So what does everyone think about An American Horror Story?
My wife and I watched the last two episodes. While episode 2 had its surreal moments, they seemed to tone that aspect of the show down. Episode one was more like Twin Peaks, where episode two was much more like the movie called Funny Games...
They seem to try and show skin whenever possible, and weird stuff happens out of nowhere, but the premise is tried and true. A good haunted house story can always yield a good show. They certainly push the limits of what is okay to show on television.
The story behind the daughter is messed up, but I won't give away anything in the show. Some of the scenes are beautiful; the scary can be downright scary; the weird and creepy factors are strong.
If you don't mind MA content, I would give this show a chance. If you haven't seen it, look it up on FX. Be warned though, they go for shock value just as often as they go for real scares. There is nudity, graphic content and everything else that the MA label implies.
If you've seen this show, tell me what you think of it.
