5 Reasons We Love Watching: American Horror Story

Let’s face it — the Fall TV lineup isn’t complete without new episodes of American Horror Story, and after months of rumors, teasers, and terribly disturbing fan art, the Freak Show has raised the curtain! With each new season, AHS just gets creepier and creepier, in the most entertaining way possible. And the best part? Each installment is its own self-contained series of nightmares, so you don’t even have to catch up on past seasons before jumping right on in (though we highly recommend watching ALL OF IT). So without further delay, here are the 5 reasons we’re hooked on this piss-your-pants scary FX show:

5. You can go ahead and expect the unexpected. Awwww, did your favorite character just get killed off? Don’t worry, you probably haven’t seen the last of them:

4. RANDOM-A$$ GUEST STARS comin’ atcha LIKE WHOA:

3. It’s got more twists and turns than that pretzel place over at the mall. OOOOH do you think there’s going to be a human pretzel character on AHS: Freak Show?!?!?:

2. Even three seasons later, Tate and Violet are still the most heart-wrenchingly beautiful couple on FX:

1. Whether she’s playing a nun-gone-wrong or a washed-up HWIC (Head Witch in Charge), Jessica Lange is always the baddest b*tch on earth. Werk:

No, seriously though:

Okay, we're done now.

Jessica Lange IS a huge contributor to why I return after each season!! She is so intense! This list is spot on.

Jessica Lange was amazing on AHS, so sad that she is not returning next season. :(

Indeed, Jessica Lang is one of the most important actor of this show and as always, she does it with style. I loved every season so far, so I can't wait 2 see the latest season, Freak Show. Also the young actors are great, but esp. the guest-actors, like Angela Basset (covenant), Kathy Bates (Covenant & Freak Show) especially and Gabby Sidibe (also Covenant, & The Big C). Doesn't JLange come back for the next season, that s***s, hopefully it will still be as good as it is, 'cause most tv-shows aren't as great as the first season, but this one stays strong so far. Only The Walking Dead and a handful of other shows r still as good as in the beginning and they often stop after 5 to 8 seasons (Dexter, True Blood, The Big C, Breaking Bad etc).

What keeps me coming back is the guy that played Tate. He's gorgeous and a great actor. I just watched a movie he was in but I can't remember the title. It was a horror movie (of course). Freak Show and Asylum are my favorite seasons so far but I have a feeling the next season will be added to that list because it finally answers some of the questions that linger about FS and Asylum. I hear that the new season will involve a little of both seasons and maybe even a prequel.

I am interested in seeing what Lady Gaga will bring to the series, next season.
