American Horror Story

American Horror Story is an awesome freaky/scary show on FX that has gotten even better as the season progresses!  Initially we watched the first two episodes and thought, what the *$#& just happend?!  It was so weird and unlike anything else we've seen, that we weren't exactly sure what was going on.  There was just so much freaky unexplained stuff that it was difficult to wrap your mind around it and it was almost stressful watching it.  But now that we are down to the last 2 episodes of season 1, I have to say it was SO worth the effort to stick with it.  We now have a much better understanding of the big picture and can't wait to see how things continue to unfold. 

SPOILER ALERT:  Last week's episode Smoldering Children was kinda mind blowing.  We find out that Violet actually killed herself taking all of the pills several episodes back, but we never knew it and as a result, is now stuck in the house forever with the rest of them!  And Tate has been protecting her from finding out.  CrAzY!  Totally reminds me of the Sixth Sense movie.  This week's episode Birth was great as well!  The first baby was supposedly stillborn, but I'm guessing that's not the last we'll see of that one.  And with Vivien now on the other side, will Ben hang in there or come on over as well?  So many questions, so little time.  

I found a recap or two here.  And here is a season one finale sneak peek from E!.

I was talking about the show with a co-worker, who is also very into the show and we came across the following sites that are freaky/awesome as well!  Must see sites for anyone that likes the show!

You're Going to Die in There - This is an FX network site that is totally interactive and you click around and go into the house and can check out individual items and take a virtual spooky tour.  Very wild stuff.  And be sure to also click on the mailbox to register.  They will apparently send you a physical artifact from the house!  :-o  Check out this post on what this one site received, pretty elaborate!  I don't think regular average peeps would receive a wedding cake like that, but I will find out!  I just put in my info to receive one and will let you know what it is when I get it!

American Horror Story House Calls - This is insane, if you sign-up to 'let them in', a character from the show will come to your house at some undetermined point in some undetermined way to pay you a visit.  Whoa man, F that!  That would be freaky as $*%!  Be sure to check out the video links showing people they've visited already...Here is one, so great!

The Real American Horror Story House in LA - Great info on the actual house in LA.  And here's the location of the house on Google Maps.  It appears the house is for sale as well if you have 17 million burning a hole in your pocket.  I could so NOT live in that house, but would be cool to visit!   

Great show!  Be sure to check it out!

Season One Finale SPOILER Update:  Well...that's it?  I was very disappointed in the finale.  I thought last week's episode the Birth was way more exciting.  For this one we kinda expected something was going to happen to Ben, whether by his own doing or otherwise.  I didn't expect him to be hung and so early on, but still, was expecting more.  The scene with all the dead folks doing their thing to either go after or scare away the new family kinda reminded me of the movie Betelgeuse where they were trying to scare away the new folks that moved into their house after they died also.  And of course we all figured the baby next door was evil, maybe a little surprising he killed so early, but no real twist there either.  We've become so accustomed to earth shattering twists in the show lately that the finale came up a bit short.  And no real loose ends to keep you wondering what is next for the new season.  Oh well, great show, bad finale.  Hopefully next season they'll step it back up.

That's awesome, you are brave! My wife said "You didn't sign up for that did you?!?!" with fear in her voice. Didn't want to do that to her. Who am I kidding, I didn't want to do that to myself either! ;) Let me know how that goes!
