    I saw Psycho at 15, because my mother thought it was a classic.
    Now Bates Motel has the storyline and background of how Norman developed in his psyche due to his mother. The cliffhangers are superb and it’s difficult to wait until the next week for it’s return….we have Bates Motel night with friends who are fascinated by this series. IT SHOULD STAY A GO! :-)

    I can’t believe this was renewed for a second a season and now a third? Crappy and declining ratings but still renewed. A&E must have some deal going with Carlton Cruse. Is this what so called entertainment on TV has come to, brutal rape scenes etc. Pure garbage.
