Because the themes vary so much it comes down to personal taste. I love the campiness of Coven and Hotel so those are my favorite seasons. My 3rd probably being apocalypse just because it brought back the witches.

If you prefer more scary over camp, or more gore, or more supernatural horror vs realism, or you prefer a period piece over a present day story, etc etc all those things will influence your opinion. And of course nostalgia for the early seasons on top of that.

For me every AHS season is a huge concept with the best ideas I’ve ever seen, but, somehow the endings are not the best and there improvement areas in the execution of the ideas. That’s why it gives us one of the best and worst momentos

I’d rank Asylum and Cult as top tier (I personally believe the latter is the best season). 

In some aspects, Freak Show (great writing and overall plot, underlying themes) and Hotel (incredible acting, characters, and visuals) are almost top tier; however, they kind of get lost in their own grandiosity.

1984, although not my favorite, is well-done, and mostly consistent (a surprise for an AHS season, tbh). I’d rank it mid-to-top tier.

Murder House, Coven, and Roanoke, I would place right in mid-tier. They have some aspects that are incredible, and some that are... very much not.

Apocalypse is definitely lowest tier, unfortunately.

Wow, Cult is so underrated here. On ATRL and Reddit it is consistently hailed as a top tier season.

Cult is by far the most cohesive and tightest season so far. It has a clear theme, a single storyline, well defined main characters and a clear end goal.

Analyzing Cult and its structure lets you see just how messy most of the other seasons are.

Most seasons have no idea what theme they are supposed to have, what story they’re telling, or who the main characters are even supposed to be.

If you look at a season as just a collection of scenes, then sure, seasons like Coven and Hotel have more iconic and enjoyable scenes, but as a whole, everything in Cult just works and clicks together almost flawlessly, unlike those seasons.

Cult was fresh, original, bold and ballsy. It’s the only season that comes close to Asylum’s quality because it knows what it wants to be, instead of being a collection of stories the writers play with until they find something good enough that sticks.

As someone interested in storytelling I have so much respect for seasons like Asylum and Cult. And I implore everyone who dismisses it to please give it a try and try to understand the political message behind it.
