I dont care much for The Following anymore right now the only new ''killer'' shows that held my interest is Hannibal and Bates Motel.

I just don't know what to make of Cult... just seems like a mind**** of a show within a show, though it HAS gotten interesting as of last week...

I didn't see any new episodes last week, did A&E even air a new one? I'm old school in that I don't stream or download episodes online.

Is that even worth checking out? I've had the first three episodes for a while and just kinda forgot about it cuz honestly I didn't even know if it was still on. Seems like nobody is talking about it

I was interested and watched the premiere, but as soon as I saw that premiered to less than 1 million viewers, I really found no point continuing and it really wasn't awesome enough to get mad about.

eh, it's ok to kill time for an hour on a Friday night... it hasn't been that great, but as of last week, it REALLY started getting intriguing as to what's possibly going on... but I DO see it getting the cancel axe eventually...

it just figures, now that the story seems to be picking up some real interest for me...

So this series is like how

Superman Returns is to Donnor's Superman

while this is

Bate's Motel is to Hitchcock's Psycho

Except Superman Returns is a loose sequel to the older material, while Bate's Motel is a loose prequel.

I watched the first episode and lost interest. I hated that it was set in the present...and the fact that every single chick in town seemed to be desperate to have sex with Norman Bates just didn't feel right to me. I thought that it was silly how the mom was raped, and then within seconds, while the rapist was still dying on her floor, she had already moved past the violence committed against her and was focused on the cover up.

This is also a huge turnoff for me. There was no reason why it couldn't have been set before the 60s to really place it before Hitchcock's Psycho. I'm surprised this isn't a bigger issue with people.

But I guess it kinda adds relevance to the story and characters for modern times I guess d:

The thing that ticks me off the most about this is how much they shove the iPhone stuff in our faces.
Ok, we get it, it set in the present day, not before the time the original Psycho took place.
The iPhones are so prominently featured in every episode.
I don't think I've seen such a prominent presence of the iPhone in any form of media ever.

Is there a reason why Norman was having the flashes of his teacher lie in a gag before he passed out?

I just assumed that she was seasoned in this kind of behavior since I'm also going to assume that she whacked her husband.

I don't mind that it's been updated to present day, but I wish they would have kept the music from the original series since it's such a classic.

It's not really specifically the iPhones, the way they do it is just such an in your face way of saying, no no, this doesn't take place before Psycho like you expected, it's in the present day!

I'm sure people got the message after 4 episodes already.

My opinion, Norman doesn't become crazy in the show, he already is ( at an early stage ). He fantasizes on her after he had seen the gagged drawings in the book.

This, I think the book feeds his fantasies,the more he reads it the worse he gets.

The problem with the iPhones is that, I think that all of us are interested in what happened to Norman Bates before the first Psycho film. That character is very interesting, so we want to know his back story. This is NOT that back story of the character from Hitchcock's Psycho. This series is in no way related to the reality in that classic movie or the characters in it. The young man in this show WILL NOT kill Marion Crane, at least not the same character from the movie, because that woman was already killed decades ago. The iPhones are a constant reminder that what we are watching is not what we wanted to watch and is NOT a prequel to a movie we love.

It's a reboot prequel.

And I have no reason at all to care about a character I have never met. Had they called this The Jones Hotel, no one would have watched it...so they sucked people in by promising the origin of Psycho, but it's really the origin of some new character with the same name.

I love the dynamic between Dylan and Norman, I'm going to be heartbroken if they ever kill Dylan off.
