I'm currently obsessed with this show. The 3rd episode just aired tonight and it's getting very intense. For those unaware, it's based on the life of Norman Bates, the main character from the novel & film Psycho, and starts when his mother purchases the motel.
I don't want to get too ahead of myself, but I can definitely see this being a perfect fit for the hole that Breaking Bad is going to leave when it wraps up this summer.
Has anybody else been watching it?
So this is the prequel to Bates Motel?
I watched the first episode and enjoyed it, haven't watched the other ones yet. But it seemed promising enough that I'll keep up with it.
Not sure if the season has 4 discs or just three but thats all i could get my hands on at the library at first i wasn't sure what to think about the show but it quickly started growing on me. The mom has the perfect amount of crazy and the actress (?) does a great job of expression within the context of her clear insanity. Norman has the right amount of weirdness as default as well. I don't want to offend but it kind of has a Twin Peaks vibe (from what i recall its been years since I've seen that show) in relation to just how odd the town and people in it really are. I will say i was kind of thrown by it being set in todays age but i guess thats sort of a trivial thing and quickly got over it.
Rihanna will be portraying Marion Crane in the final season.
