Cecily and A.Ron give apologies for being late with our thoughts on this week’s episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse, “The Morning After”. But this crazy episode is the one where A.Ron at least, learns to stop worrying and love this bomb. I hope you got your tents, sleeping bags, and marshmallows at the ready, because this season looks like it’s going to be camp as hell. So that’s what we thought, use the links below to let us know what you’re thinking!
Cecily and A.Ron open up the mailbag and consider feedback for the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse, “The End”.
A.Ron and Cecily are back for another season of Ryan Murphy Madness, this time in Apocalyptic form! Tonight’s season opener of FX’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse felt strangely paced, as it seemed we were hurried along a lot of very interesting settings to get to a weird man with flat ironed hair. Which probably means this season is going to jump around like a horseshoe rabbit on methamphetamine. LA gets nuked, two teenagers we’re not sure why we should care about are ushered to a facility where the world’s elite plan to ride out the fall of civilization. They might be half brothers and sisters, they may be alien babies, one of them might be the Antichrist. Billy Eichner gets vaporized before the title sequence, which delighted and bummed us each out in equal and opposite measure. Ms. Paulson and Bates play purple playtime dress up. Horses get devoured? I guess? Probably radioactive scorpions… it’s just a lot to take in. We’ll be back tomorrow to talk more and discuss your feedback, so please send some in so we all don’t look silly.
Did Murphy pull it off with the final episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult? Did he in fact, make AHS “Great Again?” Ehhh… But A.Ron and Cecily feel that he made a few decent points about the state of modern America, at least one cautionary tale, but mostly this episode is an Inception style mess of flashbacks and flashforwards and who knows how deep into this dream we’re all in, but I’m pretty sure if we don’t get out soon we’ll all be stuck in limbo. We try to restore sanity to the time line before considering a heaping helping of last minute feedback from our fellow fans. Thanks for listening, it’s been a fun ride!
We’ve seen the latest from FX’s American Horror Story: Cult, “Charles (Manson) in Charge”, and it turns out that it’s all the women’s fault! We should have known it the whole time! A.Ron and Cecily try to figure out where Murphy is going as he crosses the double yellow and veers into oncoming traffic a final time before next week where maybe things will make sense!
A.Ron and Cecily have seen this egregious episode of American Horror Story: Cult, “Drink the Kool-Aid”, and have a lot to talk about. A.Ron says this is the scariest episode he’s seen in a long time because cults are scary, and the real life ones depicted here hit uncomfortably close to home. All this, plus feedback for this spooky Halloween episode of AHS!
Cecily and A.Ron take in the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult, “Winter of Our Discontent”, where Winter starts to question some of Kai’s leadership and strategy. Or does she? Who knows, perhaps all will be revealed / retconned in a flashback. We also discuss the hilarious/glorious sex ritual Kai comes with, Vincent’s relationship with his siblings, Ally slapping a “NO FEAR” sticker to the back of her Prius, and A.Ron prays to Twisty to deliver us from evil on this upcoming Halloween. Speaking of which, next episode comes on on Halloween!! See you then…
A.Ron and Cecily discuss the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult, “Valerie Solanis Died for Your Sins: Scumbag”. We discuss the proper use of colons, the history of Andy Warhol and the titular Valerie Solanis, the plot twist with the newly introduced Bebe, mourning for missed Russell Edgington opportunities, and Lena Dunham.
Cecily and A.Ron discuss the controversial “Mid-Western Assassin” episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult. We discuss gun violence, self-censoring same in reaction to increasingly common current events, and what, if any, lessons this episode is capable of teaching. Plus, A.Ron explains the difference between a twist, and a “twist”, and prays to Twisty for deliverance from evil clowns.
A.Ron and Cecily have seen the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story, “Holes”, and aren’t sure if they’re talking about trypophobia or the plot. Good gravy we’re confused about when and how Meadow died exactly, when Ivy and Alley’s relationship dove into the crapper, and how steam rooms work in the real world. Also; we explain gaslighting in a one act play. Also, also; feedback! See you next week!
