    airs tonight (Mon.) on A&E at 10pm (eastern)
    perfect timing, right after Being Human. (hehe)

    Looks well produced and sufficiently creepy.

    Will you be watching?

    I'd like to. Psycho is easily one of my favourite films. I really like Freddie Highmore and I like Vera Farmiga.

    Looking forward to it.

    I will wait and see on this one. I don't see how this could last long.

    I liked it. The chemistry between the actors was very good. I was pleasantly surprised to see Mike Vogel in this (sexy!).
    Thankfully, this being on a cable channel, the rape\murder scene was allowed some decent production value.

    Not sure about this. I missed it, so I don't know about the quality of the ****** Just that I'm not sure I want to know more about Norman Bates. I think Robert Bloch did enough in Norman with his books. I just don't want to see happen to him what happened to Hannibal Lecter (Granted Robert Bloch is deceased and has no part in this new show) where Thomas Harris contradicted himself over the course of the later books and revealing too much about his character to the point that he became too sympathetic. Less is more.
    I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.

    Any, I watched the first 30 minutes and found it was interesting. Everything seemed to flow and the actors were watchable. I didn't feel glued to my screen & I'll probably watch the rest of the pilot when it re-airs, but it was a decent enough show to watch. I always root for darker/suspenseful/horror themed shows to do well, so hopefully it'll gain an audience.

    Yeah I was kinda surprised as well, Norman Bates with a smart phone...aahahahha!
    But then it is a re-imagining of the whole franchise. Like how JJ Abrams rebooted Star Trek.

    It would have been really cool to keep its proper time period as I love historical fiction and the stylistic design of the 1930s-1940s was awesome as far as cars, clothes and architecture go.

    I like it. Good acting. Vera is good in everything. The guy playing Norman has a good read on the character. Interesting watching the development of Norman Bates.

    Spooky, intriguing side story developing in second episode with his brother moving in and that book he found.

    Well won't we all be damned. Bates Motel has already been renewed for a second season, after only 3 episodes.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/liv...s-motel-434760

    From Universal Television, the Psycho prequel ranks as A&E's most-watched scripted drama in network history among adults 18-49 and 25-54. The series premiere drew 4.5 million total viewers and 2.5 million in both 18-49 and 25-54 when factoring in Live+7 figures. The series held up well in its second airing, jumping 6 percent among the 25-54 set against increased competition in its Mondays at 10 p.m. slot.

    ^ Interesting.

    I watched the pilot last week and found it kind of boring, but it was really atmospheric and I was a bit intrigued by that aspect of it.

    The rape scene annoyed me, and turned me off of it, tho. It seemed kind of eroticized. I'm just sick of the cliche of having a "strong, independent" female character introduced to audiences and then having her be "cut down to size" via random rape scene at some point in the narrative. It's all very suspect.

    Also, I'm not sure I can handle the ongoing "hints of incest" or whatever. Nope.

    I liked the pilot, but I admit it was a bit slow. It does pick up a lot after, though.

    Bates Motel


    "A modern re-imagining and prequel to the movie Psycho (1960). This story begins with the earlier years of a teenage Norman Bates and his mother Norma who live in an old house overlooking the adjoining motel which they are renovating. The house and hotel both come with secrets of their own as does the new town which the Bates' now call home."
    I honestly did not like the idea of a modern Norman Bates but I decided to give it a chance anyway and it turns out its quite good. Anyone else watching it?

    And no that's not Felicity Huffman starring in it.

    I have to admit I did not like the idea of it happening in modern times and it still bothers me at times (like when you see him with a smart phone) but other than that I quite enjoy it.

    Good actors, good chemistry, good storyline, two hot male actors...

    Maybe a bit slow at times but we also have those moments with other "horror" shows like Dexter and AHS. And yes it does pick up with time.

    I was so distracted when watching the pilot trying to figure out if Norma was played by Felicity Huffman or someone else. Turns out it it's not her.



    P.s. I have a fantasy about Deputy Zack taking advantage of Dylan. Hot!

    I had the same feeling you did when it started but I've been very impressed so far. The program is well done for what it is and the performances are excellent. Freddie Highmore is superb (and cute!) and I love Vera Famiga. She is brilliant as the mother. I just hope they can keep the visual quality and storylines going. Only 10 episodes were originally contracted but the ratings are taking off, the reviews are excellent and A&E contracted for a second season of 10 additional episodes for next year. I'd say it is a hit.

    ^Language barrier....
    "plug" in this instance is not referring to hair transplants, it was my way of bumping the thread and to advertise how sexy those two dudes are. Like how an actor may "plug" (advertise, mention, etc.) an upcoming film during an interview.

    I'm loving the cast on this show and Freddy Highmore is spot on with his portrayal of Norman. I can see this show continuing for several more seasons.

    Loving the deliciously evil, incestuous nuance.

    I'm sad that Shelby's gone...so hot. But his character was a creeper. I didn't like Dylan in the beginning nor did I think he was all that hot, but that's taken a complete 180!

    In the last episode, we got a first glimpse of Norman internalizing the mentality of his mother (besides the hallucination). Can't wait for the next episode

    Re: New Series-The Bates Motel

    ^loved the dream sequence between Norman and Bradley. I felt it was intentionally shot the way it was to make the audience first think for a split second that it was him and his mother in bed together before they finally show Bradley's face. Brilliant camera work and directing.

    ^There was a hint of a bromance just starting to develop between Dylan and Ethan. Then Ethan was killed. A shame really, good actor, his character had promise.

    Norman's new part time job will surely help him become a healthy individual

    Very well acted but of course we know where this all leads to. Norma just is too much for Norman, his brother is unsucessful in freeing Norman from his mom's overbearing influence, and his innate instability devolves into psychotic madness.It's sad, but we already see the troubling signs in Norman's activities...his sudden capacity for shocking violence but it's like he's compartmentalized.... he didn't realize what he did to his dad and isn't outright a sociopath as he does seem to feel emotion, very upset to learn what happened to his father though Norma made certain he didn't know it was himself who was responsible. Norman will be massively let down and crumble eventually so it's just not the kind of show I'd follow. Now if it were a re-imagining to paths Norman can take...either towards or away from certain horror, if their were some uncertainty to the final result, then I could watch but the show is intended as a explanatoery prequel of how Norman became "psycho",lol...so I'll pass.
