It’s amazing that when it seems like American Horror Story doesn’t have any more room to grow and change… it does. The eight season, Apocalypse, decides to tackle the world after a nuclear holocaust and crossover from past seasons into this one. If there ever was a time to go nuts with something, especially with the 80s themed slasher for the ninth season hitting the airwaves, the eighth series was the proper one to do it.
Simple premise. The world has ended and humanity is now trying to survive. And then it gets crazier and crazier, involving flashbacks to before, mutant powers and the like. The conclusion is even nuttier.
Unlike prior seasons, this is the first that really requires you to have been a regular viewer because it’s bringing in events from prior seasons (that require an understanding of that season) to really get it. If you’ve been a regular viewer and somehow missed the eighth season then this is definitely up your alley.
If you’re new and you’re looking to jump in, go to a prior season. This isn’t going to be something you’re able to fully get.
Nothing of note.
