I watched it. The whole season don't skip an episode or you'll be lost. It's a great show so many things you don't see coming, or at least i didn't anyway. I hope there is a second season I really like this show. Won't say anything else about it don't want to ruin it for ya. It is very creepy and twisted, maybe why I like it? laff

Another one of my favorite shows.  Next season will take place in a circus.  The coven season was cool.

Coven was unwatchable, but the first two were hilarious.

I agree, Coven was a travesty. It started off with an interesting enough premise, but then it failed to deliver on that premise whatsoever. Having an almost all-female cast was a bold move that I support, and most of the actresses were pretty talented, but the writers wasted that talent on boring soap drama storylines. Some of the gore was fun, but there wasn't even close to enough magic considering the whole thing was about witches. And the ending was pretty much a textbook example of how to conclude a story unsatisfyingly. Even more so than the second season (which was also guilty of this but seemed to be able to pull it off decently enough anyway), this season felt like they started writing all the scripts before they even planned out how everything would go down, and the result was a mess. For the first time in a while I felt like I really wasted my time watching an entire season of television.

Although I was unsure if I would after finishing the shit that was Coven, hearing the premise for this season Freak Show compelled me enough to give it a shot. It's three episodes deep, and it's already better and more sure of itself than Coven was this early on. It's very exploitative and self-aware about it, but it's also darker in a more serious way like the first two seasons and unlike Coven which couldn't decide whether it was trying to tell a real story or just winking at the audience. Also, Michael Chiklis is a welcome addition to the cast.

I've enjoyed what I've seen enough to hang on for the season, I suppose, unless it really makes a bold misstep into shitsville. I'm already a little annoyed that they brought in a supernatural element in the third episode that feels unnecessary, but I don't mind the tone of it and it might not stick around for too long. My main hope is that this one doesn't string out into too many different storylines that it fails to wrap up cohesively like the last two seasons.

Season 1 started out really great then became shit halfway through, season 2 is pretty good but it seems like they wasted too many ideas on it, season 4 was fucking dreadful and lacked any "horror" and I haven't watched season 3 because 99% of everyone who has seen it says it is awful. Some say it's worse than season 4, so I am definitely giving it a miss.

This show is beyond overrated.

I still haven't checked out season 4 yet, though really: Did the show ever contain any "horror?"

Do 99% of all horror movies contain any either?

If I wanted to watch a show about character-development or drama I'd go watch something like Breaking Bad again.

Freak Show's only horror imo was the gore/murdering/serial killer(s) and the ghost aspect with Edward Mordrake. Both of these things have been done way too many times on the show in previous seasons.

I wasn't aware that anybody watched American Horror Story for the "horror." It's far too campy to be genuinely scary - I always just went into the show with the mindset of watching a D-grade movie and had a blast in the process.

Agreed with you there, Beamer.

I just finished season 4, it wasn't terrible. It was definitely leagues better than Coven. I actually thought this season felt more coherent and concluded more naturally than Coven and maybe even Asylum, which was surprising considering it seemed like there were just as many characters and side stories, if not more. Maybe that's just because I'm used to how loosely they play things now, though.

Still guilty pleasure TV to be sure.

Eh, even Murder House went on some utterly bizarre tangents (the home invasion, Piggy, the whole antichrist thing). This show's writing process has always seemed to be "throw everything at the wall and see what sticks," and the ideal end result is a glorious incoherent mess of nonsense, akin to, say, Saints Row IV or the finale of South Park's most recent season.

Well the Antichrist stuff turned out to be kind of important at least. I do remember thinking about how bizarrely random and pointless the Piggy bits were.

That's true, but it still came out of nowhere. And I absolutely LOVED the way they revealed it.
"Whenever they elect a new pope..."
Still quite possibly my favourite moment in the entire show.
