  1. It took me a while to start watching the first season of “American Horror Story,” but now I’m hooked. I can not wait for the new season to begin. Unfortunately, I will miss the first episode because of my work schedule at DISH. I did set my Hopper to record the season premiere, and since there is a ton of DVR recording space I’m going to record the rest of the season. I have a feeling this season is going to surpass the first season with the scares.
