The acting is superb and the character (even some of the bad guys) are just loveable. This and Longmier has been the best "Western" themed shows that I've seen on the tube over the past 5 years.
The bad: there ain't no more seasons after this year! Shame....truly.… Full Review »

For example with most of the humans dead there would be little reason to fight over anything after the inital chaos because there would be no want for resources and order wouldnt be too hard to re-establish because who wants to live in a perpetual mad max environment. Its not like anything but humans died off so there would be plenty of everything left in abundance for everybody that was left. After the initial shock it would be a veritable garden of plenty much like how it was after the Black death for the Europeans. As a side if the people left were immune to the disease then in the end the problem pretty much resolved itself before the show ever took place. But yea if you can look past the part where you brain tries to think then its an enjoyable show. 7/10 would watch again.… Full Review »
This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The fourth season of American Horror Story had a lot of promise at the start but it got weak at the end.
Its main problem was the plot and the way how it was narrated. In this season’s plot, a group of freak show performers have to survive the odds. It doesn’t sound exciting at all but that’s not the real problem. The real problem was that the writers don’t know how to narrate its plot into a 13 episode story. The strongest point of the plot was the antagonist of the first half of the season named Twisty the Clown. But when he was killed off in the middle of the season, the antagonist title is given to Dandy Mott which he showed a lot of promise to be a much more scarier villain than Twisty the Clown but he ended up being a spoiled brat.
The nowhere going plot also affected the character development this season. Like Dandy Mott, a lot of characters showed a lot of promise that they could be complex written characters but they ended up being underdeveloped thanks to its shallow plot narrative.
The shining light of Freak Show was its acting performance. I would like to highlight Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Finn Wittrock, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, John Carroll Lynch and of course, Jessica Lange. It’s sad that they’re not given much to do with their characters but at least they tried their very best on what’s given to them.
Another good thing about Freak Show was the way how it was directed and shot. The cinematography really feels like it’s set in the 50s.
Despite everything that’s wrong with it, I still enjoyed watching Freak Show and that’s why I rated this season a bit higher than I should have but its flaws cannot go unnoticed. I hope they improve its story telling next season and even if they didn’t, they better make it entertaining at least.… Full Review »
