American Horror Story

For this 2011 Fall television season, "American Horror Story" is without a doubt my favorite. The show, which airs on FX channel, is darkly written and full of twist and turns, good acting (especially Jessica Lange and Frances Conroy, but everyone is doing a great job really) and a unique look.

The story, based around a family living in a haunted house, is a platform for many devilish plots about the house and its inhabitant. I think I relate mostly to the idea of being confined to a place, no matter how horrifying it may be, without the ability to leave. That is basically the story of the characters in the show, that because of past debts are constrained to a place, whether its physically or mentally (or both). Sad, but this is an idea I can relate to.
