Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

I really do wonder what direction season 2 will go in? Yes we have little satan but where else will it go.

I just came across an article that reveals the shocking show-altering direction of Season 2. Here it is for you to read: http://www.tvline.com/2011/12/americ...on-2-spoilers/

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

I'm not sure whether they've written themselves into a corner or not...they can't introduce a new family to the house as major characters because they have too many major characters to handle now, and killing them all means they've all got job security.

The ideal solution is for Billie Dean to move into the house and run her psychic reality show out of there. A Ghost Hunters show that has real ghosts! SyFy would be green with envy.

I didn't quite figure out the conversation between Nora and Vivien - too much mumbling - was the upshot that Ben's son survived? The whole Xmas tableau with the happy family and the tree suggests that the kid is the Second Coming, and that the direction for the show will be to have Satanbaby fight Jesusbaby for dominion of the world. That certainly has some entertaining and loopy possibilities for S2.

(I just took a peek at Joe Washington's spoiler link - uh, I think the showrunners might be making a big fat mistake there - this could turn out to be one of those cases of a show that has a solid first season and then goes straight to hell, in this case both metaphorically and otherwise.)



Here's another article with a bit more information...

The baby survived long enough, a breath or two, to die after it was born--which qualifies it for ghosthood, I guess.

It's a ghost baby now.

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

I guess I wasn't thinking that was an issue, that it matters whether the kid died in the womb or out of it, since either way, he's in the house.

That just makes the existence of the second twin pointless - the entire season is just an exercise in pointlessness. All they did is to hire an engaging cast to enact a bunch of sensationalistic plot twists to keep the audience from changing the channel but that ultimately added up to nothing.

The kid's a ghost baby, they're all dead, the Harmons haven't solved any of their issues that they had at the beginning, unless the message is that death solves everything. Wow, lazy.

Now I know why people were warning me when the season began that these writers have a bad reputation from Nip/Tuck. They didn't really tell a story at all. They just took a premise and ran it into the ground. This isn't a TV series, it's a con game.

So, any speculation about this?

That would suck. I voted No. Going with a different premise or plotline while using some of the existing cast members would be a huge gamble. It almost sounds like an anthology series, a la Twilight Zone.

While it is a big gamble, I actually think this could be pretty cool. This is essentially what Heroes should have done right? Maybe not the part with the same actors playing different characters.

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

Whatever they do, they better keep Jessica Lange. She was the absolute best part of the show.

The actress playing Violet greatly improved her acting--or getting into her character--over the season. Of course, the roughness in her acting at the start could’ve been down to the actress not being directed right...or the director not knowing which way the show was going so he couldn’t direct her right...or Murphy not knowing which way the show was going so he couldn’t tell the director.

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

I'd be happy for each season to exist within its own continuity, and I'm perfectly happy to see some of the same actors return as different characters, as long as Jessica Lange is one of them. The woman's a powerhouse.

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

I think that after the Season Finalle the Jessica Lange pretty much moved to the top of the cast. considering that:

(Murphy confirmed that current leads Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott will not be back, at least not as series regulars.)

Yes, Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a TV drama anf the Show itselft for best show although I have a feeling it won't win best show. Glad it and JL are nominated though.

Sounds like the creator wants to pull off what the creator of Heroes wanted to do. Always a risky gamble to have mostly new cast one season to the next. Maybe we can follow burned guy in prison. A haunted prison show, like OZ only with lots of ghosts running around killing people.

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

I'm glad to see they're taking the risk. Look what happened to Heroes when the creator's wishes were ignored.
