The new American Horror Story season is two episodes in and it's not connecting with me. The political commentary is so on-the-nose that I find myself rolling my eyes just about every other scene. This is a show that is now in it's seventh season and I understand that as an anthology series, it has to kind of reinvent itself in ways to stay relevant. That's fine and last season, with it's show-within-a-show take, was an interesting, albeit shaky, direction. But even from a guy notorious for overdoing things in Ryan Murphy, this is too blatant to be entertaining. Also, Sarah Paulson's character is going to be a real challenge to sympathize with.
