    Entertainment Weekly has posted a link to the “American Horror Story” opening title sequence

     

    I’ve already watched them three times. Genuinely frightening, very atmopsheric, and [hopefully] evocative of whats to come for the series.

    Those opening credits look like a mess, to be honest. I’m going to try watching the pilot next week, but I don’t have much hope of liking it.

    The font and that opening credit might be the only legit good things from this show. Not getting my hopes up at all, b/c we have all seen Ryan Murphy operating on one show and being mediocre, but Hollywood has allowed him to be in a position that he’s helming two shows.

    Synopsis: In the series premiere, a therapist and his family move across the country to escape their troubled past but quickly discover their new home comes with it’s own horrific baggage.

    I’m going into this show with… well, with extreme hesitancy. I was a fan of “Nip/Tuck”, so I certainly know what to expect from Murphy and Falchuk in the drama department. If nothing else, I think “American Horror Story” will be television spectacle, something so campy you just can’t turn away, an hour of teleivsion you can just tune in and turn your brain off with. 

     

    We’ll see, I guess.

    I really enjoyed this! Even though I was fearing for Connie Britton, she came through like the great actress that she is. The two things I did not like were the weird edits and Dylan McDermott. They got me sucked in for the season, like how all their shows have in the past, but like I said really enjoyed this.

    I’m speechless. 

     

    Credit where credit is due: there’s nothing else quite like “American Horror Story” on televison at the moment.

    Fuck u Ryan Murphy. Shit is shit. Just because something is distinct, unabashedly campy shit doesn’t excuse it from being shit, especially when that shit is poorly edited, full of cliches and keeps having its character say “shit” just for the hell of it.

    They got Connie playing this completely dull, cliche version of a modern housewife. She did nothing interesting. (Who knew having sex with the ghost of a leather stud would be so dull to watch?) All she gets to do is stare uncomfortably at all the weirdness.

    Someone start a FreeConnieBritton Facebook page stat.

    I thought the premeire was ok. I didn`t love it or hate it.  I do agree with others about the poor editing. Some of the scenes felt like they were rushed or forced. I thought Connie Britton really carried the episode. There was enough in the pilot to keep me watching more episodes in the future.

     

    “Pilot”: C+

    This was….. strange. I agree that there is nothing else like it right now, but even that is open to interpretation. This could be something special, but it probably won’t be. It seems more like a mix of Amityville Horror and Rosemary’s Baby. If this show does turn into something big, it has what other Murphy shows don’t. This is the kind of show that is supposed to have a new cast each season, so there is so much more room for creativity. 

    As for the pilot, it felt a bit uneven. Dylan McDermott is awful. The editing seemed interesting, but the way it was executed was poor. Connie Britton seems more depressed that she is dealing with a poor man’s Gabriel Byrne instead of having a successful marriage with Coach Taylor. The whole Frances Conroy thing is really strange, and very creepy. 

    Now, why it was good. Connie Britton is very good in this. I’m excited to see what else (or who else) she’ll do this season. I found that I really liked Evan Peters for the majority of his screen time. He could be pretty interesting to watch. The most important factor to note is that, while occasionally over the top, and even dull, this pilot was frightening. Sure, at the beginning, everyone knows the fate of the twins, but the suspense is so engulfing, and it truly is scary.

    I’ll catch a few more episodes to see where this is headed.

    I guess it had its moments, but when all was said and done, it didn’t make me wonder, didn’t make me think, didn’t scare me, and didn’t leave me wanting more. Oh, well.
