‘American Horror Story: Delicate’ actually looks promising…

… for a newer AHS season at least. The show has gone downhill every season post Coven, but this looks like it may be the best season we will get in recent years.

We shall see.

You think that Emma Roberts, Cara Delevigne and Kim Kardashian look promising. The most promising the show has been in years?

Um... yeah, I definitely wish you a lot of luck with that, OP.

I really loved most seasons, but there's no way in Hell that this season is promising. Double Feature was WEAK, but atleast there wasn't a Kardashian involved.

Emma Roberts has been acting since she was a child. Including her with Kim K, a famous for being famous reality star, and Cara, a nepo model who has a career because her parents bought it for her, isn’t fair.

Emma is a nepo baby with two entryways into Hollywood but she’s been acting for over 2 decades now.

Okay, R7, then you can not include her when you write about the three listed stars. The rest of us will do whatever the fuck we want.

R21 I was about to say, Rosemary's Baby. It will be typical Ryan Murphy writing. The first three episodes will be good, then it will bring out more plot points and crappily tie them all up in the last episode.

by Anonymousreply 22September 7, 2023 3:03 PM

This show hasn't been good since Jessica Lang left rotation. You need heavy hitting actresses like her, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy and Sarah Paulson to bring this mediocre, low-grade writing to life. They either fill it or give it the necessary camp reading that makes it watchable. Seeing Kim K say, "You're A-List now," or "Do you want an Oscar more than a Baby?" with zero irony and dead flat serious is second hand embarrassment inducing. I think Ryan Murphy was trying to "Elizabeth Berkley" Kim Kardashian. But Ryan Murphy is no Paul Verhoeven and Elizabeth Berkley had enough acting chops to unknowingly deliver camp classic lines that didn't fall flat and that Paul could work with.

[quote] The last AHS was abominable. Abominable.

No it wasn't.

AHS New York City was one of the better seasons, in the last five to ten years.

The cast was great, it was actually scary at some points, and most importantly, it had a coherent resolution, which most of the recent seasons have lacked.

I like some of the newer and younger actors that Murphy has hired, such as Isaac Cole Powell. However, I do hate the nepo babies.

It would be nice if Ryan Murphy could hire another "classic actress" who hasn't worked in decades, and put her front and center.

When AHS Season 1 premiered, Jessica Lange and Frances Conroy hadn't worked in years. But he not only resurrected their careers, but showcased their amazing talent. Then he did the same with Kathy Bates.

Now that they've all experienced career resurgencies, he should find another actress with great talent, who could use a career boost.

I think it would help both the actress AND the show.

Snookie already did this as a cameo on Supernatural.

It was perfect, because it was JUST a cameo, and didn't use her as a character for an ENTIRE SEASON.

Casting BILLIONAIRE Kim Kardashian for a season of AHS just really rubs me the wrong way.

Especially when there are better and more deserving struggling actors out there who need and want the work.

Ryan Murphy used to be sympathetic to the plight of the "little people," but now it seems like all he cares about is stunt casting.

We got a glimpse of it from AHS Double Feature - Red Tide.

There was a scene where Evan Peters was doing a drag performance, and the other queens were picking on him. So he went back to their house and got revenge by killing them all.

The last one to live was a large queen who escaped, but then got mauled by a vampire. It was fun!

I've watched the first two episodes and I'm a little confused about Roberts' character. Everyone discusses her (including herself) as if she's a decade older than she is. She talks about her dusty, old eggs. She has several people refer to how old she is and how she's of a different generation than the actress she's up against at the Gotham Awards. Roberts just turned 32 this year (and could pass for five years younger). That's hardly has-been age. And Czuchry, who plays her husband, is 46. It seems like they planned the character to be older and never bothered to change the script once Roberts was cast.

Does anyone think they had a different actress cast who fell through at the last minute and Murphy asked Roberts to step in?

Also, Halley Feiffer is the worst writer working today.

by Anonymousreply 95October 3, 2023 5:35 PM

According to a summary online, Anna is supposed to be 36 in the book. So Roberts isn't too far off, although I don't know if her character is also supposed to be 36. But I agree Roberts looks young for her age. As for her "dusty eggs" I assume she feels that way since she's having trouble conceiving, which could be for lots of reasons that aren't age related.

by Anonymousreply 96October 3, 2023 5:55 PM

If it was just that comment, then I would give it a pass, but everyone is treating her as if she's Meryl Streep in Death Becomes Her. There's a line where she tells a younger actress that she's wearing Madonna's dress from the 1991 Oscars and the younger actress says, "I'll have to YouTube it, I wasn't born yet," and I'm thinking- And neither was Emma Roberts! (Actually she was JUST born the month before.) It's just not a good fit, casting wise.

It reminds me of the movie 13 Going on 30. When the main character was 13, it was supposed to be 1987. And they show her and her friends geeking out over Thriller and Rick Springfield, both of which were way over by then. It's clear the script was written several years before, and the filmmakers were too lazy or stubborn to fix it and figured everyone would be too stupid to realize. Shit like this just takes me out of the story completely. But I guess the average Ryan Murphy viewer doesn't give a shit.

I'm only watching to see how horrendous Kim is. (She's actually not terrible. Not good, but satisfactory enough.) I doubt I'll go past the first two episodes, though. The story is unengaging.

Everything about this season feels CHEAP. The show was renewed through season 13, but I wonder if the network is having buyer's remorse and decided to slash its budget? That's the only explanation I can think of for the low production values, small cast (which is also lacking in Murphy "regulars"), and use of existing IP for the story.

He isn't going with his usual stable of actors as much. You'll see someone he's used once or twice before, but not in a meaningful way. The first three episodes are full of actors I've never seen before and they were all very good. Of course, the usual issue with this show is still around- they tank the endings- but the first three episodes are very much worth watching.

Episode four was more in the vein of their usual stupid shit, with a very miscast Raul Castillo.

Kim K looks like a caricature of a woman. That ass is ridiculous and the exagerrated hour glass is somehow grotesque and I say this as a guy who finds curvy women attractive, not sexually just aesthetically. When I say curvy I don't mean fat either.

R120 - like I mentioned up thread - she looks like the back half of a horse costume - a mighty Clydesdale to be precise.

I have to say, though, regarding Kim K, she is NOT the problem with this season. In fact, she's the only thing that half works about it. I wouldn't want to see her do more than this, but she's doing her job.

I'm watching American Horror Stories right now, R119, and you're spot on about everything. I enjoyed the first three episodes but episode four was awful, particularly Raul Castillo. He was woefully miscast and his acting was embarrassingly bad.

Matt Czuchry is weak. It doesn't help that the writing for his character is bad. Any woman wouldn't put up with his bullshit and have left him long ago.

It’s really bad when Kim K is the best thing about your show. Roberts and Czurchy are terrible in everything (he was the only weak spot on The Good Wife), and I don’t give a shit about either character. It’s all just so stupid. Even reliable actors like Julie White and Dennis O’Hare are struggling in this. I’ve watched every episode of AHS, for better or worse, but this is the first season where I really don’t care if I finish it or not.

What's the deal with this? Is it some kind of break?

Oh ok. It immediately went off the rails of course but at least it was watchable.

It's only coming back for 4 episodes. Given the big delay they should just air it as a special two night event and be done with it. But, of course, they're dragging it out for 4 full weeks.

R129 the first half was 4 episodes and the second half is 4 episodes. That equals 8 episodes. AHS now does 8 episode seasons.

I can't believe they had the nerve to drag that drek out. My husband and I just kind of looked at each other one nice and decided neither of us wanted to watch anymore more of it. It was terrible. His shows always peter out. Everything was just so painfully obvious and not anywhere close to scary. Just terrible, and slow and I cared about no one or what happened to them. And they expect people to return like it's Game of Thrones or something.
