    Yeah she's in it. I'll add her.

    She's apparently in only one episode.

    I stopped watching after a couple of episodes of Hotel. Has there been a season between the that and this?

    Roanoke was brilliant. In my top 3 I reckon.

    I didn't like Roanoke much at all.

    Looking forward to Billie Lourd, Lena Dunham and Frances Conroy's appearances.

    I doubt it, it's had one good season, two ok seasons and the rest vary from awful to forgettable.

    The hotel one was just unwatchable.

    I thought it was better than Freak Show. the first is still the best, Coven and Asylum decent. I haven't even had time for Roanoke

    I wish someone would tell that little queen who writes them to rein it in, he's like that guy at a party who skips a song on the playlist after ten seconds

    For me,

    1. Asylum - it had an actual plot
    2. Coven - for camp value
    3. Murder House - ok
    4. Roanoke - ultimately went nowhere
    5. Hotel - dull
    6. Freak Show - awful

    I enjoyed Coven the most but Asylum is the strongest season.

    01. Coven
    02. Asylum
    03. Murder House
    04. Freak Show

    Asylum and Roanoke tower above the other 4 - I am surprised to see some of you not rating Roanoke here.

    I like the idea of Cult.

    I agree - slaying those Swedes in the opening scene was NOT a way to endear itself to me. But yeah, it was just too pointlessly dark for me.

    Roanoke however completely shook up the format and got me excited again. It's up there with Asylum for me - a lot of thought went into it, and the cast for Roanoke play it brilliantly.

    That actually looks pretty great. It will obviously be an over complicated mess, but there's always hope.

    The first episode is out. The villain of this season is HOLES.

    What a ridiculous first episode.

    I think my main problem with Murphy's work is its shoddy exposition. His shows are too aware of their audience, too aware that they're a SHOW. And it ends up babying the viewer. "Feud" had the same problem.

    Not immediately blown away

    As much as I know it's deliberate characterisation... the fact that the lead character shrieks her head off at as a little as a piece of coral kind of detracts from her reaction to the genuine horror sequences

    Also FAR FAR too preachy about the Trump stuff. I don't like preachy when I'm already CONVERTED.

    I only managed half the episode but I wasn't in the right mood and I felt watching Project Runway was a better use of my time. I'll go again once episode 2 is released but I agree it's very shriek-y.

    Based on the first episode I am not sure I can deal with too much more of Sarah Paulson's histrionics. There had better be some character development or they can kill her off.

    Yeah fuck off Paulson. She's becoming so one note.

    Not so much one-note as much as just typecast. She's capable of more but she's always shoved into the role of the hysterical woman who's too fucking pathetic to DO anything.

    Well can you blame her? Someone is always trying to steal her Saturn Award.

    :evil: How dare you, this is Ryan Murphy's fault. SP is flawless.

    It wasn't a great episode, but let's not blame Sarah Paulson.

    Haven't seen any of this yet but that meme of Sarah Paulson freaking out in the supermarket tagged "when you see your grindr mistake out in public" has made my LIFE.

    Agree it's a casting issue rather than acting. Paulson coped fine enough in Hotel not playing the damsel. But God I do hope we're not getting a whole series of screaming

    I really liked the first episode. I really don't know what you guys want from this show... It was different to any other season in tone and ideas - that's a big tick for me, and a tough thing to do now we're on Season 7 - and it did everything people have asked for following Seasons 4 and 5: bringing things down to a more focused central idea, rather than a sprawling mess of twenty different subplots.
