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

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly has a fun cover story on the show. (But don't read it until you've seen last night's ep. Spoilers abound.)

And next week: Zachary Quinto.

I love the kitchen-sink approach this show has towards hanging onto our interest at all costs. Look, it's Sal Mineo's murder! Now we're in the Roaring 20s, now people are threatening lawsuits, now the guy with the crazy face is back and thwacks the pregnant mistress upside the head! Never a dull moment.

I felt sorry for Dylan McDermott, it was like he was transported to the Planet of the Insane Bitches. Every female in this show is a nightmare except for the cool daughter, but now she's going to be responsible for keeping the family stupidly living in The House from Hell? Or maybe my prediction that Vivian must stay in the house or the fetus will die is coming horribly true (I meant that as a joke, honest!)

Sneak peek at Zach Quinto next week (hey that's a poem!)

I didn't watch it so I can't vouch for spoileryness.

Sal Mineo was just the start: the next real-life sleazy Hollywood murder case to be integrated into story will be...

Ended up really liking this show. It's ridiculous but a lot more entertaining than The Walking Dead is for me. Sometimes it feels like someone else has the remote and is changing channels randomly but in a fun way.

This show is utterly insane, crazy and dementedly addicting. I love it.

So who was already buried in the grave? Was that Creepy Roaring 20s Baby? I'll bet what happened is that Creepy Baby died or was killed by an insane maid and Frankenstein Doctor kept one of the aborted Hollywood Starlet fetuses alive and nursed it to full term in a jar so that it could take Creepy Baby's place.

^ I thought they made it pretty clear that it's the creepy maid (Moira).

All I saw was a scrap of white cloth. Couldn't tell if it was the baby's cap or the maid's apron.

But afterwards Jessica Lange told the maid she's now stuck there forever, implying it will be a lot harder for her to be free now that her bones are covered with all that stuff.

I didn't really get that part - why should a ghost care about something physical like concrete? If it was magical concrete with a voodoo spell, that I could see. Oh well, expecting logic from this show is a lost cause.

Just one example would be the CW show Supernatural. On that show, it's established that one must burn the bones of a dead person to send the ghost/spirit on to the afterlife. So it could be something like that. Someone's a lot less likely to get to the bones to do whatever needs to be done to them to set her free.

To be fair, that's an old ghost story cliche, the idea being that the ghost cannot be laid to rest until its bones are discovered and given a proper burial. (As opposed to being buried in the backyard by your murderer.)

The idea is not that the concrete is stopping Moira from leaving, it's that nobody is ever going to find her remains now that there's an entire concrete patio and gazebo on top of it!

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

Great episode last night... Missed the first 15 minutes, unfortunately, so it looks like I'll have to watch on-demand..

Loved the gay couple.. Zack Quinto was pretty scary at the end there! Can't wait to see the resolution, especially now that the girlfriend is back..

And quite the ending! So we now know why, or at least how the departed stick around in and around the house and that they can leave the premisis if they want.
