The current season of American Horror Story: Asylum wrapped up on Wednesday, Jan. 23rd with the episode “Madness Ends.”
It was quite a riveting episode. You’ll find lots of recaps of it online if you Google it (try IMDb or HitFix); but that’s not what we’re doing here. This is more to let you know that even if you didn’t watch the show for the entire season, you’ll still get a lot out of the last episode, as it’s almost a recap in itself of much of the season and many of the characters.
Under the creative genius of Ryan Murphy, writer, producer and creator of Nip/Tuck, the final episode was a masterpiece of direction, acting and writing in the horror genre. Well worth your time if you’re look for something a little spooky to watch.
Among the ways to view it is the On Demand function of your cable system, if you have that. Check the F/X Network web site or IMDb, which usually provides links to individual episodes that are available for viewing or purchase. I’m sure there are other ways to see it on the internet. Hulu, maybe?
One disclaimer: Asylum doesn’t really fit in with what we cover on this blog. It’s not really about paranormal stuff, but it’s got a spooky atmosphere and is very well done and entertaining – as I said, almost a masterpiece of its kind.
