Britney Spears, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunham and More Read Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s "Mean Tweets"

21 November 2014 4:25 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 7 Review

20 November 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alice Rush reviews the seventh episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show

After a shaky episode last week ‘Test of Strength’ proves that whilst this season, much like Coven before it, is decidedly lacking in the horror element of the show it still has a lot to offer in terms of drama and intensity.

This week sees a marked move towards Elsa’s Cabinet of Curiosities crumbling around her as each of the acts stumble towards their own personal doom. Jimmy’s rescuing of the twins from Dandy puts him in the warped murders firing line, Ethel is getting more and more ill after discovering the death of the only doctor who would treat her, the twins are being eyed up by Stanley who is duping Elsa into helping him whilst at the same time also blackmailing Del into killing another of the camp. Phew. There’s a lot going »

American Horror Story: Freak Show Recap: “Test of Strength”

20 November 2014 10:43 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Dell (Michael Chiklis) needed some time in the spotlight and in American Horror Story: Freak Show episode 7 he finally gets it, but it doesn’t do him much good at all.  The show’s been playing the same game with the character since the moment he arrived at Elsa’s Cabinet of Curiosities.  Dell does terrible things, but then we get a quick glimpse of him looking sad and remorseful and are expected to believe the guy’s got a heart.  No more.  Dell wasn’t really in a position to carry an episode to begin with, but he gets away with it because the characters around him are so strong that his effect on them still has great value.  But, when it comes to Dell as an individual, at this point, he’s a lost cause.  There’s just no coming back from what he does at the end of “Test of Strength. »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 7: 'Test of Strength'

19 November 2014 5:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"American Horror Story: Freak Show" won't be back on until after Thanksgiving, but tonight's episode didn't feel very filling. Dandy's angry cry-face is pretty representative of the whole episode; there's lots of pouting and near-tantrums and Frances Conroy just needs to come in and regulate the whole damn mess.

Let's just get started, shall we?

That's Just Dandy

Dandy (Finn Wittrock) and Mrs. Mott (Frances Conroy) don't have a whole lot of screen time this week, which is fine because they're best in small doses. Jimmy Darling (Evan Peters) shows up to collect the Tattler twins (Sarah Paulson), who have been dressed up like Alice in Wonderland. When Dandy reveals that he read Dot's diary and that she secretly wants to get surgically separated from Bette, it's not too hard for Jimmy to convince them both to leave Dandy and his fancy caviar behind. Jimmy also gets a big clue »

'Ahs: Freak Show' First Look: See Evan Peters singing Nirvana's 'Come As You Are'

19 November 2014 10:12 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Some of American Horror Story: Freak Show's most talked-about moments this season have been the Baz Luhrmann-esque musical numbers, like Jessica Lange's cover of David Bowie's "Life on Mars" or Sarah Paulson's version of Fiona Apple's "Criminal." Another major modern artist is covered in tonight's installment of AhsEvan Peters, who plays Jimmy Darling, croons Nirvana's classic "Come As You Are." It's part of a crucial episode for Jimmy (and for Peters, who's excellent) as well as Michael Chiklis' Dell Toledo. And there's more music to come: Kathy Bates—yes Kathy Bates »

American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 5 Review

8 November 2014 3:13 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alice Rush reviews the fifth episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show

This week’s episode of Freak Show titled ‘Pink Cupcakes’ really exemplifies one of the best attributes of American Horror Story, and this is exposing and questioning the “norm”. Every theme this show has covered, whether it be a haunted house or an asylum, has managed to use stereotypical horror stimulus but has turned it inside out and upside down. Freak Show is probably the most aesthetically “weird” season of the show and so instead of using the freak aspect to draw in and unsettle the viewer, instead focus is drawn to finding the crazy in the normal. Expectations of this series have been well and truly taken down a different path as we see Twisty, who became the shows scary mascot, being replaced by an even more terrifying figure: Dandy.

This week sees him take centre stage more, »

American Horror Story Freak Show episode 5 review: Pink Cupcakes

7 November 2014 12:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Messy, scary, thrilling and crazy as ever... American Horror Story is a unique piece of work that deserves celebrating...

This review contains spoilers.

4.5 Pink Cupcakes

I have to admit to being a real mark for Dandy Mott, to use a carny term. I'm buying what that weirdo is selling, and to me, he's the most interesting villain figure on a show that is not short of repulsive men (Denis O'Hare's Stanley, Michael Chiklis's Dell) or villains. I also really like that most people, like the late Dora and the currently living Gloria, can see through Dandy's pathetic attempts at sublimating his urges. The big question, particularly around Gloria, is just how afraid she was of her son, and I think the answer is terrified. Clearly there's something in his bloodline that suggests madness, and Gloria outright mentions their long history of cousin-crossing as a possible explanation for Dandy's madness, »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Del's Double Life Revealed, Elsa Gifts Bette & Dot To Murderous Dandy

5 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show, “Pink Cupcakes” opens with Stanley (Denis O’Hare) dreaming about the “Night of Discovery” at the American Morbidity Museum (aka Philadelphia’s Mütter Museum). Though it’s his dream, he’s still not singled out for recognition, which Maggie (Emma Roberts) tells him not to be too surprised about.

American Horror Story: Freak Show Recap

In real time, Stanley and Maggie are still in Jupiter. He’s scheming about how exactly he’d be able to pull off transporting the freaks up to Philadelphia. Maggie doesn’t want to have any part in murdering anyone, though she promises to stay on the inside. Maggie also advises Stanley to “put some lead in your loafers. The only thing people hate more in Jupiter than freaks are poofs.”

At the Motts residence, Gloria (Francs Conroy) comes downstairs to the dining room to find Dora (Patti Labelle) dead. »

Best of Late Night TV: Savannah Guthrie, Matt Lauer Play 'Pop Quiz'; Dr. Phil's Scary Naked Selfie Leaks (Video)

4 November 2014 11:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"Today" co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer were on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, and they were game to rock super-pointy dunce caps and play "Pop Quiz." Last night was an election night, but all the questions were pop culture-related. Jimmy was the ref and the loser was drenched by a giant water balloon. Guess who lost? Let's just say he wasn't feeling too glib after being soaked! He got his revenge on Jimmy, though.

Dr. Phil was on "Conan" and Conan O'Brien asked for Phil's take on the naked celebrity selfies out there. In his opinion, what's going on? Phil said he understands people taking them but not posting them. »

Angela Bassett on Her American Horror Story Character and the Sensitive Michael Chiklis

2 November 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After a long career on the big screen in movies like Waiting to Exhale, What's Love Got to Do With It, and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Angela Bassett has become one of the most recent additions to the troupe of actors that go from season to season to season on American Horror Story.We first saw her in Coven as the snake-charming, witch-cursing New Orleans voodoo queen Marie Laveau, and in this season's Freak Show, she plays the multi-breasted circus performer Desiree Dupree. We caught up with her to talk about subversive horror, playing against type, and shaking her head at the suddenly sensitive Michael Chiklis.I love that you’ve chosen to work on American Horror Story. Does working with an ensemble cast feel very different from some of your other work?I think the great pleasure about it for me is that I started in theater, »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 3: 'Edward Mordrake, Pt. 2'

29 October 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Although there were some serious let-downs in this week's episode of "American Horror Story: Freak Show," it serves as a reminder of just how far the show runners are willing to push past the boundaries of taste and sanity on basic cable. Of course, the Grand Guignol gore and straight-up weirdness is why most of us watch it, so kudos to everyone involved for making this episode the stuff of nightmares.

Spoilers start here. Let's get this show on the road.

Taking Off the Masks

This week's episode caps off, so to speak, the story of Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley) and solves the mystery of who he was looking to take with him into the greenish fog. Edward, as directed by the demonic face on the back of his head, continues peppering each of the performers with questions about their deepest secrets and darkest shames, which is a cool narrative »
