Re: American Horror Story (FX) 1x01 Pilot (Grading/Discussion)

Wow, that was a LOT of fun! It's like they said, let's get a bunch of good actors and have them do some really CRAZY shit. Sure, it's a mess and there's too much ridiculous haunted-house BS. I was laughing more than I was hiding behind a pillow, but laughing means I'm being entertained, right?

Considering how DULL DULL DULL the new TV shows are on broadcast, AHS is a real breath of fresh air, the one new show where I know I won't be bored.

My favorites are Jessica Lange and Evan Peters (I remember spotting him in a nothing role on Invasion and thinking, "that kid really has something, even if he's being wasted here.") But everyone is interesting.

Kudos to the writers for having kid characters who don't make me want to throw the TV out the window every time they come on screen. Terra Nova, take note.

I'm amazed the dog survived the episode. I wonder if the dog's continuing survival will become a running joke?

Though my wife telling me how hot Dylan McDermott was during his nude scenes got a little annoying.
I'm sure we'll all get sick of him wagglin' his butt around and they'll have to stop it. Eventually.

Too true. I wonder how they'll handle the plausibility problem when the ghosts issue become too severe even for white people to ignore.

Maybe something like, Vivien has to keep living in the house or she'll have another miscarriage. Sure, that's stupid but the great thing about this story is, stupidity isn't a fault because it's all pretty stupid already.
