Fall TV Keep It or Kill It: Scream Queens
Starring: Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedrad, Oliver Hudson, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, newcomer Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash,Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande.
Storyline: Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by Chanel Oberlin. But when anti-Kappa Dean Cathy Munsch decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc across the campus.
My Thoughts: When Ryan Murphy and Co are on, THEY ARE ON. Scream Queens is as over the top horrifying as it is hilarious. I just about fell on the floor when Keke Palmer’s character busted out the line “Bitch, I’m about to smack you so hard, your tampon gonna pop out”. My hope is that Scream Queens doesn’t fall victim to Ryan Murphy’s other hit American Horror Story, which always starts off strong but loses steam about 8 episodes in. It also needs to be noted that the soundtrack in this episode is top notch, I mean you have to love a show that plays TLC’s “Waterfalls” in the first 5-minutes, right?
Entertainista’s Verdict: Keep It.
