American Horror Story: Cult. Honestly, I thought this would be upper-level stupid. I thought it would be beyond trite and preachy. I didn't care for a lot of the new cast. I was wrong. Most of it is interesting in its makeup. The character twists have been solid. It's been genuinely creepy and made-well for October. Really, with its shortcomings noted, it's rather genius. Absolutely better than the past couple seasons, and I liked the past couple of seasons. I've been surprised. I might go as far as to recommend it.
