maybrick, I'm surprised you think AHS is more overrated than Breaking Bad, because hardly anyone knows about AHS, sure it may seem like a lot of people due because of the internet and whatever, but a lot of my friends, family, people I work with or have class with don't watch the show and only know about it because I watch it. It's still finding it's audience I feel like, but after this season, everyone will probably know about it.

What's so great about the show is that you can hate one season, but love the next because each season is it's own entity. One of my friends loved season 1 but hated Asylum, though he's looking forward to Coven.

You have to admit though the production values (art direction, cinematography, etc tech work), talent, and acting on the show is top notch though.

Why wouldn't you recommend the show to someone? Pretty much everyone I've recommended the show has loved it or has at least loved season 1 (they haven't seen Asylum yet).

The pretty creepy new main titles for this season! I think it looks fantastic, it's dark and moody.

From other things i've read that Ryan Murphy is drawing from Suspiria for some visual inspiration, this may be a season y'all all might want to catch!
That was very cool. I can't wait to buy the second season blu ray and finally catch up with this series, but I'm sad that I'll have to wait another year to see Coven (no cable).

Official Trailer!! Kathy Bates is in it
From what I've read online, early reviews say this season is the best one yet!!

Season 3 premieres tonight. Just a heads up, and also, be sure your DVR is set. The new subtitle ("Coven") may cause your DVR to not record if it's set to record "American Horror Story: Asylum")

We've been having a late summer heat wave, last weekend it was sunny and in the 90s. But suddenly today, the weather has turned cold and gloomy and rainy. Perfect night for AHS. Might even have to pop some corn for the season opener...

My film class doesn't get out till 10:20 so I'll have to wait till midnight to watch it

But, I hope everyone that's watching enjoys it! I've read a few reviews, the Bloody Disgusting one being the most glowing. It's supposed to be damn good and much more focused than the past two seasons. And Kathy Bates is supposed to be absolutely despicable but perfect too

Well, yeah, you can always say that about the first episode or two of an AHS season. But usually 7-8 eps in it goes totally off the rails.

You won't be confused at all. Completely new story, completely new characters, completely new setting. Every season of this show is a totally new entity

Eh I loved both seasons all the way through.

BUT. Tonight's premiere was awesome I loved it.
Veryyy different, but in all the right ways.
Kathy Bates was excellent, she's wayy past Annie Wilkes. She was my favorite part of the episode.
Some shots (especially at the frat party) felt veryyy Suspiria-esque.

Yup, looks like another fun year coming up. And once again, they push the envelope with a really graphic scene featuring
Spoiler:
death by sex with Zoe

I thought the 1st episode was great. It flew right by!

I love Zoe's power.

Not exactly useful in a combat situation though, is it? Since it does take a minute or two (for me at least, although Taissa Fermiga could shorten that I think) before she's able to deploy it.

I take back what I said about this show. At least about season 1. We ended up grabbing it used. I watched three episodes last night and I'm into it. Is the consensus that season 2 is as good as or better/worse than the first season?

I actually love the first 2 seasons, and I love that each season is a different storyline, so if you miss one season, that is okay. Can't believe that the two guys who created Glee are the ones who also created American Horror Story. Two completely different series.
