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 »

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

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 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.

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. »

A&E Renews Bates Motel For a Third Season

7 April 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Halfway through its second season, Bates Motel has been renewed by A&E for another ten episode run.  The engrossing and underrated drama was developed by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights), and acts as a prequel of sorts to the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho. The series' greatest strength has been creating a world that leads up to, but isn't dependent, on the story on which it is partially based.  Actually, scratch that -- the series' greatest strength is the Emmy-nominated Vera Farmiga, who plays Norma Bates.  Farmiga's Norma is crafty, vulnerable, and hypnotic to watch -- she's completely unpredictable as the character and in the way Norma is portrayed.  Hit the jump for more on the series (spoiler-free), and its current ratings.  According to A&E, Bates Motel's second season premiered with 4.6 million total viewers, with 2.6 million being adults between 18-49, and 2.2 million between 25 and »
