    American Horror Story: Coven

    Fellow AHS fans..what do you think of Coven?

    I have to admit I wasn't blown away by the 1st episode. I did enjoy episode 2..
    I just thought the introduction of the Sarah Paulson character's husband came out of the blue. Does this guy live at the boarding school? Obviously he knows she's a witch. I'm sure we'll get a flashback at some point with the back story on that one...

    I only have basic cable so I'll have to wait until it appears somewhere else other than FX before is can watch it.

    I haven't seen it yet, it's on my DVR. It wasn't even on my radar until my sister told me to watch....says it's wonderful, and I wasn't quite convinced, even though I love Jessica Lange. But I decided I had to see it after I saw The People's Couch on Bravo. I'll check back, for sure.

    It's my second favorite show on TV right now, just behind "The Walking Dead".

    It takes place in one of my favorite cities. I've visited New Orleans 6 times in my life. I believe it's better than the first 2 seasons so far. And you can't ask for a better cast.

    Waiting for sparks to fly between Queenie and Delphine.

    American Horror Story: Coven

    I am loving it. The cast is simply amazing and the delivery of some of the lines is just impeccable. I did think the introduction of the husband was really random but oh well, that's a pretty small blemish so far on what is shaping up to be a great season.

    I like how "American Horror Story" does a different story every season. With the actors playing different roles. It's a good concept.

    And I remember when this was first announced that I thought it was the dumbest thing to have the same actors but different characters. I couldn't imagine it working. I am so dumb sometimes.

    I agree and I feel like it's getting better every season. Love the Coven, it's definitely my favourite so far.

    I've been watching since the beginning, and so far I'm loving this season. Lange, Bates, and Bassett are almost too much awesomeness for one show.

    I have watched from the beginning as well. Loved the first season, but really never connected to Asylum. Coven; however, is fabulous! I agree wholeheartedly about Lange, Bates, and Bassett, but I have to say, Emma Roberts, Jamie Brewer, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson are also contributing greatly to the season. Rabe and Paulson are no brainers, but I didn't expect to like Emma Roberts so much. I'm always in awe of Jamie Brewer and how complex her characterizations are. I'm curious to see Patti Lupone next week and what she brings to the season.

    Love the addition of Gabourey Sidibe to the cast. She is such a talent and I love her character's personality and attitude as well as her powers.

    I feel like Sidibe has played the same person in every role since Precious. I still like her but I have yet to see her show any range whatsoever.

    The powerful interaction on screen among Bassett-Bates-Lange is mesmerizing. That alone is worth the show! But, Lily Rabe is also a scene stealer and all of Paulson, Sidibe, Farmiga should never be ignored.

    It's almost like the high talent of the actors is driving all of them to give their best.

    I can see all 3 actresses nominated for Golden Globes. Possibly Emmy too.

    Me too...and I have to say, the last scene in the 2nd episode (with Lange/Bates sitting on the bench) was perfection.

    I have also been watching this series from the beginning...thanks to my daughter who was so hyped about season 1 & demanded we watch it. She also got me hooked on Ray Donovan...but AHS is my favourite series by far. So happy to have fellow fans to chat with!!

    Has anyone else noticed Lange's vein throbbing in her neck during some of her scenes? It is unnatural looking and very distracting at times. I know she can't help it but just curious if it has caught anyone else's eye.

    Looking forward to seeing Patti LuPone this season- She is my all time favorite Broadway star... I'll be interested to see what character they have her playing- I think I saw a bit on the preview of the next episode, but not enough to be able to tell how she plays in. Not sure- I may be an episode behind... Need to check my DVR!

    Found this snippet on Lupone's character in episode #3: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...ytheNumbers%29

    Fiona (Jessica Lange) takes on an unlikely protégé. A guilt-ridden Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) tries to give Kyle (Evan Peters) his old life back. Madison (Emma Roberts) has a fiery exchange with Joan Ramsey (Patti LuPone), a new neighbor (Written by James Wong; Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon).
    Good news. The second episode did better than the premiere episode.

    Those are my two favorites too! You're my new best friend!!

    I'm loving Coven so far! My family is from Louisiana and I've always been fascinated by and loved the culture around New Orleans. I grew up hearing the stories about the real Marie Laveau so I was very interested to see how they were going to incorporate her into this season. I've been to Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo on Bourbon Street before and it's pretty awesome. I also knew about Lalaurie (so much history in New Orleans!) and I love how they incorporated the fact that no one really knows what happen to her after that fire/raid on her house. People say she went back to France but no one knows for sure...come to find out she's buried outside the house!! Lol! This is the first time they've used actual historical figures in a story which adds a different level of intrigue to it IMO.

    There are some fabulous actresses in this show. Lange is amazing, Bassett is incredible and has always been very underrated IMO, and Bates is wonderful too. All of the supporting actors are great as well. I'm excited about this season. Asylum was interesting but it wasn't nearly as good as season 1. This season feels like it's shaping up to be more on par with season 1.

    Yes, I noticed that for the first time when she and Lalaurie were sitting on the bench. It's pretty freaky!
