American Horror Story: Freak Show – Season 4, Episode 7: “Test of Strength”

“Test of Strength” is mainly set-up for the next episode, along with some bad karaoke for good measure. I love Evan Peters as much as the next girl, but I did not need to witness his dismal Kurt Cobain impersonation. As much as I like this season, I could really do without the musical interludes.

American Horror Story Coven, Episode 302: “Boy Parts”

I’ve never written about American Horror Story, mainly because I like to zone out and enjoy Evan Peters after a stressful Sunday of analyzing The Walking Dead. However, in light of the fact that The Walking Dead has not required much thought or analysis as of late, I have found myself scrutinizing the new season of AHS. Mind you, past experience with this show has prepared me to be fully disappointed by the season’s conclusion, but for the time being, I have been geeking out.
