murder House, Freak Show, and Hotel. Murder House is probably the strongest, but Hotel was really strong too, and I thought Freak Show was beautifully done.
I've hated the rest of it, though. The second season (Asylum?) just felt like throwing a bunch of gimmicks at the wall to see what sticks, but it never went in depth with anything, so it just felt shallow. I liked the idea of Cult, with the Fight Club references and commentary on proto-fascism, as well as the Warhol references, but overall it felt like a weak mess. I watched the first few episodes of Apocalypse, and I love post-apocalyptic and Satanic themes, but it just got so painfully forced and ridiculous that I gave up on it. I never got that far with the witch season (Coven?), so I might go revisit that. I also couldn't deal with the Southern Gothic (Roanoke?) one because even though I love that genre, the reality show format was excruciating.

Idk how to feel about this season, like I like the cheap 80s horror movie aesthethic and they really found a good visual match for ramirez kek and the plot twists were nice save for the cliffhanger in the last episode, that shit was just cheesy, and I didn't foresee them but overall it just feels so shallow and like it could easily be condensed down from the current 4 episodes. Hope it gets weirder/connects to the previous mythology in the next 4 episodes somehow bc rn it is bit lackluster. Also I hate the intro sequence.
Season 1, could have been great, but in the end it felt like they just wasted a interesting setting and concept even if its nothing new. 6.6/10
Season 2, had a good story, but the asylum itself and the time period just didn't do anything for me. 6.5/10
Season 3, I dropped two, or three episodes in. Once they dug that women up. The show constantly tried so hard to show how "woke" it is that my eyes were at risk of rolling out of my head.
Season 4, same deal as Season 1. 6.5/10
I was never a Lady Gaga fan so I didn't watch S5, or anything after.
For me, AHS can be summarised in four words. Good premise, shit execution.
Honestly I'm so cynical that at this point I just watch it to see what a trainwreck it is. I liked 1984 more than I expected (Emma Roberts, Zach Villa, and John Carroll Lynch really stole the show) but overall it was just kind of messy and I hate when they do the mid-season time skip.
Overall – favorite seasons are Asylum, Coven, and Cult. Everyone hypes up Murder House but I never really got into it – maybe just cause I can't stand Dylan McDermott. Also Lady Gaga's character was a mess in Hotel and I'm glad they didn't have her as a major role again.

I still rewatch old seasons sometimes because I kind of love how cheesy Season 1 has become. I'd consider rewatching Cult because I'm curious to see how it holds up after a hellish four years of U.S. politics, but I cannot STAND any of Leslie Grossman's characters. They had her playing bitchy characters that didn't work at ALL for a woman in her 40s, like what the fuck were they thinking casting her as a shallow, rich "influencer" character in Apocalypse? And then they made her actually sort of plot-important but never gave her any character development because we needed more fanservice time. I thought she actually did really well in 1984, but you'd think for a show that is approaching 10 seasons and 10 years on television, it wouldn't take them two whole seasons to figure out how to cast her.

Thoughts on Season 10?
bitchy Leslie Grossman character stays bitchy lol
i was disappointed as an alien fan; male pregnancy disturbs me far greater than gore apparently
i kinda of liked the first part, but the ending honestly sucked
the black and white parts of the 2nd half were nice, the modern parts were boring, predictable and pointless
overall, a weak season
I wish they'd gone all in on the camp for the second half. I think it would have been really cool to do each half season with a different tone as well as the different themes, but this was just boring.>>122794
Yeah, the cast is really what holds the show together. The writing is really hit or miss. People's opinions tend to vary wildly on which seasons after 1 and 2 are the best. Personally, I liked Cult, Roanoke, and 1984. Scream Queens is also fun even though it's not technically AHS.
