    I don't watch this show, but my GF does.... I happened to watch a bit though.... Wow the shit they get away with on that show. There was a brutal anal rape scene.... I couldn't believe it was FX. Funny they can show that, but can't say the word fuck. Wtf?

    No!! It seems this show is all about shock value.

    Horror has little to do with what they're doing. Not trying to scare, but shock you with what they can get away with on TV.

    I haven't watched this season, but last season was awful. The problem with this show is they are just trying to out do each season and getting more and more ridiculous.

    I agree. I thought S1 was good at first, but quickly turned lame. I almost didn't watch S2 because of S1, but I'm so glad I did. Asylum is by far, imo, the best season. Coven was awful, Freakshow was worse because of what you said, Ryan Murphy has replaced storytelling with shock factor. And I can handle shock factor, but only in addition to storytelling. I haven't watched the first episode of this season yet, and without Jessica Lange, and with Lady Gaga taking over (Ryan Murphy's already asked her back for next season) I'm not motivated to.

    The first season was great.. sucks they did the True Detective thing and replaced the cast each season. Well in all due respect, I guess they did it before True Detective. Either way, its a shit idea.

    Exactly! Shock value and horror are two different things.

    My gf watches it too and I watched the 1st episode with her and confirmed my theory that girls like stupid horrible shows.

    I agree totally (though I probably prefer S1 to S2). The story telling was my favorite part. I thought S3 started off with a lot of potential. I was excited to see what happens after the 1st episode, because of how good the story telling was in S1 & 2. I was quickly disappointed when I realized it wasn't going anywhere. I pushed myself through the rest of the 3rd season, but never finished the 4th after watching about half of it. I watched about half of S5 E1 before turning it off. Inside of like 20 minutes, they ripped off The Shining, Manhunter and Se7en. It was all shock with no story to pull me in. I'll probably wait for a few episodes to build up and then binge watch them when I'm in the mood and see if I find enough interest to carry on.

    I must be jaded, because all I thought was "Boy, that looks like a big cleaning headache!"
