I just rewatched this for he first time and it was nowhere near as bad as I remembered. In fact I really enjoy a lot of it.

I’ve always said that Kathy Bates was the highlight of this season but, on rewatch, I’d say Paulson was the highlight. Cordelia’s character saw the most amount of growth and Paulson acted the hell out of it, though the scene where she blinds herself is just as gruesome as I recall. Lange is also great as ever.

There were some poorly executed storylines: Hank being a witch hunter, Nan and the neighbours (what a waste of the iconic Patti LuPone). And the Stevie Nicks appearances were awful. I didn’t mind Taissa Farmiga that much in this season, certainly better than S1 and less whiney.

Coven is one of my favs. I don't get the hate for it.

Definitely better than I recall. I’d rank it above Hotel, Cult and Freakshow.

100% agree. I don't rate hotel at all.

I’ve started this again.

The first time round, I attempted to watch it immediately after ‘Asylum’ so obviously it wouldn’t compare to the GOAT. I dismissed it as teen crap

However, I’m really enjoying it this time round. I’m on episode 7. The first 5 were fantastic and there are so many great characters. The Axeman episode was quite bland and I reckon the second half of the season may end up a mess.

But I definitely think it’s strong thus far and can finally understand why people love it.

I absolutely hate the Kyle (Evan Peters) storyline though - so boring
