I've been catching up on past seasons of FX's series American Horror Story, and I must say, I'm actually enjoying it. I'm at the end of season 1, and while it starts to get a bit too manic for me during the last 2 or 3 episodes, as so much seems to happen in those final episodes, I can say that I dug season 1, and will now begin season 2. Although I'll wait about a week before doing that, so I don't overload myself with the series and become too full.Expectations are even higher for the upcoming new season 3 of American Horror Story (which will be titled American Horror Story: Coven) thanks in part to the additions of Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe to the cast.Also veteran stage star Patti LuPone has hopped along for the ride from series creator Shawn Ryan.
