Over the past few weeks, we’ve been treated to 10 second snippets for the new season of American Horror Story: Freakshow. These have included terrifying clowns, sword swallowers, and more. Now, we finally have the official extended trailer for season four!
The trailer, titled “Voyeur,” gives us a first look inside the big tent. The song, Carousel by Melanie Martinez, fits perfectly, and really almost outshines the trailer, which only gives us a closer look at the different “freaks.” “It’s always a freakshow”, she croons.
Check it out.
The season’s official description reads, “This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amid the dying world of the American carny experience.”
It will start in Florida in the year 1952 and focuses on the last freakshow in the world. As the performs arrive to the town, so does a dark entity, threatening folks in town.
Freakshow stars Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars, the ringleader in charge. Kathy Bates as the bearded lady, Effil Darling. Jimmy Peters as Effil’s husband, Jimmy Darling. Emma Roberts as Maggie. Sarah Paulson as Bettie and Dot Totter. Michael Chiklis as strong-man Wednell del Toro and Angela Bassett as three-breasted Desiree Dupree.
Other’s returning to the season include Gabourey Sidibe and Frances Conroy. Newcomers Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch, Finn Wytorck and the worlds smallest woman, JJoyti Amge.
Freakshow debuts Oct. 8 on FX.

‘Tiger King’ Comic Book Provides Origin Story for Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin’s Feud
Someone call the superheroes because there are two new comic book villains in town!
If you couldn’t get enough Tiger King and want to know more about the rivalry between Joseph Maldonado Passage aka Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, you’re going to have the grab the brand new biography comic book.
The 24-page flipbook titled “Infamous: Tiger King,” was released on Wednesday by TidalWave Productions and written by Michael Frizell and drawn by Joe Paradise.
It’s based on the largely streamed Netflix documentary series that debuted in mid-March.
The press release describes the comic book as the “origin story” of the “stranger than fiction” feud between Joe, the flamboyant, gay zookeeper and former country star, and Carole, his arch-nemesis and owner of Big Cat Rescue. Joe is currently in jail for the attempted murder-for-hire of Carole. A judge recently gave Baskin control of Joe’s zoo.
The missing person’s case against Carole’s late husband, Don Lewis, is being revisited after Joe claimed she killed him in 1997 and fed him to tigers.
Rightfully, the comic “book will also include a page about the treatment of animals from written by PETA Foundation Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Brittany Peet, who was also in the Netflix documentary.”
“This is one of the first times since we left Diamond almost a decade ago to have fun with comic book retailers. If they bought a certain amount of comic books, we gave them a variant for Free.” said Publisher Darren G. Davis. “Putting this book together with Joe and Michael might be one of the best times I have had in comic books in over 20 years”.
Print copies of the comic are available on Amazon and through various comic book retailers.
The digital version can be purchased on iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold. There are 14 variant covers for the comic, so be sure to snag the one you like best!
Survey Finds ‘Tiger King,’ ‘Money Heist’ and ’13 Reasons Why’ Most Watched Netflix Shows During COVID
What are your viewing habits during the months-long coronavirus pandemic?
If you’re a TV connoisseur like myself, you’ve likely been enjoying this time indoors by catching up on the laundry list of shows you’ve filed away under “to binge one day when there’s time.”
There’s time now — lots of it.
Turns out, the shows I’ve been wanting to watch were also on other people’s lists because many of them made it to LoveCraft.com’s list of “most loved Netflix shows” during the pandemic.
The site analyzed Google Trends data since March 2020 to find the most popular shows by state.
Unsurprisingly, Tiger King (which seems like it was a lifetime pre-COVID) was the most watch documentary in a total of nine states.
Money Heist (which I recommend with every fiber of my being because it’s the most thrilling show I’ve seen in well, forever) landed in second place pulling views from New York, California, and New Jersey.
The Southern states were most into 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale.
The Chicago Bulls documentary series The Last Dance was unsurprisingly the top viewed show in Illinois.
All that binge-watching takes a lot of time, so LoveCraft, a global crafting community, used the research to develop a calculator to figure out how much knitting can be done while watching the most popular shows across the United States.
“Knitting and watching TV have always gone hand-in-hand. There’s even a name for it now – Nitflixing! What’s not to love about watching your favorite show while working on your latest make. With our craft calculators, you can now work out how many episodes it will take to complete your next project. Perhaps you knit yourself a new hat while watching Money Heist, or go the distance and make two crocheted blankets while binging Riverdale!”
Turns out, you can make some solid pieces while watching Money Heist, 13 Reasons Why, or American Horror Story.
Check it out:
- Tiger King: 5 hours = a knitted pair of booties for a baby
- Money Heist: 31 hours = a knitted hat for an adult
- 13 Reasons Why: 46 hours = a crocheted bag
- Stranger Things: 22 hours = a crocheted toy
- American Horror Story: 86 hours = a knitted jumper for an adult
- The Last Dance: 10 hours = a crocheted pair of booties for a baby
- Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich: 4 hours = a knitted pair of booties for a baby
- Black Mirror: 22 hours = a crocheted baby romper
- Riverdale: 63 hours = two crocheted blankets
- Dead to Me: 9 hours = a knitted candle holder
You can also check out the breakdown of popular Netflix shows by states with the highest population:
- California – Money Heist
- Texas – 13 Reasons Why
- Florida – Money Heist
- New York – Money Heist
- Illinois – The Last Dance
- Pennsylvania – 13 Reasons Why
- Ohio – Stranger Things
- Michigan – The Last Dance
- Georgia – Riverdale
- North Carolina – Tiger King
And while Grey’s Anatomy didn’t make the list, the series is the longest-running on Netflix with 363 episodes adding up to 260 hours. In that time, you could knit 10 children’s jackets.
If there was ever a time for you to multi-task and take up knitting, it’s now when you’re watching all these TV shows!
