    Another great season of American Horror Story

    Many fans of the series have labeled Coven as the worst season of American Horror Story but it's anything but. There is something to like about each season. Murder House has the strongest sense of horror. Asylum features the most dynamic character arcs which pushed the acting ability of its core cast. Coven's strength is that it is the most fun of the series and also the most consistent story wise. Everything that happened this season, including it's minor tangents were ultimately related to the story at large. Not all of what they tried to do was perfect but no season has been perfect as missteps are always taken. But these imperfections do not take away from the fact that this series is consistently well acted and refreshing in its attempts to play around with different genres and real life historical figures and incidents. It should also be noted that each of these seasons work better as a binge watch. Sometimes when waiting for a new episode each week it is easier to feel disappointed when one does not meet expectations. However if viewers are able to watch a season all at once they are able to get instant gratification and experience the story as an uninterrupted whole. Coven features a fun and often gory story about witches in which anything can and likely will happen. The inclusion of Stevie Nicks is an uneven experience but it is understandable why it might have seemed like a good idea. Coven is deftly acted, interestingly shot and has a good score. Overall this is another strong season for the series and it actually serves well as an introduction to the series for those who might be turned off by horror. It is the most accessible season because of it's lighter tone.

    This season of AHS was a little slower than the first season but with so much more to love that I can't complain. There is a lot more drama and frustration in this movie versus the 1st season. If you don't already know, these season are NOT connected. They create and whole NEW storyline but they use the same actors. Every actor in this show is so gifted in the way they can morph into a new character and perform their role so effortlessly. The some plot twists are some what expected but the last episode was a big shocker. Give it a look-see. You'll enjoy it.

    This is a show that, since day one, could not be watched week to week. I watch each season basically in one sitting. It's one of the most well thought out shows in recent memory. It's a new show each season, and it seems each season gets a little bit better, even though, as I'm watching, I tell myself it can't get much better than this. Season 4 has just begun, so I'll be watching it immediately after the final episode airs!

    I have been a die hard AHS fan. Season 1 was outstanding; Season 2 also was very good. But Season 3, was the slowest, dullest season of AHS. There's no compelling story here, just gore and an attempt to shock. And some very unconvincing and ridiculous acting by the younger actors. Jessica Lange, however, never disappoints. Kathy Bates, also was excellent, as always. I was hoping these seasoned professionals helped pulled this season from the brink of absurdity but it didn't happen. It is still a good AHS season for your collection.

    American Horror Story: Coven is a great series from Ryan Murphy. While most critics have panned the story for being 'over the top' and a bit illogical, what would you expect for a story about modern day witches trying to keep their coven/group alive in New Orleans. There are great performances by Lily Rabe, Emma Watson and Jessica Lange, plus we get the introduction of Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett. Considering the overall landscape, this witch story is something fresh in the overall glut of vampire stories.

    This series of American Horror story was the best. From the great enthrall ing visuals of the madames attic to the school. The actresses in this have critical acclaim in the film and television world. This was the best role for everyone involved. It doesn't get better than this show when it comes to the fun horror. It set a new bar and has a cult following which, I'd say is rare with dismal shows such as Once Upon A Time which falls short of anything good. Spend your money wisely.

    Story of a modern-day coven of witches. Characters are interesting and captivating. There is a struggle to find the next "supreme" (head witch) going forward and to keep the coven protected. There are some "grotesque" moments, but it is not over the top like some current horror films. We enjoyed it a lot. Ending as not as good as the continuing story or I would have given it highest possible rating.

    Don't take me wrong, I love this show. It's highly addictive and highly entertaining. However, I feel like they could have done so much more... expanded on the idea of witchcraft, magic, the occult. I was honestly expecting better special effects and more magic related scenes. It kinda let me down. I still recommend it though. It's worth a watch.
