    I’ve seen the first six episodes now, and this show is just so insanely entertaining. It embraces its camp, ridiculousness and drama like a Ryan Murphy show hasn’t done in a long time, and runs with it. Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon are the standouts, and both deserve awards recognition. Of course Paulson is channelling some of her past characters, but there are new shades of her we get to see here as well. This show also features some of the best cinematography on a Murphy show. And I’ve really grown on the uber-dramatic music, which is deliberately over the top.

    Visually Ratched is gorgeous. The next motel I stay at must look out over the blue, calm sea.

    I just finished Ratched last night and I did enjoy the series overall – Ryan Murphy has his quirks but I like a little quirk in my life. Uneven – definitely. Entertaining – absolutely!

    The performances I liked were Judy Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Sophie Okonedo (Emmy level). Paulson has been better in other roles, but she did hold her own here and I could see her getting some award recognition although if any actor gets recognized I would hope it would be Sophie Okonedo. Her character gave the series a much needed shot in the arm.

    SPOILER:

    I hated when one of my favorite, although minor, characters was killed. Hated it. It just seemed unnecessary and I thought what an interesting character and storyline could have been written for Hank if there was another season. His short story broke my heart.

    How unnecessary of me and my boyfriend to watch One flew over the cuckoo‘s nest in preparation as it has nothing to do with it except the name. It would have worked better for me as a new american horror story chapter or a totally new idea, but anyway – we had a lot of fun! Though the ending and Edmunds storyline was too much of everything.

    I can see Sarah Paulson getting some award recognition and I‘d be happy for her, but I am not so sure about the rest. In my taste Sophie Okonedo overacted and unintentionally slipped into comic territory.

    However according to Ryan Murphys Twitter it appeares as a complete success, so I guess we come to enjoy the full four season plan.

    It’s not a 2 seasons plan??

    I think it was the Harpers Bazar Interview with Sarah Paulson where she mentioned four seasons.

    There’s too many causals enjoying this show for it to not to get multiple nominations during awards season.

    I thought this was a limited series? 4 seasons of this is excessive.

    I suppose it will be a semi-anthology project like The Politician.

    It gets much better! The pilot was slow but imo this show gets better and better with every episode.

    I can’t wait for you to see Sophie Okonedo!

    Speaking of Murphy and his “plans”, does anyone expect the Politician to ever come back?

    It’s been commissioned for a third season but is on a four year hiatus as there will be a time jump and Platt is too young.

    The plan for Ratched is four seasons, culminating with the story of Cuckoo’s Nest.
