American Horror Story Season 6 Episode 3 Review: Chapter 3

  • TVfanatic
This was the best installment of the season yet.

American Horror Story Season 6 Episode 3 was a great, suspenseful hour of the series. It also managed to introduce a delightful new character – betting Cricket will go down in Ahs history as a fan favorite – and clarified a huge amount of backstory regarding the "principal" ghost, the Butcher.

One criticism to address right off the bat: "Chapter 3" was a major info dump. Like, it was so noticeably obvious that a character just went ahead and called it as it was.

The spirits downloaded to me like a paranormal zip drive.

Zip file, indeed.

Cricket was literally traipsing through the woods when the ghosts took it upon themselves to telepathically transpose the 411 about their history, motives, and plans? Uh-huh. Right. Gotcha.

Despite how unimaginatively the exposition was laid out,

[Review] Mr. Church

If you didn’t know what you were getting into upon sitting down for Bruce Beresford‘s Mr. Church, you will following this onscreen text: “Inspired by a True Friendship.” The vagueness of this statement notwithstanding, the words ooze enough schmaltz to prepare you for the melodrama of death and miracles screenwriter Susan McMartin has concocted. Maybe she based it on a friendship she had with an adult male who become her father figure in a time of need or perhaps the entire premise is a purely fictional construct surrounding feelings experienced within a relationship devoid of similarities besides being between two people. All I know for certain is that those involved didn’t just want to make any old tearjerker; they sought to squeeze their audience dry like a sponge.

Despite the plot dealing with the cook (Eddie Murphy‘s Henry Joseph Church) a married dead man hired in

Awkward Star Ashley Rickards Joins The Flash Season 3 As The Top; Captain Cold's Return Set

E! News is reporting that The Flash has cast Ashley Rickards as Rosalind "Rosa" Dillion a.k.a. The Top and she'll make her debut as the extremely dangerous DC Comics villain in the fourth episode of the upcoming third season.  Rickards' iteration will be a new take on The Top, a male character in the comics, but she'll retain the same metahuman abilities, which are to make people's heads spin. Her version will also likely share a fairly intimate relationship with Grey Damon's Mirror Master as she's being teased as the Bonnie to his Clyde. Rickards is best known for her lead role as Jenna Hamilton on MTV's comedy drama series Awkward and has also guest-starred on episodes of Zoey 101, Ugly Betty, One Tree Hill, Entourage, and American Horror Story: Murder House. Her film credits include Fly Away, Sassy PantsA Haunted House 2, and Behaving Badly.

Haley Joel Osment Goes Indie in Kevin Smith's 'Tusk' & 'Me Him Her'

Last year we featured the resurgence of child star Haley Joel Osment all grown up, playing a man's boyfriend in the indie Sassy Pants, and now Deadline reports the 25-year-old actor is continuing his comeback in the indie world with two more roles that should get him back in the spotlight. First, Osment is joining Kevin Smith's bizarre horror film Tusk. The story follows a podcast host (Justin Long) who goes missing in the backwoods of Canada, where he's forced to dress up and act like a walrus for a twisted man's (Michael Parks) companionship. Osment will play his best friend who goes on a search to find him along with his girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez). Production begins next month in North Carolina. But that's not all. Osment will also star in Me Him Her, the new film from Chronicle writer Max Landis. There are no details on the story at this time,

The voting on our Best Lesbian/Bi Movie Ever poll closes next Tuesday, and if you haven't yet figured out what film deserves your click of approval, then perhaps you'll take some professional opinions into account. We asked some of our favorite out directors, actors and writers to tell us which movie they'd vote for to win the title of Best Lesbian/Bi Movie Ever, and it proved to be an interesting experiment. Most of them had the same problem you do: It's hard to pick just one! You might even get a few new films to watch out of reading their responses.

Morning Meme: The Morning-After-The Election Crowdsourced Edition

Editor's Note - Ed Kennedy was our social media hero with the election results last night, and didn't get a chance to finish the Meme. We'll have a wrap-up of the history that was made, but in the meantime, enjoy these tidbits from Ed, and feel free to add your own! (but please keep it PG-13!).

Something that caught my eye was CBS News correspondent Mo Rocca, an out gay man. His tweet said "As a @CBSNews correspondent I can't tell you how I voted. So I'll show you..." He then tweeted this photo. Have we found a new gay Republican, or am I misinterpreting it?

I don't see how I could be missing the meaning here

 Harry Shum might want to try ProActive for that

Sassy Pants | Review - Polari (aGLIFF) 2012

As Sassy Pants begins, Bethany's (Ashley Rickards) high school graduation is rapidly approaching. She has been elected the valedictorian of her home-schooled class...of one. And, no, she does not want to give a speech. We quickly learn that Bethany's mother (Anna Gunn) is a tyrannical parent who has been left to her own devices to raise her two children -- Bethany and Shayne (Martin Spanjers) -- ever since her husband (Diedrich Bader) was caught doing the nasty with one of Bethany's male teachers. Her husband's infidelity has left Anna a bitter and jaded woman who no longer trusts anyone. This is precisely why she has home-schooled her kids; additionally, she wants Bethany to remain at home post-graduation and study via an online college. She is doing her best to shelter her children from the overtly dishonest world. The problem is, her over-protective nature is smothering Bethany and Shayne.

Good morning!

Jodie Foster is developing a female-centric mob series for Showtime. Angie’s Body is said to be "a Sopranos-like drama that follows a shrewd and lethal woman who runs a family-based crime syndicate." It doesn't look like Jodie will star in it, but she is going to direct and executive produce. It's Showtime so I hope there are lesbians.

Remember when Wendi McLendon-Covey got drunk and kissed Ellie Kemper in Bridesmaids? Well now she's committing to being a lesbian on Modern Family. The funny lady will be playing "one-half of a lesbian couple whose son gets into a fight with Lily on the first day of kindergarten." Michaela Watkins will be her wife and Wendi tells EW:

Ashley Rickards Teases 'Awkward' Shockers

Now that I've publicly Dtr'd with Awkward in various interviews and gushy posts, I no longer feel the need to begin these posts explaining why I have such a deep love for the smartest, slyest, funniest show MTV has ever aired. And with the second season continuing to deepen my admiration for the wonderful world Lauren Iungerich has created, I feel the best is still yet to come.

Something star Ashley Rickards confirmed when we chatted in anticipation of tonight's third episode. One that sees the Matty/Jenna/Jake love triangle take an unexpected turn. But according to Ashley, that's nothing compared to a pair of major shocks that are set for later this season! First of all, I have loved the new season so far.

Ashley Rickards: Thanks! I have to say, there's some pretty freaking exciting stuff coming up that's going to sound like a publicity pitch – but I'm actually downplaying it because

‘Sassy Pants’ Trailer and Poster Featuring Haley Joel Osment

  • The Film Stage
Remember Haley Joel Osment, the adorable/creepy kid from The Sixth Sense and Pay It Forward? He’s making a comeback in Sassy Pants and trying his darndest to make a new impression on a public that hasn’t seen him in a feature film since 2003 when he starred Secondhand Lions.

In the new independent comedy, he plays Chip, a young, hard-partying gay man who forms a relationship with his much older boyfriend’s naïve daughter. The bold career move reminds me of Macaulay Culkin, another former child star who tried to make the difficult transition into adult stardom by reemerging in edgy projects like Party Monster and the religious comedy Saved!. While it didn’t exactly work for Culkin, hopefully Osment’s makes a much more successful re-introduction on Jan. 28, the day when Sassy Pants premieres at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Written and directed by Coley Sohn,
