Asylum, which is mostly set in the 1960s, seized the present zeitgeist and skinned it alive in order to use it as a lamp to shed light on our society’s perverted mind and hungry need for diversion. Asylum was favorably welcomed by television reviewers, much like its predecessor. Particularly noteworthy appreciation was given to the roles of Lange, Quinto, romwell, Paulson, Peters, and Rabe.

Since Jessica Lange’s character runs a mad hospital that was originally a TB ward, Murphy chose the series title “Asylum” because it not only defines the site but also represents a shelter for the unwanted and unloved.
