    I'm watching and will watch the whole season, but I don't really love it. I think I was disappointed in the premise. When I saw the title, I was hoping and expected it to be a cult in the manner of Scientology, or Jim Jones or something. It also had clowns which would usually be a plus.

    This has managed to de-mystify the clown aspect and the cult is definitely not the kind of cult that I was hoping for and expecting. That isn't all the fault of the show because part of it is my own expectations.

    There seem to be more logic gaps in the show than normal but maybe because I haven't bought into this season as much as normal.

    All seasons have had their flaws. Some seasons the flaws were minor, and some seasons the flaws were glaring and horrible. All seasons have had their strong points as well. Some strong points were few and far between. Some seasons were strong for at least most of the way through. This isn't one of my favorite seasons at all.

    I'm still watching and I usually have already quit at this point. One of the better seasons imo.

    I saw the first episode and ejected
    based on their history of failure after about 5 episodes
    I may come back and catch up later

    This show is so amazingly terrible I can't stop watching. Hilariously horrible acting, nonsensical writing, some of the dumbest characters in TV history, hamfisted political allegory, a preposterous plot, it's got everything.

    I'm liking it. Hotel was the worst IMO. Then Freak Show.

    What's that in the corner? It's a 3-faced clown with dildoes for noses.

    I haven't watched the latest episode. Even though I think this is the best season in years, AHS routinely goes off the rails. After being pretty intrigued for the past few weeks, I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    Wouldn't it be better to get rid of the evidence?

    That's just what they're expecting us to do!

    This show is amazing.

    I watched Season 1, and about half of Season 2 before giving up. The storyline just doesn't do it for me.

    Some people are different. I loved this season. Easily my favorite in regards to the acting and story line. Zodiac...Charles Manson..Good stuff.

    Personally, I think it's the second worst, only slightly ahead of Hotel.....

    now
    I see I was not too too wrong

    I know it's a long time to get into a show, but it only starts to make sense in the 4th episode. I still contend that the middle part of this season is pretty good. These last couple episodes haven't been great..

    Yeah, I agree. It was a chore to keep watching, but I invested the time to get started, so I wanted to finish.
