American Horror Story — Series 5: Hotel — Episode 12: ‘Be Our Guest’

20th May, 2018.

OK …

It’s a Sunday night …

But you’d possibly guessed that by … well … looking at the dates … and at the introductory video.

I don’t usually have the lights on, that early!

Or the music, quite frankly.

OMD album, Architecture and Morality is still a damn good album: even after all this time.

Souvenir?   Is still a song I want played at my funeral.

No, before you ask!   I’m not suicidal, thank you!

I just think it’s a suitable tune to play, and one I feel would set the right tone …


At any rate … ?

At any rate: I’m back at work, tomorrow night.

Which means I can sleep in late: comparatively.

AND not worry about staying up late to write a post.

About a TV show.

You’re right.

I’ve caught a TV show.

The last episode of American Horror Story: fifth series, Hotel.

Yes … that WAS rather good.


Episode 11Be Our Guest — opens in the wake of Liz and Iris (Denis O’Hare and Kathy Bates) murder of the Countess (Lady Gaga).

The pair have taken over The Cortez: and intend on try to spivvy it up.

AND attract paying customers: ones that Walk out alive, rather than get murdered by Sally (Sarah Paulson) and Will (Cheyenne Jackson).

It’s only with persuasive talking?

The ghosts decide to stop entertaining themselves.

Apart … from John Lowe (Wes Bentley.)

He’s wanting to make sure his family …

Have a home that’s NOT invade by TV crews …


Now …

I am decidedly sleepy.

Blame the heat!


I’ve not been overwhelmed by Hotel: I think the emotional high point of American Horror Story has been Asylum, and working every hour I can has left me distracted.


This series is up to the show’s overall standard, showing us a blend of solid writing, twisty ideas, and great performances.

Denis O’Hare, in particular, stood out for me.


Hotel’s a winner, as far as I’m concerned.
