Excellent AHS Season
22 January 2016 | by dvdhaven-1See all my reviews

This AHS season was for me by far the most entertaining one. On reviews of individual episodes of Season 5 (and previous seasons), I saw too often remarks about what AHS "should" be, which is rather presumptuous for a viewer to make statements about. It is debatable whether AHS is a "horror" story, but that depends on your definition of horror (of which there isn't a single one). Rather, when you watch this series for its entertainment value, this season has reached a much more interesting level of complexity than previous, more linear seasons that were at times suffering from dull moments. Characters are far more extreme, story lines develop in many directions before resolving themselves all the way at the end. The only other season that had me in its grip in this way was "Asylum," especially the earlier episodes. Overall, this season sets the benchmark for future seasons of AHS in a significant way.
