    Jessica Lange WON! my favorite! People! if you have the time… and want mystery, intrigue, and scare the crap out of you…. you’d watch on FX – American Horror Story… it starts Octover 17? so well written, crafted, and filmed…. this new season… includes Chloe Sevginy… amazing actress from big love.
