*SPOILER FREE* .. sort of
Last night FX kicked of the second season of American Horror Story.
You might be asking yourself… “Dude, I haven’t seen the first season yet. Should I wait to watch that before watching this?”
In one of the most unique styles to create a show, American Horror Story Asylum breaks away from its previous season with a whole new story line, plot, and characters. If you did watch the first season, you’ll recognize some familiar faces (Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson). It took me a little while to disconnect all of the character development and relations that I grew to love in the first season, but that lasted all of 2 minutes after Adam Levine started banging a chick on a crazy person bed chair thingy.
Last night’s episode was interesting. There’s definitely more of a religious tie in compared to last season, where you just had a haunted house with people dying in it.
Now you got Jessica Lange going all psycho nun on everyone as opposed to her last character, the annoying nosy neighbor that was clearly hiding something).
Evan Peters… well….. he’s pretty much the same. A crazy kid, that you have no idea what’s going on with his character. His character is going to probably reveal something halfway into the season.
Sarah Paulson, who previously had a small role as Lange’s psychic friend, now seems to be a main character as a reporter trying to figure out whats going on in the asylum. *cough*shutter island*cough*
CAST MVP: Jessica Lange. So far her character seems to be the only one that’s putting it all out there. Everyone else is hiding something/ keeping quiet.
EPISODE RATING: 4.5/5 (could have been a tad scarier)
