That bothered me too. I kept expecting that they were setting him up for a prank.

I thought the first episode was solid but the second episode was a little disappointing. I'm afraid this show is gonna be all over the place.

The thing about this show, is that it's got pretty shallow material to work with. Noman Bates is a psycho, who had an obsessively overprotective mother. Where can you really go with that material? You can only show Ms. Bates' effect on Norman's personal life for so long, before it gets old. With Norman, all you can really do, is turn him into Dexter.

I don't see this show lasting very long.

I think the writers are aware the storys limitations hence why they opening up and creating sub plots with the towns folk.

It's only two episodes in so there's a lot of different directions the show could go in. Going by the trailers this was never going to be just about Norman and his Mother.

Fucking great episode! Twisted, intense and I did not see that ending coming.

Loved the nod to the original Psycho where

Norman had no recollection about trying to kill his brother with the meat hammer.

I agree. This show is taking it's time but it's getting more intense with each episode. They're slowly showing how unhinged Norman really is and I'm liking the Twin Peaks feel, what with the town and all of its dirty secrets.

How could this possibly be any good?

I mean, Norman is supposed to be creepy and schizo and his mom is supposed to be dead. It's a modernized version of a gothic tale.

How is a story about some MILF and her son even related to that? iis the mom overbearing and controlling? Is Norman nebbish and neurotic. 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.

Hmmm....

Maybe it's worth a look after all.
