American Horror Story: Roanoke Episodes 1-3 Reviews

Because I only just decided to write AHS reviews, I will be giving short, summarized reviews of each episode and my thoughts on the season as a whole. Starting next week, there will be more in-depth reviews.

Episode 1

This was a very disappointing premiere. I was really hoping for some more action (or for SOMETHING to happen at least), but it didn't really go anywhere. This is my least favorite AHS premiere ever. I hated the documentary style.

Numerical Score: 5/10
Grade: D

Episode 2
This episode was certainly better. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes that Denis O'Hare appeared in. He's always a delight. I'm hoping for more scenes with him in it. The season is getting on the right track. I just want more Kathy Bates. The scenes with the nurses were also very good. I want to know more about them.

Numerical Score: 6.5
Grade: C+

Episode 3
I really enjoyed this episode. The documentary part is starting to get entertaining, and I loved the interaction between Lee and the Interviewer. I'm also in love with Cricket. He's my favorite character thus far. The scenes of The Butcher were also great. Kathy Bates is amazing. For the first time this season, I'm actually excited for the next episode. I can't wait to see the next few episodes. This was the best AHS episode since Freak Show.

Numerical Score: 9
Grade: A-

Loose Ends:
- I need to see more of Cricket. He's such an interesting character.
- Kathy Bates is so fantastic
- This season is getting so much better
- Why is Denis O'Hare barely a part of this season so far?
- Can you guys stop killing all of these pigs?
- Who the fork is Priscilla?
- Please, bring back the opening sequence.
- You got me hooked again, Ryan Murphy!
