This show has been made with a lot of thought and care, there is good character development and plot. Just like the new Hannibal drama, we know what the end game is but the effort put into making this can be seen from the very first scene leaves one waiting impatiently for the next episode.

I have never watched Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock but this drama is based on the lead up to the films main character, Norman Bates, from when he and his mother turn up to a new town for a fresh start and purchase the motel that was supposed to provide their income.

Let me start off with I'm a massive MMA fan and practioner of BJJ and loved King of Queens so I feel I enjoyed this more because I am familiar with the set, BUT I have to say I loved it because it tried to keep the plot believable and screen friendly.

3.0 out of 5 stars its an ok film, 17 Feb 2013
this was a very well made film, my only gripe, and perhaps i am being too pedantic, is that a future self can time travel back and be impacted by physical changes from their younger self but not any concious changes that would occur in seeing oneself from the future.

an example not from the film but in line with it, if i see my future me with no scars but i have an accident tomorrow and have a scar the future me changes (surely this should already be on my future self as it has already happened to him) and also if my future self reveals something undesirable to me and I avoid it can my future self really exist to tell me this. very confusing
