The 6 Best Seasons Of "AHS" Ranked Worst To Best

The 6 Best Seasons Of "AHS" Ranked Worst To Best

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Now that Season 7 of "American Horror Story" is out, I feel like all people are talking about is "AHS." Along with that I've seen several rankings of each of the seasons, some ranging from pretty accurate to some that have me thinking "did we even watch the same show?" So I decided to create a definitive list of worst to best "American Horror Story" seasons:

6. "Murder House"

It baffles me why anyone thinks this season is good. When this season started I absolutely loved it, it actually scared me. All the unknowns made everything so creepy and weird. Then the the middle of the season hit. Nothing was scary anymore. The ghosts were so humanized it took the creepy factor out of it, it honestly seemed like they weren't even ghosts anymore and it was just the people before they died. I'll admit there are some great parts to this season, like the drug-addicted doctor with Frankenstein complex and Thaddeus who was literally stitched back together after being dismembered. But when I watch "American Horror Story," I want creepy and scary all the way through, not just for half the season.

5. "Roanoke"

I had mixed feelings about this season. The middle of the season was amazing; it was gory and it was weird, everything "American Horror Story" should be. But "Roanoke" placed at the bottom of the list for the same reason as "Murder House:" it wasn't consistently scary. The beginning and end of the season ruined it for me. I get what they were trying to do with the whole TV show idea and don't get me wrong, it was a good idea, however those boring TV show parts really took away from the creepiness I expect from "American Horror Story." And to top it all off, Even Peters was barely in it.

4. "Asylum"

I wanted to like this season so badly, and for the most part I did. To me, nothing is creepier than an asylum, and the Nazi doctor gave me chills every time he came on screen. However, one thing and one thing only ruined this season: THE FRICKEN ALIENS. It ruined the entire season. Trying to integrate aliens in an asylum setting doesn't work. If the aliens weren't in it, this would probably be at the top of the list, it's only about "Roanoke" and "Murder House" because it was actually creepy pretty much all the way through (minus the aliens).

3. "Coven"

I really enjoyed this season. I was a little disappointed that it really wasn't that scary, but the storyline had me hooked. While it wasn't that scary, it definitely had some creepy and downright disgusting moments. This season was the only one to ever make me sick to my stomach, I almost didn't make it past the opening scene. Also the acting was phenomenal in this season and the characters were really developed. Although not the scariest, it had it's moments paired with an incredible story line.

2. "Hotel"

This season really surprised me. When I first started it, I hated it; after three episodes I didn't want to keep going. I thought the “vampire” angle was stupid and had been overdone. I thought it was going to be the worst season, especially with Jessica Lange leaving and Lady Gaga coming onto the show. But boy was I wrong. Lady Gaga killed her role, and like "Coven," all the characters were really developed and the actors did a great job in all of their roles. Everything about this season was messed up and weird. This season made my skin crawl on more than one occasion, especially the sewing incident with Sally (if you've seen in you know exactly what I mean).

1. "Freak Show"

By far the best season of "American Horror Story" to ever be produced. This season had it all: the greatest characters (with actors who did an amazing job portraying them), it was weird/creepy/scary all the way through, and it had the scariest thing of all: CLOWNS. Twisty is my favorite character in any season of "American Horror Story;" he was truly terrifying. The first time he was introduced I felt my heart racing, the costume design on him deserves an award. This season was messed up in every way you could think of. It felt wrong to watch, and that's the exact feeling that this show should produce in people. My brother and I had to stop watching "American Horror Story" together during this season because of how weird it was. Everything about this season was fantastic; I could rewatch it a thousand times.

TBD - "Cult"

I honestly don't know how this season will rank in the standings. Honestly, I'm not a fan of it so far. I was really excited for this season (MORE CLOWNS) but I was rather disappointed with the first episode. Sure it was strange, but not scary. The clowns weren't even scary, aside from Twisty. I feel like the story could be done without the integration of the election, I feel as if it takes away from the scary feel which is the whole point of the show. It may play a more pertinent role as the season goes on, so we'll have to wait and see. It felt very much like "The Purge," and not "American Horror Story." I had high hopes and felt kind of let down. But, I also thought "Hotel" was going to be horrible and it turned out to be one of the best, so we're just going to have to wait and see how the season progresses.

To the guy that shot my brother...


To the guy that shot my brother,

On January 9, 2019 my families entire life changed with one phone call. The phone call that my little brother had been shot in the face, no other details. We didn't need any other details. The woman on the phone who called us in full panic told us where he was so we went, as soon as possible. I don't think it helped that not even 10 min prior I talked to Zach on the phone.. kind of irritated with him, and the ONE TIME I didn't say 'I love you' as we hung up. Could've been the last time we ever spoke.. I remember pulling up to the hospital thinking 'this can't be real' 'it's not our Zach' 'this is just a dream Sarah, WAKE UP' I'd close my eyes really tight just to open them, I was still in the hospital emergency parking lot. I could still hear the ambulance sirens coming. It was all real.

The day our life's changed was definitely a test of faith. A test of how strong we were, as a family. I sat in that waiting room ready to see the damage that has been done to my sweet baby brother. Because at that point we had no idea how lucky he got. That glimpse of seeing Zach will haunt me forever. How helpless I felt in that exact moment frequently wakes me up from these horrific dreams I've been having ever since that day. That is a moment burned into my me and families brain forever.

You always hear about these things in the movies or on the news, a house being shot up, someone shooting another innocent person, not to care if they died on your watch. But we found ourselves on the news.. We have been confined to the hospital since that day. Running on barely any sleep, taking shifts of sleep so we don't make ourselves sick taking care of Zach. Watching him suffer. Undergoing surgeries, to repair the damage you did.

Before I proceed let me tell you a little something about the man you shot.

Zachary Keith Wright. A blonde hair blue eyed boy. Who could potentially be the most annoying human on the planet (possibly coming from his sister). A man who loves his God first, loves his family second. Perfect by no means, but almost perfect to me. A 19 year old who was to graduate high school this month. After graduation he was prepping to leave for Marine boot camp in the summer.. being in the military has been Zach's dream since he could talk. Literally. Running around, playing war with underwear on our heads, and finger guns. Some would say we looked like natural born assassins.. growing up he has been a country boy. Let me tell ya country to the core. He loves this country like he loves his family. He believes in helping people, taking charge in what's right, and never leaving a brother behind. He's lived by that his whole life. Until now....

The day you shot him. The day not only did you change my brothers life, you changed his families life too. The day you almost ripped my brother out of this world... for what? A misunderstanding? Because you've let something take ahold of your life that you can't let go you're willing to kill someone innocent over? Luckily for him, his guardian angels were protecting him in your time of cowardice. There were 3 times that day he should've died, the time you shot him, the time you tried to shoot him again as he stared you directly in the face, (even tho he couldn't talk I know you could read his eyes, and he still intimidated you. That's why you tried to pull the trigger again) and the time he was running out of the house. But he lived. A man who was shot in the face, didn't lay there helpless, didn't scream in agony. That MAN walked to the neighbors to get help. Why? Because he's a MAN, and because he's on this earth for a reason.

It's gonna sound a little strange not only to you, but the audience who is reading this. I must say thank you. Even in this situation, this was the best outcome we could get. He gets to live. He will make a full recovery. He will graduate. And he will go off into the Marines. You united my family together. Closer than ever. Thank you. You tested our faith and brought us closer to our God. Thank you. Because of your moment of weakness, you showed us what prayer could do. Heal anything. Thank you. This was a bump in the road, and a helluva way to kick off our year of 2019. But here we are.. all laying in the hospital. I'm looking around as mom is sleeping in her recliner chair exhasted but still here, Zach his awake playing his xbox all hooked up to machines, fighting to heal and get better. And of course I'm writing this letter to you.

See you in trial,

From the girl whose brother you shot.

Why Ariana Grande's '7 Rings' Symbolizes Women Empowerment

I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it.


After "God Is A Woman" and "Thank U, Next," I was sure I had just found my ultimate favorite song. If you know me, you know that I am simply obsessed with Ariana Grande and her music. Her concerts and recorded soundtracks sound the exact same!

Her "God Is A Woman" hit started off 2019 on a powerful note, debuting as her fourth number 1 hit single on Billboard's Pop Songs charts. On January 19th, "7 Rings" premiered with nearly 15 million views within the first 24 hours.

This female empowerment anthem was inspired by the soundtrack "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music. Ariana Grande revealed how the song was dedicated to her 6 best friends after she got drunk at Tiffany's (refer to the first line of the song) and bought herself along with her 6 friends matching engagement rings. On Twitter, she later revealed that there were actually 9 rings, which she bought for her mother and her Nonna later after the song was released.

The whole concept of "7 Rings" comes from a place of inspiring women to be their own source of happiness and to shop with your bffs until you drop. Ariana basically summed this up in her line "Wearing a ring, but ain't gon' be no 'Mrs.'"

Well, Ariana Grande is popular for her heartfelt and meaningful lyrics. Throughout her career, ever since she was red-haired Cat, she's released emotional and memorable tunes which all speak to her personally. "7 Rings" is no different, although it's basically an anthem to how rich she is. We stan a queen.

She said, "Twas a pretty rough day in NYC. My friends took me to Tiffany's. We had too much champagne and I bought us all rings. It was very insane and funny and on the way back to the studio Njomza was 'this gotta be a song,' so we wrote it that afternoon."
