AHS is superbly written and acted, worthy of a five-star rating, but unfortunately I have to give it one star like many others have done, and will not change it until Google notices and speeds up the availability of the new episodes! Two days is way too long of a wait, especially for those of us that prepaid for a season pass. We gave you our money; now please deliver the product! Failing that, we should be allowed a refund.

Episode 1 started out strong, but all I can think in watching the other episodes is that no one, even if they weren't in their right mind would do these things. Ritual murder, torture, ghosts, etc. and none of it is scary.I think season 5 jumped the shark so hard that season 6 isn't able to recover. This is just bad writing.

If you love the series, skip this season. It got oddly gimmicky and fell short of every previous season. Freakshow was a stand-out for sure, but this season is really the worst so far. I'm not sure if the writers were resting on their laurels or if they thought the work was done for them (via pop star), but it is not the AHS we have come to love.
