American Horror Story. FX UK pace (Spoilers in tags please)
 
Just thought I'd add this thread as the other one is horribly spoiler filled.

Enjoy!

Just caugh the first episode their, what a weird show! Not entirely sure what to think.

Definately interesting, well interesting enough to make me want to tune in again next week, but i feel like acting (especially by the two leads) isn't great.

linkinpark875 08-11-2011 02:19

I thought it was a decent episode.

On Anytime this morning (ad and DOG free) for those that missed it or haven't watched last night's yet.

American Horror Story
 
This new series slipped in under the radar on FX last night and it looks pretty good. It also has the most unsettling title sequence ever..including True blood.

The version on Anytime on my box(HD) is full of sound dropouts every couple of seconds. I normally watch the AT versions if available but this is unlistenable, so gone with the FXHD transmission.

yup, missed the first 20 minutes so will catch it after The walking Dead on Friday night.

SillyBillyGoat 08-11-2011 11:18

You'll enjoy it, I've been following it at US pace. :)

I agree about the title sequence, it's really atmospheric. It's strange to think this is the guy behind Glee! :D (which I also love, by the way).

derek500 08-11-2011 11:36

It's on Anytime this morning.

Proper Scary
 
Great start to this Spooky new Drama....I wouldn't buy the House....and the Neighbours..... from Hell.

Tate needed Help, and not just from Ben...same with the Daughter, Violet.
Did feel at the end, it was all going Rosemary's Baby:eek:....who was that guy...in the Latex/Rubber.

Great to see Denis O'Hare, in this too.

Oh yeah, I prefer the Younger Moira.:p

Yeah mine was the same, skys ongoing audio problems are become a big joke.

Got it taped! Really looking forward to it actually, it's had good reviews and when I seen the trailer a few weeks ago I though "Oh yes please!" I love me a good horror/suspense thing :)

Residents Fan 08-11-2011 19:54

Hmm. The pilot ep of AHS was a mixed bag.

Pros:
*The actors playing the Mom (Connie Britton) and the
hippie-ish daughter (Taissa Farmiga) were good.

Jessica Lange. Her character was brilliantly bitchy and
straight of Sunset Boulevard.

The general weirdness. The ghosts are a gimp suit and a sexy French
maid (the "Haunted Sex Shop", anyone? ;) ).
It seems the house has an interesting history, which could make a good story. I liked the
idea that the dad
Spoiler


Cons:

* The dad (Dylan McDermott) came across as dull and uninteresting.

*The story was too crammed, e.g, By the end of this episode, the dad's patient had gone from
Spoiler
. :confused: It's like they used up all their interesting
ideas in the pilot.

*The editing was choppy and irritating.

*What's it about? Is it a "Don't look now?" style horror
for TV? A campy soap with horror element (like "Dark Shadows"?) Where's the focus?

2/5
I'll see if it improves next week.

hunty571 08-11-2011 22:38

But its also the guy behind Nip/Tuck, so that was kind of bizzare!!

CJClarke 09-11-2011 04:15

I liked it, even though it didn't seem to have a single original idea and was full of every haunted house horror movie cliche in the book. I also have doubts that it'll manage to sustain it's story over the course of 13 episodes (or longer if it gets a second season) without getting "samey", most haunted house horror movies barely last 90 minutes afterall. Despite that, it WAS fairly well done, i did enjoy it, and i will be back next week.

A second season has already been ordered.

The_abbott 09-11-2011 10:15

yeah I like what they did wit the maid looking different.

Certainly there was enough to come back for more next week.

NightFalls 09-11-2011 12:36

I saw the first episode, i am hooked. Considering it was the first episode i thought there would be a slow build up but loads happened, Jessica Lange was awesome.

lisa_joli 09-11-2011 13:44

well it proper scared me, shuddering at the thought of those ghosty twins!

missloo 09-11-2011 13:48

i loved it - i didn't think i would but it was really good and I am resisting the temptation to watch it online so i can watch it with hubby.

dicky123 09-11-2011 23:45

I just came across this on Anytime. Really, really loved it. Some nice, original touches. Jessica Lange is fantastic. Really looking forward to next week :) Already so many questions I need answered.

phillees 10-11-2011 07:09

I too really enjoyed the first episode, everything the trailer led me to believe.
I'm a little surprised to read a few of you not knowing anything about it, but then again am I. It's been advertised a lot on the FX channel for a few months now without actually giving a start date till of late, and if you don't normally watch this channel then ya, I can see how it could be missed. Although this is just another great FX program so I'd be surprised if you don't watch anything else on this channel.

RebelScum 10-11-2011 07:48

Quite a mess of a pilot, but that's ok, I never judge a series by its pilot so will keep watching and see if it improves.

Wasn't it!! And my wife had copied it to the planner and deleted the FX HD one!!

Oh well, catch the Friday repeat.

sall 10-11-2011 09:21

One episode and I'm hooked! Can't wait for the next one.;)
