    1. Yeah, same. There just hasn’t been much buzz this season, and my sometimes contributor and fellow “American Horror Story” fan Bobby, he has been watching and has nothing good to say. I frequently received text messages from him that would just read “IT IS SO BAD. DO NOT WATCH.” I intend to watch maybe in a binge, but I haven’t found the motivation just yet.
