American Horror Story-spoiler free review

FX, known for pushing boundries, debuted their new show, American Horror Story.  It is Rated TVMA for sex, violence, language, and brief nudity.  Yep, it had all of those things, a lot of all of these things.  This might be the raciest thing not on a pay channel right now.  So, be warned.

Horror wise, the show sets up the mystery of the house in the first 5 minutes and only builds it from there.  The sex scenes are actually somewhat contextual as they fit into the story, but don't get me wrong, they are definitely gratuitous.  I imagine this show will stir up some controversy.

Overall, the acting was done well, the special effects were good, and the story was very intriguing.  I will most likely be tuning in.  The wife didn't care for it at all, but she doesn't like horror and really doesn't go for the gratuitous sex scenes.  Make sure the kids are in bed for this one.  

oh, the young maid is hot!

I was very intrigued as well. It was like the first episode of Nip/Tuck...with ghosts. LOVE! I'm a horror lover...and a gratuitous sex enjoyer, so I was entertained. Even The Man (who usually doesn't watch those type of shows) was locked in and he missed the first 20 minutes. I will be watching more.

Crap, I wonder if I caught it on my DVR...?

Damn, I missed it. I'll have to try harder this week.

There is nothing else even close to it on TV these days. I saw it and loved it. My favorite line so far was when Jessica Lange said to the maid (older version), "don't make me kill you again!"
