In a horrifying and exciting atmosphere, this series presents a new story in each season, following it from the beginning till its' end. And it has managed to achive great success and get high rates among the critics. In this season, we see a new exciting story which takes after the final people who survived after the Apocalypse. They have to follow particular rules if they want to keep in safe.
There were whispers of something interesting in the first few episodes of "Cult" last year before the season devolved into predictable "AHS" drivel, but the opening scene of "Apocalypse" is a fantastic start.
It's "American Horror Story," so I guess we should have expected the first episode of "Apocalypse" to be weird and confusing, but this one feels particularly obtuse. That's not a criticism - just a note about how extra-weird this season is shaping up .
