  • One of the best shows ever since the Lost!!

    The show is simply put, perfect! Not only because it has this solid foundation of a great story based on a novel but also because the cast, the acting, directing, the town, costumes and the music (hell yeah) pretty much everything about the show is near perfect. A totally irreplaceable show. I cannot believe show rating is 8.7 though. Should've been at least 9.1. Which tells me I should never judge a show's quality by rating. Though I used to.moreless
  • Oh yea.

    L O V E this show. It sticks pretty close to what the movie established. Then digs into it. This show is GREAT. Love the kick ass sheriff.
  • oh man!

    This show is the bomb!! I am loving it! each time, leaves me wanting more! I am tired of the teasing as far as Norma and Romero and Dylan and Emma!! there soooo close to being more than "friends"and super cute! I like Norma! shes one of my favorite characters and I hate Norman but I suppose the show wouldn't be much fun with out him.
  • The real psycho

    I believe this show has the potential to last years, however, when the show comes to an end; being the psycho fan I am, It would be awesome to show Romero and Norma as lovers: Basically, Norman and Norma lose Emma from her illness, Dylan loses his life through the business, and Norman turns to Norma for what he needs, However, as much as she loves him, Romero has become the shoulder she needs in that moment, and like in the original psycho movies; she and her "lover" are killed by her Norman and it will show him opening the motel as .......moreless
  • the N-square factor of the Bates' equation...

    The chemistry between Farmiga and Highmore is unbelievable! Farmiga is the ideal Norma to the Norman we met in Simply memorable performances on a strong script!


    One of the few shows that without hesitation and beyond the shadow of a doubt can call itself a prequel!

    A show that, episode by episode, builds a realistic story to a unique end, the creation of Norman Bates - as main character in Bloch's novel Farmiga and Highmore with stellar performances elevate the story on every sarcastic comment they make, every fake smile they share and every desperate measure they take to protect each other.

    It's an extraordinary show that tears down our impression that Norman Bates was always a psychopath and gives a convincing answer on why he was never properly socialized, on how he developed an abnormal relationship with his mother and how he eventually developed the Oedipus complex.

    It's a great psychological thriller!moreless
