    Just saw this teaser for the first time. It has the usual creepy and disturbing images. It premieres Sept. 12.—I’m marking my calendar!

    Best trailer I've ever seen. Very cool.

    Seems to bring back Murder House and Coven in new trappings. Should be interesting.

    Still waiting for Season 7 to show up on Netflix. I binge watched the first 6 seasons during my vacation last fall. Loved 'em all but found certain parts of Hotel to be a bit boring but it was still decent.

    Taissa Farmiga x 2! She will be murdered at least once but hopefully will get plenty of episodes. I will be surprised if Emma Roberts lasts more than one episode but I always look forward to seeing her murdered.

    Does Joan Collins have dual citizenship? She's often seen in shows being filmed in, as well as being seen out and about in, both London and Los Angeles. I know her late younger sister Jackie had such citizenship.

    Wow, this looks "busy". I can't wait! But still have to see the last season first. And I hope Queenie returns. And boy am I dumb! I just realized the actress that plays Zoe is Vera Farmiga's younger sister!

    I didn't spot Jessica Lange during the promo but see that she's listed with the rest scheduled to appear. Here's hoping it's more than just a cameo as the show's better when she's in it, regardless of season!

  13. Did anyone watch this last night?

    Garbage.

    Oh my, what a mess.

    If you added a little film grain to the image it would have been identical to a '70s C-list shlock fest, except with cell phones.

    I could have done a better job at filming this with a polaroid camera.

    I can't wait for next week's episode. :D

    I don't expect fine cinematography with this show! I thought it had a promising beginning. . .and already is devolving somewhat. . . but I'll watch next week.

    I"m interested to see how they handle the further integration of the two early seasons into this season. Obviously the character at the end of the episode is from the first season.

    I enjoyed it, and hope it sustains my interest for the entire season. Roanoke started out strong IMO but fell apart. Hotel was just schlocky sex and violence, with no interesting plot. I'm hopeful they've regained some of the early mojo.

    She was in both seasons that this one is the sequel to - in Murder House, she played the girlfriend of Evan Peters' ghost, and daughter of Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott. And in Coven, she was one of the primary witches, Zoe.

    I found it mostly underwhelming, although it started off great. The Victorian dress and style seemed odd, although I guess it’s supposed to encourage strict social convention and conformity. There’s a lot that hasn’t been explained that hopefully will get revealed over time. After 18 months of food cubes, shouldn’t they all be skinnier?

    I thought the enforced old style clothes was sort of a snarky nod to A Handmaid's Tale (Hulu version).

  18. A lot of stuff made little sense. Sometimes no sense at all.

    I thought the first 2 seasons were killer. The circus one was pretty cool, too.

    I'm tellin' ya, these guys are spreading themselves too thin.

    Just watched it. I liked it. Completely different, like last season's Trump series. Sometimes, I can only take so much blood and gore, and this one was nicely gore light. I also like that it's somewhat Sci-fi with a weird Omega Man vibe. I will always watch these series. I never thought I would, but the writer's always keep it fun with black humor and the best part is the cast, lead by Sarah Paulson. is always superlative.

    Watched it on the DVR last night and I enjoyed it. This is the first season I have seen during its run. The first 6 I saw on Netflix and I have yet to see 7. Not sure if it is on Netflix yet but when it is I will binge watch it. First episode was interesting and I am in for the long haul good or bad.

    Watched every season. So far, a bit bland, hopefully things will fall into place.
