    AHS: NYC has all the Murphy-esque signatures, and more: It's sexy, it's salacious, and it's subversive—not least because of the era and the community in which it's set. Like most seasons of this show, NYC starts strong, though it's difficult at this point to say exactly what's going on.

    “American Horror Story” has hardly been known for its restraint, which made the relative lack of bloody excess in these episodes notable, with less emphasis on the horror than the serial-killer aspect.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Horrible and I am a huge fan of pretty much every other season! Characters unlikeable, city dirty, shots dingy, pacing uneven, no good villian, multiple story lines that dont get resolved and all of our favorite actors missing. Portrays gay relationships as violent, promiscuous and short term. One female character with a fascinating subplot that gets side lined by endless vistas of violent sex only some of which is consensual and oiled up abs. I really feel that Ryan Murphy pitched his soft-core porn wet dream as a season, hired a bunch of men aged 30-55 with great abs, sprinkled some gore and violence over the violent sex and no one even noticed. So sad, there is such potential to the series and literally thousands of other great horror topics out there! I mean the main bad guy this season was AIDS! Seriously? Completely tone deaf. Makes a mockery of the thousands of gay men that died. Full Review »

And by golly they are going to push and shovel it. This is not American Horror Story this is gay-americans horror story because that's all that's represented, well that, witches, delusional crazy Christians and circus freaks, I don't want to forget them. I'm pretty much checked out and not interested any longer. There has got to be other ways to tell a horror story than pandering it to the gay community year after year and show after show, as though nobody else exists. I get that that may be the crowd here but much like Evan Peters, I'm missing in action for the duration of this season. Maybe he sick of the bull **** too. I don't know, but Im looking for a good horror series, not another lecture on equality. Because right now I'm just tuning you out and turning you off. 0.5/10 it's a show and you can watch it, however I'm not interested in it's setup or premise Full Review »
