Critic reviews for Room 33
In another stalled mid-season episode, we find out what makes the Countess tick and why motherhood is so damn difficult despite all the modern amenities of back-alley abortions, vampirism, and nannies.
Do we care about John Lowe at all? What about whatever Matt Bomer's character's name is? Do we care about him? I'm kind of interested in seeing how Iris, Royale and the now-enraged Liz Taylor will team up to take down the Cortez gang.
The sequence is gross, bleak and camp... so just like pretty much every other moment in Hotel's preceding five episodes, then. But if you think it can't get any worse (better), you haven't been paying attention.
Kudos to AHS for making us laugh in addition to making us cry. And making us watch blood.
Once again, Denis O'Hare completely stole the show, but the most important thing that happened - as far as longtime fans are concerned - has to be that opening sequence, and all the interesting inter-series connections it brought up.
