American Horror Story – Asylum Oct. 17

Head on over to American Horror Story‘s official Facebook page for a five-minute look at the first episode airing on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

Of course everyone knows by now that Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan-Tatum (The Lovers) get caught up in this season’s AHS by exploring the 12 most haunted places in the country, bringing them to the very door of Briarcliff Asylum (oops).

In a recent interview with Ellen, Adam Levine said he’s really not a big fan of “scary” things and hadn’t even seen the first season of AHS when he had agreed to do Asylum.

Go now and check out the first five minutes on the AHS Facebook page.

Also, make sure your DVR is set up correctly. Make sure you have it set to record “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

American Horror Story

AHS – Asylum, Season 2 premieres Wednesday, October 17 at 10pm (Eastern).

In the meantime I’ve noticed that my DVR has been recording Season 1 episodes that I missed. I’m certainly not complaining. I had originally recorded them on my regular DVR and when I decided to watch them I was greeted with glitches, skips and entire sections skipped over.

I could have just blamed it on the “ghosts” but unfortunately that wasn’t the problem … or the solution. I instead set-up my HD DVR to record the episodes and sat down on a Sunday to watch 8 of them in a row.

There are two that I missed: Murder House (Episode 3) and Halloween, Part 1 (Episode 4).

That’s the real beauty of DVRs. You have nothing better to do on a Sunday, it’s cold and rainy, you pop some popcorn and sit down with your DVR remote in hand and zoom through the commercials and get completely caught up on a series in less than 6 hours.

FXnetworks.com also has a great website promoting the new season and lots of fun things for Season 1 including a witchy family portrait game and an opportunity to Explore the House from Season 1.

AHS Season 1 is nominated for 17 Emmy Awards including Outstanding Movie or a Miniseries.

What fun the FX American Horror Story Season 1 web site is. I wish I would have gone there before viewing the episodes. If you haven’t viewed any of Season 1, go to the FX web site and partake in the interactive “exercises.”

Then get ready to record Season 2 premiering Wednesday October 17.

Jessica Lange returns in a lead role with other original cast members including Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson. Adam Levine, James Cromwell, Chloë Sevigny, Joseph Fiennes, Clea Duvall and Jenna Dewan-Tatum are new this season.
