    From the producers of Lost and Friday Night Lights comes a modern day prequel to the iconic horror film Psycho.  After finding his father dead, teenager Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and his mother, Norma (Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga), purchase a motel and move to White Pine Bay in search of a new life, but they soon discover this idyllic seaside town hides some deadly secrets.  Unable to trust anyone but each other, the two indulge in a deeply twisted relationship that raises the question: does mother really know best?  Watch every episode back-to-back and uninterrupted of the murderously suspenseful drama that tells the story behind one of the most iconic characters in movie history.

    I'm kind of curious about some of the one star reviews here that rate it low based on the "violence and murder." What did these reviewers expect from show based on "Psycho?" A sweet tale about a boy and his mom? I mwan come on! These people should have known what they were getting themselves into right from the beginning. It's based on the most classic of classic horror films!

    Anyway.

    I'll admit, I was wary of this one when I saw the very first promo for it online. You don't mess with classics, and by all accounts, Hitchcock's "Psycho" is about as classic as it gets. Even more concerning was the apparent modernization of the tale. But the more I saw, the more intrigued I became. There was something about that creepy little smile of Freddie Highmore's that made me deeply curious.

    I have to say, the first episode hooked me. Highmore plays young Norman Bates and his quirks with a creepy subtlety that pays homage Anthony Perkins performance in the original. He's humble, naïve, polite and mild mannered yet you can see that budding psychotic fighting to come through pretty early on. It's in no way overdone, and Norman is completely unaware of this other self. Yet you can sympathize with the kid. He's socially awkward and sometimes blunt and inappropriate, but even then, you can't hate him. Maybe it's knowing what he becomes that makes it sympathetic, knowing that this smart (mostly) nice kid has such a fate in store for him. Maybe it's just Highmore's portrayal of him, or a little of both. Either way, his journey into psychosis is a nuanced slow burn rather than an outright explosion. You can see it building slowly alongside the building tension from episode to episode, a little at a time.

    Well after actually watching the first 3 episodes I can safely say that this is a truly creepy show :) The story seems good, the actors are almost perfect for their parts and Norman is slowly becoming the guy we all know and love (creepy!).

    I think this show is going to make it if the writers don't get cold feet and start making it politically correct and less violent since this is about a person who will become a murdering psycho (ignoring the fact it is set in the present day rather than in the past) so we EXPECT him to do evil things sooner or later and his Mom's level of affection is plain uncomfortable (I did not want to overuse the word creepy again but she makes my skin crawl a bit)

    This is MUCh more than a story about Norman getting older and stabbing a girl in the shower, this is a whole new series based on the premise of the motion picture but since it is set in the present day obviously it is not the same story exactly :) This is good storytelling.

    Enjoy the newest reimagining of a great story.

    UPDATE: Well just to repeat what another reviewer has said, this show really DOES get better with each episode, the first couple of episodes I thought were pretty good but by the end of episode 4 I was addicted and they keep getting better.

    I was born after Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" hit the theaters, so I missed all the hype and promotional gimmicks, such as "No one will be admitted to the theater after the film has begun" and "Don't give away the ending" and the dramatic and traumatic trailers. When I saw the film for the first time, I had no idea that Janet Leigh was a huge star and how it was a Hollywood no-no to kill off the major star during the first reel. However, I did know the big revelation at the end before I saw the picture.

    Still, the movie was spell-binding. The photography, the movement of the camera, the lighting, and especially the use of shadows gave the film a very creepy atmosphere of inescapable isolation. Combining that with subtle sound effects and a hair-raising score, the film became the perfect setting in which to tell a bone-chilling story using interesting characters. All that was needed was a great script and great actors to play the characters.

    Based on the novel by Robert Bloch who was inspired by Wisconsin murderer Ed Gain, the screenplay's adaptation went to Joseph Stefano, who later helped develop the "Outer Limits" series. Stefano fleshed out the characters as best he could given the rather limiting format of a script. Hitchcock, who directed the film, added even more dimension to each character by envisioning every nuance and manner each would possess.

    Hitchcock's casting was brilliant. He was very exacting and gave actors very little elbow room when it came to straying from his very precise direction. But his actors were strong enough and talented enough to allow their characters to come across as "real people," rather than as robots programmed to speak and move according to Hitchcock's instructions.

    Bates motel is promising I like it, it has a lot of suspense, I am already hook to it. The show focuses on the relationship between Norman Bates and his living mother, Norma. Norman is played by Freddie Highmore who starred in the 2005 movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," and Norma is played by Vera Farmiga,'Bates Motel,examines Norman Bates' upbringing and the events that will ultimately mold him into a cross-dressing murderer with dual personalities."
