There are a few horror based TV shows that I would recommend to my readers, and if you haven't been watching already, you should get on the Bates Motel train while the getting is good. While I think it's still too early to tell if the show is going to take a turn for the worse, I've got high hopes for it and the first season left me wanting more (as opposed to less), so I'm guessing that's a good thing.
In anticipation for the premiere of season two next Monday, March 3rd, A&E has a released a new TV spot for the season and my, oh my, does it look tasty. I've watched it a good 3 times, and it looks like we'll really be getting into the darkness behind Norman's relationship with his mother Norma in this season, as well as his own psyche, and that's what I think most people are watching the show for.
Starring the stunning talents of Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, "following the tragic death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets."
SPOILERS FOR SEASON TWO:
“Picking up from last season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson’s death while Norma’s mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother. Meanwhile, Norman’s brother Dylan, (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father’s killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her relationship with Norman as the duo explore new love interests, bringing new and old characters along for the ride.“
