Last week’s episode Of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” had us all reeling with plot twists full of revenge and lunacy. It was almost like watching Congress at work. What the freaks finally did to Stanley was a brilliant tribute to Tod Browning and his film, but I never expected Maggie to die. Elsa’s on the way to Hollywood, Chester’s in jail and Dandy’s the new owner. It’s the last performance of the season and the show must go on. Your ticket for tonight comes with a warning, “He who enters is doomed.” Read the rest of this entry

Check out her reply after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Holy Split Personalities! Dandy thinks he’s the reincarnation of Twisty and Chester thinks his dummy is alive, but I think last week’s episode of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” should have been called, “Another One Bites the Dust.” Elsa was packing for Hollywood, but she was also ‘packing’ as in gun; as in goodbye Dell.

Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years.
