American Horror Story: Roanoke continues to be impressive in its storytelling but the number of different stories in each episode is exhausting. The past two episodes have been on information overload which seems to have dramatically decreased the strong scare factor we enjoyed in the first two episodes, which is unfortunate because the show is no longer scary. The story is starting to feel like a Haunting in Connecticut and The Amityville Horror knock off. I am optimistic that the episodes to come will compensate for the lack of horror and relax on the historical lecture. AHS: Roanoke can continue to ride on the glory of the first episodes but if the next few episodes don’t step it up, AHS: Roanoke will have lost its streak of awesomeness.
