American Horror Story; Makes U Want More Cake; Like A Fat Couple On A Cruise.

Dylan MeDermott gets naked; and we likey.

Just when the new fall TV season seemed to deliver notable break out hits like, “Two Broke Girls.” And bombs that made you limp, like NBC’s recently cancelled “The Playboy Club.” comes FX to the rescue with an original idea with a typical story; conflicted couple moves into weirdly cheap house that has a bad history and weird neighbors, who never knock.

Most writers fail after crashing from their M&M highs in the writing room and tend to give their characters typical things to say; not so when it comes to the “Laverne & Shirley” of writing and directing, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk; both make American Horror Story freshly terrifying, if not odd, sexual, nasty and exciting. The first two episodes had me gasping after the first thirty minutes and wanting more like a Crack addict.

Jessica Lange steals every scene that she’s in with nasty zingers that would make Bette Davis in “All About Eve” blush. American Horror Story has everything a true fan of the macabre could thirst for; blood; creepy people; strange sex; an old maid, who looks young to the horny husband (Dylan McDermott); ghost twins; a leather suit; “Freddy Kruger” looking old tenant standing in the yard while you masturbate(!); oh, and a old/young girl with bad bangs; who keeps popping in on mom (Connie Britton) to let her know, ”You’re going to die in this house.”

In this age of, seen it all; done him/her all, that we live in; it’s nice to find a freaky show that has you guessing; and guessing what the funk will happen next.

American Horror Story airs Wednesday on FX @ 10: pm.
