Blimey, that's a shame :/
Mind you, the main branch of the show has been very sporadic for me anyway.
The first few seasons I thought were amazing - and s3 coven, s7 cult, and s8 apocalypse were entertaining enough - but the rest I gave up on.

I have a similar attitude toward the main seasons and probably have cut it way more slack in the past than it's deserved but this was just so low effort.

This programme managed the impossible; I was bored despite seeing Sierra McCormick in a latex body suit. I gave up with AHS after Freakshow, but in it's defence, the first three seasons had some brilliant set pieces and great showcases for the talents of Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

I've seen the entire series and despite the plots being variable quality, as a whole I rate it very highly. I enjoyed the return-to-series-one as it reminds us all where it began.
You're not going to be happy with the last episode.
A couple of episodes I'd even give 9/10 but as a whole it's an 8 from me.

Season 4 was terrible and it put me off for a couple of years, however I eventually tried again and S5 was very good, featuring an outstanding performance by Lady GaGa.
Cool, I might try to get back into it.

I got through the first season, but I didn't enjoy it. Felt way too teen-orientated...

If you like Evan Peters then give s7 Cult a go maybe - he's the central character.

"This season takes place in the fictional suburb of Brookfield Heights, Michigan, during the year 2017, and centers on a cult terrorizing the residents in the aftermath of Donald Trump winning the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Totally agree about season 4, but personally I found season 5 even worse. Maybe I need to give it another go, but at the time I found the first few episodes went way over my personal 'style over substance' limit ; gave up on it...

I thought it was pretty good and enjoyed the revenge ending.

could do with some nudity and titillation. Even side boobs would suffice.

Yeah, I agree four was as bit rubbish - I didn't get to the end. 1,2,3 and especially 5 'Hotel' I thought was brilliant. Not managed to see any since

I thought the final season of AHS was terrific — a real return to form that also somehow connected many of those other stories. But yes, variable on the whole. I didn't like Freak Show, Cult or Roanoke. I'll keep an eye on this, but no need to dip in unless I start to hear murmurings about something noteworthy emerging.

Episode 3 is pretty crap as well.
