5. American Horror Story: Roanoke

     Fx has presented the best of the best with American Horror Story and in season six they don't disappoint. This series is an anthology, which means the each season has a different storyline with the same characters and in some ways each season connects with each other. When the first episode premiered, no one knew what to expect because they kept everything a secret. Fx released 24 misdirected promos and only one of them was the true storyline. Later on we found out it was based upon the myth of Roanoke Colony, which is  one of the first colonies built on what we know today as North Carolina, and the entire colony, all 117 men, women, and children, died. So the story is shown to us in docudrama format where it's told by the real people in the interviews and then reenacted by actors for our viewing of what happened. The story follows Matt, Shelby and Lee as they move into the a house in the middle of the country of North Carolina, and, as they begin to settle into their new home, strange and paranormal occurrences begin to haunt them. This season was anything other than what we expect, the creators did a phenomenal job at leaving me shock after every episode. The season has since concluded, but I can't wait to watch it again.
