I didn’t care for the premiere. It had the 80s vibe down, but it was neither scary nor funny. Not sure what they were going for. Didn’t work as an homage nor as a satire of the 80s. It just seemed like a tired rehash. I’m sure they’ve got more up their sleeves, but that’s the most I’ve ever been disappointed in AHS so far.
I did like Billie Lourd. She was terrific and it was nice to see her in a more upbeat/badass role this year.
I may be in the minority, but I thought it was horrible. Worst season by far, imo. But then again, I have zero sentimentality toward the 80s and that may have played a part. It’s the only season I have not purchased on blu-ray to keep for future rewatchings.
