Wasn't expecting to like this series, couldn't have been more wrong. Great acting, writing, and overall production.

A TV show prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho (1960)" http://trakt.tv/movie/psycho-1960 Looking forward to see this.

Very creepy

I feel this show is so underrated... The acting is superb and writing is unbelievable. It's amazing really. I just wish it was more appreciated and the actors awarded. One of the best tv shows ever created, doesn't disappoint the movie. I highly recommend

avatar

The show gets better and better as it goes on. The 1998 shot by shot remake of Psycho was just lazy. Bates Motel is brilliant and full of it's own ideas on how to approach the characters.

avatar

The acting was good. But it cannot save the series from the pacing and disappointing story it tells. Got tired from the identity of Norma in Norman's mind. The ending was not rewarding for the 5 seasons it aired. Loved the violence and the consequences, but what really got me off was the overuse of the mother-son relationship.

avatar

Love this series. Always been a fan of Psycho and I adore how much they've incorporated all of the things from the original movie. Freddie Highmore is the perfect mix of creepy and sweet; and Vera Farmiga is amazing!

avatar

This serie is so freaking good!

avatar

I don't really understand the seemingly universal praise the show gets here. All the characters in it are so incredibly unlike-able that its almost painful for me to watch. I shall try and power through the last 2 episodes for this season but I'm pretty certain that I won't pick it up next season if they don't have something incredible in store for the remaining two. The story is not THAT entertaining or interesting to keep me invested in this show and stomach all the nonsensical decisions and bullshit that horrible mother of that idiot son spouts...

Very poor ending! Was waiting for more.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
