Hah, that was great! This show just gets better and crazier every week.

Zachary Quinto was, of course, excellent. I hope he goes full-on Joan Crawford with the red apples issue next week.

I look forward to meeting Frankenbaby in the near future (next week? please???)

Poor Ben, he was pretty flustered being propositioned by a gay guy and eventually he's going to find out it was a dead gay guy to boot.

I loved Ben's reaction to Undead Zombie Mistress at the front door. SLAM! That should solve things.

So what kind of critter did the nurse see on the ultrasound? My money is on Spongebob Squarepants although I wouldn't rule out Frankenbaby Jr.

This show is so awesome and so amazing at once. I simply can't explain it. I don't think I've seen anything like this before.

I enjoyed this week's episode quite a bit. I'm still not sure what to make of this show, but I'm just going to roll with it. I wonder if the realtor is a ghost or connected with the ghosts as well? I was expecting the 'real' fluffer to show up, and maybe they will in part two, but until that time I got to wonder if she isn't also in league with Quinto and his lover.

ARGH! What an ending. I keep on thinking Tate is actually dead, but I'm sure he's probably alive. However, there should be an explanation for why he knows so much about the house and seems to be in cohorts with Constance and Moira.

Of course, perhaps expecting some sort of rational explanation with this show is asking for too much.

Also, is it just me or does anyone else find it just a tad peculiar that soon after Zachary Quinto comes out of the closet and he's playing a gay man? I know he was cast and filmed the episode months before he came out, but I thought it was a little amusing how his first role after coming out involves him portraying a gay guy.

I was also pretty shocked and upset to see what happened to Adelaide, but I have a sneaking suspicion that she's not completely gone from the show.

Sounds a bit like Twin Peaks on speed with horror element added. May have to on-demand this after all...

I did wonder how the heck do you manage to have ghosts on your payroll. That's pretty cool! Maybe the realtor is bullshitting about how she's poor and lives in some dump in an unattractive neighborhood and she's really a witch who commands whole armies of ghosts to do her bidding. There's something about the actress that's kind of witchy...

Or maybe Zach & Gym Rat Boyfriend killed the real fluffers and took their place?
I keep on thinking Tate is actually dead, but I'm sure he's probably alive.
He better be alive, the proportion of dead characters to live ones on this show is starting to get a bit out of hand. If Adelaide is really dead, she's going to be joining the ghost legions as well and good luck keeping her out of the house then!

PS, either Zach is a big draw or word of mouth is kicking in, or both. Or maybe it was Twilight as a lead-in, in any case, series high ratings this week!

Part 1 of the two-part Halloween episode of FX’s American Horror Story drew 2.2 million viewers in adults 18-49 in Live+Same Day, up 16% from last week and a series high, surpassing the series premiere, which posted 2.0 million in Live+Same Day. AHS was helped by its lead-in last night, the broadcast premiere of Twilight, which delivered 1.5 million 18-49 viewers.

Good news:FX Renews American Horror Story for a second season

I've yet to watch it. It's piling up on my DVR and I just haven't had time to watch it yet. Looking forward to it.

Great news! Thanks for sharing... And for those of us who continue to forget to set the DVR, I believe FX is showing the first four episodes back to back tonight.

That should've been "so awful and so amazing at once."

I did that with “Walking Dead” and had a marathon before the new season started. A great way to enjoy a show.

You mean you don’t set it to record all first-run episodes? Is that option a directv option or for all dvr’s. Gotta say, it’s great to not have to worry, see the recorded playlist, and see the to-be-taped stuff. And the app lets me set to record things on my phone. I’ve even used that app a couple of times.

Yes, I watch a lot of tv. Leftover from when we had NO money and our main forms of entertainment was sex and tv.

I watched the first four episodes today.

Very interesting. Bizarre. Creepy.

What is up with Jessica Lange? She's gone wildly over the top...



The whole thing is just so brutal. You just can't take your eyes off of it.

Now hopefully DirecTV and Fox can get their shit together.
