LA Times -- TV Review: 'American Horror Story' on FX

LA Time says

"American Horror Story" (FX) is a big ol' brooding, baffling, ridiculous and occasionally compelling mess of a show. Never big fans of narrative convention, creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have rejected the essential rule of horror — the unseen is more terrifying than the revealed — in favor of the same "more is more" theology that fuels their equally defiant "Glee." As a result, early episodes seem less concerned with telling a scary story than pelting the viewer with story lines, vignettes, disturbing imagery, psycho-sexual titillation and the odd moment of high camp.

The story is too old to be commented.

Not exactly what I was expecting although I didn't really know what it was going to be like. I knew it was going to be weird but it was even worse than I thought. I'm not sure it will be something I'll keep up with but for now I'm still curious until something else comes along. It's no Nip Tuck and I'm not impressed with the writing either. I wanted so much more in the scary side.
