Last night American Horror Story premiered on FX. This season it is called American Horror Story Freak Show & it looks like it’ll be quite a thriller.
I began to watch AHS just last season because of Kathy Bates, Gabourey Sidibe & of course the incredible Angela Bassett. AHS Coven was great, particularly because of Angela Bassett’s character. Each season is a new premise with a new storyline & new characters. Some actors return & they usually bring new ones in. Jessica Lange & Sarah Paulson have been around for all of them.
This season, Jessica Lange plays Elsa, a woman who runs a freak show. There is the bearded lady, played by Kathy Bates, the 2 headed woman played by Sarah Paulson, a boy with deformed hands, the world’s smallest woman, a giant lady, a woman with only 2 arms & many others. Angela Bassett will be playing a hermaphrodite with 3 breasts. Emma Roberts will be returning as a fortune teller, Gabourey will be back, & Patti Labelle has joined the cast as well.
So last started very creepy. Mostly with Elsa collecting freaks & trying to figure out how to get her show to take off. At the same time, there is a really creepy, killer clown on the loose. It’s all very disturbing. It’s funny in a dark way, but always pushes the limits.
The show is very weird, but I find it entertaining. It’s definitely different from any other show on TV. Tune in Wednesday nights on FX at 10/9c.
