Yes, AHS has a different story with different characters each season, although many of the characters are played by the same actors season after season. The first season was about the dysfunctional Harmon family(Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga) moving into a house in Hollywood, Los Angeles, which is haunted by the ghosts of everyone who had died or been murdered there; season two took place in an insane asylum in New England in the 1960's which featured a man wrongfully jailed for killings he did not commit who experiences alien abductions, a demonically possessed nun, a skin mask-wearing serial killer, a serial killer in a Santa Claus outfit, an ex-Nazi doctor conducting experiments to create cannibalistic mutants, and a musical number set to "The Name Game"; and season three is set in an academy for gifted young women in New Orleans that is a front for a witch coven, which is under siege by a voodoo cult and a group of witch hunters. Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, and Frances Conroy have so far been in all three seasons, playing different characters in each one. Taissa Farmiga was in season one but skipped season two, and is back in season three as Zoe, one of the witches at the academy.

The Walking Dead and Bates Motel are both awesome shows! The Walking Dead is already halfway through its fourth season, so you'll have to hurry if you want to catch up, but Bates Motel will be just starting its second season in the spring.

I have way too many shows I watch, but losing Nikita & HIMYM this year is definitely a killer The Walking Dead is great though!

Is HIMYM good the whole way through do you feel? I watched the first season on itunes recently and would love to pick up the complete series, but a lot of people have said that it really goes downhill later on?

It has always been one of my favorites so I feel like I am a bad person to ask. This final season has mostly been filler episodes, so I don't feel like it has been as good. But everywhere I read everyones says it has really gotten worse. I don't know though.

HIMYM was great in its first five seasons, but went downhill after they began with the whole Barney/Robin wedding thing, which started with flash-forwards in season six. Even though I still love the show, I cannot accept that Ted and Robin will not end up together and that she'll end up with Barney(in a totally dysfunctional relationship) and Ted will end up with the mother, who is turning out to be a total Mary Sue character with whom he has almost no screen time with. This is an article I pulled off of a blog which sums up my feelings about HIMYM and Ted and Robin better than I ever could. Forgive me if it's a little long:

But since Robin wasn't the mother it was obvious she wouldn't have ended with Ted, right? I'm just asking, I don't watch the show

My Smash co-mod is a huge Barney/Robyn shipper

I'm really surprised actually that Ted is still in love with Robin in the 6th and 7th season, cause yeah the first episode makes it clear that the kids know her as 'Aunt Robin' and she's not the Mom, so I figured that there wouldn't be much of a love story there beyond the first season

Yeah, I liked T/R as a couple but always knew they wouldn't end up together. Plus Ted/The Mother are perfect and they haven't even met yet.

Yeah, that's what I was saying. It feels weird to me hoping for an endgame when you already know how it ends - in this case with Robyn being the aunt and not the mother

Although I can't talk cause I hoped for a different endgame couple with Smallville, in spite of 70 years of canon

But yeah I do find Ted and Robin cute together from the first season, but I haven't been super-invested in them because I figured that in the second season they would realise they didn't work as a couple or something. It seems pretty depressing to spend 7/8 years on Ted pinning if the relationship has already been confirmed as not going to work out in the end

So you wasn't a Clark/Lois fan?

It's very bad when you can't help but ship a couple/situation like that, when basically the writers say so. It's different from other kind of shows, even if it's not guaranteed to get your endgame anyway :lo:


Merry Christmas to you too

They didn't introduce Lois until the fourth season,and didn't make them romantic until the eight season, and I was already pretty invested in another couple by then My ships don't get endgame very often anyway

Merry Christmas!

A build-up indeed

I'm usually lucky with endgames, except for GG and Thalex but I don't watch many shows, so I can't say, really
