I don't think this season was bad , but it really wasn't good! It's all over the place . I liked certain elements , bloody face was interesting but the whole Nazi doctor character throws the show waaaay off.

Really sucked, I loved Murder House, the first one, second one is about mindless horror and gore, , why would any one person want to watch that, ?

How did I wait until now to watch this. It had just about every subject you can think of except 'Nam. The last episode is 42 mins of the best TV ever produce. No idea why Peters, Rabe, Chloe and many others didn't get library links on the description. No spoilers from me!

The best of the lot so far, including the recently completed "Coven", this series has it all and then some! Touching all of the elements and usual plot developments in the horror genre with spine-chilling, uneasifying results. Everyone/thing is here: Conniving priests, callous nunnery, nazi doctors, overly ambitious reporters, little green men from outer space and much, much more, including an ending you will not see coming, at least I didn't. Top notch performances by everyone and a dance production of Shirley Ellis' "The Name Game" which will blow your mind!

After watching the first season, the second was great. Now that I have seen the third season the second season, in my opinion, was the best. I am looking forward to the fourth season. One fact is true for the series the effects are great!!

I got hooked on this show watching "The Coven" this year, so I went back to watch the first two seasons, loved them both, the first one "The Ghost House" was great, the "Asylum" was super creepy and super gory, Zachary Quinto was awesome!!!! he was perfect in season 1 as the gay guy, and is perfection as the psycho doctor in this season, like one person said, loved the "Name Game" dance sequence, it was amazing!! this show will blow you away. from the creators of my all time favorite show "Nip/Tuck" these guys know how to make a show that pushes the limits.

This season is even better. While the first season, subtitled GHOST HOUSE, was a story on a more personal level, ASYLUM seems more grand scale, going over a number of years and dealing with a killer of women named Bloody Face. However, that segment is only half the story, as those running the Briarcliff home for the criminally insane may be as crazy (if not crazier) as the patients there. I don't dare tell you a thing; the story is simply too perfectly crafted to spoil. As for the horror elements, the show is definitely creepy, but it's not the bump-in-the-night jump-scare variety that has become oh-so-popular with films like PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. No, it's Hitchcock scary, where the story is terrying enough that you don't have to resort to cheap tactics. That being said, most of the show isn't spent trying to scare you; it's simply telling the story. Needless to say, I loved this season, and I would highly recommend it -- for anyone who can handle it.

How shall I describe this season?! Quite morbid. Pushes limits and there are very many unexpected turns story linewise. It'll definitely keeps you at the edge of your feet if not at least one sleepless night's had.
