American Horror Stories Ep. 1&2 'Rubber (Wo)man' - 7/10

The first episode was fairly standard AHS fair and I really enjoyed it, particularly Matt Bomer and Sierra McCormick (who I was shocked to learn was Lillith on Supernatural!), though it was a bit glaring that they couldn't get any of the cast from Murder House to show up. It was fun to see Paris Jackson, too, but I hope that's her last time playing a teen because the 23-year-old cannot believably pass for one anymore; especially with that height, lol.

Things fell apart a little bit in the second part, where we're suddenly supposed to believe in a brand new couple (Kaia Gerber was another fun face to see) where one half was someone we didn't even meet in the first part. The second episode relied too heavily on the 'soulmate connection' between McCormick and Gerber's characters and less on the actual ghost and murder part of the story. All-around, however, it was a decent outing and I'm still excited for the rest of the episodes to come, before AHS S10 comes out.

I've yet to see it. I do like the idea that each episode is a stand alone telling a different story though intertwined by plot similarities.

American Horror Stories Ep. 3 Drive In - 5.5/10
Yeah, that ain't it. I really tried to enjoy it, and there were good parts strewn in here and there (mostly the performances by two AHS alumni) but for the better part of the very short 40 minutes, it was predictable and bad. I was particularly irritated by the character of Dee, it was riddled with the kind of cliches that Ryan usually tries to avoid or subvert, and what was hinted as an interesting story turned into the same old zombie flick we've been seeing so much of for the past decade or so.

Maybe I was wrong to go into it with such excitement and next week I will definitely be cautious and my expectations will be way down.

The Tick (2001) 8/10 . If the Apocalypse rolls around tomorrow , Fox executives will bear the brunt of the damnation on Judgement Day . This shortlived live action series ran for 9 episodes before cancellation by Fox . I have never known a network with such uncanny instincts to shoot themselves in the foot . Could have been a great show , but still worth watching .

Steve Mcqueen Uprising Ep. 2&3. 9/10
Frustrating. I wanted answers for the families of the kids who died in the New Cross fire. If folk want why there's so much animosity between black youth and the police then they need to watch this (Hillsborough came to mind). That said, I think Mcqueen kept it balanced.
Another entertaining season. Hope they keep making these. :)
I noticed this last week but was a bit put off because each episode was dedicated to a single movie...I'm kinda used to topic based docs like The Celluloid Closet or historical overviews like those of Scorsese and Cousins. I'll give it a try if you recommend it.
