How good can this be on a non-pay network? 80's slasher films were all about the slashing, not the story. Wouldn't they have to cut-away/no-blood?

Regardless, it gets points for using The Motels.

I'm guessing you've never watched any of the prior 8 seasons of AHS. They don't shy away from showing shocking, bloody scenes.



I lost interest in mid-season five (the one with Lady Gaga and vampires).

The last two seasons were pretty bad. The anti-Trump thing was just played out and the futuristic one just started nowhere and went nowhere. I really don't think either season seemed "fun". It was like they were so tied up in scoring political points that they forgot to just do the regular crazy.

Nope, you got me there. I don't watch much TV anymore. I thought stabbing and blood resulted in a "R" rating for movies, yet they do it on cable TV now? Interesting.

Maybe I'll check it out on Amazon.

The season before that anti-Trump one sucked too. I feel Hotel was the last good season they had.

Roanoke got a lot of points from me for trying a lot of new things, in terms of presentation and story. I didn't love it, but I really appreciate a series that takes chances.

I thought the one a couple seasons back made fun of Trump people and anti-Trump people. But it wasn't very good unless clowns really, really creep you out.

Apocalypse was basically Coven Part II. If you loved that season, it would be hard not to love this one. I thought Coven was pretty good, so I felt about the same way about Apocalypse. It was pretty good.

The first two seasons were really something. Since then it's been hit and miss, but not formulaic. They try different things and I appreciate that. So maybe this will be decent, too.

I thought Coven was the worst season they did, so that does kinda explain why I thought last season was so bad.

I did really like Roanoke. It took a lot of chances and turned out really well. I haven't watch it again, I should do that now that it's on Netflix.

I thought Hotel had some good ideas mixed in there, but never seemed to explore any of them enough for them to be great. I didn't mind all the nudity at all, that was nice. Heh.

My wife and I really liked season 1. It was just great and had a great cast. We kept watching each season until finally falling off during the Hotel one. I don't even know how far behind we are now, but I think 2 or 3 seasons. Roanoke was cool, but it did feel like it had a lot of filler stuff.

This season has me intrigued, because it appears to be inspired by 80's slasher flicks, which I love to no end. All the promotional material looks like a rip off of Friday the 13th. But since the ownership rights of that franchise are in a never-ending hell, I am down to get back into AHS. However, they got super political and super left-leaning over the years so I can only stomach so much of that, so we'll see if they keep that up.
