Yeah, I think that was a mistake. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but it just seems off, because of it being a prequel to a film set in the 60's.
I liked it for the most part. Vera, as you said, is great so far, and the kid who plays Norman fits the bill. I thought some things seemed a little forced though. Mainly Norman's animal magnatism to hot chicks. He's some new loner kid, who is a bit socially awkward, and he immediately has four smokin' hot ladies surround him on a park bench? Yeah right.
Other than that though, pretty good. Looks like A&E won't be affraid to wander into some dark territories with the show, as well.
