I think that's why sometimes the show can seem overwhelming, which others have said is down to the cluttered script. That's really the only thing that bothers me. Some people say the cinematography is terrible, but I dig it. It's got it's own visual style and all elements of the production are top notch infact. I also think the show could really benefit from a few more episodes each season, say 15 or something, to give them chance to really explore every subplot properly.
That's my major complaint as well. It sometimes feels you are sitting within a big commercial for an asylum or a godamn freak show. The editing is just too fast and hectic up to the point becoming an distraction. I get the reason why they are doing it, but the pace isn't in the end well-balanced.
There's no leaning back on that show.
I like the concept of witches and the possible appearance of Salem, sounds great to me.
Next up episode three of season two.
