Freak Show Friday

We are less than one month away from the new season of “American Horror Story”. Staying true to the anthology’s reputation, this season is sure to be great. Based in early 1950’s Jupiter, Florida the fourth season is subtitlted “Freak Show”. From what has been revealed so far about the show which is set to premiere October 8th on FX is that it is darken than last season’s “Coven” and centers around America’s last standing freak show.  Emmy award winner, Jessica Lange will once again [and quite possibly for the last time] lead the returning cast as Elsa Mars, a former German cabaret star who runs the show. Lange has been very open about this season being her last season as she has said the show is very time consuming during the year. lange[As with previous seasons Lange looks fabulous and I’m sure will give us a stellar performance] Returning for a second season is Kathy Bates as Ethel, the bearded lady and Angela Bassett as Desiree Dupree, the lady with three breasts. Also returning of course is Sarah Paulson as Bette AND Dot. [twins or conjoined twins?] Making an appearance in four episodes this season is legend Pattie Labelle, as mother to actress Gabourey Sidibe’s character. While I am extremely excited about what this season will bring I think I am more excited about the opening sequence and the theme song. Melanie Martinez’s [The Voice] “Carousel” from her LP opens up this seasons show and I must say it is an addictive little diddy. Have a listen!
