American Horror Story: Coven (2013-2014)

The third season of American Horror Story delved into the world of witchcraft, focusing on a coven at Miss Robicheaux's Academy in modern day New Orleans.  The hunt ;-) is on to see who will be the next to reign Supreme... with a little encouragement by Stevie Nicks.

Coven was more campy in tone than Murder House and Asylum, fully equipped with snarky comments and hijinks amidst the horror.  Jessica Lagne outdoes herself as debilitating Supreme Fiona Goode and Kathy Bates is incredibly amusing as the 19th-century slave owner/decimator and resident racist Delphine Lalaurie, who struggles adjusting to life in the 21st-century.  And featuring songs from my favorite band Fleetwood Mac was a cauldron ;-) of gravy.   Overall, American Horror Story: Coven had me completely under it's spell ;-)
