Last week marked American Horror Story’s season 4 premiere. You guys might have figured this out about me, but I’m super lazy and fall very quickly behind with current television. I’m impatient and lazy, which is why binge-watching is my thing. Without this blog to hold me accountable, some amazing shows get dropped. Well, that’s what happened with American Horror Story last season.
After watching Freak Show last week, I knew I HAD to finished Coven. Honestly, Coven spoke to me more than any other season. Witchcraft has always interested me and I’m always drawn to it as a theme. The fashion completely inspired me as well– all black everything! I love the aesthetic of the whole season, and I can confidently call it my favorite. The best thing about Coven, and any season of American Horror story is the fabulous Jessica Lange.
If I hadn’t already had a Wednesday post this week, it would’ve been Woman Crush Wednesday: Jessica Lange. I could literally watch this woman smoke a cigarette for the rest of my life.
Good god this woman is so freaking sexy! She plays her roles with such presence– we see her as an incredibly powerful character, and with such genuine vulnerability in each of her AHS roles. This is especially true of Fiona Goode in Coven– supremely powerful, but sick and dying, and of Elsa Mars in Freak Show– in charge, but tragic.
I’m absolutely in love with Jessica Lange, and I can only hope she changes her mind and chooses to continue American Horror Story. I don’t know if I want to watch this show without her.
Anyway, this is a great show to watch for the Halloween season! Let this serve as my first installment of the Countdown to Halloween.
What’s your favorite AHS season?
What do you think of Freak Show so far?
Though Freak Show is not one of the shows I’m recapping this season, I’ll be doing my best to keep up! That being said, there will be a couple weeks that are TV recap heavy coming up. Stay tuned to see what new shows will appear on this blog!
