Although I didn’t really care for the format of this season on American Horror Story, or the style of the final few episodes, there is some tense atmosphere and the performances at least weren’t bad, with Sarah Paulson being the highlight.
Well, it’s that time of year. A time to be with family. A time to run up those dang credit card bills. Every year I tell myself I’ll limit my spending on “me” items but these studios just have to release something that challenges my resolve (i.e. Fox’s “X-Files” series set on Blu-ray). I’ve compiled a listing of some holiday gift ideas from the inexpensive to the slightly expensive, gifts the entire family can enjoy without breaking the wallet… or whatever they say on channels like QVC or HSN.
“American Horror Story: Asylum”: The Complete Second Season is another triumph for FX and although on the whole I liked the first season better, this one has a lot to offer including some excellent performances headlined by Zachary Quinto and Jessica Lange amongst others. The Blu-ray released by Fox has solid audio/video transfers while the bonus material is OK, but lacking.
