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.

Forever

It is difficult to go through this chapter. What is crafted as a solace has a lot of damnation within its soul. The case, actually, has just begun now and the momentum carries way too much weight to be stopped by some push or easy force, Highmore is high on love.
