With the recent debut of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: 1984, Wynter and Karen take the occasion to explore his deeply nostalgic oeuvre to consider whether or not his dominion is 80s camp or 90s magic realism, i.e. horror stories or true crime stories? The two talk about where they were when Richard Ramirez, the serial killer known as the Nightstalker and resurrected in AHS 1984, was wreaking havoc IRL. Wynter goes Inside Out with Demi Moore’s new autobiography, Karen GAGS over the recently announced thirtysomething reboot, while both take a detour into The Affair’s wild psychosexual turns as it wraps up its series run. Nuo-lingo tells you why this year’s “GAG” is not 1984’s, and we give you a song of the week that Ryan Murphy has yet to harvest from 1984’s Hot 100 for his over-the-top slasher series.
