If you are not a weird person who might slightly be interested in the Supernatural or Paranormal activities .... you definitely will not get American Horror Story! Going in .. I was that girl who had my doubts thinking the writer of this series must be completely messed up! That is until I started watching and here I am at season 6!
I was disappointed at the season premiere and apparently so was the Internet. This season's title is American Horror Story: Roanoke and debuted to lower ratings than last Seasons' "Hotel ". If you are not familiar with History , in the 1600's around the time when a group of Pilgrims from England came to America to settle in Virginia to be exact, a complete set of people just disappeared! This group has been known as "The Lost Colony" and there has been numerous stories about what happened to these people from them being abducted by Aliens to them being a Cult and participating in "Self Sacrifice" ....sounds eery right?
In the late 1500s, the English made their first attempts to settle in North America on Roanoke Island, which is off the coast of North Carolina. These first settlers ended up returning to England because of a shortage of food and Indian attacks.
In 1587, a second colony was founded on Roanoke. It was then that Virginia Dare, the first baby born to English parents in North America, was born. John White, the leader of the colony, went to England to get more supplies. When he returned in 1590, the settlement was deserted. All the settlers had mysteriously disappeared. The only clue he found was the word "Croatoan" carved in a tree. To this day no one knows what happened to them. It's possible that the Colonists joined with the friendly Croatoan natives. Or were they massacred by the unfriendly Wanchese tribe? No one knows for sure.
Since 1937, this mystery has been relived every year in a play called The Lost Colony. It is performed outdoors at Wayside Theatre at lth Fort Raleigh in North Carolina.
This season's cast sees members from previous seasons returning like Sarah Paulson , Angela Bassett , Evan Peters , Jessica Lange and new comer Cuba Gooding Jr.
We will be watching to see if it gets better up until the 3rd episode and if it does not .. then we will retire the series all together ( with the rest of the Internet )
