I suppose the insanity that ended in Psycho had to start some place, but in the present in suburban America under the aegis of a single mom raising her son? Please.

Things are going to have to go all Dexter and Breaking Bad really quick for this series to even have a snowball's chance of sticking around.

Robert Bloch and Alfred Hitchcock must be turning over in their graves.
Give it a go.

They establish Norma as a controlling, domineering mother right from the get go, and Norman is unusual right from the start but they are peeling back the layers with him in each passing episode.
