    They may be here for some time. Cool. But I don't watch the show. So I guess no biggie for me.

    This season will have a 2016 election theme? Might be the scariest season yet.

    And YES, bring back Twisty!

    That's what they're suggesting, though they have backed away some from the Trump/Clinton vibe (probably because it will a. date the show and b. cause them to lose enough viewers the show would be over).

    I personally think it's a mistake for the reasons I state above. The show has done FAR better when it is timeless. All the seasons save probably Roanoke have fallen into this category - but even Roanoke was far better when they were doing the "Return to Roanoke" part to the end.

    Look, I get the show pushes the envelope - gay couples, cross-dressers, serial murders, taking history and bringing it back to life, the Nazi testing and torture in Asylum, Valentino being a vampire (underused to boot)...

    ... But politicizing this season in such a blatant and obvious way will do nothing more than divide their viewership, and could end their series run.

    Honestly, I think they've made a mistake this season tying in "cult" with the election. All I saw yesterday was a re-enactment of emotions we saw election night and the days afterward.

    There is also zero question the political slant in the story too, and honestly, I don't care what people's political beliefs are - when I watch TV shows (except news) I want to escape reality. Personally, I think this will backfire on them and big long term - and I'm basing this on what I saw, not political beliefs.

    The only good part was with Twisty when he attacked the amorous couple during "Freak Show." Then again - I do think he was underused, even if it meant we got more of Finn Wittrock playing such a nice evil character in Dandy. (Oxymoron is not intended - he was just good in the role, though Valentino is my favorite).

    What I wish they had done instead was focus it on a fake cult in line with Heaven's Gate, The Branch Davidians, Jonesboro - but not any of these literally (unless they tied in real life people into scenes as they did murderers in "Hotel").

    I mean - think about it: they could've featured people who were more than willing to fall into the cult trap, those trying to get out (and failing) and the deceptiveness/brainwashing done with these groups.

    They could also still make it fresh in other manners too that don't incite feelings from the election. I cannot see how Cult fits in at all with what they've filmed or teased for this season.

    Worse - at least so far, I feel that Sarah Paulson is not being used well. All last night I kept thinking she was her actress character from "Roanoke" - all the screaming and crying and pleading. It got to the point of melodrama, which was fine for Audrey (the character last season) but not the new one.

    I couldn't keep watching it - and that says something for a series I've watched with some of the most gruesome scenes out there. Not sure I'm going to try again.

    I agree with everything you said! I did finish watching, but I wasn't thrilled with it. I'm hoping they get away from the heavy political stuff - there's enough of that drama in real life - and veer more into the cult/clown thing. Clowns are frightening enough, I don't need the politicians, too. I did love seeing Twisty again. And yes, Sarah Paulson's character wore thin quickly with all the screeching and crying.

    I'll give it a couple more episodes to grab me, only because I've always loved this series.

    Yeah ... No ... Pretty sure I'm out on this one.
    I watched the full episode, and over-all I was left feeling miserable rather than intrigued, interested or even frightened.

    I don't need TV for "miserable" ... that crap is EVERYwhere, and I try to avoid it whenever I can.
