    Does one season not have anything to do with the other seasons? Is each season it's own story or do you need to watch the previous seasons to know what's going on?

    Each is its own story. The only carry over between seasons is some of the actors but they play completely different characters.

    I watched season 2 first because I'd never heard of it. Then I watched season one. Totally independent stories and characters but several of the actors are shared.

    I was thankful that the Bs play tomorrow when I remembered this was starting tonight. :D

    Are the Hawks playing on Wednesday Night Rivalry tonight? I thought I saw that somewhere, but I can't find a schedule for it. If so, that would make my night a little more complicated.

    It's my favorite thing about the show. I think I've said that about a half dozen times, now. :D

    Yeah, but who listens to you anyway? ;)

    Kidding. :p The recent promo spots I've seen recently looked pretty interesting, so I decided to poke my head into the thread and you did say exactly that in the second post but it's such a foreign concept, I wasn't sure I understood it correctly.

    I think I may check this one out.

    I wasn't saying you should be paying attention to me...my own family doesn't care what I say - why should you?? :D ...I was just making fun of myself for being repetitive, and assuming a defensive position because I was sure somebody would eventually call me out on it...but I really like the show.

    If you give it a shot, be prepared for something super dark and disturbing..."this is really on TV???" disturbing.

    I know. I was just giving you a hard time. ;) Glad you mentioned the disturbing part as I was going to see if the 13 year old wanted to watch. I'm thinking not. Thanks for the heads up.

    I didn't like the second season as much as the first, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. The acting was top notch. I thought both James Cromwell and Lily Rabe were fantastic. I also was quite impressed by Evan Peters' versatility. I'm not sure how I feel about a witch based story line, but I'm sure the acting will once again shine.

    I don't know if it's called that, but they play the Blows tonight (on NBCSN)...and, yes, it's a re-emerging rivalry. I attended the Hawks/Blows games in St. Louis when I was in college in the 70s, and there were always multiple fights....in the stands.

    Looking forward to this. A lot of acting talent! I'm really not into witch-stuff or anything, but I couldn't pass up watching these great actors, plus this particular franchise takes everything to a level of crazy that I rather enjoy. :D

    I still need to watch S01 (started and something screwed up my SP so I never got back, but have the DVDs). Enjoyed S02, for the most part, although I feel like I need to watch it again. So much going on and I think I watched too many of the episodes too close to my bedtime (the time when I'm falling asleep on the couch a lot).

    I just watched the first three eps of S01 on Netflix. I cannot believe I had not watched this before now! Glad I stumbled into this thread and I up have SP set up for S03 that begins tonight.

    Definitely a foreign concept as applied to TV series, but it is a model that has deep roots: it's basically repertory theater, where Players in a troupe would do multiple plays. Different stories, same actors, playing different parts from play to play. The brilliant thing about it, as done here is: (1) it lets each season tell a complete story; and (2) high-calibre actors (like Lange) that might not otherwise sign on to a role in a typical continuing television series because of its open-endedness are more likely to come on board because it's "just a season." Thing is, it's such good tv that once they come in board they've tended to stay.

    For some reason I was relying on my old "American Horror" season pass to pick this up- glad I double checked as it did not.

    That was close!!!

    Check your DVR!

    Yeah, because the show name changes every season you have to reset the SP. Annoying.

    But worth it, I hope! Due to lack of tuners I have to get one of the repeats so I won't be watching for a day or two (IIRC).
