I do love some Ryan Murphy flash. Or, did? After a bit, though, the lack of substance creeps in. Early seasons American Horror Story (like Glee, & Nip/Tuck), especially Murder House, were perfectly spooky but there is a sense that someone gave up, moved on. The Apocalypse season, like Cult before it, has gone off the rails. Like I'd missed a few minutes and came back to a different show. Goodbye, Ryan Murphy. I'm done with you and your shallow shows.
