Critic Reviews for Be Our Guest

Exotic, fun, presses all the buttons, and no matter how much crap it gets dumped, it still emerges fresh and virginally pure.

The American Horror Story: Hotel finale turned out to have an eerie sense of timing... it makes the finale feel even more bittersweet than it is. That is, if you've grown to love these characters despite their horrific proclivities.

For arguably the darkest season of AHS to cap off with a happy ending is hardly expected, but it's welcomed, even as some of the most horrible characters are given warm sendoffs.

Even in its finale, American Horror Story: Hotel can't decide what it's about.

Solving a haunting with Twitter is by far one of the funniest and most believable things American Horror Story has ever come up with.

As seasons go, Hotel did its job better than last year's Freak Show, but nowhere near as good as Asylum.

Maybe next time American Horror Story will live up to those high hopes it keeps giving us.

Huh. So on the one hand, it was nice to say a proper goodbye to the gals, guys, and ghouls of the Cortez in this week's American Horror Story: Hotel season finale, but on the other hand, the episode was kind of low stakes?

On the whole, I'd have to say it was on a par with the first season, in terms of emotional impact. I might have enjoyed Coven more overall, but Hotel was pretty damn solid, I must say.

And so that was Hotel. Oddly ushered off into AHS oblivion by an overly-sentimental epilogue-y finale.

While many finales in the anthology have ended with notes of happiness... none have felt as oddly uplifting and so thoroughly interested in crafting a sense of optimism that is mostly unearned and yet appealing nonetheless.

Other than the boring John Lowe bits, I kind of loved this ending. Yeah it's SUPER saccharine, but I think after four years of AHS seasons with bizarrely happy endings, I think we have to accept it's just Murphy's thing.
