Interesting but uneven anthology series.

The first season, Murder House, started off well. It seemed like someone had combined NIN music videos with classic horror movies and a fabulous cast. It disturbingly but effectively mixes some sexy moments with terrifying ones. Connie Britton and Taissa Farmiga are excellent though Britton does not appear again after this season. The living legend that is Jessica Lange is here from the begging and always brings her A game. Frances Conroy and Jan Brewer are also excellent cast members who will continue through the seasons.

I found the 2nd season (Asylum) uninteresting and didn't finish it - so I won't comment on it. Other than to say, Adam Levine? Ew.

The third season, Coven, brings a mixture of horror and history. I enjoyed the use of historical, though fictionalized, figures as characters. The racially motivated rivalry between the witches and voodoo priestesses made for an interesting thread. We also see the addition of Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett to the AHS regulars.

The 4th season, Freak Show, is good but not quite on the same level as the odd numbered seasons. Some nice casting additions including the use of people who might have been in a freak show had they been born in a different era.

For the horror-thriller genre fan, this is about as good as it gets! Monsters, ghosts, criminals, sadism, gore, the show has it all. It changes perspective every season and amazes its audience by the explicit and messed-up characters from the show, which are played by some of the most brilliant actors in the history of cinematography. Definetly a must-see!

Something that's missed for a lot of character developments in series is getting to really know the character. This show delivers that. With such incredible talents and writing, even a person not a fan of Horror could enjoy this show. This show gets a 9/10 from me. A massive mark for a massive show. Each season hits on a different theme in the Horror genre, from Ghosts to Witches and the Anti-Christ, this show isn't done yet. Each episode hasn't wasted my time, everything is relevant to the progression of the plot, with a story merging seemlessly together and multiple conclusions you'll see some great stuff on screen. I wouldn't go as far to say this show is scary, if anything, it's not even creepy. However it does do one thing that is missing from Horror A LOT these days, and that's a heavily rich and thick 'Atmosphere'. Some episodes stick with you and it does give you the craving to see more or even have a marathon, what happens in each episode (A lot happens in a single episode) gives you so much to talk about whilst you wait for the next one to air. This show gets a 9/10 from me. A massive mark for a massive show.

I loved the first and second seasons, especially the craziness of the second one. The third one was uneven, with great ideas, but with a feeling you're watching a better filmed version of Charmed. The fourth one has a good concept, and good characters, but I don't really care about anything they're trying to do.
