American Horror Story “The Seven Wonders”

Coven Finale.

Well, here we are.  The COVEN finale!  Who will be the next Supreme?  Will it be Zoe, Madison, Misty, or Queenie?

It’s Cordelia.

Yeah, I don’t much care.

Nothing about becoming the new Supreme worked for me as an overarching plot.  Much of COVEN was filled with this self-serious attitude, where characters were either unpleasant or ineffective.  American Horror Story is a campy and ridiculous show even at the best of times, and this episode opens with a Stevie Nicks music video for no other reason than because they could.

Oh, and if you thought killing off a Jessica Lange character off-camera is a bit of a cheat, congratulations, you won’t be surprised to find out she only temporarily faked her own death.

I get the impression American Horror Story only works best in spurts, so I’ll be taking a break from this show for now.  Fortunately, two of my past Tuesday shows returned after a fashion.  So, next week we’ll have the Black Mirror special Bandersnatch.

And then, one week later, we’ll jump back to see if True Detective  course-corrected after season two.

That stuff should, at least, be less campy than anything from American Horror Story.  We’ll see about maybe checking out the FREAKSHOW when that’s done.
