    American Horror Story: Asylum "The Origins of Monstrosity" Review: Holla Backstory (PHOTO RECAP)

    An hourlong breather of an episode, this week was more about explaining motives than moving the story forward.

      Unlike season 1, I've felt that season 2 has taken longer to piece together. Only now, within this episode, do I feel like we're starting to really, truly understand the characters and decide how we feel about them. The gears are turning and the machine feels fully in motion now. This is definitely my favorite episode so far. Pure genius, this one was.

      Fantastic episode, absolutely loved it, how the writers come up with these sick & twisted storylines is sheer genius. I applaud the writers of this show for giving us pure horror & being even creepier than the last season. There was a scene where i started to be sick, if a show can do that to me, well it served it purpose. Just Outstanding.
