The 'Horror'! The 'Horror'!

Posted on October 17, 2012 

I can't say I ever watched a minute of "American Horror Story" when it debuted last season, so I won't be tuning in this time around when Season 2 begins (FX, 10 p.m.).

I call it Season 2, but as the Emmy voters might say, it's supposed to be a different show this time around, with the milieu and characters all changing from Season 1. The only holdover from the previous cast, Jessica Lange, is playing a different role this time around.

That little snag allowed "American Horror Story" to move from the drama categories at the Emmys to the miniseries/movie categories, because it was considered an anthology. Not that it helped that much for the show's award totals in the wake of "Hatfields & McCoys" and "Game Change."

This time around, the action is set in an insane asylum, where I'm guessing bad and creepy things happen.

Anyway, watch for yourself if you feel like it.
