American Horror Story Asylum is an entirely different story, and the first two episodes set a very strong pace for the show, that is why I am doing this one season by season. The story takes places in a mental institution. and by the way you get the same actors in different roles plus they added new faces. Each season is like a different mini-series that was a smart thing to do. In Asylum it takes place in a mental institution called Briarcliff in 1963. It is run by nuns and the head nun is Jessica Lange who is this tough bitch from hell and will stand at nothing and nobody will get on her way. You have the mad doctor who does experiment on patients, an interracial couple of which one of them ends up in the institution. Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson), a shady journalist who is intent on exposing Briarcliff’s manifold abuses but something happens to her. To add it all off in the mix they add some strange characters from the institution who are the patient there for years. Plus a serial killer on the loose.
What more do you want this season 2 kick Ass big time and it is addictive as hell. It is a joy to see those actors pulling this off beautifully well. So trust me when I say this when you watch this series drink a bloody Mary like I did. And it is a perfect series to watch in October.

Ben sees the housekeeper not as a middle-aged woman (Frances Conroy) but as her younger self (Alexandra Breckenridge); although Vivian gets a visit from a man in a latex jump suit. Jessica Lange plays this mom who is a bitch half the time who has a down syndrome daughter and goes out with a man half her age younger. Many more characters will come in from time to time and disrupt the family. This is a great horror stories the writers has put a lot of thought and use their imagination on this one and it shows. i am collecting those because some years later I am going to see it again and again. So be warned if you have not see it yet you will be hooked.

Sean McNamara and Christian Troy are two plastic surgeons running a partnership in Miami, Florida with views on life. Sean is plunging into his work because coming home to a needy wife, a rebellious son Matt and a daughter Annie doesn’t sound good to him. Christian is slick arrogant squirt chaser worship wine, women and money and he will do anything to get them.
Here is a series that is addictive, disturbing, and entertaining and I loved it. It start with 2 plastic surgeon who is starting a business everything is good and life is good. Later on during the seasons it escalate to where Sean and his dysfunctional family is getting more dysfunctional. while Christian is addicted to money, and sex and his life style is getting expensive although in the end is going to be along. Then they are some criminal who want his face redone so the police does not recognize him. The series broke new ground. Then there is the new technique that comes into play because that will bring more clients as Christian loves because he sees more money. This series has a supply of really shocker like talking cadaver heads, absurd casual sex, threesomes, amputations, transvestites, heroine smuggled in breast implants, sex dolls, conjoined twins and some Nazis thrown in for good measure. Buckle up and hold on for a hellish ride. Have fun.
