Dandy is going to be the character to watch this season. I think Twisty is a red herring.

two episodes (out of 10? or is it 13?).

the story should grab us. . instead it's meandering all over the place, and is showing terrible plot holes / lapses in logic

and I say this having not seen tonight's episode yet.

example? Greta wants the twins to save the show?. . so why then one episode later, try to have one maim (kill?) the TALENTED one who can bring in the customers? Makes no sense at all. There has to be internal logic in the show.

The logic is she brings he twins to get people to come to the show so there will be an audience to see her. She wants to be the star. When the talented one steals the spotlight her jealousy not logic steps in and she tries to take one out or make it so she (dot?) can't sing.

Makes sense to me.

Not saying this season is good or will be good.

Really thought yesterday's episode was really boring. IMO, it wasn't worth saying up until 12.

ok, having now seen episode 3?

yeah. . the show's not working.

Too many ideas, that just are not jelling (or just falling completely flat).

there's some sparks there in a couple of storylines (the body sellers is a good idea -- tho the humongous (? at least implied humongous) penis is there for NO STORYTELLING reason at all I can think of other than giggles). . and they did a great job investing me in Ethyl's storyline (with her son. . tho not so much Dell).

but just too much is NOT working (the clown/killer storyline is a joke with the spoiled rich kid, Dell being impotent has left Angela Bassett nothing to do, the Cops were complicit in the murder of the Geek yet no retaliation from the Freakshow (to the point of LobsterBoy letting himself get bullied by a cop). . . .nevermind the twins who despite Sarah Paulson's best efforts, just aren't that interesting (or believable).

I'll give it a few more episodes, as the Cinematography is fantastic, and most of the actors are knocking it out of the park (in particular Kathy Bates, and Jessica Lange).

but yeah. . it needs a central storyline, and quickly, if it wants to retain my interest.

No, of course it's not. But AHS isn't all that bad, it has certain parts where it's iffy but I'm mature enough to watch it. :oops:
