It's just so scary, to the point that I don't think I can continue watching - I'm wayyy behind - at the beginning of season 2 - and given that I grew up reading Stephen King and loving horror stories, I just can't understand why this show gets to me so much that I can't watch. It still gets five stars because I know it's excellent and Jessica Lange is outstanding - I feel like jumping ahead a little to see Matt Bomer (*drools*) but am too scared...yep, I'm a wuss!!! :)

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!

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

A show with "horror" in the title has to be scary and sure enough, American Horror Story is. An anthology series that serves up excellently done stories each season, you always end up coming back for more. But you'll find that there seems to be a declining quality season to season. Despite this, AHS is incredibly well-acted and well-written.

One of the most twisted series I have ever watched. It is so creative and can be quite f***ed up, but I always want to watch more. The actors are fantastic and I like that it changes story lines every season.
