One of the best shows ever to hit TV. The subtle way in which we see Norman lose his sanity is thrilling to watch. I can’t wait for further episodes as he takes on his Mothers identity. His love/hate for her has yet to be established. It would be a terrible injustice to see this show cancelled for at least the next 10 years as Norman/Mother do their deeds. Remember, Norman “wouldn’t hurt a fly).
