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.
While network television is still competing for as many eyeballs as possible, some of the cable networks are trying to resonate with viewers in other ways. Recently, a research department compiled a study of the Top 10 lists from critics and determined there are three networks that stand out on “best of” lists.
Raylan and Boyd’s antagonistic relationship has been years in the making. The two men were friends when they worked in the mines as young men. Later, their relationship became more antagonistic, but , the two men are often and unexpectedly connected. Here's where their relationship is leading into Season 6.
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.
FX has been busy promoting the last installation of the drama, but apparently even showrunner Graham Yost is unsure how the show’s ultimate standoff between Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens and outlaw Boyd Crowder will actually end.
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.
There’s no show on television that makes me want to drink alcohol more than It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Sure, booze always makes their problems worse, but it’s not about the final result. It’s about how much drunken fun they have before waking up. It’s about living in the moment, and no one lives in the moment like these idiots.
Sons of Anarchy piled up a ton of bodies over its seven-season run, enough that there were probably more dead characters than alive ones by the end. And you can now find every single major character death (and quite a few non-major offings) in this gorgeous frenzy of an infograph/poster.
To guide my argument that this show should have much more stellar ratings this year, here are five reasons why Archer is as magnificent as it’s ever been, and why you literally need to start watching it right now! Wait…not literally, depending on when you’re reading this, as Season 6 starts tonight on FX.
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.
Ryan Murphy’s upcoming anthology drama American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is putting together a cast that is starting to eclipse those of his American Horror Story seasons, at least in terms of wackiness. And this latest addition is the most interesting one yet.
For Season 5, known as Archer: Vice, the squad took a year off of clandestine spy work to attempt to sell a vast amount of cocaine, which went about as well as viewers would expect. It was these crimes, as opposed to the plethora of other wrongdoings Archer & Co. are guilty of, that would have landed them behind bars. But it ultimately wasn't to be.
There are a lot of secrets woven into The Americans' narrative, or at least things that used to be secrets, as the show was created by former CIA officer Joe Weisberg. And it’s definitely no accident which elements of the CIA’s history come up during the episodes.
Ryan Murphy’s next small screen endeavor, following the famous O.J. Simpson murder trial, is coming together much faster than we thought. This week the show signed on a famous comedic actor to play Robert Kardashian.
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.
