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!

I have updated my original review as I have finished watching American Horror Story's latest season subtitled 'Roanoke'. All I can say is that Ryan Murphy has done it again! He has crafted up yet another season of mystery, surprises, thrills and infallible engagement. American Horror Story will forever be one of the most incredible shows on television for me. I love every single moment of every single episode... it is perfection! The show's sixth season (Roanoke) is indeed my favorite so far, followed closely behind by Season 2 (Asylum) and Season 5 (Hotel; with Lady Gaga in her outstanding role of 'the Countess'- which earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Leading Actress). When it comes to the latest season 'Roanoke', I love how different it is compared to earlier seasons. I certainly loved the second half of the season when the true 'horror' of the show came to light in what I can deem to be a 'perfect' way. Each season presents an outstanding cast. Notable cast members over the seasons include: Jessica Lange (Season 1-4), Lady Gaga (Season 5-6), Sarah Paulson (Season 1-6), Evan Peters (Season 1-6), Kathy Bates (Season 3-6), Angela Bassett (Season 3-6), Denis O' Hare (Season 1, 3-6), Lily Rabe (Season 1-6), Frances Conroy (Season 1-4, 6), along with newbies Cuba Gooding Jr. (Season 6) and Adina Porter (who made a brief guest appearance in Season 1, but delivered her breakthrough role in Season 6). I could go on and on about how much I adore this show until my final breath. It is honestly incredible. As you progress through the seasons you even start to notice minor/major season connections and character crossovers between seasons- only making the show more intriguing for devoted fans to endure. Some people may be put off by the 'horror' in the title; especially those who are not a fan of the genre- don't be. American Horror Story is a show about mankind's potential for evil and destruction- aided by supernatural elements placed within a troubled environment (e.g. Season 6: Roanoke's setting is at an isolated farmhouse in the woods which has a troubled past). The realism of this television series is preserved in the highly developed characters whom I have had the pleasure of acknowledging and loving individually in each season over the years. I absolutely love American Horror Story. It has changed the way I view television. The anthology format of each season being different than the last only intrigues me and leaves me with one question... what is the theme for next season? A cruise ship? A prison? An orphanage? A cabin in the woods? That's what reels you in! The creativity of American Horror Story is absolute perfection and I honestly could not wish for a better show with a better cast. This will always be my #1 favorite show.
