Time for another busy day of Comic-Con live-blogging. Because the "I'm Just Following Orders and I Have No Immediate Superior You Can Talk To" Comic-Con fascists have placed tight restrictions on computer charging in Ballroom 20, I'm gonna be live-blogging, rather than taking notes at panels and writing later. It's just easier. I've got "Bates Motel" now and then "True Blood," "The Vampire Diaries" and "Arrow" in the late afternoon. But for now? Let's hear about Season 2 for our favorite Mother-Son team of Norma and Norman Bates... 10:01 a.m. We're in Room 6 a for a packed panel. 10:01 p.m. »

As you may have guessed, I have a vested interest in A&E's Bates Motel thanks to the show's source material Psycho and that film classic's comely, clearly gay, and unforgettably awkward star Anthony Perkins. For me, that movie was about a cloistered gay dude attempting to overcome his own insecurities, social dysfunction, and maybe a couple of homicidal tendencies too. We've all been there.
Bates Motel, the original series that modernizes Alfred Hitchcock's tale of motel proprietor Norman Bates while exploring his childhood back-story, is not that intriguing, no matter how much of myself I project onto it. Based on the pilot, which debuted on A&E Monday night, it's fair to say the show is determined to establish itself as a spooky campfire tale, not a thrilling psychodrama for the ages. But maybe that's a worthwhile venture too. Well, wait -- was 666 Park Avenue worth it? Never mind. »
