“American Horror Story” Stick Figure Recap: Welcome to Briarcliff

The second season of American Horror Story debuted last night and we’re already hooked. It’s  set in an asylum with new characters (Chloe Sevigny as a nympho!), new actors (Adam Levine!) and some returning cast members (Jessica Lange!). There’s still a glorious amount of gore and nudity but it’s even scarier than Season One—you can’t just move into an apartment when you’re strapped down in a mental ward. We’re recapping it in a way that doesn’t spoil the visual spectacle: stick figures!

    I don’t know why, but stick figures make everything better!

    I hate gore, but I love Vikki Hiller, so I’m torn. If only they’d cast Drew Droege instead of Chloe Sevigny, that would’ve made the show a must-watch.

    @Eric Auerbach: And by Vikki Hiller I mean Sarah Paulson!

    First of all, I love the stick figure recap of AHS. Not only did it make me laugh but it also told the story very well. You should do all of the episodes this way. Season two of this show is off to a big start and I’ve already got my Hopper timer set to record the show each week. The one thing that struck me as a little strange in this first episode is Sister Jude’s infatuation with her Monsignor. The lengths that the show goes to, to make this apparent is very strange but also very much in line with AHS as a show. My DISH co-worker thought it was a little weird to have some of last season’s characters back on the show as different people. I don’t have any issues with that at all. I really like Jessica Lange and Evan Tate.
