Forgettable Episode
22 September 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"Potato Boy" is the nineteenth episode of the "American Gothic" in the DVD Box of the Complete Season. However I have decided to follow the sequence indicated by IMDb to make sense.

In this forgettable episode, nothing important happens. We just see Caleb intrigued with a deformed outcast boy that sings all the time with a sweet voice and visiting him in the end; the promiscuous Selena in disgrace with the inhabitants in Trinity and getting closer to the needy Caleb; and Dr. Matt Crower depressed with the death of his wife and child. My vote is six.
