This season can rightly be characterized as "Creepy Glee," what with all the musical numbers.

As opposed to last week, the new characters ushered in during "Edward Mordrake (Part 1)" are more well-rounded and generally more interesting, which makes for a fun episode.

American Horror Story gets into the spooky spirit this week with the start of its annual Halloween two-parter.

Halloween is obviously a time for telling spooky stories about ghosts and goblins, and for its part, American Horror Story: Freak Show wants to take part in the tradition.

American Horror Story's gotten too long-winded for its own good. The pace is sluggish and a lot of the fear and urgency is quickly draining from the series.

It's Halloween in Florida, which means clowns and clowns and clowns. It's also that very special time of year when people who've lived rough lives somehow discover a new low.

"Edward Mordrake, Part 1" is a pivotal episode for Freak Show, because it marks the first supernatural intrusions of the season.

This episode was both super long and seemingly uneventful.

I'd rather be watching this than half the crap I see on TV, so more power to Murphy for letting his freak flag fly.

Ethel and Elsa are the big reasons to see "Edward Mordrake (Part 1)", but there are a lot of other engaging strands of incident and stylistic detail.

That seems to be the problem with this season so far: There is nothing to unify it and push the action forward.
