16 hours ago | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Dylan has a big decision to make as Season 2 of "Bates Motel" comes to an end, but before we pull the trigger on the final two episodes, let's take a quick look back at last night's excellent Episode 2.08, "Meltdown."

In this behind-the-scenes look at the episode, the cast and creators discuss Dylan's role as family protector, Romero's fear of having put away the wrong man, and Norma and Norman's evolving relationship.

"Bates Motel" Episode 2.08 - "Meltdown" (aired 4/21/14)

Romero (Nestor Carbonell) digs for the truth behind Miss Watson’s murder while the war between the drug families presents Dylan (Max Thieriot) with an impossible choice.

21 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It doesn't seem possible that just two episodes are left in Season 2 of "Bates Motel," but we like their "always leave 'em wanting more" approach. Because we sure do want more! For now we'll settle for this preview of next week's Episode 2.09, "The Box."

"Bates Motel" Episode 2.09 - "The Box" (airs 4/28/14)

Norma (Vera Farmiga) tries to connect with Norman (Freddie Highmore). Dylan (Max Thieriot) must decide if he should risk his life to save a loved one.

Meanwhile, Romero (Nestor Carbonell) turns to a former colleague for help.

Bates Motel episode 7 review: Presumed Innocent

16 April 2014 4:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Michael Noble 16 Apr 2014 - 11:56

Patience and restraint are two of Bates Motel's chief virtues. Here's Michael's review of another steady episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.7 Presumed Innocent

One of the aspects of Bates Motel that I enjoy the most is the (relatively) low bodycount. For a show that centres on a serial killer, albeit one who is still very much serving his apprenticeship, there is an admirable restraint in the way it portrays Norman's steady descent into infamy. It’s testament to the smartness of the show’s writers that they focus on the character’s situation and changing emotional circumstances rather than attempting to shock the viewer with ever more gruesomely inventive (and grimly implausible) murder scenes. This is shown both narratively, such as in the presentation of Norman’s fugue states (and his loved ones’ failure to understand them) and structurally, such as in this »

15 April 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From Anchor Bay Films, Sneak Peek director Adam Rodgers' romantic comedy feature "At Middleton", starring Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga now available on Blu-ray and DVD:

"...'George' and 'Edith' are two strangers who meet on their children’s campus tour at the idyllic 'Middleton College'. Failing comically to connect with their kids, George and Edith play hooky together, ditching the official tour for a carefree adventure reminiscent of their own college years. 

"But what begins as an afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever in a deeply moving portrait of roads not taken and the timelessness of youth..."

Also starring are Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Peter Riegert and Tom Skerritt.

2014 MTV Movie Awards predictions: Is this the year for 'Hunger Games?'

11 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section.

A&E released just a few stills from next week's Episode 2.07 of "Bates Motel," entitled "Presumed Innocent," and they don't reveal much. But then again, we'd much rather be surprised when we watch the ep, especially with all the twists and turns this season is taking - wouldn't you?

Bates Motel Renewed for Season 3

9 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

THR recently announced that their hit drama Bates Motel will be back for a third season. Here is what they had to say:

The incredible writing team and talented Bates Motel cast has made this series one of the most compelling original dramas on television,” said network executive vp and general manager David McKillop. “The brilliant twists and turns of the past two seasons keep its loyal fan base coming back for more. We are so proud of the show

In my opinion, this is outstanding news. Bates Motel is one of my favorite shows on TV. The cast, led by the stunning Vera Farmiga and the uber-creepy Freddie Highmore, is phenomenal. 

The story follows a young Norman Bates and his mother Norma and what happens around them as they run the infamous Bates Motel. Psycho is in my top five favorite movies of all time, and I feel that »

Bates Motel Season 2 Episode 2 Review – Shadow Of A Doubt

8 April 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

If last week’s season 2 premiere was anything to go by then Bates Motel is likely to bring yet more thrills and spills than ever before. With Norman’s state of mind ever-elapsing and Bradley also heading towards a downward spiral, the repercussions of last week’s episode would be fully felt in the latest entry into the show’s run, entitled Shadow Of A Doubt.

Following Bradley’s murder of Gil, tensions in certain corners of the community were rightfully mounting, and the likelihood of gang warfare creeping in by the second. At the heart of this possible danger, Dylan was reminded that the drug business he is currently deep into is filled with death and destruction, as the threat of a war reared its head.

Elsewhere, while Dylan had non-family affairs to cope with, Norma continued to coax in an air of normality into Norman’s life, suggesting »

Bates Motel renewed for season 3

7 April 2014 11:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Louisa Mellor 8 Apr 2014 - 07:25

A&E will be returning to White Pine Bay for a third season of its Psycho prequel drama, Bates Motel...

Bates Motel was one of the first to arrive in the recent glut of movie-inspired TV shows (see Fargo, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, the recently commissioned 12 Monkeys...), and it's a bet that paid off for its network.

Season two of the Psycho origin story starring Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his, er, overbearing mother Norma has attracted a healthy viewership and continued to win critical applause, hitting the jackpot for A&E.

A third ten-episode season of Bates Motel has thus been ordered, and is due to arrive in spring 2015.

Bates Motel Gets A Third Season

7 April 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that A&E has chosen to renew their hit drama, Bates Motel for a 10-episode third season, which will begin production this fall. The Psycho prequel has been a big hit with both audiences and critics ever since its debut and is currently midway through its second outing.

If those names sound familiar, it’s because they are characters from Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic horror movie, Psycho. The show acts as a “contemporary prequel” to the late director’s work, giving us a look at how Norman’s “psyche unravels through his teenage years.”

Aided by extremely strong performances from Freddie Highmore and Vera FarmigaBates Motel is a chilling drama that packs suspense, action and thrills into every episode, making it the perfect companion piece to Hitchcock’s now legendary film. »
