I am, thanks to the internet dark patch resultant from our recent move and general business of relocating an entire flat’s contents (my flat’s contents) from one place to another, running a little late with my reviews. Fortunately, American Horror Story is a week behind due to some American thing. Thanksgiving, or some such.
But anyway, we are well and truly into the season now, and to say that it’s gone batsh*t crazy feels like an understatement. As ever this series has assembled an excellent cast, given them varied characters to develop, and let them run riot.
And, as ever, it hasn’t all worked. The approach is something along the lines of throwing everything at the story and seeing what sticks. It may not be the best approach, but it does work, and now is about the point where a coherent storyline starts to emerge.
So after a week’s hiatus, what does Freak Show have to offer us?
