Seeing how Halloween is only a few days away, it was only appropriate that AHS did a Halloween episode … or more than one for that matter. A LOT went on during this episode so fair warning, this post is going to be a little extensive. Every new episode I watch, I get more and more confused. I really hope I’m not the only one. They spit out so much information and new people every episode that it messes with my mind more than the show already has. For example, the show kicks off with a gay couple living in the house in 2010. Is that supposed to be before or after Vivien, Ben, and Violet live there? The guys, Chad and Pat, are being festive and carving pumpkins. They happen to be in a fight too. They want to try to “flip the house” for Halloween so someone will actually want to buy it. The black demon guy comes into the house and Chad believes it’s Pat trying to be cute and dress up … just as though Vivien thought it was Ben and ended up getting pregnant with a demon baby. This guy is tricky. Anyway, he beats Chad up and it looks as though he drowns him. I’m not positive though because I looked away from the TV …

This past week I have been waiting for American Horror Story, as always! For some reason though I really found myself dozing off and getting distracted easily from the show. Maybe it was because there was not nearly as much screaming or violence as last episode, or maybe because the show is already starting to get boring. I hope it’s option one.
After last weeks pilot, I honestly did not know what to expect for this week’s episode. I figured some more secrets would be spilled and someone would die. I mean, that’s basically all that can happen from now on. The episode, once again, starts off with a flashback to 1968. A strange man comes to the door and asks to come in because he is “hurt”. The girl, being dumb, lets him in. Sure enough he begins to attack. He first kills off the house nurse by drowning her in the bathtub. Lovely. He proceeds to force the girl who let him in to change into a nurse outfit. Weird nurse fetish? I think so. He ends up stabbing the girl to death.
Fast forward back to today. Ben gets a phone call from a woman claiming she is pregnant. Obviously it is the 20 something year old he had an affair with. She’s not the only one who is pregnant though. As I predicted, Vivien is pregnant too. Ben thinks it’s his kid. I think not. It’s definitely that weird demon’s who Vivien had sex with last episode. She can even feel that “something is wrong with the baby”. Ben decides to fly out to Boston later in the episode to be with the affair girl while she gets an abortion. Of course, as a man would, he lies to Vivien. He says he needs to help an old patient who tried to commit suicide.
When I first joined the bloggers of Off-Color TV, I immediately asked to cover American Horror Story. Not only because Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, is part of it, but I had seen a few commercial previews and could tell that it would be a show like no other. That’s exactly what it is. It’s not just another show about struggling teenagers, dramatic doctors, or crazy reality TV stars. It’s probably one of the most sick, twisted shows I have ever seen on TV before. Every single person seems like they are completely out of their minds and insane. I would like to say that it really is a show for adults. No thirteen or fourteen year olds should be watching this! There is honestly so much that went on in this first episode that I fear (pun) that I can’t cover it all! I will try to sum it up as best I can.
