Storyline

Four months have passed since the death of his school teacher Miss Watson and Norman still has no recollection of exactly what happened that night. He remembers being at her house but the next thing he recalls is running down the road in the rain. He visits her grave frequently and on one occasion manages to photograph a stranger standing at her grave. Bradley Martin, who attempted suicide after realizing her dead father was having an affair with a woman using the initial B, is released from a mental institution. She approaches her father's former business partner, Gil, who brushes her off. She decides to take a more direct approach. Norma meanwhile takes on the local municipal council after she learns that work has begun on the bypass. Written by garykmcd

Bates Motel

Anthony Cipriano, Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, it took these names to recreate the Hitchcockian legacy, balancing the fame and art, it is TV horror- something that hasn't quite cultivated as it has in cinematic life- among the best. First of all, it is one of those rare spin-off that works, it bucks the trend, but that's not saying a lot considering that we haven't had major success in such derivations. And it is to not be easily forgotten that even a huge funded show as such, the series took some time before it started running on the field smoothly. Some might give it a few episodes, personally I think it was from the third season where they finally agreed, in sync, to what or how they have to showcase this troublesome family. And it is a family event.

Unlike the films, this one deals majorly with the reasoning and history of why these members were pushed like such. And as far as that part is concerned, I find that they are hitting all the notes on the right scale. Do notice that whenever a family drama is involved, the chapters soar above all the other genre it claims to be. Some of the best elements are them, these family members, trying to resist and accept each other in the middle of this blood bath and crime sites that they take along with them, wherever they go.

Another expected outcome, is the performance of the cast. The creators have invested smartly on Vera Farmiga and she serves the appetite you were expecting from her. What's surprising is, Freddie Highmore- especially in third season where he transforms from something innocent to less innocent- pouring his soul out, he crafts this infamous character with precision and watery communicative eyes. Just watching these two reside in Bates Motel, makes the day for me.

Gone But Not Forgotten

This is what I love about the lead character. This is what made Hitchcock's version terrifying. The protagonist is menacing but doesn't understand what could put his neck in the noose, but also primarily, he is a protagonist. In the sense that he will get to you, you will be rooting for him eventually; his conversation with the Sheriff is scary.
