Jennywocky, are you watching this season? Anyone else?
Oh hey, yes, another who doesn't get clown fear either.I loved the first season, was completely hooked on it. I enjoyed the Coven one, as well as Hotel. As someone who is interested in the psychology of humans in extreme cases, this show is right up my alley.
I've been following this season yes.
I'll never understand the clown fear.
I think it's good to get more variety in the various seasons, and Lange just dominates when she's around.I miss Jessica Lange.
What did you find absurd about "Holes"?Cult: It started off as a great psychological thriller but last week sucked. My hope is that Ryan (lazy ass) Murphy only threw us off with the absurdity of last weeks episode “Holes” and the rest of the season can be salvaged.
It was too predictable.What did you find absurd about "Holes"?
Yes, I’ve had enough of her as well. Her new name is Wendy.I also realize that I really don't like Ally, and I don't much like Ivy either... maybe this is why i hated the first few episodes which revolved entirely about them and Ally's issues with reality.
Wendy is too crazy to live a happy life with and Ivy is her own special kind of crazy. Can two crazies happily live happily together? In this case no.I can't stand whiny clingy people. I know Ally has some mental issues and I am sympathetic there, but she also seems to be one of those judgmental, partial, whiny, self-absorbed people apart from her mental illness, and those are the kinds of people I just stay far away from. Her response on finding Meadow in the grave was to run off and hide in her house, then not open the door to let her in -- which, sure, would have been the wrong choice, but she didn't know that. She was just withholding help. Fuck you, Ally.
I realized I didn't like Ivy when I discovered she is part of the cult. That in itself isn't the point, because I understand why -- but it means she has been part of the plot to drive her WIFE insane and the whole time has been pretending Ally is going batshit crazy to the point of leaving the marriage AND taking their son... because she knows the truth. Like, wtf? I don't really give a shit if she's got cold feet over nail-gunning a stranger to prove her loyalty; the reality is that she's been purposefully and gaslighting her WIFE and the other mother of her kid without remorse. To me, that's pretty awful. Fuck you too, Ivy.
Yes they whine way too much. If I were Wendy I’d get in my car and gtf outta there, but she’s too crazy, whiny and stupid. I think RM is trying to show us how ridiculous most Americans are.I also hate the way they bitch about not having money and their business is running them into the ground... yet they live in a house that is MUCH nicer than my house and HUGE... even the houses that I lived in with a spouse and three kids, and we did just fine. If you don't have money, then downgrade your home. Geez. Needless to say, have them as characters, but the show does so much better when the episodes do not revolve around them.
We definitely have inequities in our system that need to be remedied. At the same time, I just feel like we're all going batshit crazy unnecessary, especially when folks start swimming in their intricate ideologies. Growing up in religious extremism, it just looks like another form of that... the batshit crazy fundie stuff that seems like such a parody in King's works but the sad thing is that I know people like that, and even the more "normal" people sometimes hold crazy values that complicate their lives and the lives of the people around them.I think RM is trying to show us how ridiculous most Americans are.
I just watched it last night. I had mixed feelings in some respects.What did you think about Valerie Solanis Died For Your Sins? I though it was a refreshing change and a great backstory.
The Girls writer and actress is set to appear in one episode, and it's going to be memorable. She's playing radical feminist Valerie Solanas in episode seven, which is titled "Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag."
