The A Star Is Born Effect
American Horror Story: Apocalypse takes us to the eighth season of the anthology series, which is chock full of new characters that first appeared in season six’s Murder House. And, I hear, plenty of messed up things. As such, the official description for the new season is a bit hard to read, but I’m told the subtitle will be Apocalypse – that means it’s got some doozies.
Aside from true horror, we’re getting another perfect pairing of genre, as last year’s mini-event crossover was an animated delight that built on last season’s horror foundation.
Till Death Do Us Part – The Handmaid’s Tale
One of the greatest things about The Handmaid’s Tale was seeing how unnerving it can be, full of acting chops and relationship ticks, like Atwood’s subtle writing, and Mary-Louise Parker’s unique sadistic voice work as Offred’s (Elisabeth Moss) Aunt Lydia. Her decision to kill Offred’s daughter, was a sacrifice gone horribly wrong. We’re hoping season three takes full advantage of this dynamic, one that’s sure to take a unique twist. We’re coming!
Darling on the Rocks
Emmy-winner Sterling K. Brown, who’s rich with a series of intense performances, is giving us some sweet love in this musical drama, about a couple in the magical realist writers’ group that inspired Truman Capote.
