With only a few minor tweaks, the American Horror Story: Freak Show finale “Curtain Call” would serve as a perfect reunion special for this season, had it ended at Episode 12 for some reason. Gone are the conversations between Neil Patrick Harris and his sex-watching ventriloquist dummy, and in are the time-jumps, wrap-ups and happily-ever-afters.
This week, the unadulterated strangeness that is American Horror Story: Freak Show will be taking down its tents and moving on into the back of our collective consciousness. But just because Season 5 is another ten months away, there’s no reason to avoid talking about it.
In its four years, American Horror Story has gone through some cyclical storytelling, hitting on the same beats time and again, sometimes intentionally and sometimes probably less so. But Danny Huston is back! And this episode had a scene that disturbed me more than any other this season.
Somebody is now handless, a few people are now lifeless, and a batshit crazy war vet Neil Patrick Harris has arrived to add even more WTF to the show.
While some people obviously have severe problems with nudity and violence on television, I revel in that kind of stuff. But it was still no easy task to put together the 10 most explicit TV series of 2014, because some of these shows’ filters seem to either be absent or clogged with hair and viscera. What a year, though.
You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not disrobe on Christmas Eve, or assume you or your family will live to see December 26, or attempt to experience goodwill and joy on Christmas. Because one of these Santa Clauses might be coming to town.
Instead of seeing Dandy wax proudly and bare-assedly about being a god among men, we got to witness the unspeakably horrendous life story of Pepper the Pinhead. Cue the violin submersing itself in termites.
When you're searching Google for a particular TV show, do you ever think about how many other people are searching for that exact same thing? Luckily, you don't even need to Google that information, because we have it for you right here...thanks to Google.

There’s always a point in American Horror Story when it becomes so very clear that this series is partly written via several games of MASH, and I don’t know how anyone can return to any form after the inexcusable narrative shaming that was “Tupperware Party Massacre,” which may damn well be the worst episode American Horror Story has ever expelled from its mother-loins.
Barely any characters in American Horror Story live long enough to make it to the end, and “Blood Bath” was particularly exemplary of that. Featuring some of the best lines of the season and a few uncomfortable surprises, tonight’s episode was nonetheless a bit of a wash, with the soap opera approach jacked up to 11.
I don’t say this often for American Horror Story, a series that I unapologetically hold near and dear, but tonight’s “Test of Strength” was a complete waste of an hour on almost every level. It's gotta happen sometime, right?
This week, a script from FX’s hit series American Horror Story was stolen from the set. The theft of one or even a few script pages might not be a huge deal for every TV series, but for the heavily-detailed American Horror Story, a leak of a page is a big deal.
Love is in the air on American Horror Story, and none of it is of the normal kind. Find out who's getting busy between the sheets and who will soon be beneath the sheets of their death bed.
If you thought the only toy-related fictional property you had to look forward to was Pixar’s Toy Story 4, you aren’t thinking big or bloody enough. For here is the genre-mashing American Horror Toy Story! I’d say it’s NSFW, but that’s only if you work in a plastic office set sold by Playskool.
