I like Jere Burns in Justified and he could be a cool character in this too. I really like his work in this past episode.
Also, at first, I thought I wasn't going to like Max Thieriot's character, but he's grown on me. It's like we get a better understanding of just how weird Norma and Norman's relationship is by seeing it through his eyes.
Weaker episode on Monday though. It was somewhat salvaged by the introduction of Burns' character, but still maybe the weakest one yet.
I hope this show gets to run it's own course and end on it's own terms the way Lost, prison break, and breaking bad did.
I like how for the most part the actors are good at conveying normal people to the extent that you forget how crazy they end up. Norman actually so far seems the most normal main character on the show. Though as you'd expect part of their relationship are a little too creepy such as him watching momma get changed.
I see that A & E is doing what AMC does with The Walking Dead in that they will have a live " after show " called Bates Motel: After Hours following the Season 2 premiere on Monday night. It also looks like this will only be for the 1st week as it doesn't show up in any TV listings I've checked for next week.
