American Horror Story Freak Show: 5 Weirdest Moments From 'Orphans'

December 18th, 2014 9:50am EST
American Horror Story Freak Show Recap: 5 Weirdest Moments From
Well, that was a weird waste of an hour. No Dandy. Barely even inching forward in the plot. An episode completely devoted to a character that’s spent two seasons in the background, barely relevant. Yet, “Orphans” managed to be one of the strangest and strangely emotional episodes of this season. Here are the 5 weirdest moments from a very bizarre episode:

Elsa and Pepper’s Previously Unmentioned Relationship

In an attempt to humanize a character that calls her closest companions her “monsters,” “Orphans” creates a backstory for Pepper and Elsa that paints them as closer than ever formerly...

These Insane Quotes

If American Horror Story has one reoccurring strength, it’s in the pure insanity of the dialogue. Every episode is guaranteed to have a few memorable quotes that out of context are baffling, while in-context are just as crazy. Here are this week’s quoteable highlights:

Jimmy to Ima, while spoon feeding her: “If you need it long and hard, I need you soft and wide.”

Dandy was on the top of his game with his crazy ramblings. “I am your God, Jimmy. And I’ve decided you need to suffer. I’m going to destroy you ...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show': Rundown On 'Blood Bath'

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Review: Rundown On 'Blood Ba
These episodes just keep getting crazier, huh? From now until the finale, the show will probably continue to ramp up the weirdness. There’s still no coherent plot or even a major storyline that runs through the whole season. Dandy’s villainy seems pretty contained to the confines of his home and whoever happens to cross his path, disconnected from the major Freak Show aspect of the show. Elsa’s motivation is paper thin that everything she does is both in character and over the top no matter what she ends up doing. The conjoined twins have been so irrelevant to the overall plot that they’ve ...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show': Rundown On 'Test Of Strength'

November 20th, 2014 9:06am EST
'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Episode 7 Recap: Rundown On
“Test of Strength” was a more emotional episode than we’re used to from American Horror Story. The show is always all about the scares and the gross out scenes, but rarely do they attempt to uncover the characters’ more emotional side. That is the power of this episode. There’s still plenty of disgusting imagery and shockers, but there’s also character development.

Characters Worth Remembering

Morris the Artist may never return, but it’s certainly possible. After what he did to Penny, tattooing her face beyond all recognition at her father’s behest, it’d be a shame if he didn’t get some g...

AHS Script Stolen; Includes Pivotal Scene

November 15th, 2014 6:00pm EST
American Horror Story
Executives at 20th Century Fox are in a panic after someone stole an upcoming script for "American Horror Story: Freak Show."

Earlier this month, a page detailing a scene revealing the mysterious plotline from the series' second season was reportedly taken from the setin New Orleans, La.

The scene in question answers the storyline that kept viewers hooked during the 2012 season "Asylum." The scene reportedly involves Pepper the pinhead and a scene that reveals how she ended up in the Briarcliff Manor.

A 20th Century Fox TV rep told TMZ.com, "The theft and unauthorized distribution of our...

'American Horror Story Freak Show' Rundown On 'Edward Mordrake P
In just one episode, American Horror Story: Freak Show may have solved most of its biggest problems. The show still has about 5 characters too many to focus on and tends towards shock value over proper plot, but it took a few strides forward in the culmination of the Edward Mordrake saga. Thankfully, the season is finally starting to pull together the pieces of the puzzle, instead of letting characters and plot lines wander all over. Plus no musical number, thank God.

Here’s a rundown on “Edward Mordrake Part 2:”

Can anyone decipher the main plot of Freak Show? Is it Elsa Mars’ quest for fame and the horrors she’ll commit to get it? Is it about Dot and Bette skirting the law, joining a freak show, and fighting each other? Or maybe it’s about the tough life of Jimmy, who was born into a world he despises? Or is it about a crazy clown, his rich best friend, and the town they’re terrorizing? There are so many major plots that they all start to feel insignificant as the episodes go on, especially since there’s a new threat introduced in every episode. It could be the result of having too many beloved ac...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Rundown On 'Massacres And Matinees'

October 16th, 2014 8:21am EDT
American Horror Story: Freak Show
American Horror Story has never excelled at creating strong plots and characters with coherent motivations. But the one thing it has always done well is embracing its campiness. The episodes that take themselves too seriously are often the least successful. Freak Show is still in that stage of taking itself seriously, but “Massacres and Matinees” also managed to be one of the most ridiculous and funny episodes in the show’s history. Here’s a rundown of the episode:

“Massacres and Matinees” saw the introduction of two new performers in the Freak Show:

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'The Seven Wonders' Finale Reca
Oh Coven, cant’ say that I’ll miss you much or that I’m sad to see you go but, you were an often fun, mostly strange and frustrating ride. It isn’t necessarily accurate to say that the finale is an utter disappointment, especially since the entire season has been kind of a let down. But it was virtually free of any shocks or surprises; even the apparent “plot twists” were predictable and expected. As always, there are some great moments, lines of dialogue and performances that make the episode bearable, but it ultimately falls flat and left me feeling cold. Also, where was the horror? This ...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Is This The End Of Fiona?

January 27th, 2014 10:26am EST
American Horror Story: Coven
Let’s face it; whenever somebody “dies” in Coven, it is hard to take it at face value. Time and time again, characters emerged from their apparent deaths to the surprise of nobody. I mean, Madison, Myrtle, Misty, Queenie, Kyle, need I go on? So when Fiona was brutally killed by the Axeman last episode, it is only natural for us to question the validity or permanence of such an act. There is a slight possibility that Cordelia’s vision is a manipulation by Fiona, yes she saw the violent attack and supposed aftermath (Fiona got fed to the alligators), but Fiona is a pretty powerful witch. Or e...

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'Go To Hell' Recap

January 24th, 2014 8:32am EST
American Horror Story: Coven
With everything that happens in this latest episode of American Horror Story, “Go To Hell”, it really is a rather dull hour of television. Particularly AHS, which has always provided a smidgen of something to keep me entertained. Sure, it has its bit moments of excitement and shock, but ultimately left me feeling… Underwhelmed? Bored? Indifferent? This season hasn’t been the strongest in terms of story or character, so I don’t expect an instant improvement on that front, but while Coven’s narrative has suffered greatly, its sense of fun and entertainment has never really wavered. Whenever t...

January 22nd, 2014 9:45am EST
'American Horror Story:Coven' Theory Of The Week
Fiona’s search for immortality has been a major aspect of Coven’s narrative. Along with who will be the next Supreme it is what drives most of the story. The two are intrinsically tied, as Fiona desperately wants to stop the next Supreme from assuming power. She longs to kill her successor in order to remain alive and in power. The season has derived much of its drama and conflict from this very situation and there are many ways these dilemmas could be solved. Fiona is very willing to do anything to get her way. Will this obsessive pursuit be her downfall?

Well this season is really dragging, huh?

Coven continues to take one step forward, and two steps back in narrative and once again, leans entirely too much on the whole Supreme mystery. I’ve griped about my issues with the season before, and really not much has changed. “Protect the Coven” is another pulpy hour full of the bitchy dialogue and hammy acting we love, but not much else.

First up. It’s a Delphine LaLaurie origin story. Yay? Ugh, enough with this character, did we really need a whole cold open to show that she is a messed up psychopath? We kind of already kne...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Could Cordelia Be The Next Supreme?

Sarah Paulson as Cordelia
The question of who will be the new Supreme has become the biggest mystery in American Horror Story: Coven, it has also been the main source of drama and conflict on the show. As the series progresses the secret intensifies and it is basically what motivates most of the characters actions. Ryan Murphy and Co. have really milked this storyline for all its worth and will likely wait until the very last moment to unveil the true Supreme’s identity. Fiona is hell-bent on killing her successor and she is on her way to kill the entire coven to ensure just that; Madison is desperate to take power,...

Jessica Lange as Fiona
Its becoming more and more clear that Coven is just a big ol’ mess, an undoubtedly fun mess, but an utter mess all the same. American Horror Story has never been a source of exceptionally crafted storytelling, it lacks any kind of subtlety and grace, any nuance or pacing, even logic and continuity. Instead it provides an array of fantastical scenarios full of over the top characters and performances that one can’t help but enjoy. Murder House suffered from not so great characters with questionable motivations and sense (did anyone really care about the Harmons? That show was all about Const...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Is Queenie Really Dead?

Gabourey Sidibe as Queenie
The wait is long for a new episode of American Horror Story, so in order to quell my (and yours of course) longing for new material, I’ll be checking in periodically with some theories, quandaries and reflections on Coven, so far.

Last week’s brilliant episode, “Head” ended with a shocking and devastating final sequence that found Marie Laveau’s entire tribe decimated by Hank: the witch hunter. Most devastating of all, they killed Queenie! Worst of all, it appears that she is actually dead, not Coven dead, but dead dead. Say it isn’t so. Queenie is a truly interesting character and her jou...

“Coven” is back! Finally, that one-week gap was unexpectedly torturous, I had been so used to the weekly fix of witchy bitchery that suffering through that annoying mini-hiatus (who cares about Thanksgiving, really?) gave me some serious withdrawal symptoms. But all is good now that there is a new episode to dissect.

“The Sacred Taking” opens with Queenie asserting her new Voodoo badass persona, cutting a rapist’s heart out, dissing the coven and saying things like, “This is Voodoo,” and “War is coming.” Zoe and Madison try to convince her to come back, Queenie makes it clear that once you...

He and his fraternity brothers find themselves in a tattoo parlor where they all get douche-y tats, except for dear ol’ Kyle who waxes on about his reasons, not to. Another attempt to show how exceptional Kyle was, what a great future he had ahead of him, and that he had a semblance of a personality before he turned Franken-monster. It’s the seventh episode in and they are still trying to make me care about Kyle, its not working. Though I have to say that Franken-Kyle’s reaction too findin...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Who Threw The Acid?

American Horror Story: Coven
“Burn, Witch, Burn” shows Fiona successfully convincing the council that Myrtle was the culprit behind Cordelia’s attack, stealthily framing her long-time rival with the help of Queenie and Spalding. In “The Axeman Cometh” Marie denies any involvement in the assault, introducing the potential existence of a new force threatening the witches of Miss Robichaux’s, and leaving the mystery open for discussion.

Sure, there is the slight possibility that Myrtle could still be guilty of perpetrating the acid attack, or Marie could be lying to Hank about her non-role in the assault, but it works ...

Who is the next Supreme? It has been a significant question posed by the series since the first episode of the season. With Madison’s death and the subsequent reveal that she was not in fact next in line for the coveted title, the mystery remains, intriguing both the audience and the characters alike. No doubt that being Supreme is an appealing prospect for many a witch, but the potential dangers that face the witch that would ultimately dethrone Fiona are undesirable at best. So, who will be the one to fall under Fiona’s desperate wrath?

After last week’s “Burn, Witch, Burn” the show de...

Last night's episode of American Horror Story was a mix of Mean Girl antics infused with a little 'dead' from The Walking Dead. Just watch the episode if you don't believe me! In the spirit of Halloween the episode had a Halloween-ish theme, whatever that means. The show is legit based on Halloween stories- every week is Halloween in American Horror Story.

In the wake of Madison's (Emma Roberts) death, Fiona demands for her servant Spalding to clean up the dead body. He rolls the body in the rug and whisks her away.

American Horror Story: Coven
Before I delve in this week’s episode, “The Replcements”, a few words on last week’s “Boy Parts”, which I did not get the chance to review.

Following the exposition heavy premiere episode, “Boy Parts” does a good job in jumping off from where the show left off and advancing the narrative. Without the seemingly endless voice-over monologues and countless flashback scenes retelling various characters’ origin stories, the narrative takes a more lively and entertaining pace. Despite the crowded and extensive cast, there were essentially three easily digestible narrative threads in this second ...

Okay, we need to talk about this. WTF went down last night on American Horror Story? Is this episode called ‘The Replacements’ because everyone is being replaced? Oh- guess I should mention…SPOILER ALERTS!

It’s 1971, and Fiona is a young, beautiful witch. She’s having a conversation with an older woman who we find out is the supreme witch of her generation. Fiona doesn’t partake in activities with the other witches, her focus is being a supreme and proving to the elderly she has what it takes. But the old woman laughs Fiona off, reminding her what she had to go through to become a supreme....
