The second episode of 'Freak Show' placed us in some worrisome and familiar territory, pitting freak against freak as Dell was introduced to the mix, but tonight's third episode goes a little ways to course-correcting the season (for now, at least). In the first of the two-part Halloween episode, we meet the titular "Edward Mordrake," the boogeyman among the freaks, for even those we're most afraid of have someone that terrifies them. (Well, there's Twisty, but still.)

‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7 roars out its 7th episode of the final year, “Greensleeves,” as Juice's ultimate fate is revealed, Jax's attempt to destroy August Marks catches Bobby's eye, and Gemma fears that her son has learned the truth about Tara's death.
We certainly enjoyed FX's slow-burning border drama remake 'The Bridge' through its first two seasons, even with some admitted stumbling through the inaugural year, but the network appears to have lost patience. Following its second season finale, FX has opted not to renew 'The Bridge' for season 3, but is there any hope beyond cancellation?
FX period drama 'The Americans' has kept reasonably quiet heading into season 3 next year (state secrets, and all), but following a presence at New York Comic-Con 2014 this past weekend, the Soviet spy series has unclassified a rather large addition. Oscar nominee and Tony-winner Frank Langella will join 'The Americans' season 3 cast, but as whom?
Condensed down to its regular hour-long runtime, this week's second episode of 'Freak Show' still manages to offer wacky wonders and oddball delights, but the introduction of Michael Chiklis as strongman Dell Toledo presents a new conflict for our cast of characters -- and with that conflict comes a familiar problem for 'American Horror Story,' giving this particular bit of plotting a rushed feeling. And while the overbearing Dell may strong-arm his way into having everyone thinking he's top dog, his three-breasted wife Desiree seems way more interesting.
‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7 roars out its 6th episode of the final year, “Smoke 'em If You Got 'em,” as Jax attempts to take advantage of shifting alliances between the Mayans and Aryans, while Gemma makes her way back to Charming, and Juice attempts to broker a deal.
'American Horror Story' isn't quite the juggernaut for FX that 'The Walking Dead' marks for AMC, though this should come as no surprise. Following the fourth season 'Freak Show''s record-breaking debut last week, FX has officially granted a fifth season to Ryan Murphy's horror-thriller, bringing us another all-new 'American Horror Story' in October 2015.
'American Horror Story' returns for a fourth season, taking us under the tent with perhaps its least subtle outing yet, introducing us to the oddities of the 'Freak Show,' led by Jessica Lange's glamorous Elsa Mars. Subtlety has never been creator Ryan Murphy's strong suit, but Murphy (who also wrote and directed tonight's premiere) seems to have fully embraced that approach, delivering what appears to be both the most horrifying and joyful season yet.
‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7 roars out its 5th episode of the final year, “Some Strange Eruption,” as Jax's best-laid plans with the Chinese are forced to a head by the latest attack, while Juice continually unravels in isolation, and Nero's loyalties become torn.
By now we're admittedly used to the prospect of blockbuster cable TV series spawning "companion" spinoffs, but FX's newest 'American Horror Story' riff is by far the most perplexing yet. The network has officially placed an order for Ryan Murphy's 'American Crime Story' series, its first season subtitled 'The People v. O.J. Simpson,' and we assure you, this is not a joke.
