I watched the first two seasons of American Horror Story then bailed for several years. A friend recommended I watch Coven and that got me restarted. I am currently watching AHS '84.

It's far from a perfect show and has a few tics that I don't love BUT in general I like watching it and I like how they play around with actors cast in type and against type and, as in Roanoke, even messed explicitly with the idea of actors playing actors playing people who are actors or something like that.

Anyway, any of you have favorite episodes, characters, arcs?

I really enjoyed COVEN.  I liked FREAK SHOW for the first four episodes or so, until they turned the focus away from Twisty the Clown. I missed a couple seasons after but did jump in for 1984 because I'm a sucker for all things slasher. It had the good and bad of most other seasons - some fun moments, but mostly nonsensical plotting. But I liked most of it anyway.

I did like the first two seasons as well, the plotting was mostly a little tighter and it they didn't go off into the ozone like later seasons have.

I go back and forth on the zaniness. I think I ultimately applaud them for the crazy left turns they take. I really like the opportunities they give to actors playing way different characters in various arcs. That's really fun to me.
