  The weirdest first episode of any show I've seen!

| | See all Kevin1075's reviews (754)

I blind bought this a while back out of curiosity and honestly after watching the very first episode I thought it was straight up THE most bonkers pilot episode of a show I had seen.

But I wanted to keep watching and so I did, and really ended up enjoying it a lot (I only give it three stars because actually I think the second season shows up season 1 a little bit by having a lot more thematic content and elements) thanks to having enough twists and turns to keep me viewing.

Led by the tremendous Connie Britton and Jessica Lange and supported by a large cast it's a sexy, thrillery, scary horror series with top notch production values and performances, but it's not necessarily anything very deep. That's not a problem at all, but I think season 2 is where things pick up much more strongly.

  A Complete Mess but Strangely Entertaining

From the very start American Horror Story is an absolute mess. Every episode see's the writers throw event after event on screen resulting in a script and direction that are all over the place as well as a plot with more holes in it than Swiss cheese. Despite the fact that this should by all rights make the show unwatchable I continued viewing all the way through to the finale as within a few episodes I did genuinely want to find out about the shows central mystery and it could certainly never be described as boring.

Try not to think about it too deeply and you'll probably enjoy yourself.

  Unexpected pleasure!!

| | See all DLR1965's reviews (35)

After reading various reviews of AHS and hesitating as to whether to watch, it never mind buying it.....I decided to sucumb and do both!
I was hooked from episode one and ended up watching all twelve over a 2 day period!
The comparison between 'Twin Peaks' initially put me off, although I was relieved to find that AHS is a masterpiece within it's own right!
The storyline is great as are the performances of the cast.....and the fact that there are various characters both dead and alive, keeps the tension and stroylines flowing.
Highly recommended!!

Wow this is absolutely brilliant true it has shades of Twin Peaks but is also its own thing gripping, scary and suitably weird this will surely become a cult classic, watch it NOW before the second season start.

I agree with the previous review relating this show to Twin Peaks. It definitely has that 'what on earth is going on?' factor throughout but all is revealed sooner or later. Very interesting storyline and fascinating characters; overall I was impressed with the show. It'll definitely keep you hooked and I just can't wait for season 2.

  American horror story

| | See all briand's reviews (12)

Absolutely brilliant american horror series. Being hooked on it since episode one. Jessica Lange, superb as the evil next door neighbour. This show is a cross between , twin peaks and texas chain saw massacre. Great acting, can't wait to see how it concludes.
