FX Releases Teaser
For Ryan Murphy’s
AMERICAN HORROR STORY!!
FX’s “American Horror Story” is the latest from Ryan Murphy, who created “Glee” before he wrote and directed “Eat Pray Love.”
Premiering Oct. 5, it follows a couple and their teen daughter after they move in to a really haunted house. Its cast includes Connie Britton (“Friday Night Lights”), Dylan McDermott (“The Practice”), Francis Conroy (“Six Feet Under”), Denis O’Hare (“True Blood”), Taissa Farmiga (kid sister of Vera) and Jessica Lange (“Tootsie”).
Its pilot screened at the Television Critics Association event early this month. Here’s what NPR’s Linda Holmes wrote :
American Horror Story is emphatically not for everybody. It's a genre piece, it's very campy, and a significant number of critics in the theater with me didn't like it at all. I, on the other hand, did.
FX just released a teaser for the project:

My second first...if you catch my drift.
Aug. 19, 2011, 2:23 p.m. CST
this could go either way though...I'm not anxiously awaiting the premiere or anything...will wait to see what others think before investing in this
Aug. 19, 2011, 2:24 p.m. CST
I suppose i should actually bother to read the article here. What's it about? Hold on... Something by the Glee guy? Great. That's ten seconds of my life i'll never get back.

But I sure do hate me some Ryan Murphy.
Aug. 19, 2011, 2:37 p.m. CST
Who woud've thunk it. I actually was faintly curious about this show, but my interest has evaporated after that teaser.
Aug. 19, 2011, 2:50 p.m. CST
how many gays cried themselves to sleep when that flick failed to break the top 10 its first weekend? FAIL MUTHAFUCKA!
Aug. 19, 2011, 3:03 p.m. CST
which I liked. May give this a shot.
Aug. 19, 2011, 3:07 p.m. CST
I only like vintage campy horror - i.e. stuff that is only campy in retrospect but was played straight or mostly straight at the time. Contemporary campy horror, of the trying-too-hard-to-be-hip-and-ironic variety, does nothing for me. Also, I hate Glee and everything it has come to represent, and I say that as a card-carrying cock-sucking faggot. Enough!
Aug. 19, 2011, 3:10 p.m. CST
which I liked. Will give this a shot.
Aug. 19, 2011, 3:30 p.m. CST
I'm in need for a new surrealistic tv series.
Aug. 19, 2011, 3:31 p.m. CST
I did enjoy that series.
Aug. 19, 2011, 3:32 p.m. CST
As much as I despise FX, Ill check this out just for Mrs. Taylor.
Aug. 19, 2011, 4 p.m. CST
True, but they also renewed Louie for another season, so I feel that puts them back to even.
Aug. 19, 2011, 5:03 p.m. CST
Shes a very sexy woman who ive only seen in FNL street clothes.
Aug. 19, 2011, 6:11 p.m. CST
It wants to be sultry and sexy and funny and scary, and it's 0 for 4. Hasn't anyone learned yet that CG effects are not scary? Certainly not mediocre ones like these.

Aug. 19, 2011, 8:13 p.m. CST
...then this show is garbage. Thus says the Lord. Praise be.
Aug. 19, 2011, 8:30 p.m. CST
...I've seen the first episode on onDemand. Its utter crap. They've actually made a BORING softcore series that rivals the ones from the early nineteen nineties. The sex scenes are incrediably short and just as amateurish as ones you'd find on a ABC FAMILY tween show; the people don't even hump, they just sway back and forth. The scenes are cut like an action film and the camera work is typical of the now infamous Cinemax dichotomy: always moving, and close ups that somehow never show anything. It also has bizarre cuts to interviews that are supposed to be funny, but are more like desperate attempts of the producers screaming at the audience "Look! Its DIFFERENT! We're doing something different!!" Another show premiering is SKIN TO THE MAX, which is, I guess, a documentary show following European couples to sex clubs. Its actually better than CHEMISTRY because its a softcore porn show, that actually shows sex. BUT, like all of Cinemax's shows now, its shot with the same continuous moving camera, and cut just as fast as a Michael Bay film. The last sequence involving the blond is actually pretty hot. But, could of been better if it wasn't cut so fast and the camera man stood still for a while. So, I hope you people enjoy STRIKE BACK. Its because of that show, and the two others coming, that we don't have anyplace on premium cable to go for good softcore porn anymore. But, at least Cinemax is making money. Hail to the establishment!

Sorry but I'm tired of committing to a series only to see it yanked because it wasn't number 1 for 4 weeks in a row.
Aug. 19, 2011, 11:09 p.m. CST
That was a Fox show too right? Did they choose to go with this instead? Lame.
Aug. 19, 2011, 11:33 p.m. CST
She looks hot. This show intrigues me a bit.

Dipshit... I'll give it a sample. And NO, Locke & Key was passed on by Fox -- it wasn't ever going to air on FX.
Aug. 20, 2011, 9:01 a.m. CST
Which would still make no sense as to why this show couldn't be on FX and L&K couldn't be on FOX. But I digress. This looks alright....could really go either way. It looks stylish but it should be scary first, and stylish.....8th.

So if this little ditty survives to see more than one season, it'll probably end up in some even stranger places. I don't think he's ever had a cast of this caliber though, so who knows?

This looks like stuff that was filmed explicitly to be a teaser, so not sure how much of a taste of the show it'll actually be. I'll be tuning in though, hope it's worthwhile.
Aug. 20, 2011, 11:34 a.m. CST
Nip/Tuck quickly collapsed under the weight of its own indulgences and Glee would be unwatchable if not for Jane Lynch and Lea Michelle's singing voice. His writing is tone deaf and cliched more often than not and only gets a pass because he wants us to think it's a piss take.
Aug. 20, 2011, 3:28 p.m. CST
Is it Dr Who kinda campy..or Batman the 60's TV series unbearable campy? What a shame..
Aug. 20, 2011, 3:29 p.m. CST
Some of the teasers make it seem a bit interesting and I like a lot of the cast. Will give the pilot a shot..

I used to enjoy (not love) Glee, being a musical theatre buff/frequent participant, but it's lost what little charm it had when it became "what classic song will the teenage caricatures played by 30 year olds butcher this week?" ...on second thought, maybe it's always sucked. Plus, that whole debacle where Dave Grohl called Murphy out on his shit pretty much sealed it for me. Sorry kids, but if it's between you and Dave, your little show can go fuck itself.

That's right. YAWN.
Aug. 20, 2011, 6:15 p.m. CST
For those of you who don't know, that means there will be homosexual characters and the monsters will hum Journey songs.
Aug. 20, 2011, 6:57 p.m. CST
He has Tim Minear (X-Files, Angel, Dollhouse, Terriers) working with Jennifer Salt and Brad Falchuk from Nip/Tuck, so there's some decent talent putting this together.
Aug. 20, 2011, 9:27 p.m. CST
This looks like ass. Bring back Firefly!

The show now.
Aug. 21, 2011, 7:14 p.m. CST
What the hell? I thought this show was a reality show about people wanting to be scared and then they go to the house and scare them with that liquid leather person
so what the fuck was that all about?

And the reality gimmick is a MUCH cooler idea. I would watch that, but I guess that would really just be a Scare Tactics rip-off then.
Aug. 22, 2011, 10:34 a.m. CST
Guess I'll be watching.

Nerds really will complain about anything.
Aug. 23, 2011, 12:24 a.m. CST
...that means, you, yourself, are said "nerd". Also, we're supposed to complain about things. Being human means having independent thought and questioning what is happening around you. Including softcore porn.
Aug. 23, 2011, 10:13 p.m. CST
Nip Tuck was bullshit. So poorly written you wonder if the network really paid any attention to the show. The characters were paper-thin cartoony imitations of humans, the plots nothing but trying to top last week's outlandishness...it gave me a headache every time my girlfriend would sit down to watch. Glee...well...fuck Glee. And now he thinks he can do horror ? Check please
