Bates Motel

I just seen the preview for this show on A&E tonight, i'm sure most of us here have seen the movie Psycho before. It premiers on March 18th, at 10 pm ET/PT.

Here's a look at the extended trailer.



Thoughts?

Comcast; On Demand had the 1st episode last night -- sneak peek.

I'd sum it up in 1 word: creepy.

Norman, his mother, most of the people from the town...creepy.

But since I like creepy serial killer shows, I'll watch the next episode. And more than likely, all of them.

Psycho is my favourite movie of all-time, so naturally I was none too pleased to see a modernized TV show about it. But I have to check it out.

My wife and I have been pumped ever since they originally announced this.

The show was shot here in Vancouver and I think A & E contracted for 10 episodes. I auditioned for a small recurring role as a deputy but didn't get the part. A few weeks later my agent asked me if I wanted to work 2 days on the show as a shipwright ( yeah - I had to look it up ) and since it was during the slow period for film & TV work here in BC ( last week in November ) I took the job. This will definitely be one of those " don't blink or you will miss me " types of shows for me. I will definitely watch the show as everybody working on it really thinks it's going to be a very good and most crew members will not hesitate to crap on any show they are working on if they feel it's going to suck.

I enjoyed episode one...a little confused why it's in modern times though...

Why not keep it a real prequel?

Because of two reasons:

a) making the show current appeals to the audience that they want
b) it's not really a prequel, it's more of a whole different animal just using the same setting and few main characters.

I can tell this show is going to have a wonderful soundtrack.

This show has a great cast. Vera Farmiga, Richard from Lost, Mike Vogel...

Also, Norman's language arts teacher is that chick from Final Destination 2.

I was wondering the same thing. I actually thought it was set in the period pre-Psycho movie era (was that the 50's) until I saw Norman waiting for the bus listening to his headphones. Was it just me, or did Mrs. Bates appear to dress like a 50's housewife?

Norman dresses like a '50s kid, and the motel is vintage '50s. They are both disturbed, and I have to assume it's all deliberate to make them creepier.

I might be jumping the gun a bit, but I have to assume Vera Farmiga gets Emmy nods.

Maybe Freddie Highmore as well.

Good point!

Question: Kinda new here so I've gotta ask... if the episode has already aired, can we discuss what happened in the previous episode or is that still considered a spoiler?

It's been long enough to simply discuss what has happened thus far. A spoiler tag is courteous if it's been only a day. That's how I feel, anyway.
