Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
The popularity of modern anthology series could possibly trace to the massive success of American Horror Story, which debuted in 2011 on FX. One of the unique aspects of how this anthology works is in its rotation of acting talent through the series’ seasons, which overlap one another. There has more than twice been an actress who plays more than one role in a single season. Last year’s AHS: Apocalypse arc was a magnificent merger of the seasons “Murder House” and “Coven.” “Hotel” was also in play, as it featured the fate of Queenie from “Coven” because she got trapped there in one of the numerous crossovers between seasons.
The story that slowly emerged from last season was that the Coven from New Orleans was prepared for Michael Langdon’s attempt to destroy Earth as the antichrist. Ultimately, Madison ascended as the next Supreme after Cordelia sacrificed herself for the greater good. Madison was eventually able to master her powers so well that she traveled back in time to kill Langdon before he could assume his full demonic might.
Tonight, of course, we’ll be diving into a totally new world as AHS: 1984 debuts. No, this is not an Orwell homage from what I am given to understand, but more a take on 80s horror films like Friday the 13th & A Nightmare on Elm Street. Someone must have caught the Stranger Things nostalgia bug. It sounds like we start off on a tangent to the Jason Vorhees mythos, so grab a butcher knife and a hockey mask and let’s go!
On tonight’s episode, “ Camp Redwood,” in the summer of 1984, five friends escape Los Angeles to work as counselors at Camp Redwood. As they adjust to their new jobs, they quickly learn that the only thing scarier than campfire tales is the past coming to haunt you.
Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on FX at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching Full Frontal with Samantha Bee & Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
