First You Dream, Then You Die

I originally planned on watching Psycho to segue into Bates Motel, but for whatever reason, my DVD wouldn't play on any of my DVD players or even on my Xbox. Anyway, I just got finished watching the Pilot episode and I am more than happy with the setup for both the series as well as the characters. My biggest concern was how they would make the relationship of Norman and Norma. To say that both Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore are perfectly cast in their respective roles is an understatement. I love the chemistry they both share. They play off each other with ease and makes everything in the movie a bit deeper (even if I didn't get to watch it today). Adding Nestor Carbonell to the series as the Sheriff is also good too.

But the coolest thing about the set up is that it's implied that the Hotel itself was already home to shady things going on long before the Bates moved into it, based strictly on the black book that Norman finds while tearing out the carpet. And from the angle of a couple of images on the pages of the book, the 'peep hole' was already present. Good twist at the end. Obviously someone is being drugged and tortured. But who is the captor and where? Maybe the Sheriff? I only say that because I suspect that he saw the body in the bathroom and chose not to reveal that he saw it....keeping the secret for everyone's sake. Just an idea.
