Watched the Fox show, Scream Queens three times. Not because I'm fan of Ariana Grande, she does nothing for me, but the fact that the premiere episode was amazingly hysterical It combines the fashion sense of Clueless with the dark humor comedy cult classic Heathers. The sisters of Kappa Kappa Tau, one of the most popular and feared sorority sister house on campus has a long dark and murderous past but manage to avoid all indictments. Looking to induct new pledge girls from prestigious families, Dean Kathy Munsch changes the charter rules to allow anyone to join Kappa house. Chanel Oberlin, president of KKT and her snobbish, Chanel drones, now must do everything they can to uphold the Kappa legacy or be tarnish by sub-par pledge applicants.If that wasn’t enough, a knife wielding killer, dressed in a red devil costume, is out to kill members by any means necessary,
Succeeding after the former president of Kappa Kappa Tau accentential hydrochloric acid tanning, Chanel Oberlin, played by Emma Roberts, is a self absorbed college student who hopes someday by manipulating the weak, crushing the hopes of others and lots of backstabbing, has a chance at a position as a media news anchor. In the meantime, Dean Munsch (pronounced Munch), played by Jamie Lee Curtis, a former bra burning gal from the sixties, talks herself in moments of grandeur, vows to destroy the Kappa Tau sisterhood and Chanel for good. In the meantime, Grace Gardner, played by Skyler Samuel, dreams of becoming a Kappa sister, like her mother. She and her pledges witness the accidental death of sorority housekeeper, Ms. Bean and vows to take down Chanel and her minions to rebuild a new sisterhood.
With the death of Chanel # 2, Tiffany ( a death pledge girl with the most horrible case of Halitosis) and a black security guard are all killed by a mysterious killer in a red devil costume. Although the show offers some likely suspects, it the audience deduction to find the killer using character backstories and clues. Some of the most interesting characters includes Hester (aka Neckbrace), former Glee star Lea Michele, whose vast knowledge of disposing a body and mother issues, is a fun character to watch. There’s Predatory Lez, name Mac or Butch an Asian lesbian looking for a bikini burger. Jennifer, a sophomore whose knack for exotic candles goes online and vloggs her obsession with aroma smells - Just to mention a few.
Scream Queens overall is sinister dark comedy with weird spices from other countries with fatties and their big appetite and no form pumpkin spice latte is one quick-witted serial killer show. A great show to be entertained and Emma Roberts steal the spotlight. So, “What in hell fresh” will he next episode bring? Find out this Tuesday night at 9 PM on Fox, check local listing,
