Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life changing prison can really be.
"Bates Motel" is a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film "Psycho," and gives a portrayal of how Norman Bates' (Freddie Highmore) psyche unravels through his teenage years. Fans discover the dark, twisted backstory of Norman Bates and how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga), truly is. Written by

I wasn't expecting much from this series but a combination of good cast and fun episodes makes me look forward to this series on Mondays, right after The Following :D. The two main characters also are fantastic in the show. Freddie Highmore is always great in his roles and he even looks like a younger Norman. He puts on a very believable, soon to be psycho, Norman bates. And of course Verga Farmiga is also great as the overprotective mother.
Only thing I don't like so far is how "close" the mother/son are. Hopefully it doesn't turn into something like incest which would be a big turn off to the show.
