American Horror Story: Coven premiered this week, and boy did it come back with a bang! If one thing was made clear by the opening episode, it's that this season will be continuing, and increasing, the series trend of "can they really show this on TV!?" Now if you like happy little fairy tales, then you might not find this show appealing. But if you like horror that's dark, and brutal, and at times sickening, then boy is this the show for you.

I love the set up for this season so far, and I'm happy to see so many of the cast that we love so much back again (although I'm still hoping to see Zachary Quinto and Dylan McDermott).

Now all this said, you can't judge the whole season by a single episode, so I'll be coming back once a week to edit and update this review as necessary as the season progresses.

I would especially encourage those who stream or torrent the episodes to buy the set, in order to support the series. Not that the show is hurting for popularity, especially after the explosive success of season 2, but even so we should all try and support the creators and show encouragement for brilliant but non-mainstream shows like this.

*Spoilers Start Here*

UPDATE 10/31/2013:

Ok, so the first half of the Halloween episode just aired, and wow has the season thus far lived up to promises made in the premiere. So far we've had weird snake sex, weird Minotaur sex (well almost), weird cross-generational zombie incest, mass murder, a lynching, and the beginnings of a big old race/turf war between two clans of witches. The best way I can describe this carnival of carnage is that it's an all female Harry Potter on bath salts. That's what I've always liked about Ryan Murphy, Glee aside, he's never been afraid to "go there" on a lot of his projects, which to me, is perfect for a show like this. Horror is supposed to scare, shock, and/or disgust you, and this being the case, American Horror Story more than does its job.

From the opening scene, Kathy Bates wows mean, gritty, gory depiction of Madame Delphine LaLaurie, as she tortures her slaves ":Because she can" , which takes you back to her Misery days, and gives another award-worthy disturbing, but amazing performance. Then on to Taissa Farmiga, brought back from season 1 as she discovers her power and gets swept off to special witch school in NOLA Hogwarts style. We have Jessica Lange as the Supreme witch, bringing her A-game again as an aging witch trying to gain back her youth, as she joins her daughter played by Sara Paulson (the potion creating witch), to "help" her at her special girls' school. We get a Mean Girls/Teen Witch snarkiness of young teenage witches meeting each other for the first time, with Emma Roberts, Gabare Sidibe (Award Nominee for Precious). Denis O'Hare as the strange mute butler. Also get brief glimpses in this episode of Evan Peters, Angela Bassett as our resident VooDoo Queen, and Francis Conroy. I think this could be the best season of yet of this show. I like that this series while fictional uses factual elements from our history in their depiction of horror. Great writing with their cut and dry snarky one-liners. "Maybe I'll drop a house on you". "That one there - she's smarter than all of you put together", "Is that your superpower, sensing dehydration" "The light hit him just fine". This show, like other shows on the F/X channel that allows all this graphic-ness also brings real issues of everyday life to light. If you are a horror fan, I think you will enjoy it.

Wow! Just WOW!

I'm really thrilled with the overall story telling of American Horror Story. The first two seasons told great stories and it looks like this one is off to a bang! Kathy Bates! OH MY!! What a fantastic role for her! I'm just beyond thrilled and I can't wait to see how she does through the rest of the season.
I like the fact that AHS tells one story per season. It kind of reminds me of the "Series" method of British television. You have time to get to know the characters and their attributes while the story is ongoing and you don't have to wait for the next season to finish the story.

I really like the fact that they're recycling cast members to fill the roles. They each pull of their various roles from the previous seasons so well and starting the new season - all I can really say is just WOW. I'm really excited to see where this one goes! It's going to be a fantastic journey!

American Horror Story was something very different when it debuted, and Season 1 succeeded in not only making an old-school horror tale work as a television series, it actually made a haunted house story that was creepy and utterly compelling. Both accomplishments were impressive. Other than the Walking Dead, when was the last time there's been a decent horror series that made it to season 2? And haunted houses... reside in the pop culture scrapyard. The fact they embraced the idea like they did, reinvigorating a tired sub-sub-genre with multi-generational narrative layering and out=of-left-field twists like the boy next door who turns out to be an undead school-shooter. Asylum was arguably even better, but far darker. Watching it I was continually amazed that the minds behind 'Glee' were responsible for the wonderfully twisted craziness that was unfolding: possessed nuns, a nazi doctor turning physically healthy patients into quadruple amputees and cannibalistic pigmen, a drunken mother superior with murder on her conscience. Sometimes the convoluted plot seemed close to going off the rails, but they managed to get it together. Coven might be the best of the three seasons; it's definitely the most accessible. Again, the writers take a subject that has pretty much flatlined in film and TV, and set out to make a series about witches that doesn't just not suck, doesn't just appeal to sulky tweenaged girls, but reinvents the way people think about witch stories, and make something great. Once again, they pull it off. Jessica Lange, like much of the cast, has returned each year playing a different character.Read more ›
