This week saw the mid-season finale of Freak Show and what I would deem a return to form for the series. This week’s episode ‘Orphans’ not only tugs at the heart strings of its viewers but reintroduces a character from a past season and certifies the link in the anthology series that co-creator Ryan Murphy outlined a few months ago. Whilst I’m still undecided on how to feel about linking all of the separate seasons together, in the case of Pepper, of whom this episode heavily focuses on, it does work to an advantage, delicately stringing her tragic life together in an extremely heart wrenching way.
Utilising one of the shows best features, flashbacks, Elsa tells the tale of how Pepper was brought to the freak show. She is revealed to be the very first act »

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Laurie Metcalf
The Show | Getting On
The Episode | “Doctor Death”
The Airdate | December 14, 2014
The Performance | From the very first episode of Getting On, Metcalf’s self-absorbed, perpetually beleaguered Dr. Jenna James has been a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown (or perhaps even a psychotic break). In the show’s Season 2 finale — as her fledgling hospice program became the focus of a racketeering and anti-kickback proceeding in California Superior Court — Metcalf conveyed her character’s denial, panic, scheming and, ultimately, her acceptance of a probably grim fate, »

Now that American Horror Story is officially on break until 2015, we're doing anything to distract us as we wait for the final episodes of Freak Show. We've already spent plenty of time theorizing about season five and guessing how the seasons are all connected, but we still need more. And what better way to occupy your thoughts than with resident Ahs hottie Evan Peters? Now it's time to just bask in all of his hot pictures, and when you're done with that, take a look back at his first-ever red carpet appearance. »
A new TV spot has been released for American Horror Story: Freak Show, which is set to return on January 7th. The new spot is called "Next On: Magical Thinking," and it gives us a look at what's in store for fans in the second half of the season. It also gives us our first look at Neil Patrick Harris, who plays a salesman, magician, and new owner of the freak show. He will appear in the last two episodes of the season, as you'll see in this trailer, though, he comes off as a really creepy individual who turns out to be a real sicko. This has been a really twisted but great season, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes to a close.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Once Upon a Time, Hart of Dixie, NCIS and White Collar!
1 | Should we read anything into the fact that Saturday Night Live host Martin Freeman omitted Sherlock from his list of credits during the monologue? Which of Taran Killam’s impressions was more impressive: Alan Rickman or Gollum? And has the show offered up a less funny sketch this season than the inscrutable “Pine River Lodge Tree Lighting” (with Freeman and Kenan Thompson »
"American Horror Story: Freak Show" is taking a little holiday hiatus, but FX has offered us a little Christmas treat to tide us over until January 7. This teaser introduces Neil Patrick Harris as Chester, a puppet-loving performer who takes over Elsa's freak show. It looks like Dot and Bette (Sarah Paulson) will finally get a chance at love, or at least lust, thanks to Chester, which opens up a few cans of worms.
First, Dandy (Finn Wittrock) finds out about their new paramour and is super upset, which is cool because it's been at least a week since Dandy's had a huge tantrum. Second, where the heck is Elsa off to? How in the world is this Hollywood plan coming to fruition? Third, it looks like Chester's sidekick isn't just some wooden dummy; we get a little glimpse of "Ahs" alum Jamie Brewer made up just like Chester's puppet, and »

This review contains spoilers.
On a show full of great characters and stunning transformations, none of them is as impressive as the hours of makeup it must take to change Naomi Grossman into Pepper the pinhead. Ms Grossman is a very cute, appealing girl, and when you look at her next to Pepper—even with a shaved head—it's tough to reconcile that these two are in fact the same person. It's stunning work, but perhaps more stunning than Grossman's transformation is her staggering acting ability. She doesn't speak much in either season she's featured, but Pepper is an indelible presence who steals focus in every scene she's in, and it's all thanks to the actress behind the makeup.
No more is that on display than in Orphans. This is the »
Neil Patrick Harris is about to appear on American Horror Story: Freak Show...and star in our nightmares. We finally have footage of the How I Met Your Mother alum's highly anticipated guest-starring role on the FX thriller and let's just say it's as creepy as you might imagine. When we first got wind that Harris' dream to be on Ahs was coming true, the only detail we could find about who he would be playing was "salesman." But now that we've seen the trailer for Ahs's midseason premiere, we can officially confirm that, yup, Harris is yet another terrifying character on a show filled with terrifying characters. There's just no escaping them! Check out »
