Though the various subplots are growing too abundant, the progressive unraveling of each characters' sanity in "Bullseye" still thrills.
I'm getting a little tired of watching these characters get fantasy murdered. Come on, American Horror Story, stop sticking our hand into a bowl of grapes and calling it eyeballs. I miss Twisty. Is that weird?
This episode of American Horror Story basically becomes a showcase for Mat Fraser and Jessica Lange.
This is the episode that's been waiting to fight its way out of Freak Show all along, catalyzing the season's potential energy into the genuine spectacle of histrionic freakouts and hypnogogic fantasy.
This is like Alice in Wonderland up in here -- everyone just comes and goes so quickly.
The episode vaguely recalls the chilling Tyrone Power film Nightmare Alley in how it shows the carny atmosphere to be unhinging its protagonist, though Elsa was certainly already unhinged; we're just now beginning to get to know her.
Six episodes into Freak Show, and it's clear that American Horror Story's latest season is the first to balance a lot of narratives, while keeping them all on equally compelling footing.
With a cast, a setting, and art direction like this, it's such a letdown to be getting mostly tired melodrama with occasional spurts of blood.
It wasn't bad, exactly, just kind of meh. At least the singing was kept to a minimum, so there's that.
It probably shouldn't surprise you at all that things get even weirder this week.
Now that the season is more or less half over, concerns over whether or not such a story will present itself become as pronounced as the ideas it revisits nearly every episode.
"Bullseye" wasn't bad at all, but it was sort of a flatliner when it came to providing thrills.
If this episode threw a dagger at us we would not come away unharmed. I would kick this episode out of bed for eating crackers. Don't quit your day job, episode. This episode was medium-alright.
