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.

New York, NY- January 24, 2013 - A&E Network premieres season two of the critically acclaimed original drama series "Bates Motel," starring Vera Farmiga in her Emmy-nominated role as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as Norman. The series premieres Monday, March 3 at 9 PM ET/PT.

In season two of "Bates Motel," executive producers Carlton Cuse ("Lost") and Kerry Ehrin ("Friday Night Lights") dig deeper into the twisted world of the Bates family. Picking up from last season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson's death while Norma's mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother. Meanwhile, Norman's brother Dylan, (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father's killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her relationship with Norman as the duo explore new love interests, bringing new and old characters along for the ride.

Congratulations on seeing a great classic, may I ask what took you so long to finally watch it? :)

I remember the first time I saw it back in the mid 70's as a kid, it scared the life out of me :lol:

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


Enjoying AT 250 HBO,

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.

 
 
 
A&E Network premieres the season finale of the hit original series "Bates Motel” on Monday, May 5th at 10pm ET/PT immediately followed by the finale edition of “Bates Motel: After Hours,” at 11pm ET/PT hosted by Dave Holmes.
