TV Show Spotlight

Name: Bates Motel

Seasons: 3 (4th season starts 3/07/16)

What It’s About: This show is essentially the prequel to the novel and film Psycho. It’s the story of Norma Bates, a loving, overprotective mother, and her son, Norman, who is one psychotic individual. There’s a lot of crime  going on in the small town of White Pine Bay, most of which is repeatedly swept under a rug. Norman falls right in the middle of everything.

My Thoughts: I’ve read the book, and I’ve seen the film. Needless to say, I am quite obsessed with this story and its characters. The show adds so much depth to both Norma and Norman, and it’s so hard not to love their twisted minds. Another factor I love about this adaptation is the addition of Dylan, Norman’s brother. I completely adore him, and I think he brings some sanity into the family. I devoured season 3 in a few days, especially because each season is only 10 episodes long. This show is packed with action, murder, intrigue, and wonderful characters that keep you guessing. It is purely addictive.

Rating: 9/10
