Pilot: Can you recall the last time Spielberg and Amblin did a good tv show? Me either. The concept here seems fun but the whole thing came off kind of predictable soap opera. It will get its four episodes to see if it fleshes out but im thinking 5 seasons of meh.

4 episodes and i cant see devoting any more time to this.

American Gothics is a mystery drama that follows a family in disrepair around a series of murders that haunted their home town in the past. The show is very slow and script is dry but there are many grade A actors within the cast. I will keep watching for the actors alone... perhaps the story and script will get better....

The pilot was not what I had expected. I am not going to watch anymore, there are other shows waiting in my queue that I would rather watch.

I have to admit that I really enjoyed American Gothic. Yes, the serial killer story line was weak and would've struggled to keep the show going for a second season, but I was hooked.

There were many elements that were brought to the surface over time that were unexpected like Jack's psychopathy and his obsession with pain and death, and who his mother really was. Jack was so creepy and even his family was scared of him (I guess he takes after Sophie)! That was something to definitely expand on further and could've been the highlight of a second season! I'd prefer a show about a child psychopath/family of psychopaths rather than one about a the secrets of a dead serial killer!

The show did start out a little slow but it is getting more and interesting. I love Antony Starr in this show. He gives it a real dark feel. The actor that plays the young boy is decidedly creepy. For me these 2 characters alone make the show worthwhile to watch. Other supporting cast are also noteworthy.

The name does not fit the show.
Also gives incorrect facts out!
If you cut a worm in half only the end with the head will survive if it still has the saddle :o)

Hmmmmm I tried watching up till ep 3 but soooooooooooooooooo boring and no likeable characters!

NOT my usual type of tv show but i was surprised that I actually liked it. The family has some really dark past and the young boy
is absolutely hysterical, he's truly going to make this show, MORE than what it actually should be. Each episode so far has you
thinking the murderer is someone then it makes you change your mind, at this point.. it could just be ANYONE but MY thoughts
are it's either the mother or the eldest daughter, the one running for mayor.

Episode 1: 7.5/10
Episode 2: 8/10
Episode 3: 9/10 (because the boy is SO funny, loved his puppet)

I think I'm going to like this show. I spent some time in Boston and it was fun to see some of the sights. The plot was a little slow, as most pilots are, but it had an interesting twist in there. I can't wait to see that the season brings.
