With its Season 2 premiere still several months away, "Bates Motel" is one of the most exciting returning shows on the midseason slate. The A&E drama proved itself in Season 1 to be fantastic not just for its connection to "Psycho" but also on its own merits, and delivered such a quality story that there's no denying it does the classic thriller justice.
Yet still there might be some out there doubting whether "Bates Motel" is worth their time. It's hard at the outset to understand why a prequel/retelling of "Psycho" would be must-see television. This writer will be the first to argue that remakes and sequel/prequels horribly overpopulate the Hollywood landscape, yet "Bates Motel" is a project that's proven its worth many times over.
The key to having a project that revisits previously successful source material work is having its new take on the story inform the original, »
