American Horror Story: Asylum

 Welcome to Briarcliff Manor, a notorious insane asylum home to the deranged serial killer, Bloody Face. Lurking in the shadows of this "sanctuary of healing" are terrifying evils that blur the boundaries between reality and insanity.

    I didn't know what to expect when I started watching this.  I am not much of a TV watcher, in fact the only time I watch a TV series is when I have to review it, so as with many, I had never even heard of this show.
    I found this second season of American Horror Story to be a great show!  It is definitely not for the faint of heart or the squeamish in any way, honestly I'm pleasantly surprised that it airs on television.  This show will take you on a roller coaster ride of thrills and excitement.  The anticipation of what's going to happen next will captivate you.  Capturing your attention as you await unexpected twists and turns.  This show has surprised me on many occasions, it's very well written, very extremely well acted.  It is completely a welcome addition to the television line up.  It's so nice to get away from all of the same old mundane shows on television (which are why I don't watch it anymore) and introduce something a little more cutting edge, a little more exciting, a show in which you cannot predict the next thing that will happen.  I enjoyed that most of this, even if I had an inkling of what might happen next I was thrown through a loop and something incredibly different happened.
    A story within a story this season is sure to satisfy folks like me who love suspense and thrills.  You need to watch this season, but only if you can handle it.  I'd like to say that I could handle it but there were a couple (rare, but a couple) of occasions where I found myself peering through my tightly grasped fingers to see the "ugly" people in the woods.  Some parts were grosser than others but in all this show was fantastic.  I really appreciate that someone finally stepped out of the box and made a show worth watching.

I give this show 4 out of 4 thumbs up!
