    American Horror Story

    Did anybody else watch this? I thought the first episode was pretty good. I think there's some potential in the concept of a horror series where the creepiness can be developed over the course of a season.

    Re: American Horror Story

    i also thought it was good stuff....i did have troubles figuring out if they were dreaming at times, or it was the real deal.

    That maid is hot.

    It looks like to me that the patient, the neighbor woman, and the maid are ghosts?

    That seems like it makes a lot of sense.

    I found it to be a little weird and hard to follow, but it has potential. FX is putting out some pretty good stuff, IMO.

    Re: American Horror Story

    I liked it as well. But, I was hoping it was going to be a series of self-contained shows. I thought that would be better suited for this sort of genre. That said, however, this type of show would be pretty easy to fail at; it could easily become very cheesy. I think FX did a wonderful job avoiding that outcome with the pilot.

    Re: American Horror Story

    I thought it looked good at first, but as I saw more and more commercials, it looked more and more dumb to me. I ended up not even watching the pilot after I saw it was by the same guy that did Nip/Tuck (not a fan of that show).

    This.

    The show sucked. Just as Nip/Tuck did.

    Re: American Horror Story

    This show has been pretty damn solid. It is seriously twisted. The girl being locked in the mirror closet was messed up.

    Jessica Lange is fantastic in her role. Her character is so delightfully warped and she pulls it off really, really well.

    I've been entertained. Good so far.

    Re: American Horror Story

    the first few episodes were good but after that it kinda lost some luster until the finale. not sure i'll watch next season.

    Re: American Horror Story

    I'll watch next season just to see if the format works. If they try to re-tell the same story in a new location with new characters, I'll probably tune out. Hopefully they can keep it edgy though.
