Default Re: Psycho prequel series "Bates Motel"

I'm currently unable to watch this show due to my not having cable TV. I am somewhat curious to see what it's like. Reading through this thread, it seems like it's pretty good so far. However I'm a little leary of it being set in modern times rather than the 40's/50's in order to tie it in with the original movie. I'm guessing the cost of acquiring vintage cars/clothing from that era would've been too expensive.

I'll hazard a guess and say that the series finale of the show will be a made for TV modernized remake of Psycho, with Norman killing Marion Crane.

Out of curiousity, has anyone here seen Psycho IV, where Norman Bates is telling his life story on a radio talk show? I believe that was Anthony Perkins' last role before passing away from AIDS.

Incidentally, there was a made for TV movie called The Bates Motel, where Norman Bates had died and left his family home and motel to a fellow patient. I think a greedy land developer was trying to convince him he was going insane, or that the house was haunted, by dressing up as Mrs Bates and creeping around the house or something. Then there was this weird side story of a woman renting a room at the motel in order to commit suicide. Then a bunch of high school kids rented out the rest of the rooms for a grad party. In the end they turned out to be the ghosts of suicide victims who have come to convince the woman not to take her own life. Kind of an odd installment of the Psycho franchise.

the town of White Pine Bay is whacked...

and what's funny is that the LEAST bit of whacked out of all this are the fields of pot deep in the woods being patrolled by armed guards...

GREAT place for a potential killer like Norman to grow up in...

The weirdest thing so far (though not the creepiest) was those high school girls. When they just showed up, and literally picked up Norman, I thought that was supposed to be Norman having a fantasy sequence. That was just odd. And then they pick him up to go to a party with them.
You're not the only one. It was almost like Twilight the way girls just flocked to him upon arrival.


I like Emma, I hope nothing too bad happens to her.

I assumed they were going to do something terrible. Guess in this universe high school girls are just really into awkward nerdy new kids.

See, for me, that was the first sign of, "no way would that happen". Girls don't act that way towards nerds. Never. They don't like nerds.

What you never had a group of girls you barely know show up at your house to take you to a party?

Maybe it's an Oregon thing.

maybe it'll be revealed in time that the girls are just another part of the creepy goings-on with their own agenda and they've found Norman to be their next target or possible victim?...

hey, we ARE talking about Looneytown here...

who knows WHAT'S going on in this town and how many inmates are running loose in this White Pine Bay asylum...

It's a small town, White Pine Bay is, right? Small towns have the craziest things going on.

Well this is just a review for the first 2 episodes. As it is stated in the review, there is a lot of potential, and everything can change by the season finale.

maybe Sheriff Nestor might be the ONLY bit of sanity in an asylum-town of looneytunes...

kinda like the keeper trying to maintain SOME sense of control in the nuthouse and TRYING to do the best that he can, but the inmates are running loose and wild...

lol, ''whats your life expectency'' the hell


Anyway anyone else think that the book Norman found is slowly causing his ''mental breakdown'' or however you want to call it. It seems he is becoming more and more obsessed with the pictures.


Also whats up with the Asian guy in the strip club crying
