Thank goodness, American Horror Story is back in top form. It was wonderful to see prior characters mix in with the new storylines and with new characters. Perhaps Ryan Murphy will consider this magic formula in future seasons.
Unfortunately, the writer's attempt to make a statement failed to land. I stuck by the series because of the legacy of its prior seasons. If this were my first experience with the series, I would not have bothered to finish this season or move on to the next.
The same magic that made the original series shine is present in the revival. Roseanne Barr is the straw the stirs the drink, though the ensemble cast is nothing to sneeze at. John Goodman and Laurie Metcalfe, along with Roseanne Barr, comprise my all-time favourite sitcom theme. It is a shame that Roseanne Barr's personal issues lead to her exit, though I am hopeful that her legacy remains the ground-breaking, hilarious, and always thoughtful approach to the genre. Like Roseanne herself once said, this is the best sitcom ever made.
A brilliant work of art that I am, frankly, shocked made it to the increasingly mindless network television landscape. It was a treat to, once again, experience a sitcom that had something to say and goes on to say it ways that are virtually unheard of in the genre. This is must watch television. I strongly recommend it.
