AHS Coven

Looking Forward to AHS Freakshow

I can’t wait for the premiere of Season 4 of American Horror Story Freakshow. The cast looks great in the teasers, and I can only imagine what the writers have planned this year.

To celebrate, I’m going to post the recaps I wrote of Asylum and Coven.  They should whet our appetites as we wait for October 8…

What are you hoping to see this season?

Ready for The Walking Dead’s Return

I’m really glad I never read The Walking Dead graphic novels.  It’s not like I don’t have access–my brother in law has them all.  For once, it’s nice not having any insight.  In fact, my mom and I started watching TWD at the same time.  It was right before Season 2 was about to premiere, and we caught the tail-end of a TWD marathon and thought it looked interesting.  Getting hooked on TWD was a complete accident, and I’m glad it happened that way.

I like the idea of a spinoff version of TWD with random people with no backgrounds.  It would be nice to be able to see what’s going on elsewhere.

For the first time I haven’t paid a lot of attention to the speculation and sneak peeks on the new episodes.  It’s not that I don’t care.  This time I want to be surprised.  I recap the show for Dark Media Online, and it’s fun when I don’t know what’s coming.

And right now TWD is exactly what I want to watch.  I’m not in enough of a lighthearted mood for Doctor Who, and American Horror Story Coven was creepy but not as edge-of-your-seat as TWD is.  True Blood is just pure fun and Dracula is much more erudite.  (I’ve named these shows because I recap them, so they’re all very near and dear to my heart)  The fact is, I’m in the mood for The Walking Dead. 

I’m glad TWD is back! 

Twas the Night Before the AHS Coven Finale…

Well, the end is almost here.  Tomorrow night is the season finale of AHS Coven, and given that AHS is technically a miniseries, it’s more like a series finale.  It’s the last time we’ll see Miss Robichaux’s School in New Orleans. 

(Spoilers if you haven’t watched the last episode of AHS)

Who will survive?  With Fiona dead, along with her boyfriend the Axeman, and sweet Nan, and Angela Bassett’s amazing Marie Laveau, it would appear that the fate of the Coven lies with Queenie, Zoe, Misty Day and Madison.  Myrtle and Cordelia seem to think Zoe is the Supreme, but wouldn’t that be a bit too easy? 

We’ll have to see what happens tomorrow.  Would anyone care to venture a guess as to the new Supreme?  I’m going to say Misty Day, but that could be because I think her character is, as Kyle would say, “amaze-balls.”

Some thoughts on AHS Coven: Go To Hell

Spoilers if you haven’t watched tonight’s AHS Coven episode….

With one episode to go in the season, it looks like there’s going to be a showdown among the younger witches of the Coven.  Is it possible that there is no one Supreme?  I’m starting to wonder.  Perhaps they all rule together as a Council…or perhaps they all die trying.

I didn’t see Fiona’s death coming.  She was fading fast, but I didn’t think she’d die at the hands of her lover, even though it was clear in the last episode that she was going to bail on their agreement.  And it was fitting that the infamous Axeman died twice at the hands of the Coven.

I’m obsessing over the scene with Queenie and Papa Legba at the chicken place.  It was so creepy seeing the people in line, waiting to get their food.  I like that Papa Legba appreciates Queenie’s cunning. I like that he’s willing to work with people so long as it suits his needs as well.  I love his accent.  I love that he loves extra marshmallows in his hot chocolate.

It makes me laugh to see Kathy Bates leading the tour of LaLaurie’s house.  Can you imagine going on a tour of a famous historical site without realizing that the tour guide is the actual (former) resident of the house?  Creepy.

Next week’s episode promises to be a roller coaster ride.  Care to venture a guess as to what happens?

AHS Coven

Just got done watching tonight’s episode of American Horror Story Coven.  The recap is sent away, and now I feel like I need a nap.  This is probably the most eventful episode of the entire franchise.  Seriously, it never stops.  I feel like I just watched four hours instead of forty minutes.  It’s an incredible episode.  You’re all in for a treat.
