Does anyone watch The Bates Motel?

does norma have a crush on norman?

  • It's supposed to be about what happened before the Psycho movies - and if you've seen them, then you know how warped that whole relationship was.

    I refuse to watch that show, because it's supposed to be about before the Psycho movies, but it's set in the present. Just doesn't work for me.

  • I gave the first two episodes a chance and couldn't handle it... So cheesy and the acting is awful. I was really looking forward to it, too.

  • I just saw the movie with vince Vaughn but that was the only one I caught. she was already dead so I didn't know how warped it was. You explained it so well though.

  • I didn't know there was a version with Vince Vaughn. The only ones I knew of were the old ones, and they were from...1950s? 1970s? I can't remember, I just know there was nothing modern about it, so the idea of showing us his relationship with his mother before she died in a time of cell phones and GPS is just ridiculous to me.
