So we are into the 2nd episode of Bates Motel and it just slowly reeled us in and hooked us.

I was a little discombobulated for a little while. As we said, itís not following Psycho, but more of a mashup of the old story and setting to present day and Mom (Norma) and Norman's perspective. It is Psycho's house and hotel setting.

Come to think of it, this mashup is refreshing. I know they are going after the younger crowd with the current setting, because they already have a captured audience with the old generation. I donít know what limits A&E set, but like AMC, it appears they are going to push as much as possible. The first episode had a pretty brutal ****.

I like what Iíve seen and will make efforts to stay with it. Casting Freddie Highmore as Norman is spot on and I swear they brought on Nestor Carbonell (Sheriff Alex Romero) because of looking so much like a young Anthony Perkins. Well, maybe he could act too.
