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.

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting

Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.
