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.
