From the first frames of that stellar, Saul Bass-inspired main titles sequence , we knew we were in for a glamorous but gruesome Old Hollywood treat.
No one excels in the first season — anthology or regular series — like Ryan Murphy. The actresses never stood a chance against the ageism, sexism, and misogyny of the time. Hell, the series even had us guessing about that darn cat Stone adopted. John Kerry. Kerry, the former secretary of state, was a longtime Senate colleague of Biden's.
