'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.

Three seasons in, we've gotten accustomed to the fact that FX's 'American Horror Story' reboots year after year with its cast in different roles of a new story.

Much as we love a good near-death clown scare, 'American Horror Story' season 4 promotional campaign has mercifully turned to the cast of its titular 'Freak Show.'
