I didn't see a thread for this so here it is!

Who's going to be tuning in tonight for the premier?

Feel free to post your favorite teaser trailers! Just the teaser of the clown scares the shiitake out of me.

I watched it. That clown? nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope so much no.

I'm going to put the rest of my disjointed thoughts under a spoiler. I'm not sure how spoiler-y they are but I don't know proper tv show discussion etiquette.

Spoiler: show
Why was Jimmy feeling up women at a tupperware party? I think I missed something there. I also feel like we're going to be seeing him doing stuff like that a lot. Claw hands; great for finger banging!

Did I mention how much that clown freaks me out? He does. I almost hurled (doesn't help that I'm sick!) when he was stabbing that teenager. It was the sounds, they were awful! Eugh.

I wasn't expecting that musical number. I'm surprised David Bowie didn't hop in for that.

The background noises were distractingly loud. I couldn't make out what they were saying half of the time.

I love how they did the twins!

Hulu tricked me. The episode isn't available - only a preview of it.

Boo-urns.

because they needed money. (you hear him tell his mom that he didn't feel right charging the one woman because she came so quickly.

i'm glad it wasn't just us. were you also streaming through fx.com? we loaded it up the next day, and the levels were so much better. (even then, we're still going to have to use the subtitles because jessica lange is just speaking so quietly.)

Oh, ok. That makes sense! I didn't hear him say that.

No, I wasn't streaming. I was watching it on TV. Hopefully the next episodes will have better sound quality.

Jessica Lange's German accent...not sure if I'm really digging it, but it could be too early to judge. And I could hardly hear what she was saying, too. :(

And Kathy Bate's accent...what...is it supposed to even be? O.o

i definitely hear philadelphia in there, but other words are just plain wrong. (unless the dialogue coach knows more about the philly dialect from that era than i do, and that's extremely likely since i wasn't around back then and stuff.) i am officially saying she grew up in philly, and picked up random pronunciations of other words from moving around a bunch once she became a carny.

in an ryan murphy interview he said that kathy bates accent is baltimorese.
audio quality was bad. i had to wear headphones in order figure out what jessica lange was saying.

oh! that makes a lot of sense. the words that didn't sound philadelphian sounded southern. makes sense that it'd be by the mason dixon line. thanks!

I need to rewatch the episode. I must have fallen asleep at some point and have no idea what you all are talking about.

I'm still not sure how I feel about this yet. It was really freaky and that clown was just a bit much for me. I was exhausted from work and thought I might have nightmares about that clown (I generally don't have nightmares but if I'm extremely stressed and tired...who knows what sets my dreams off).

The audio - I thought it was me having hearing issues. I hope its better next time around. I couldn't figure out if the accent was making it difficult for me to understand but the music was also quite loud.

The musical number at the end. I had that song in my head for days (chalk it up to the exhaustion).

I'm going to give this another shot, watch a few more episodes. But it did not grab me like last seasons did. Which BTW was just released on video so I'm going to have to watch this one again.

I loved the first episode! This one totally has me hooked, so long as they don't go speeding into "what the fizzle" territory again. I also couldn't hear Jessica Lange, but I do love the background noises and music in this season so far.

I didn't watch. Worth checking it out? I've long been intrigued by the American Horror Story franchise but never watched.

I watched the first 2 episodes and I'm still on the fence. I find they always go too overboard with this show to the point where it's just to nonsensical for me to care. Do we really need to have 4-5 people who are a-ok committing murder barely 2 shows in?
And that clown! Sweet jaysus! I've never had a clown fear before but it's never to late to form an irrational fear! I knew there had to be something even more messed up hiding behind that creepy smile mask *shiver*

Holy crepe! I just realized that the brother from the Drew Carey show is the clown on AHS!

Also, I realized while watching episode 2 last night that the music and some of the camera angles and whatnot remind me of A Clockwork Orange.

episode 2...i slightly jumped when the clown mask briefly slipped off. i don't have a fear of clowns but that scene really got me. good god.

as much as i like fiona and bowie, i wish the show used songs from that time period instead.

One song is fun, more is annoying. Not sold on this season even with Dandy being so awesome and 3 boob Bassett. I dont care about anyone on the show...I might back out of it if it doesnt get better.

I agree with both of you- I'd like music from that period and the songs are getting a little much. One fun one is great but I don't want to watch a musical. Otherwise, I'm loving this season.

I'm blanking on the name of the actress doing the singing, but she can't sing, and I agree, I'd rather hear songs from the time period. Anyway, I just reached my gore, torture, brutality limit and will not be watching the rest of this season. I'm not really sure why I bothered trying. I enjoyed season one, ducked out on season two, didn't bother with three, and then somehow thought it was a good idea to give it another go. Nope.

This season really speaks to me, I'm pretty hopelessly obsessed with it.. I'm more than comfortable with the dark subject matter too. I was a carny when I was in my late teens and it really gave me a direction to go in life!.. I want something horrible to happen to that little shiitake that's hanging out with the harshest clown ever.
