    I had very low expectations for this series but it's crazy good. "Crazy" good. Get it? Heh.

    Seriously though, It's REALLY good. In fact, it's my favorite show on TV right now. :)

    It's good but IMHO not in the same league as shows like Justified (playing now), the Walking Dead (playing now), or Breaking Bad (on Hiatus). I need to give it more than two shows before I can even consider it as "keep worthy". :)

    To each his own. I don't watch Breaking Bad or Justified (though I regret the latter).

    I've been a fan of The Walking Dead comic since day one (2003). IMHO, the TV show pales by comparison. Every offhand shot is a head shot? The zombies skulls are as soft as Nerf balls? Again, IMHO, TWD is not really a great show. The comic is better by an order of magnitude. :grin:

    Though I do enjoy superhero type movies such as Ironman, I have not read a comic book since I was a small boy. I will have to take your word on it that the Walking Dead comics are better than the TV Series.

    But back on topic, I still need more than two episodes of Bates Motel to determine if it is worth setting up a series recording.

    FYI... if you ever get a chance, you may want to try to rent Breaking Bad. I also thought it would not be worth it. I was SO WRONG. Just a heads-up. Nothing good ever happens on that show.

    It's ok. I'm impressed the net lets them get away with such kinky and incestuous content. I think I'll stick with it awhile.

    I saw it in a drive-in by my house in 1969 with my parents.

    Psycho does highlight what a drive-in movie should be like.

    Vera and Freddie are just so awesome in this. They don't skimp on the creepiness factor of the incest either, they just stick it right out there. Has a terrific Twin Peaks vibe as well.

    Bumping this thread to mention that immediately following the season two finale on Monday, May 5th, 11PM ET/PT they will air a live 'Bates Motel: After Hours' special. Just a friendly reminder to set you DVR manually if interested as it won't be picked up from the main show Series Link. :) They did air one of these specials after the season two premiere episode as well.
