This will probably come up on a near-future episode of Special Ops, but I have to take a moment to share my (SPOILER-FREE) feelings on the finale of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK show. Let me sum it up in a quick sentence, so you’re not left wondering how I feel:
What a complete load of crap.
I can’t even think of a season (and, since the show is an anthology, SERIES) finale that has disappointed me to a greater extent. That says something about the state of modern television, I suppose, and it’s a positive net result, but…wow, that was one of the stupidest endings I have ever seen, in all my decades as a fan of the boob tube.
Incidentally, this was my first exposure to AMERICAN HORROR STORY, and despite my disappointment with the ending, I am anxious to see more. The series is clearly well-executed, and populated by immensely talented actors and creators. My girlfriend, who’s been a fan since day one, insists that the other seasons will exceed any expectations I may have. It sounds like I have some catching up to do.
If you have a bone to pick with the ending of a TV series, feel free to share your thoughts by adding a comment below. If we get enough responses, perhaps we’ll make this a proper topic of discussion on an upcoming podcast…
