Hey Somethings… PCR here.
I know a while ago I gave you my thoughts on AHS : Double Feature and.. at the time, it was rather rosy and hopeful…
Oh how the mighty have fallen.
I have no idea who pitched Season 10, or who OK’d it, but whoever pitched it needs a raise, and whoever OK’d it needs to be fired. If you can pitch something that turned out like Season 10 did, and can get people to buy into it.. you need to be doing/selling/pitching bigger things than a season of a TV series that.. at this point.. may have gone on too long.
Don’t get me wrong, Red Tide had a lot that I liked (as noted in my previous blog) but they way it was ended was waaaaayy too rushed. A majority of AHS seasons have been 10 or more episodes, and I think Red Tide could have been a much better story had they given it a full 10. I know that cancels the whole ‘Double Feature’ vibe they were going for…but when it was done as shitty as this was, things need to be rethought.
That being said, I was really digging the thought and concept of Death Valley…until I found out it was only 4 episodes.
In my opinion, AHS needs to take a long, hard look at itself in the mirror and figure out what worked and what didn’t over the 10 seasons it’s been on. My biggest fear is that “American Horror StorieS” have given them the idea that they can tell short, non-connected stories that are just as entertaining as their full seasons…and it’s my belief that that kind of thinking is what got us Double Feature.
I can’t even call Double Feature my least favorite season because, to be honest, it didn’t feel like an actual season.
Whatever you call it, and whatever you thought of it…this is one “Double Feature” I wish I had walked out of.
