American Horror Story Season 2 - Asylum
★ ★ ★ - Okay
This show is great for binge watching because it packs so much into a breathlessly-paced Season. This one has an exorcism scene in Episode 1. What would be a climax for many is just a set-up for one of the more exciting long-term stories. This is supported by the expansive cast, which is packed with way more star power than I expected. It initially surprised me to learn Jessica Lange was doing a television series, but the cast is all at that level, from James Cromwell to Chloë Sevigny. Most impressive is Zachary Quinto, a carry-over from Season 1. His movie career may only be Star Trek, but he's full of tricks. The series is possibly over-stuffed with too many ideas, but how rare to watch 13 X 40-minutes and not think this is taking too long.
