    “Murphy has talked about how flashbacks will let Peters portray a number of cult leaders throughout the season, but that doesn’t begin in the opening three episodes. (Also not in the first three episodes? Cult guest star Lena Dunham, so those suffering from irrational Dunophobia can watch without fear.)”

    Dunophobia ????????????

    Good reviews? Has there not been one good review (Fienberg) and one bad one (Travers), plus my take?

    No, it means people who are annoyed (and rightfully offended) by a white feminist loser and hypocrite who admitted to molesting her baby sister, probably abused her dog, and (though I’m not sure if this is true, with Dunham it wouldn’t surprise me) lied about being raped. “I never had an abortion, but I wish I had.” WTF?!

    I am an actual feminist, who will stick up for women of all skin tones, whether you’re rich and privileged as f**k or not. I truly hate how Lena Dunham is turning feminism into a completely grotesque joke with her refusal to seek some kind of serious therapy for her obvious mental health problems. 🙁

    Seems like critics can’t agree on the quality of this season. So far I’ve seen (would have linked but it wouldn’t let me do so many ugh):

    -Very positive reviews from THR, The Wrap and Pop Culture

    -Positive from Deadline and Nerdist

    -Mildly positive from USA today

    -Mixed to negative from Uncle Barky

    -A pan from Indiewire

    -Plus of course Riley’s negative response.

    Who knows what to believe?

    Excited! I get a feeling that Bates will be somehow involved in the 2nd half and the same for Angela Bassett.

    Interested to see this season. This seems like its most polarizing season yet.

    There are indeed more positive ones now; Metacritic scores it as 67 so far.  I am glad that I was able to watch a few to watch instead of just one.  To be clear, I like the show and intend to watch the full season, but I was trying to acknowledge that the show is very much a guilty pleasure (and not on the level of what Roanoke became).

    Not saying she’ll break back in by any stretch, but Paulson really is being raved for this:

    THR

    In a role that mixes intense unraveling with small humorous bursts chiding triggered liberals, Paulson is spectacular. After three episodes, I was feeling real pity for what Murphy is putting his muse through, but if the text of Cult is, “The world is fucked up and the election made it worse,” the subtext appears to be, “Sarah Paulson needs another Emmy.”

    Vulture

    the series is (no surprise) a real showcase for Paulson, who’s a bundle of jangled nerves and teary-eyed fear. At no point does Ally resort to sheetcaking, but you just know that if someone handed her a fork and a pan of something frosted, she would go straight to town, probably while ranting about clowns and Ann Coulter. But Paulson’s just as convincing at conveying Ally’s stubborn desire to grip her fist around reality.

    TV Fanatic

    Sarah Paulson is getting another Emmy

    The star of the show is Sarah Paulson. As the AHS Season 7 trailer showed, she plays a liberal with severe phobia issues who suffers a melt down after the election. She’s harboring a devastating secret that plays incredibly well to current times but only further complicates her day-to-day living.

    As a wife and mother, Ally struggles to pull herself together in a world she no longer recognizes. Is it real or is it in her head? Watching her cling to reality and what she thought she always knew about the world is terrifying and delightful.

    TV Guide

    But in Sarah Paulson’s fantastic performance as Ally, we witness a woman who lets rational concerns turn into irrational frenzy. She’s ridiculous and histrionic, and in its campy way provides some relief from the suddenly frightening world we occupy

    Nerdist

    amazing work from Paulson and Peters

    Pop Culture

    Paulson’s turn as Aly is one of her best AHS roles yet, and that’s saying something. It’s hard to be the most ludicrous character on the show while also being the most transparent and relatable. In just three episodes, Paulson is already making another Emmy case.

    FX put the fourth episode online Friday and it was a big step up for me. The first three episodes were mostly about Sarah Paulson, but she is only a cameo in this one and the episode is instead all about Evan Peters. There are shades of Leonardo DiCaprio in the intensity that Peters brings to showing his character’s origins of sorts as a cult leader. It was nice to take a break from the craziness of Paulson’s character and also to take a break from the show trying to surprise; as could be expected by its “11/9” title, this one is more about filling in blanks and explaining. It is also the best showcase of the first four episodes for Billy Eichner, Emma Roberts and Adina Porter, while regulars Allison Pill, Billie Lourd and Cheyenne Jackson take a backseat with Paulson. I was wrong about Porter’s role not being expanded; hard to tell if Porter is playing campy or if she is just bad. Still no Lena Dunham, Frances Conroy or Mare Winningham.

    Porter Can’t be bad!
