In 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind. On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred's stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.

Trivia

When Sarah Paulson heard Rosanna Arquette on the media talking about how after denouncing Harvey Weinstein she hadn't worked much in the industry, she contacted her to offer her a role. See more »

Goofs

During the entire first season, the location of Lucia seems to be inconsistent with the actual location in the real world. There are several mentions of driving "down" to Monterey, with shots of cars driving south along the coast, when Monterey is actually north of Lucia. Gwendolyn occasionally seems to travel relatively quickly from her job (and presumably home) in Sacramento to Lucia, despite the drive from one to the other being over 200 miles. See more »

All style and no substance
21 September 2020 | by be-janSee all my reviews

I don't quite know what to make of this. The production value is high, the settings and costumes impressive, and the acting mostly good, albeit with a tendency to being over the top. The story, however, is a mess. It's overly melodramatic and at the same time uninteresting. The interspersed scenes of violence have an alienating effect and do not fit in with the rest of the plot. The soundtrack (apparently recycled film music) that dominates almost every scene drowns the whole thing in pompous symphony. I for my part am not interested at all in Miss Ratched's further ongoings.
