78% American Horror Story: Roanoke (TV, 2016) This is all very fun, but I'm actually more excited -- at least for now -- by the show's format.‐ Slate

88% American Horror Story: Asylum - Madness Ends (TV Episode) If you can get past the roiling surface, I really believe that AHS, in its exploration of some deep American mythology, is one of most thoughtful shows on television, even if it sometimes gets lost in the murk.‐ Slate

94% American Horror Story: Asylum - Spilt Milk (TV Episode) The episode did entice me story-wise in a way I hadn't felt for some time. I'm especially curious about Sister Jude's endgame. ‐ Slate

67% American Horror Story: Asylum - Continuum (TV Episode) I didn't dislike the episode (or the aliens!) -- I just found it a surprising change of pace.‐ Slate

100% American Horror Story: Asylum - The Coat Hanger (TV Episode) I have to say, this was probably the most delightfully sacrilegious episode of AHS yet. We had a baptism after fairly graphic abortion and, just to wrap things up, a live crucifixion. ‐ Slate

91% Cucumber: Series 1 (TV, 2015) This rare combination of smarts and sparkle has long been a hallmark of creator Russell T. Davies' work.‐ Slate

100% Banana: Series 1 (TV, 2015) It's worth noting that the first two episodes of Banana focus on queer people of color (Dean and a lesbian, Scotty, respectively) from different class backgrounds.‐ Slate

62% Ja'mie: Private School Girl: Season 1 (TV, 2013) The deliciously baroque (and strangely feminist) climax of Private School Girl leaves little doubt that Ja'mie is still a very naughty girl with a slew of bad habits-and I hope she never breaks them.‐ Slate

84% American Horror Story: Asylum (TV, 2012-2013) Camp, not horror, is the soul and motivating force of AHS, and if you don't delight in the fate that befalls Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine in the season premiere, you are not resonating at AHS's frequency.‐ Slate
