Why 1950s America was *Not* Magical!!

How does this relate to American Horror Story Season Four, you ask? Well, a few days ago Ryan Murphy announced this “period piece” that Jessica Lange was “already working on her German accent for”, would definitely be set in 1950. He’s currently refusing to, well, spoil the fun and give any more than that other than some very vague hints about the “theme” for season 4 of AHS… so we’re speculating until then. On the basis of a sort of out-of-context line in the January 15th episode which Ryan Murphy said contained an “Easter Egg” as a clue, our money is on McCarthyism as a theme (wheeee! We hope we’re wrong) with a title like American Horror Story – Red Scare. This excellent piece by Indiana Jen will give you some more food for thought…

Hmmm, there were supposed to be clues tonight, but Ryan Murphy won’t hint about them. Any guesses? We’re still hoping for a circus/sideshow theme.
