The Pros:

Fun and creepy premise!

The premiere episode did a great job of reeling its audience back in. Season one had some stand out anthology episodes, but a lot of others fell short in my opinion. I think that season two is already starting off a lot stronger, recognizing some of its weaknesses from its opening season.

The premiere episode was twisted and a lot of fun and I absolutely LOVED that it connected to another part of the AHS world. I think this formula works best for the anthology series and hopefully the remaining episodes will deliver as well.

A cast to be excited about!

Season two will feature some series regulars like Cody Fern and Denis O’Hare, but we will also get to see some newcomers as well, including Bella Thorne, Alicia Silverstone, and Madison Iseman. I am really excited to see what they bring to the table!

The Cons:

A plot I’ve seen before…

While I thoroughly enjoyed the season two premiere episode, it’s a plot I’ve seen before in other films and shows. It was creepy and Denis O’Hare was on another level of disturbing, but I wanted more of an edge during some parts. There were some scenes that didn’t make sense to me, but the ending redeemed itself and brought things full circle.

I just hope that this season is a little bit more consistent with its episodes this time around, but we’re off to a solid beginning. Fingers crossed that it continues!

So am I in or out?
