If you haven’t seen “Scream Queens”, then what have you been doing with your life? It’s one of the best shows on TV to date. It’s been stated by the creator Ryan Murphy and many of the cast members that the show is a mix of “Scream and Heathers.”
If that doesn’t sound like the best mix of genres you have ever heard, I don’t know what is. The show is a perfect blend of scary, funny, and sexy and is a show of all genders and ages.
The cast is one of the most diverse casts on cable TV right now. They have actors such as Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, and many more.
The cast is full of people of all ages which is way it has connected to people of all ages, and is relatable in that aspect. People loved Lea Michele on “Glee”, as well as Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande from shows like “Victorious” and “Jonas” as well as heard them on the radio for their extensive music careers.
Nasim Pedrad, from SNL, is another actor on the long cast list of “Scream Queens.” She brings the comedy to the show while also bringing the audience from SNL over to “Scream Queens.” She is one of my favorite characters because of her dry humor and somewhat ditzy personality.
Ryan Murphy, the creator of “Glee”, “American Horror Story”, and now “Scream Queens” is one of the most brilliant writers in our generation.
His ability to create three shows that are so incredibly different in genre but all equally as impressive is something that is hard to come by nowadays. Not only is he brilliant when it comes to writing and producing, but his ability to cast amazing actors that seem as though they are the character is what really makes a good show. He brought over Emma Roberts, who started in season 3 of “American Horror Story”, and Lea Michele was the main character in “Glee”, recognizing their talent as versatile and utilizing that talent to create an amazing show.
If “Scream Queens” isn’t on your list of Tuesday night shows, then it should be now because you’re truly missing out. The writing, staging, and acting all combine to create a funny, scary, and entertaining show that everyone should be watching.
