Re: American Horror Story
So I watched the first episode on demand last night. I liked it. There was a lot going on for a first episode and in a way, maybe too much at times. It seems like they felt they had to introduce us to just about every character and element right from the start. I think I would've enjoyed it more if we just got glimpses of things at first and if there was a bit more of a build-up. But maybe they felt they had to draw people in right away, so hopefully now they'll explore some of the elements more slowly and let some suspense and mystery build. There's definitely a lot of potential, though.
And Jessica Lange was excellent, of course.
