'American Horror Story: Freak Show' RECAP - 'Pink Cupcakes' [Spoilers]

Bomer

 THAT's more like it. I stand by my assessment that the Edward Mordrake episodes were fairly weak. For a Halloween horror spectacular, the two-part story was only scary to those who have a crippling fear of exposition. Unlike tonight's episode, which was tense and disturbing and also sexy and even at times funny. ("I'd rather be boiled in oil than be on television" is no "KNOTTY PINE?!" but it was still the kind of line that only Jessica Lange could deliver properly.)

Tonight also marked Matt Bomer's American Horror Story debut, and it certainly was ... memorable. 

Let’s start with the Dandy story of the evening. But before we get into all the terrifying, twisted action, can we just take a minute to ogle appreciate Finn Wittrock?

HBO Developing Dramedy Centered Around A Queer Black Man And His Brothers

Screenshot 2014-11-04 01.57.40

The creative minds behind Red Tails and Dear White People are collaborating on Bros., a new dramedy in development for HBO centered around a queer black man and his straight brothers. Originally titled Bros Before Hos, the series revolves around Kendall, a man newly out to his brothers and navigating his way through life as a modern gay man.

Much like HBO’s Girls and Looking, the buzz and early production work around Bros makes it out to be driven more by its characters’ interactions with one another rather than the central conceit of the show. Ben Jones, the series’ lead writer, explained that he doesn’t envision the show as being a black story or a gay story.

“There seem to be more stories that deal with the interior lives of black women, but it’s hard to find stories that deal with the interior lives of black men,” He explained to Indiewire earlier this year. “We’re either thugs or athletes, but there’s so much more to who we are that falls in between that spectrum.”

Bros. would be one of HBO’s first series to feature an LGBT character of color starring in a central role--a move very much in line with the general trend towards increased queer diversity in cable programming.

“We both know so many people, not just African-Americans, who question why there isn’t more programming that reflects the growing diversity of the American experience,” Jokes said Bros. director Anthony Hemingway and his reason for leading production. “So it’s incredibly satisfying to be a part of something that might otherwise be overlooked or ignored.”
