Quote:
“Bates Motel,” serves as a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film, “Psycho,” and promises to give viewers an intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates’ psyche unravels through his teenage years.

Fans will have access to the dark, twisted backstory and learn first hand just how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma, truly is and how she helped forge the most famous serial killer of them all.


Did anyone catch the premiere? Thought it was mildly entertaining, curious to see more.

Kind of looks like it. Max Thieriot is in it too, so I'm going to keep watching for that reason alone.

I was actually really anticipating this. It was pretty good, I enjoyed it, interested enough that I'll check out a few more episodes at least. The scene with the cop in the bathroom was awesome haha. What gets me is the whole continuity thing.. The fact that it's a prelude to a 1960 film, yet takes place in modern times. That and some of the dialogue really beats you over the head with the whole "We're gonna be together forever" thing between Norma and Norman. All in all, excited to see where this goes.

I was thinking the same thing as I watched the second episode last night. It's kinda like the show Smallville in that aspect, how they took the backstory of something already set in the present / past and made it take place in the present. It's pretty good so far. I'm gonna keep watching.

And I wish Nutter Butters were Oreo shaped, but we can't all get what we want.

Having a functional Search function is even harder apparently.

Go to Entertainment Forum<Search This Forum<"bates motel" = No results...yet there is my thread, and this one, tell me how that works exactly.

I haven't used the search function in ages. It's notoriously bad.

Just google 'whatever you want absolutepunk,' it's much more efficient. What I did in this case, because I knew Alison made a thread a few days ago.

Weird, the overall Search that's in the main menu bar pulls up my locked thread and not this one.

But yea, alright, either way I enjoyed the show after my gf forced me to watch it. I fell asleep during the first episode.

I'm enjoying it so far. A bit forced dialogue wise at moments, but still enjoyable.
