This was a farked up episode.

Actually, now that I think about it the whole show this season is farked up

/Nazis, aliens, demons, serial killers? It's like they took every horror movie bad guy and tossed them all together in an asylum.

Oh, and don't forget mutant creatures in the woods and an angel of death.

But, somehow, it doesn't seem like this show has jumped the shark. It's just done so well. And, after Dark Cousin, I could watch Lily Rabe for hours. She's absolutely fantastic.

I love AHS. This week's episode was the second time I've been legitimately disturbed while watching it. The first time was last season when Violet found her own body, decomposing.

I tried watching three episodes of 'merikun skull-f**ker -er- horror story in a row.
Don't do that! It really messes with your mind.

Watch one episode a week - with a soft warm blanket -and a smoothing cup of cocoa.

Hard to believe McShane played Judas Iscariot in the Jesus of Nazareth mini-series. Then again, Judas always was sort of a smarmy asshole.

Nah, what you need to do is watch commercial stripped versions of the episodes (DVD or torrent) in your basement, in the dark, lightly buzzed on alcohol. Makes for pleasant dreams, it does.

I think I'm one of the few people in the world who LOVED the first season but think this season blows mutant guts.

I'm watching it because i "have to", but I don't feel I have to watch it like I did the first season - knowwhatimean?

I'm the opposite; I really didn't much care for the first season but I really like Season Two. I like the setting a lot more and I disliked almost every character in the first season. This season has better characters.

welllll I WAS going to start watching the series...

maybe not now.

totally confused. seen every episode, love the show. have no idea what i just watched. the only Santa i know from American is a rather Aqualung character who was used by smoking hot blonde nun to do much dirty work this week.

/confused, totally

You know, I've said it before and I'll say it again, but I would watch McShane rape my cat and murder babies while happily tied to a chair made of barbed wire as long as he narrated the entire thing. That man has a voice of honey and steel.

I f*cking love this show. They DID jump the shark. They did it their first episode. The whole thing is a giant middle finger to people that want the show to be how those people think shows should be.

It's completely demented, and goes all over the place ... but in that chaos, it doesn't seem unfocused. They know what they're doing. And not in a retarded Lost "We Know What We're Doing (TM)" way, they just know how to tie the season together somehow, and so they just get to go balls out.

American Horror Story is a mixtape of the horror genre, but one made by Rob from High Fidelity. "There are a lot of rules." But they're totally coloring within the lines, the thing they're filling in is just completely bonkers.

The format of a Twilight-Zone-episode-per-season thing is also righteous. I hope they keep this up.

And Al Swearengen as insane Santa is the greatest thing since Al Swearengen in Deadwood. "Oh honey, this isn't Santa's blood." Love it.

i'll admit i get most excellent sleepytime sickness from that show. truly perverse sick enjoyment. loved every minute of it. if it was my reality i'd be fearing time in prison.
