American Horror Story - Coven

http://www.fxnetworks.com/ahs

The third season starts tonight, which I have been anticipating. I like the ensemble cast featuring strong female leads like Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and Emma Roberts.

Rate and discuss. What say you?

EDIT: Possible spoilers

Cool, reckon that means it'll start in the UK within the next couple of weeks (probably just in time for Halloween which is when seasons 1 and 2 started over here as far as I'm aware)

Really looking forward to it, even though Asylmum's resolution was a bit meh.

The Kathy bates stuff is entertainingly stomach churning.

Not liking the teen coven.

I think really it's the idea of setting it in the present that I don't like.

Who knew that Taissa Farmiga had such a killer vagina. Who's next on her vagenda?

So far the young witches looks to be the least interesting storyline of the season. I'm much more looking forward to Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett go at it all season than whatever is going on with these girls.

I have to find time to watch this. It is on our dvr, but I promised Hubby that I wouldn't watch it without him. He's at work, I have the day off...

I'm not liking my chances here!

Re: American Horror Story - Coven

I loved season 2 but I think that this season will top it.

Ratings: Coven Scares Up Horror Story Record

American Horror Story: Coven cast a record-breaking spell on viewers.
The third chapter in FX’s creeptastic anthology bowed Wednesday to a series-high 5.54 million total viewers, a double-digit surge over the franchise’s previous record of 3.85 million.

On the demo front, the episode attracted 3.87 million 18-49ers and 2.34 million 18-34ers — both records.

I couldn't bring myself to watch Asylum, but I did okay with this first episode.

And Jessica Lange is becoming the American Maggie Smith with her fantastic deadpan delivery. "Mary Todd Lincoln"--perfect!

Re: American Horror Story - Coven

It was a good start to kick off the new season. I'm not that invested in the young female characters at Madame Robichaux's Academy; even Lange made a reference to Hogwarts.

Is it me, or are they killing off former cast members like Lily Rabe and Evan Peters? (The characters, not the actors.)

Re: American Horror Story - Coven

This was the first I'd watched the show since the second or third episode of the first season, and I like it. I had actually wanted to try Asylum, but I missed the beginning and I figured I'd rather just wait and watch it on Netflix. I do agree that the young witches stuff is the least interesting so far, but I think it'll be worth it for the adult characters.
Oh, and Evan Peters will be back. They showed the two blondes girls making him into a magical Frankenstein's monster in the preview at the end of the episode.

Denis O'Hare, who plays the butler, reminds me of Argus Filch from Harry Potter.

Re: American Horror Story - Coven

I liked it, overall. I'm not entirely sure where they're going with it. I'll agree that the teen witches were a bit bland, but I think they're meant to start out that way. I have a feeling they're going to end up pawns in a very elaborate chess game and at that point we'll start feeling more empathy for them.

Surely Lily Rabe, as a witch who can revive the dead, isn't really dead herself?

I'm guessing Rabe and Peters will be a part of the zombies that they mentioned in the end of episode previews for the upcoming season.

Totally agree with the unimpressive teen witches, but the party bus flip that Emma Roberts conjured up was pretty cool-looking.
