If you like drama I would definitely recommend it!!
Picking up immediately where the last season left off, life for the Bates family is certainly never dull. The episodes now seem to run at a more quicker pace as we discover and understand how young Norman Bates turned into a murderer. The lad now begins to experience blackouts and believes he's actually his mother when faced with confrontation. There's a new girl in his life, and Mrs. Norma Bates is finally accepted into the community and looks set to find some romance of her own. Meanwhile, there is a great deal of background created and character development for Norman's older brother Dylan, who has gone from one of the more reviled characters, to someone we can really sympathise with.
'Bates Motel' is simply great modern television, the acting is outstanding, and I can't wait for season three. To me, this is the definitive story of how Norman came to be, meaning that I can finally ignore the dreadful 'Psycho 4', which was also made for TV. Compulsive television is right here.
The DVD set includes deleted scenes and featurettes, including the 'Origins of a Psycho', and interviews with the cast and crew.
To be fair this season included a couple of romances between Norman and a Goth girl,and his friend Emma (she who walks with an attached Dyson continuously) and a cannabis seller which may have been included to attract a younger audience.
These pairings seemed very oddly matched and could only have been included to try to spice up the plot, but in my view were unnecessary.
Thankfully the main story rolled along very well with Norman discovering more about himself and Norma learning even more about manipulating others to better their position in this turbulent community.
What more is to come ? Season 3 beckons.
The Bates family here face several threats. A by-pass could destroy the Motel's livelihood. Arrival of Norma's long estranged brother signals trouble. Older son Dylan is caught in a feud between rival drug gangs, a high body count seemingly guaranteed. Meanwhile the dogged unsmiling sheriff suspects Norman may be involved in his teacher's murder....
Pace too slow for some? The creators deliberately aim not to have too much happening too soon. The film means virtually everybody knows how the story ends, so there is no point in arriving there too swiftly. (By the way, a fact that may surprise, there is very little violence in Hitchcock's film - mainly the two notorious sequences. There is far more violence in this television series.)
The modern setting works well, especially with the iconic Bates home on the hill faithfully recreated outside and in: still there is the Victorian feel (give or take a laptop and mobile phone). Tongue-in-cheek references will please the film's devotees: Norma glimpsed in a (the?) rocking chair; in the basement evidence of Norman's skills at taxidermy.
Ten episodes. Bonuses vary. "Origins of a Psycho" is interesting. Some of the "After Hours" sessions could be better handled, the first presenter perhaps too intrusive for some tastes. Better by far is the batch following the finale (complete with a blooper reel).
The series takes a risk, the film held by devotees as sacrosanct. It does a good job and shows Hitchcock's masterpiece no disrespect.
Norman is well cast, I don't think anybody hasn't said this... Dylan, I think the brotherly love is a nice addition. I'm just cringing waiting for him to die, though!
Good stuff, looking forward to the third!
