Did You Know?


At about 26 minutes into the episode, as the elevator is rising, the metal frame of the elevator door shows the bust of a 16/17th century explorer (noted by the Elizabethan collar and morion helmet). This was presumably a clue towards the Roanoke season. See more »


When Alex is shown in the bathtub after slitting her wrists, the cuts are vertical, but in the following scene at the therapist's office the scars are horizontal. See more »


James March: There are places in my murder palace that have sat in cold neglect for far too long. You can put them to good use, old boy.
Tristan Duffy: I'm listening.

Finn Whitrock is horrendous
8 November 2020 | by cymrycatSee all my reviews

I'm sorry. Finn is horrendously a BAD ACTOR and is NOT IN THE LEAST BIT ATTRACTIVE.

Despite AHS building up this dog of an actor, he is hugely ugly and not in the least bit talented in this series. The producers should cut him loose abd save their product from this tyrnnaically inept and horrendous "actor". He IS NOT ATTRACTIVE. He IS NOT TALENTED. He is a WASTE of film.

Please, dont EVER cast him or Lady Gaga in this series EVER AGAIN. Period. They are not worth a penny of what they have been paid for this series. Also, there us one of the nkn-caucasian actresses who is an affront to anyone who values good acting (I forget her name but she was in True Blood and this series) who lacks talent. Maybe God director and the producers just really lack an ability to cast GOOD actors in this series.

Please, refrain from casting these "actors: in the future. Jessica Lange also is over rated and needs to be let go. Period. Let's get back to TALENTED actors and not just who will work for peanuts and/or exposure. Talent goes a LONG way towards giving a series staying power. The most recent installment of AHS (1984) was unwatchable.
