Default Bates Motel on A&E

Anyone watching this?

I had high hopes before it began, but it's been a huge letdown. Terrible writing and the suspense is nowhere near good enough to be considered Hitchcock-esque and worthy as a prequel series to 'Psycho'.

Vera Farmiga is captivating though. She got that vino flow as she ages like Kobe Bean himself. And, even though I thought the idea of Norman having some brother than appears out of nowhere was silly Max Thieriot is killin it in that role.

I'm really enjoying it. It is a pretty high standard to think that it will reach the level of the original film. The only thing I think isn't working is that all of these girls are throwing themselves at Norman even though he hasn't really done much.

It's entertaining enough, otherwise I wouldn't be watching week after week. But, I wish it had started out borrowing more Hitchcockian elements to at least partly resemble his work. It plays out like a cliche modern horror flick with some of its dun dun dun moments.

The show could have taken a risk to be original and show some retro style but instead chose to safely follow the formulas of today.
