Ms Paulson was, as usual,

Perfect. That woman is one of the finest actors ever. She is so precise and delivers her dialog to perfection. Running her a close second in Ratched is the person who conceived and designed the sets and clothing. I got the distinct feeling that he/she designed and implemented every scene down to a gnat's eyelash. Cynthia Nixon was wonderful. And the color coordination of the clothing and scenery deserve a special shoutout. An all around great effort by Ryan Murphy and Netflix.
