"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
A&E Television Networks
When asked if she would like to direct an episode of the show, Vera Farmiga hesitated because, on a TV show, the director doesn't have final cut. See more »
The outside of the Bates house is extremely small. The front porch is no more than 10 feet wide, and the whole house less than 25 feet wide, and perhaps 30 feet deep. (This is about the size of 4 of their hotel rooms.) And yet many of the rooms inside the house are much larger than this. The master bedroom alone is at least 30'x30', and it is just one room on the upper hallway, that includes a vaulted stairway. See more »

When I moved here, no one prepared me for the colossal, frickin' face-dive off a cliff that living in this crazy town really is!

Names in the main credits have one letter (in each part of the name) in blue neon, like the Bates Motel sign. The letter is usually at or near the middle of the name. See more »
Watch it,that is all that needs to said about this series.It has got decent actors,great pacing it has the makings to become one of my favourite shows.I can not wait for the next episode,i have watched three and they have all been very good i would rate this as a nine out of ten.I was not expecting it to be this good.I am not going to say to much as i don't want to spoil it.There are some shocking moments so remember that it has a horror theme and is very violent in places.They have gone all out with good actors i knew all of them from good films and series.The guy who plays the legendary Norman Bates does it perfectly,he even looks like him from certain angles,the mother plays the part very well i cant pick a bad fault about any of the actors.The story has me hooked,i know this is going to be good all the way to the end.
