American Horror Story Season 2: Asylum is ridiculous
5 second plot: The year is 1964, the location is an insane asylum run by the church. This season mixes the story of serial killers, a Nazi doctor, alien abductions, a possession, human flesh eating monsters, the angel of death herself and a lot of crazy folk into one (not very) coherent whole. Even Anne Frank gets to make an appearance.
5 second review: There is simply too much stuff in the mix here. There are some very cool and memorable scenes (the angel of death), but it's not more than that. The first 4 episodes are completely ridiculous and the last 3 are a boring stretch simply to get to the cool total of 13. Good performances from the cast, but the story is a very big mess.
IMDb score: 8,4/10
Our score: 4/10
