    It got redonkulous, and I shut it off after "Anne Frank" showed up. That just was too far. I did read the summary on wiki, because curiosity, and so glad I stopped watching. Terrible.

      The aliens were a metaphor for God, and in general it was about science vs faith. Mental illness caused by sin rather than brain chemistry. Brent I think should read up on it and give it a second chance.

        Not the Asylum season. I might end up trying out the other seasons, but with less expectations.

          Started "Coven" AHS.

          This is my kinda effed up story. Sometimes a little TOO effed up (the mother of the dead kid thing), but comes with the territory, I guess.

          Hopefully the quality continues. I'm through 3 eps.

            Looking forward to season 2 of Fargo. Starts Monday on FX at 9. Going to be tough to top season 1 but with the cast they have for this season it is quite possible.

              After losing key characters to Actors/Actresses leaving the show The Good Wife has reinvented itself quite well. I dare say this might end up being my favorite season the way the writing has gone so far.

                I still have to get through last season somehow, but I still haven't got used to watching shows via laptop since I moved here for whatever reason. The only season I've made it through since moving here 1 year ago is Hannibal S3. So I'm still behind on:

                The Following S3
                The Blacklist S2
                The Goldbergs S2
                The Americans S3
                Top Chef S12
                Homeland S4
                Justified S6
                Tyrant S2
                Parks and Rec S7
                Brooklyn Nine-Nine S2
                Good Wife S6
                Hawaii 5-0 S6
                Parenthood S6
                Deadliest Catch S9

                Not sure I'll ever catch up.

                  I knew it wouldn't last.

                  Disney did the impossible: destroyed the Muppets. By making the Muppets “edgy” left-wing partisans who attack Fox News, come out as pro-abortion, and hurl sex jokes, the once-universally beloved franchise has been doomed. First, the leftwing Muppets failed at the box office, and now Kermit and Company are on the verge of having their new television show cancelled.

                        I do like the idea of giving the other characters plot arcs, but we've now had 3 different plot arcs involving him. It's "Dream On Starring Fozzy Bear."

                        BTW, who the heck is the huge bear? I don't recall him at all from the original Muppets. Was he added later in their run, or is he new?

                          The huge bear, whose name I also forget, isn't new. I think he was added during one of the early movies they made in the 80's.

                          ETA: He's Bobo the Bear.

                          ETA2: I was off on his start time, too. He first appeared in an episode of Muppets Tonight with guest star Cindy Crawford.

                            After three episodes, I'm shocked but Scream Queens is actually clever and funny. It shouldn't be; it should suck. But it is wickedly sharp at slicing the Achilles tendon of what I'd call "high school girl aspirational young adult woman" dramas. I'd be surprised if it makes it -- it's way too smart for the target demo; but it's possible that it might be so far over their head that they watch it ironically and keep it alive.

                            Also, Chanel #3 is really cute.

                              In regards to it being more adult, yes it's not a kid's show, but neither was the original Henson stuff way back when. And it's not exactly like they're going Avenue Q and banging each other. Newsflash people, just because something is animated or puppets doesn't mean you can drop your kids there and not bother reviewing it yourself.

                              As for the show itself, it's OK so far, some good jokes but it also hasn't been a home run. It seems like they're still finding their footing. I'll watch since there's nothing else on and mainly because it's on before Fresh Off The Boat. (Speaking of FotB, I haven't heard it discussed here, but that's a solid show. It's what Blackish would be if they had a good cast and writers who understood anything about subtlety.)

                                The dialog itself is pretty weak. The stuff that happens in the background and just barely in-frame is hilarious.
