There seems to be a horror trend in TV right now, what with True Blood, Walking Dead, Dexter, etc. being hits. I have not seen any of those programs since I am a bona fide scaredy pants. However, there is a new show starting this week I plan to check out, to see if I can take it.

American Horror Story airs Wednesday on FX, starring Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton (pictured above with, um, that girl, as their daughter). Premise is a couple in a shaky marriage move to LA for a fresh start, right into a haunted Victorian surrounded by strange neighbors.

It's from the creators of Glee, another show I've never watched, but is supposed to be authentic horror/suspense. The part that interests me? In spite of being part of a horror trend, it's supposed to be very different from the usual TV offerings, and after seeing its very intriguing preview, I'm willing to give it an episode.

I may not last five minutes, but I'm hoping its hyped blend of horror and humor will be heavy enough on the humor to keep me from peeing my pants a little.


  1. You'll have to let me know how it is. I read about it and heard very mixed reviews...the love it or hate it kind.

  2. Interesting. I'm not going to be able to watch it since I've reached my limit on new shows this season. Maybe if its good I'll catch it on netflix.

  3. I have heard nothing about this show, but I'll dvr it if you give it a thumbs up, Linda. :)
