I never cared about Bradley or her dead dad until that scene. Still, I know eventually she's gonna be gutted like a fish. Come on, now, she's a blonde. They're gonna ice her in a way that'll give Hitchcock's ghost a boner.

I got a good laugh out of the talk between Romero and Norma. Awkward as hell.

Same here. Norma is one of my favorite characters on television. All her adorable quirks, and I love every moment she spends interacting with the sheriff. Her town hall meeting moment was classic.

Also, on Bradley. Bradley is quite hot, but for the life of me I don't know how she is suppose to be more attractive, conventional or otherwise, then Emma. Peltz is not a very good actress, and Bradley comes off as dull as dish water, especially in comparison.

I am expecting the twist to be that he did kill her. Granted it isn't his "method" but so many attempts to twist the story usually means they are trying to throw us off Norman.

What I love about Norma is she is as impulsive and defensive as Norman, and when she lashes out, she does so in the most uncomfortable yet adorable ways.


Also, talking about uncomfortable, Norman crying at the funeral. Holy crap.

That would have probably been less embarrassing. It wouldn't have gone on for so long.

Vera killed it in that town hall scene! That was hilarious.

Bradley's arc is boring me so far. I feel like they don't know what to do with her character.

This is a strongly written show. They're not afraid to snip characters when their time is done instead of keeping them around. Kind of a grim yet happy ending for Bradley.

I love that even taking place in a modern setting, the Bates' house has retro sets and the wardrobe Norma and Norman have are so old school it helps connect it to the Hitchcock movie.

I laugh at the character who got arrested by the Sheriff because that same actor last year played the same exact role on The Killing.

despite the fact that Norma is a bit off her axis at times and a silly pain in the ass, it was kinda nice seeing SOMETHING working out for her, for once... she really seemed happy after her audition with everyone applauding her... it was a pleasant change seeing Norma this way...

I enjoy the awkward Norman/Norma scenes since we all know how that turns out, and the foreshadowing. This is probably my favorite tv series on right now aside from Face-Off.

They do such a great job wit those characters that I forgot they're grooming the male lead to be a psychopath.

I thought this past week's episode was pretty great. Love Cody, and even thought the twist was obvious, it still worked for me.

You mean this last Monday? Yes it was new. The new episodes now air at 10PM. This is because they pulled "Those Who Kill".

Caught up on the past three episodes. Saw the Dylan/Caleb thing coming from the moment the actor was cast, but loved it nonetheless. Everything has been great. Except for Norman somehow being oblivious to Emma's presence. It's like... come on, kid.

Looks like I missed it. My DVR didn't record it for some reason. Weird.
