Popping in for a quick update.
Last year Kristan did a great job of recapping American Horror Story’s first season…
But this season we are calling in sick…
Yeah, more like calling in scared.
After watching the first 2 episodes we are both thinking that it might be a little “intense” for us this year.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all for scary movies..but AHS is taking it to the next level this season. No sunny Connie Britton or heart-throbby Dylan McDermott.
This season we are left with a lot of the side-characters from the first season playing completely different roles. It is essentially a new show, with the same name and a few of the same actors.
“Set in 1964, American Horror Story: Asylum takes us into a Church-run haven for the criminally insane, ruled with an iron fist by Sister Jude (Jessica Lange), a nun with a troubled past. Inside this locked down facility, danger lurks around every corner. From Nazis and serial killers, to mutants and aliens, no one is safe inside these walls. Starring Jessica Lange as “Sister Jude”, Sarah Paulson as “Lana Winters”, James Cromwell as “Dr. Arthur Arden,” Evan Peters as “Kit Walker,” Lily Rabe as “Sister Mary Eunice,” Lizzie Brocheré as “Grace,” Zachary Quinto as “Dr. Oliver Thredson,” and Joseph Fiennes as “Monsignor Timothy Howard.” Guest stars for the miniseries will include Frances Conroy, Chloe Sevigny, Adam Levine and Mark Consuelos.” – http://fxnetworks.com
And I don’t know about you, but any show that can make Mark Consuelos seem terrifying has totally crossed a line.
The first episode started with Adam Levine..which was totally promising, but we all knew it wouldn’t last. If you are gonna go exploring haunted asylums do you really deserve to survive?
So anyway… torture, nuns, clinically insane people playing checkers…I have to draw the line somewhere.
And for the sake of sleeping at night we have decided to take a break this time around…
I’d love to hear your thoughts, though, if you’ve watched any of the new season.
If you are brave American Horror Story: Asylum airs on FX Wednesdays at 10 pm EST
