And I haven't finished the episode, but at least one other new ghost has been added. Guess what...who gives a rats ass? The husband is loathesome. So is the wife. Starting to soooooooo not care. And the scene where the basketballers notice the dumped body...and 90% of the dialogue is 'yo'. Wow, that's some writing. This show is LAZY and starting to get really boring. Gonna need a strong finish to salvage this one.

    I'll give you that last weeks episode sorta went over the melodrama line, but boring?

    And tonight's episode was freaking awesome - tied some ends that you wouldn't have expected, and opened up some doors that you didn't know where even there. The one thing, above all others, that I enjoy about this show is how it sticks to its ghost mythology so well that while you don't know the rules, you can perfectly understand the logic behind them as you go along. And they are in accordance to the mythology that surrounds "real" hauntings, whether you believe in them or not - it's a well researched and reasoned show.

    All you can ever ask of something in the fantasy/sci-fi/horror realm is that it sticks to the logic it creates in its own world. Sadly most don't, but this show has stuck to its guns from the opening shot of the first episode, and everything that has happened has managed to make sense AND keep you guessing. That is damn near impossible to do in episodic television, and there are always going to be some momentary missteps along the way.

    Mena Suvari (who is not aging well) was one for certain, but the notion that the Black Dahlia died during an illegal abortion and was butchered post-death to throw off the fuzz is an interesting twist. Granted it isn't possible, given the level of torture that was inflicted on the real Short - such as that her stomach contents showed that she had been forced to eat her own feces - but its creative license that I am willing to put up with.

    There was one line in tonights show that made perfect sense, when one character asks another "why can I finally see you now" and the other answers "you are finally ready - you are on the cusp" not only answers a lot of the "why is that happening"s, but opens the door for all kinds of possibilities. I can't freaking wait for next week.

    I wasn't avoiding responding to this, just hadn't watched the episode till this morning. I stick to my guns, the past few weeks have been repetetive and i.m.o. boring. The Dahlia thing seemed to be a poor excuse to get a Mena Suvari guest shot in for some reason. I was wondering at that point if they were going to shoehorn in Houdini's ghost. or maybe the Lindbergh baby...

    I get what you are saying about a show like this establishing rules and playing by them, but I don't think they have thought it out that completely. I think there are still vague areas where they can sweep plot strands under the carpet. But that's neither here nor there. The biggest problem I had with the past few episodes was that they seemed to stop telling the story. The first five or six were full of sly little reveals and it helped to propel things. But lately they have relied heavily on flashbacks that change/rewrite things we thought we knew, which was more annoying than revelatory. I still think they introduce things and walk away from them almost entirely. The security employee especially. They hint that he has some significance yet he disappears for episodes. Maybe it was a red herring, maybe it was simply to establish the wife's possible affair, whatever...it was handled clumsily. I haven't given up on the show, because I think there is something good here...I just think they lost their way for a few.
    That being said, this weeks episode put things firmly back on track. The story is moving forward again, instead of the constant unecessary flashbacks. I still think the possibility that one of the twins is the Anti-Christ is a stretch(as well as the twins having 2 seperate fathers) but I am willing to allow that because this is a horrorshow. I think the reveal was very cool and really sad(btw, Tate and Violet are well acted and possibly the best part of the show). Also, who in their right mind would allow Ben & Vivien to have MORE kids, they are the worst parents ever. So yeah, while I still think the prior 2 or 3 were more filler than anything I am glad I stuck with the show because, as last weeks episode showed, there is something(potentially) really good here.

    FX Renews THE LEAGUE for Fourth Season

    Should be no surprise. I have no horse in this race, but I cannot help but feel I am missing something by not watching this.

    BD Horror News - TV: [Next On] 'American Horror Story' 01.11 Preview; Actual House For Sale!

    AWESOME...the actual house is for sale

    In other brief news, the setting for numerous nightmarish events on the horror series is on the market for a cool $4.5 million by real estate agent Joe Babajian. (Let's all chip in and buy it together!) The six-bedroom, five-bath abode covers 10,440 sq. feet and rests on a lot that is nearly 30,000 sq. ft. Located at 1120 Westchester Place in Los Angeles, the Alfred F. Rosenheim mansion is described as an "irreplaceable masterpiece comprised of a 3-story main house plus a grand ballroom currently used as a recording studio." They add, "This residence evokes the quality and grandeur of a bygone era."

    Those of you worried, filming won't be affected as Connie Britton, who plays Vivien, revealed in an interview earlier this year that while the pilot was filmed was on location, the following episodes were shot on an exact replica. THR reports.

    Man...American Horror Story was awesome last night. Finally...a pay-off. So creepy, especially the 'thing in the darkness' at the beginning. And hey...childbirth, what a beautiful thing...sheesh! Looking forward to the finale next week.

    FX Lines Up Unscripted Late Night Comedy Series with Russell Brand

    Here’s the press release:

    LOS ANGELES, December 15, 2011 – FX has closed a deal with acclaimed actor/comedian Russell Brand for six half-hour installments of an unscripted late night series (untitled), which will debut in the spring of 2012, announced Nick Grad, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, FX.

    These will feature Brand’s unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture. The six installments will be shot in front of a live audience and the format will draw heavily on interaction with that audience.

    “We’re very excited to add Russell Brand’s bracingly funny, original, and honest voice to the FX comedy line-up,” said Grad. “We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller’s ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience.”

    The series is produced by FX Productions in association with Branded Films and Dakota Films. This marks the first television deal for Branded Films. Executive Producers are Russell Brand, Troy Miller, and Nik Linnen. Miller also serves as Director of the series.
    Ok, this is going to alienate a lot of people who understandably can't stand him. His appearances on the Howard Stern show tell me different. Guy is at his best just sitting and talking instead of studios trying to shoehorn him into movies. Being Fx, it will be edgier than a normal network show...so I am actually looking forward to this.
