American Horror Story: Coven


American Horror Story: Coven is now on Netflix. Some might say I'm a little late in the game on this one but I don't have cable so I usually miss the boat. This should explain why most of these posts are Netflix recommendations.

I have watched season one and two previously. I was not a huge fan. The shows seemed disorganized and I ended up using the shows as background music while I did housework or cooked.

As far as horror goes, the show was not particularly scary. It had its scenes of gore and torture but that doesn't seem unusual from a television show these days; looking back on Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, CSI and more. There are ghosts and creatures but nothing to really give you nightmares... if thats what you are searching for.

The show was a very intriguing bitchcraft soap opera and worthy of binge watching. (I found myself compromising precious sleep to watch just another episode every night)

And, even more reason I need to see New Orleans for myself soon.
