Bates Motel

After the death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel in the picturesque coastal town of White Pine Bay, giving herself and her son Norman a chance to begin anew. Shy Norman is reluctant at first, but with the help of his mother he begins to open up to others and make new friends. Some locals, however, aren't as friendly and welcoming to the Bates.

'Bates Motel' Gets New Time Slot
Bates Motel has filled a new vacancy. The Psycho prequel is moving to Mondays at 10/9c, effective immediately, in light of A&E pulling Those Who Kill from its primetime line-up. A&E will air encore episodes of Bates Motel at 9 pm on Mondays before premiering new episodes at 10pm.

I think the other comment is strongly misinformed. The show takes place in modern times, because, like others, they wanted to create something different. The creators knew that they couldn't live up to Alfred Hitchcock's shadow. This show takes place in modern times, and secondly is exciting and has a stronger story than any other show on A&E today. I think there is enough gore since the storyline is trying to say more than he is plainly a boy who is also a killer. He has some backstory, deal with it. Anyway, that's my two cents.

I have stopped watching this show for many reasons but the main reason is..IT'S BORING!!. This show is supposed to give us the back story as to why Norman is such a whack job. We are supposed to see the sick and twisted relationship between him and his mother 'Norma'...The movie "Psycho" was filmed in the 60s and it is supposed to be int he 60's...the show started out staying true to the time period but last week I saw Norma working on her lap top. THERE WERE NO COMPUTERS IN THE 60S..how is it that she is working on one??? Also...this side story of the weed growers and her son's alliance with them is just plain distracting. I want to see more gore. I want to see more murders. I want the show to focus more on Norman and his sick, twisted fantasies about him and his mother. We are being given show after show of boring filler and I am tired of waiting for something 'exciting' or 'good' to happen. Check this show off my list of "to watch tonight" list.
