Geekenstein writes, "I felt that the first season of American Horror Story walked a fine line between goofy and disturbing. I mean, Dylan Mcdermott was in it, how serious could it be? I couldn’t decide whether I like the show or not until I finished the last episode, I did like it, but there was something about it that left me unsure for so long. At the very least, I was intrigued enough to watch the entire season and ended up enjoying it. Asylum seemed to be an interesting proposition, since it is a completely new storyline with all new characters."
