American Horror Story : American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

Has anybody scene this? Opinions on the shrill right versus left dynamic?

I watched the reruns of this series and would have walked out if I wasn't watching it with friends who insisted we see it. It was some of the most contrived bullshit I've seen yet.

Basically there's a lesbian couple being harassed by a satanic cult. It turns into a morality play about evil Trump and a male-dominated society versus the lesbians who represent the feminist assault on patriarchy.

I realize the film industry is quasi-leftist and present everything from their perspective. But the polar contrast was a bit too cliche. I'm not a Trump fan but equating him to an evil satanic cult was a bit beyond the pale.

Lots of homoeroticism as well, both male and female. And some gory scenes worse than Rob Zombie.

Sounds wacky to me. Think I'll pass.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I only really liked the first season of American Horror Story, then I lost interest.

Same here. I liked them all but couldn't get into Cult. Actually, I also did not care for Roanoke. But I enjoyed every other season.

I'm not sure how I did it, but I did watch the entire season of Roanoke but….I want that part of my life back. It was just that dreadful.

Exactly! I kept thinking, aww c'mon, it can't all be this bad. Right? I mean, look at all the great stuff that came before. It is AHS after all. It's got to get better. Right? Next episode. And then, okay maybe the next one? Alright, one more shot…

………………………………….and nothing got better! Aaaghh!

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

Yes. When Sarah Paulson's character shrieks and cries hysterically when Trump gets elected, yelling "Nooooo, nooooo!" over and over, and is in shambles,….I think that's when I checked out.

I took her character to be a satire of overly dramatic liberals.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I thought it was queer there was a 5 minute scene showing all the characters marking their ballots. One lesbian marks Hillary Clinton. And her partner hesitates and marks Jill Stein of the Green Party. After the election the one woman accuses the other one "I know you voted for Jill Stein!" Such brazen partisan bullshit on the part of the series producers.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I watched this season in October and was entertained by it. I saw it as a parody of the left and the right. It wasn’t actually good, but it was entertaining.

My favorite seasons are 1, 2, and 5. I hated five at first, but I rewatched it twice on Netflix, and now I think it’s great.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

American Horror Story was brilliant for the first 5 seasons, one of the best shows on TV.
After that it got really bad really fast.
Season 6 was bad but watchable
Season 7 was awful but I forced myself to watch it
Season 8 was unwatchable - I always watch the show the day it’s aired but it took me months to get through this pile of steaming shit.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I had to force myself to watch every single episode - they ruined every existing character and storyline, and it was just plain bad. The only thing I liked about the entire season was Leslie Grossman’s character.

It uses characters from Murder House, Coven and Hotel - and destroys them and ruins storylines which had previously ended perfectly and didn’t need retouching :/

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I don’t recall anything from Asylum or Freakshow, but it was set in the modern day so that’s probably why. There might’ve been but I’ve blocked most of the series out my memory haha

I’d rank them like this including Murohy’s other shows:

Asylum
Murder House
Hotel
Versace
Pose
Scream Queens
Freak Show
OJ Simpson
Glee
Coven
9-1-1
Roanoke
Bette and Joan
Cult
Apocalypse

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

Urgh he was terrible - I think he was the reason I couldn’t enjoy the season since most things revolved around him.
He was brilliant in Versace, but in this everything he did made me cringe or laugh from awkwardness. The eyeliner, the hair, the clothes… after an apocalypse?! I just couldn’t and wouldn’t buy it 😂

I just knew you would like this show. You like everything that’s absolutely awful.

Nooooo, he looked as though he was an extra in Twinklight (the gay porno version of Twilight, obviously) - I couldn’t take him seriously, and I think numerous times when he cried I literally laughed because his acting was so bad. Although Kathy Bates (who is usually a phenomenal actress) was equally as bad!

Yeah that episode got me! The one which got me the most was the one which shows Finn Wittrock’s character in the navy and meeting Andrew - that episode broke me!

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

Pose broke me too 😂 it was so fun but also one of the most devastating shows I’ve ever watched! It was heartbreaking to see what LGBT people in that era went through, but also so uplifting to see how much fun they had
I’m excited for season 2!

I’ve heard the next seasons of Crime Story (Hurricane Katrina) and Feud (Diana and Charles) have been cancelled :/ that’s disappointing

I dunno about the hottest :/ they’re all ‘gorgeous’, but I can’t think of many in the Murphy-verse who I am thirsty for haha
I’ll have to have a think and get back to you with whom 😂

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

Haha that scene was hot, but I think the only ones I’d actually wanna fuck are Matt Bomer, the cop from Cult I’ve forgot the actors name, Andre Holland who played Matt in Roanoke, Zachary Quinto and maybe a few others who I can’t think of.

And yeah, I usually hate bad acting (I can’t stand any scene with Billie Lourd or Adina Porter), I didn’t mind that not all of the actors in pose weren’t brilliant, just out of the principle of what it was. I think Evan Peters, Kate Mara, Billy Porter and the young gay guy were the only really good ones. The ones who played the trans girls and other gays were bad to okay but I just didn’t care - it was such a great show

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I think I got through 2 episodes of CULT but nope. For me to get bored of AHS that quickly, it has to be dreadful, because I've really enjoyed them all. Nothing beats the first one, but they're all still pretty good, except for Roanoke.

The problem with the last one is that it keeps switching up what's really going on, and not in fun, twisty ways by evolving the plot. There are things that are just pointless. It's style over substance and it started out really strong.

It's nothing like the trailer makes it out to be.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I agree with you. The only season I managed to get through was season 3 Coven. The rest of the series bored me. I didn't like the stories, the plot or the characters.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

The first season started off really well and was genuinely creepy, then it just fell off a cliff.

Like Conor McGregor with a samurai sword on roller blades

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

That's where we differ. I didn't like the first season at all. I only liked season 3 Coven. Oh well.

Re: American Horror Story 7th Season: Lesbians versus Trump

I pretty much stopped watching after the third season

I like Dylan McDermott so that's what got me interested, love Murder House

I didn't know about Danny Huston until Coven and I find him very hot

Huston is the leader of some very nasty vampires in that film.
