One of the best shows there is. I hope he returns to the original cast soon cause this new casting since roanoke has stunted the once strong shows growth. Its awful since roanoke. Hotel was the last decent piece from Ryan Murphy. And 1984 or Apocalypse didnt do us any favors. They were just fake and flaky. Sorry not sorry but gus kenworthy will never be on par with Evan nor Zach quinto. And Billie lord needs acting lessons. Shes awful. Ruining my show since Cult. Yuck! Tasteless!

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.

Don't watch season 6, it's freakshow-level nonsense. Characters will lock themselves in rooms several times to keep ghosts out, just think about that. Mild spoilers, but by the finale there are about five fictional television shows presented in the episodes for us to "watch" in order to tell whatever story Ryan Murphy thinks he meant to tell.
