Yes, we saw the pilot come out several months ago, and I, too, watched it at that time.
I was waiting for the series to start in earnest, but that sadly never came to be. Because of, you know, horrible reality.
However, thanks to the magic of the Internet and spotty international distribution deals, here we are. I’ll be doing the whole season.
Let the glorious disaster begin.
I had my misgivings about this. I really did. Those first trailers looked like over-stylised, Dutch angle-fucked, substance-less trash.
But still, for some reason I can’t even pin down, I expected Scream Queens to be decent.
Didn’t I learn anything from Glee and seasons 3 and 4 of American Horror Story?
I reckon “Oh, honey. No” will be a recurring theme when it comes to MTV’s Scream television adaptation.
As I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, Scream is one of my Sacred Three: my favourite three movies of all time (Jurassic Park and Jawbreaker being the other two). I didn’t have high hopes for this version, and those hopes were not bolstered by the appalling (and, mercifully, cancelled) Eye Candy.
Well, Scream’s better than Eye Candy.
But not by much.
