Payton Hobart, a student from Santa Barbara, has known since age seven that he's going to be President of the United States. But first he'll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School.

The first episode was overwhelming great. There's so much to praise. Firstly, the cast's star talents, Jessica Lange's portrayal as the cash-sucking cow using her sick daughter to get ahead, and Ben Platt's Payton, who is carefully polished, yet slowly unravelling like a true perfectionist. Not to mention, Platt's beautiful emotional moments where you truly believe him and see him in a new way. This is a show where characters promise to strive for equality, while the show is equip and self-aware about their Conservative life-styles, and Liberal pawn-usage of people among their community. It's an honest look at the state of our political system that is subtlety referenced through a grandeur of melodramatic and campy finesse. Ryan Murphy has truly gone above and beyond the likes of Glee, Scream Queens, American Horror Story, and I dare say Crime Story as well. It really just comes down to see if he can maintain the consistency of the characters, plots, and themes he's set up. Based on the first episode alone, this show is destined for an Emmy nomination, and deservedly a win.

We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

It may force him to be more consistent and create a tangible storyline.

You say that like Glee and Scream Queens did that.

Glee and SQ are 7 and 4 years old. And coming off a few good AHS seasons, ACS... maybe he has the writing chops now.
