Bates Motel takes place many years before the events of 1960's Psycho, exploring the early teenage years of Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore), who lives with his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) before ultimately sliding into madness. The first episode of the show picks up as Norman loses his father, moving to another town where his mother has purchased an old house and a motel. It observes Norman and hi... read more

This show far exceeded my expectations. It didn't go the slavish remake/homage route, nor the adaptation route but combined both elements to create something wholly its own and, simultaneously, warmly familiar.

I'll admit i was a bit puzzled by the beginning structure but it all served a purpose. The first two seasons give us an insight into the world and mind or Norman and his mother... read more
View all Bates Motel reviews
A modern re-imagining and prequel to the movie Psycho (1960). This story begins with the earlier years of a teenage Norman Bates and his mother Norma, who live in an old house overlooking the adjoining motel which they are renovating. The house and hotel both come with secrets of their own as does the new town which the Bates' now call home.

“This show far exceeded my expectations. It didn't go the slavish remake/homage route, nor the adaptation route but combined both elements to create something wholly its own and, simultaneously, warmly familiar.

I'll admit i was a bit puzzled by the beginning structure but it all served a purpose. The first two seasons give us an insight into the world and mind or Norman and his mother that sets up an excellent psychological basis for the madness that comes. This results in a payoff that is well earned rather than cheaply copied.

Vera Farmiga as Norman's mother is absolutely wonderful. I'm glad they handled her with care and nuance. Instead of a cartoon character of smotherlove, we get a strong-willed, caring, and loving mother who's heavy handed approach is soundly base” read more

" Viewed: Season 1 After giving up on Bates Motel back in 2013, when I only watched a couple of episodes, I have decided to return and give it another crack. The first season of the show is a promising one, with compelling stories and fine characters all-around, turning into more than "just a Psycho prequel." Both Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore are terrific, with the latter really showing that he has grown from a boy into a man, and pulling off the Norman Bates look with ease. I'll definitely "

20 Shows Inspired By Twin Peaks (23 tv items)

"It's not just the Pacific Northwest setting or the vision of parents and teenagers with murderous intent that ties this underrated prequel-ish riff on Psycho with its small-screen ancestor. Just as Peaks took viewers to the other side of the tracks, Bates Motel tapped into that undercurrent of criminal behavior lurking behind the postcard-beautiful pine trees. It also shares the wonderfully anachronistic DNA of the Lynch/Frost show – characters who seem not just born in the wrong era but flu"
