Great cast , interesting episodes so far, 26 March 2013
Author: Ryan Fish from United States

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.
