    Very good premiere. The first few minutes were a definite highlight: very engaging, tense and extremely well-done that built a necessary momentum to keep me hooked through a drearier continuation. The rest of the episode did sustain enough suspense and mystery to be interesting enough but it pales in comparison to the opening, even if I know it’s a necessary set up. I enjoyed how the episode relied less on the in-your-face jump scares so far and I hope the season continues to since I usually enjoy the seasons that do so. Loving the cast especially Paulson and Peters and hey, finally something that makes me tolerate Billie Lourd’s monotony. I’m also weirdly liking Leslie Grossman, alert the press! My gripe here is the costumes that are very over-the-top. Cody Fern’s Count Dracula look is especially tiresome and what’s with his hair?!!! I was still ridiculously excited to see him and I’m hooked by how effortlessly unsettling he is.

    Ryan Murphy this season is supposed to harken back to earlier AHS….so more camp, which would explain the over the top costumes. I’m here for it.

    It was very good indeed. I loved it. Paulson and Peters were my favorites, Fern was exceptional.

    There was so much hype about the crossover and then there was like no crossover in the premiere.

    Hey, remember that part in the middle of the episode when they discovered that there was no pilot? Because the episode sure forgot about it. The next time that we saw them, it was weeks later and everyone was safe and sound.

    I wonder how long those teenagers are going to stick around. They are not in the main credits. Looking forward to seeing Cheyenne Jackson, but his position in the credits suggests that this will be another Roanoke-sized role.

    Well, Michael Langdon is a Murder House’s character, so the crossover already began.

    I wanna know what the fuck this was about but I don’t expect it to be brought up again.

    I didn’t get the vibe that it was A Thing? I mean, sure it caused momentary panic but that was abruptly overshadowed by the blast and the plane stabilized somehow after the turbulence. It was steady through the shot of the mushroom cloud and the characters’ reactions and that was it, no need to dwell more on it because whatever. The episode seemed to attribute the lack of a pilot to the fact that only the “chosen” and those who paid for a ticket were allowed into the Outpost, and that the Cooperative clearly has people working for him that handle the transfer, like those two “agents” that picked up the two teenagers and dropped them off.

    Interestingly, what I’d like to know is why Coco’s chauffeur chose to stay behind and get killed instead of boarding the damn plane with them like any sane human being would do. Director-mandated self-sacrifice is thoroughly inexplicable but eh, nothing new to either AHS or television in general. I’ve learned to let it go.

    same, when he shut the plane door I chuckled to myself

    I mean, according to the premise, he would probably be killed upon arrival since he wasn’t super-wealthy or “chosen.” But if it were me, I would give it a try lol

    Episode 2 felt like a mid season filler… even if it had some interesting scenes. Episode 3 needs to get things started for real tho.

    Well, Michael Langdon is a Murder House’s character, so the crossover already began.

    Who was Michael? I remember Tate Langdon but I don’t recall a Michael

    The first episode started off so good! But then it teetered into pretentious territory with the Sarah Paulson character.

    And my god! This may be the worst role Kathy Bates has ever had on a season. They made her look grotesque…and not in a good way.

    I’ll give Apocalypse 2 more episodes. And if it continues to go down hill, then I’m out.

    I mean, it’s marketed as a crossover but it was pretty clear from the trailer that there is another story at the heart of it. I wasn’t expecting heavy crossover going into the premiere.
