"American Horror Story" can often border on...

"There's a big storm heading our way," proclaims Sister Mary to the patients of Briarcliff, and she doesn't mean just thunder and lightning. Shit is going down. We're about a quarter of the way through the season, and it's becoming more evident that although the execution is better than Season...

I was so ready for this episode after reading great things from people who had already seen it. I got a large bowl of ice cream, plopped down next to my cat, and pressed play. And, boy, was I not disappointed. "Tricks and Treats" hit all the right notes, save...
