Each season is a different story. Usually the same actors but they play different roles. A nice fresh unique show idea. Turn the lights off and don't miss an episode.

Amazing Cast, Concept & Format! As long as they can keep tackling classic horror story lines with continuing to book great actors (Lange, Bates, Peters, Quinto, etc..) we could see this show reach 7 or 8 seasons. Evan Peters is a revelation and Jessica Lange is a class act.

The first season was a little confusing, but it broke ground for the others. I love the rotation of the actors into different roles, and all of them are superb. Jessica Lange is always fascinating, no matter what she plays. And Kathy Bates couldn't be a better pick. Even the not-so-well-known cast members are standouts. The scripting is done so well that you can't figure out what's coming (that's my standard for a 5-star rating - if I can't puzzle out how it ends or what the actors are going to say next - it has to be unpredictable & often shocking). And who can get over that weird opening music & reference imagery for that season - just amazing. Can't wait for Freak Show! And it doesn't disappoint - just gets weirder & weirder. Sorry they killed off the creepy clown & Kathy Bates' character, though.

this season will be out of this world! cant wait to see what else they have in store for this season.

If you are just starting this show DO NOT START THIS ONE!
They are all connected somehow and you will catch on to how if you start from the beginning!

This is honestly the most incredible show to ever be on television. The series captures the complete essence of creativity aided by an outstanding cast (Especially: Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe, Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates). This show is an absolute beauty with each season being an individual story with its own beginning, middle and end. Season 2 (Asylum) was indeed my favorite season, followed by Season 5 (Hotel)- in which Lady Gaga debuted to television as 'the Countess', in a blaze of glory; that earned her a Golden Globe award. The character development is on point as is the story line. American Horror Story isn't just any old horror program, it revolves around the human capacity for evil and the ways people react to different and peculiar situations (settings). American Horror Story is and will continue to be my #1 favorite show until the day I die. Thank you so much Ryan Murphy for crafting this masterpiece :)

Love the variety of each season, it makes it a stand alone show that's so cool and creepy.

Second Season Asylum: I enjoyed it but it could have been done better, the cast kept me intrigued though! 4/5
Third Season Coven: I LOVED IT 5/5
Four Season Freak Show:I began watching it but hated WAITING for the next episode so I'm waiting to watch it in completion
