Bates Motel

Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema

  • Excerpt: In resetting the origins of Norman Bates to the present and taking some liberties, there’s innate drama here above simply looking for ties to Hitchcock’s film. What’s fascinating is that in watching the second season finale this past week, I know what’s coming in season three, but yet I don’t know what’s coming. This series has done the impossible: created a great dramatic arch to a story we know all too well.
