American Horror Story’s new season may be so intolerably dull and tedious that I’ve already abandoned it, but at least they tried something new; something to escape the dumpster fire of the previous season.
Scream Queens, conversely, has decided to keep making the same mistakes it was already making.
Scream Queens: ambitionless.
At least they’re not making any new mistakes, though.
The only thing scary about the Scream Queens finale is that we have to sit through two fucking hours of it.
It’s tough enough trudging through one episode a week.
This is just mean.
Well, the good news is that this episode isn’t as scum bucket-y as last week‘s.
The bad news is that Scream Queens is trying to pull an eleventh hour moral turnaround on Chanel, a girl who just last episode happily thought she’d murdered a love rival. So she could secure a seat at a dinner.
And I say “thought” because it turns out Lea isn’t dead, after all.
So last episode was a total wash.
If this was on ABC, I’d say that it’s no surprise that the Scream Queens episode to feature Carrie Fisher’s daughter comes hot on the heels the Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens trailer premiere.
What are you doing, Fox? Don’t give the enemy free press.
