Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I were casually texting back and forth about our topics for TV Tuesdays, which is starting next week on Artists on Demand. I said, "I don't watch a lot of TV." She said, "I watch a lot of TV." We tried to compare what we did watch and the last thing she said to me was, "I don't watch anything horror."
I completely understand that because I have a very paradoxical relationship with the genre. Horror scares me, but I love horror. Hence the paradox. Okay, I realized that it's supposed to scare me, but it really scares me. I like being scared. There is nothing worse than something that's supposed to be frightening and it ends up being sad and funny.
All that being said, I am looking forward to a few shows this fall. The Walking Dead and American Horror Story. Season one of AMHS titillated me (Dylan McDermott, Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto, anyone?) confused me, and frightened me.
This cover is from this weeks Entertainment Weekly and I may never be able to look at Jessica Lange in the same way again!
What you saw in the [season one] finale was the end of the Harmon house. The second season of the show will be a brand-new home or building to haunt. Just like this year, every season of this show will have a beginning, middle and end. [The second season] won't be in L.A. It will obviously be in America, but in a completely different locale."
American Horror Story: Asylum Premiers October 17, 2012.
