American Horror Story opens the Asylum doors in tonight’s Season 2 premiere. The second chapter may lack continuance from the first season (each season runs a standalone narrative with the cast playing new characters), but in an age of increasingly diversifying serial it will be interesting to see how successfully the serial-anthology approach serves the show this year.
If last season was centered on adultery, Season 2 will explore the question of sanity, and as new cast member Joseph Fiennes warns TV Guide, the lines will be blurred:
“The scariest thing is knowing that those who are incarcerated may be more sane than the people running it.”
