Is Ryan Murphy a terrible writer?

I honestly think he's one of the worst current writers/producers that we have. It's like he does what he does just so he can fill up his personal library of reaction gifs, to use when shipping for his favorite pairings on online fan forums devoted to his own shows.

 

Thoughts?

I think his shows start fine, and then they fly completely off the rails into unwatchable garbage.

He's great at creating moments and concepts but not so much executing them past the first season

Actually yes. A lot of his stuff seem to target tumblr/twitter teens who constantly post memes about being depressed & searching for a sugar daddy & it’s clearly working out favorably for him so yah. 

 

I remeber a line that Emma says in an AHS season where she’s like, “if I had a child I’d be uncapable of loving it unless it was popular” which was so bad yet still made the rounds on instagram. I was seeing it all over my explore page with different captions and I think that’s what he tries to do most of the time. Create memes basically.

Lol not with that avi.

 

OT- He has moments of genius brilliance but since he creates so much considering he has like 294792 shows, his talent is spread thin and the cracks are in full display.

He has good ideas but he can't execute them very well. 

He's on the same level of D&D

His characters and plots come across like they were written by teenagers

No

 

The potential is there but he can never successfully tell a story without and it be engaging throughout. EVERY season I've seen of AHS starts off amazing then half way gets unwatchable.

Yes. White men are just about always allowed to succeed despite their mediocrity though, so what else is new?
