This is a most strange and amazing television series – with the same actors returning series to series playing different characters, sometimes even different characters within a single series. On top of this, each series is separate and yet, at some times, linked. It’s clever. The first series is in a haunted house (and with so many TV shows, the first episode is the scariest of just about everything), the second is a creepy asylum, the third a witch coven, the fourth a freak show, the fifth a haunted hotel and that’s as far as I’ve gone so far. The first intrigued me… I liked it, and it had some interesting twists, but it didn’t blow me away. But I was intrigued enough to continue on – the second series was awesome. Scary, gross, clever, intriguing, and wonderfully twisted. Then the witches. A real waste of a series, I thought, although Kathy Bates was brilliant. It came back stronger with the freak show series, but the hotel series was fabulous. I can’t help thinking that the next few series could be fabulous or absolutely terrible. Either way I’ll give it a go. Oh, and how absolutely wonderful it is to be seeing so many older actresses getting really decent, juicy, fun roles. Other show, please take note of how skilled these actresses are.
This is one crazy show and that’s why I like it! It goes to places many TV shows won’t go.
