    Default Bates Motel Series

    I missed the premiere last night. The previews looked nice and I was wondering if anyone saw it. It is supposed to be a prequel the Psycho film.

    I watched but didn't pay real close attention to some of it, but it looks to be set in present time so I'm not seeing prequel. It was pretty good but too soon to tell how good

    I hope this is available on Hulu. I also missed it but wanted to watch it. The internet connection here is not fast enough to watch online, so I'll have to wait a couple of days until I get home.

    Finally got around to watching the first episode. I thought it was good, but I thought they would try to match the time period. Spoiler: Norman has an iPhone.

    I like the anachronisms, it gives it a cool mood in a Twin Peaks kind of way. I'm not usually one for these types of things but I love the original Psycho too much to not give this a shot. It's holding my interest but not yet knocking it out of the park. I'll have to see how it progresses.

    I just watched the first 2 episodes on demand. Awww it's the kid from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the woman who broke George Clooney's heart in that Up in the Air movie. But the creepiest part...is it just me, or does that sheriff look a LOT like Anthony Perkins?

    Anyway, it's definitely interesting enough to keep me watching for now. I guess you could call it a prequel, set in present time...or maybe just a series based on the characters of Psycho. Either way, I'm not looking for a "faithful" telling of the story. I do love that the motel and the house are faithful to the movie version though.

    We don't get cable, so I watched the first episode on Hulu and am watching the second one on A&E's website. I like it so far! I have seen the original Psycho, but it's been years and I don't remember it very well. The anachronisms and modern day setting don't bother me because I'm not really comparing it to the original.

    The mom is so weird... Norman seems sweet so it'll be interesting to see his transformation.

    i was planning on boycotting it because the commercials are so damn annoying - they play the same ones every break from my other shows! but since you guys like it, i might give it a try.
    can't post pics because my computer's broken and i'm stupid

    Watched about 20 minutes, then went to bed. Will have to watch the rest when I have time. So far I really like it.
