Genre television has done little to excite me in recent years. There's a couple of shows on the premium channels, such as True Blood and Dexter, but when it comes to your basic cable there isn't much. The Walking Dead had an excellent first season, now with the Darabont debacle we can only guess how the second season will play out. And quite honestly Teen Wolf has done nothing for me. Maybe Death Valley, which premieres August 29th, will be decent though.
What we are getting though is American Horror Story, debuting Oct 5th on FX, which from what I have seen from the numerous clips and teasers looks like it could be half-decent. I'm not quite sure that sticking it on a Wednesday night is such a rocking idea, but it might break the week up nicely and FX have aired some good shows of late, such as Sons of Anarchy and Justified. Anyway, check out the teaser and other assorted clips and make your own minds up. Until October then...
