Campy beyond words... Messy, tacky, poorly written, full of disposable characters and stories. No urgency, no tension, no elegance, no mystery. The Murder House episode stained the good memories I had of that first season. I felt embarrassed for such a talented (but crowded) cast having to put up with the garbage the writers give them - particularly Cody Fern, who did the very best he could under the circumstances.
