    Default American Horror Story *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

    Anyone watching this? It's on FX Wednesdays at 10:00. You can watch the first episode here.

    The maid is ridiculously hot in a Twin Peaks Audrey kind of way.

    I'm absolutely watching this show lol. I'm actually surprised at all of the swearing and sexual content they've been showing on a normal channel, even if it's 10pm, you know?
    I dig it though, especially how both episodes have started out. Now I'm curious about how everyone is tied in with one another.

    Well, I think Tate is dead and the "normal" son of Constance that she lost to other things. The maid is also a ghost which explains why Constance tells her, "Don't make me kill you again". Here is a really good recap that brings to light some good points.

    Isn't Jessica Lange magnificent?? I also love seeing Denis O'Hare (Russel from True Blood) in this! Dylan McDermott isn't so bad on the eyes either.

    I'm really liking this show so far, though almost none of the characters are likable in the traditional sense. They all seem like pawns or playthings, which kind of adds to the horror of it all. It seems to borrow a lot from real-life murders/murderer lore, as well as well-known premises from horror movies, like The Shining. It all works somehow.

    Jessica Lange is fantastic. She's kind of a really creepy Blanche Dubois.

    I just put it on TiVo, based on what little I saw in this thread. (I've been avoiding reading much here due to potential spoilers.)

    I did see Jessica Lange mentioned. Oh, she is just one amazing actor, I just saw her again in Rob Roy the other week. (I'm thinking she pulled out an Oscar or Academy Award for that one.)

    This is an interesting season, I don't think I'll have watched so much TV for aeons. (I'm currently watching Glee, Person of Interest, Terra Nova, and now this.)

    I only saw the pilot episode, which I loved. It's frustrating how damn stupid every character is, though.

    Jessica Lange is incredible, she's the best thing there. However, I don't think her alone is enough to make me keep watching. I have other television priorities *ahem* The Walking Dead.

    So far, pretty interesting. And super creepy, but so far the creepiness is within tolerable levels.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    We may need a Walking Dead thread. (Walking Thread?)

    OKay, I watched the pilot last night on Hulu and have Episode 2 TiVo'ed for later tonight (I think the third episode is out tomorrow).

    It was kind of weird. I've watched lots of pretty intense horror flicks, and so the show didn't really seem to be exceptionally creepy I guess because of my exposure to such things -- but after it was over (I watched it at 11pm), and the house was dark, I was really creeped out even just walking to the bathroom. I wanted to just shut the door to my room and stay under the covers.

    I find the concept and tone intriguing right now, I'm just not sure where they can go with it for an entire series. Also, I have trouble thinking of any characters I admire in the series so far; the best are very flawed but each is kind of distasteful. I'm interested in them as character studies but don't really have any affection for any of them.

    I was kind of surprised at the level of the language and kink sex (and McDermott's naked bum, ha, have we ever seen so much guy flesh in a TV show pilot before?) on a non-cable channel. Nothing wrong with that, I was just surprised since they usually scrub the public channel shows heavily.
