American Horror Story : A Confusion?

h2znseegm8it2wth86yw

I was supposed to write this post right after the episode, but laziness took over me. LOL. Anyhow, after a long wait American Horror Story – Season 6 is back, but with no specific theme. The production released a couple of trailers claiming one of them to be real. In honour of Season 6, here are 6 confusions or questions that I had while watching the first episode, titled ‘chapter 1’.

1. Documentary? : My first question while watching the show was “is this going to be a documentary?”, cause that’s what it felt like. Different actors narrating the story, and different actors playing it, two different sets of actors seemed weird to me. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of documentaries, but AHS is trying to push it down my throat.

2. Credits & Music? : From the beginning to the end, we didn’t get to see the good old ‘American Horror Story’ even once! The only thing that flashed on the screen was ‘My Roanoke Nightmare’. Even the famous AHS music was gone. Where did they go?

3. Lady Gaga, where art thou? : Seriously, where was Lady Gaga? Or did I miss her out? I was definitely expecting to see her on the first episode, but she was nowhere. Gaga didn’t even have a cameo role in the premiere. So little has been revealed about the plot, it’s hard to say what role the previously Countess is going to play this season. I have my hopes high, though.

4. The missing case of Evan Peters : Evan Peters has been a consistent since season 1, what’s the cause of his disappearance this time? I have a feeling he is the head of the cult group or something. Probably has a major role to play, but I was really hoping to see the hottie in the first episode. You better be there in the next chapter, Peters!

5. Piggys? : First, a dead pig appears at Shelby and Matt’s doorstep which Matt buries to the ground, then some piggy sounds at night and finally the house video of a piggy with a human-like body (The video was definitely terrifying, btw). This kinda reminded me of the weird pig guy from season 1. What do pigs have to do this season?

6. Falling Teeth? : Okay, the very sight of falling teeth was gross. I mean…teeth rain?! Most people are confused where the teeth came from, but I’m confused…WHERE DID THEY DISAPPEAR TO? Hundreds and thousands of teeth must have fallen, where did they all go? Since it was only Shelby who witnessed it, was she hallucinating? Strange.

These were the main questions or confusions I had. Apart from these, I’m also confused as to how the Rednecks fit in the story and how all this is going to tie up with the Roanoke Disappearance. Hopefully, we’ll get to see glimpses of Lady Gaga and Evan Peters next episode. In the promo for chapter 2, viewers suggest that Lady Gaga can be spotted at a glance alongside Kathy Bates, but…I’m kinda not sure if it’s her. Let’s see.

4 TV series to watch

internet-tea-time-picjumbo-com.jpg

We all are guilty of binge watching TV series, and I’m no exception. It takes me just 3 or 4 days to finish 5 seasons of 21 episodes. Yes, I know you can relate, we are the same. I have watched quite a number of shows, but these are the 4 shows that have always kept me hooked and I consider the hiatuses to be nothing less than evil.

1. Sherlock BBC’s Sherlock is GOLD. Benedict Cumberbatch is phenomenal. ❤ This is perhaps that one show whose fanbase can beat any game of patience. Like, we literally wait for 2 years for a few episodes. Although, once in a while we get special episodes thrown at us for being such good kids. My favourite episode has to be The Scandal in Belgravia. (Irene Adler, bae.) Also, who doesn’t like childish quarrels between the Holmes siblings?

2. The Originals – Started way after The Vampire Diaries (Damon is my husband,fyi), this show has definitely shined. The theme is the same as TVD, vampires; wolves, etc., but the concept is very different. The story revolves around the Mikaelson family and how they deal with anyone who tries to harm them. It is so hard to choose to obsess over just one character, all of them are amazing! My favourites are obviously Klaus, Elijah and Kol (he freaking needs to be a regular character!). The season 3 finale was absolutely breathtaking. I was desperately waiting for the next season, but it ain’t returning before 2017, which breaks my heart into pieces. “Always and forever”

3. American Horror Story – I started watching this show last year, all because of Lady Gaga. I’m so glad I started watching it, cause it’s fab. It’s not the typical ‘horror’ genre, it’s more thrilling. I loved Lady Gaga as The Countess, Matt Bomer and Kathy Bates were splendid, but Evan Peters was the man of the show, for me. The next season starts this Wednesday (?) and all my fave actors are in it. CAN’T WAIT!

4. Dickensian – Another BBC series, with a huge budget. Somehow, this show didn’t make it to the top ratings, mostly because of the ever changing timings. Honestly, I loved this show to bits. Albeit it was confusing in the initial episodes, it did get interesting. The show is based on Charles Dickens’ iconic characters like The Havishams, Scrooge, Mr. Bumble, Fagin, Nancy and more. The timeline is set in the Victorian era and when all these characters come together, it forms something outstanding. I really wish this show got a renewal, but BBC axed it. This show had so much potential. </3

Most of the shows are returning together next year, which gets me really excited! But The Vampire Diaries is going to end soon. The last season begins this October, and I’m sure I’ll be in tears when the show ends. I’ll miss you Damon, I’ll so miss you. 😥
