Splish: So, in order, the concept, everything else at first blush, and everything else upon further viewing? Seriously, I tried so hard to like that show, but watching it became a chore. I'd see it on my DVR and be reminded of just how much I hated it.
Devoid: Agreed. I liked it, and not just because it exposed me to that yummy young lady.
FeedTheCollapse: Not sure why people would be made about the recasting for next season as there's not much else that could be done with the story.
Elliott Smith Reference: jacked it by the window in another room, started crying, and then noticed a burned man in a suit watching him from the garden
VenomousDuck: I enjoyed the show, but only because it was so trashy and over the top. Moving to a new locale is the only way it could do another season, but I'll be disappointed not to see Lange every week.
AaronSynn: Anybody remember 'Harpers Island'?That was supposed to do the whole 'every season a totally different story' thing too...
FeedTheCollapse: Elliott Smith Reference: jacked it by the window in another room, started crying, and then noticed a burned man in a suit watching him from the gardenI was hoping there was an animated gif of this scene, but I don't have the nerve to GIS "Dylan McDermott masturbating"..
duckpoopy: The tard was hilarious. Too bad they killed it off without making it a ghost.
Elliott Smith Reference: I've got to say, "American Horror Story" had me hooked from episode one, mainly because it was a thoroughly baffling program. In the first episode in the span of five minutes or so the father had seen the old/young nurse in a compromising position, jacked it by the window in another room, started crying, and then noticed a burned man in a suit watching him from the garden. It all begged so many questions.Having watched the entirety of season one I can safely say there are certainly things to like about the show. The ghosts for instance. There are so many ghosts! You couldn't so much as look at a ghost in that place without another ghost blocking your field of vision and saying, "Pardon me sir, were you trying to look at that ghost? It just so happens that I am also a ghost." Which brings me to my main problem with the show. There are too many ghosts! It's wall to wall ghosts in that place, and they keep making more ghosts. Sometimes it's people making other people ghosts, or people making themselves ghosts, even the ghosts get in on the ghost making action.Now while near exponential ghost growth would seem to be a pretty major flaw I think that all the show really needs for a successful second season is a little rebranding. They should change the name of the show to "Too many ghosts!" and create a teaser for season two that reads as follows: "Too Many Ghosts season 2, Even. More. Ghosts."
Confabulat: I watched every episode of that horrible show, and I hated every minute of it, and I hated myself for still watching it but watch it I still did.I also hated every single character from the second they were introduced, with the possible exception of Jessica Lange.
chapman: I was hoping for the show to be at least a little scary but it totally failed. Death has less consequence than World of Warcraft where at least there is a respawn timer. It's hardly horror if you can spend half the season dead, and not know it. The hot redhead was the only redeeming quality but she disappeared at the end of the season (with no explanation as to why she had to be ugly and old either.) I'll try to give the next season a chance, but the first one underwhelmed.
Scrotastic Method: I don't know, I don't really want them to change it up too much. We already had one show that went on too long, that seemed to restart itself every season, that never had to play by its own rules, that left huge questions unanswered, that insulted the fans, that left everyone wondering why they stuck around, and seemed to treat each new season as a way to get even more capricious with the writing.So, basically, don't make this another Lost.
katerbug72: Who is Constance's fourth child? Where was the dog the entire season?
Lsherm: The only show that has actually pulled this off is "The Wire" - and I don't think Captain Gleetard has the attention span or talent to do something like that. I bet it fizzles out by the middle of next year.
