I also got spoiled on a main character death by Googling the show. :( Not from clicking through anything, but in the actual subject title in the search results. Boo. The show is pretty interesting overall, even though I don't particularly like any of the characters. The mythology has a lot of elements that appeal to me: mystical powers that pass through hereditary lines, mysterious catastrophic historical events, demonic possession. I wonder what happens to the circle now, though.
Enjoyed the second episode of American Horror Story, although I missed the little disjoint images they'd insert quickly in scenes, like Tate saying "helter skelter". The opening credits are awesome, very Nine Inch Nails-like.
