Do We Need the Fake TV Show on American Horror Story?

SeattlePI.com Thursday, 15 September 2016 ()
Chapter One felt like a red herring all the way through: why hide this season's subject and setting in the marketing if the revealed story's just going to be about a city couple on a paranormal TV show telling the audience about how their fresh start in a creepy country house turned ghostly?

Mark my words, if this fake TV show device keeps up (and the promo suggests as much), there will come a moment where the terror reaches through the camera and finds its way back to Shelby an
