5 Best Additions That BATES MOTEL Made To The PSYCHO Mythos!

What’s been fun about BATES MOTEL for me as a life-long PSYCHO fan is trying to guess how and when certain threads from the original mythos will present themselves. Pretty much since the very beginning, we knew this modern remake of the story of Norman Bates and his Mother would eventually loop into the events […]

From BATES MOTEL To PSYCHO: The Sad Existence Of Norman Bates

Although considered a disappointment upon its initial release, both critically and commercially, I look back on 1986’s PSYCHO III in retrospect as the linchpin of the entire franchise. Helmed by Norman Bates himself Anthony Perkins, the sequel picked up immediately following the events in PSYCHO II, but did something that the franchise hadn’t really ever attempted before […]

Here’s What We Hope We’ll See Of PSYCHO In BATES MOTELS’ Final Season

Like a lot of you devoted fans out there that have been watching A&E’s BATES MOTEL since the beginning, I was pretty blown away by the shocking 4th season; arguably the series best thus far. And while we now have a long wait until BATES MOTEL resumes new episodes for its 5th and final season […]

Why BATES MOTEL Just Had Its Best Season Ever!

Right now, BATES MOTEL is my favorite show on television. (Keep in mind, though, that I watch a lot of TV, so this changes weekly — sometimes daily.) I have been watching it from the start. It went downhill in season two, but has been getting consistently better. Season four has been the best season yet. […]

Let’s Talk About That BATES MOTEL Season 4 Finale…

Last night, A&E wrapped up the 4th season of their hit series BATES MOTEL in surprising and shocking fashion. Knowing that next year’s 5th season is intended to be its last makes sense considering how everything transpired and fell into place by this season’s conclusion. But since it was such a drastic departure from what […]

Freddie Highmore As Norman Bates Deserves All The #RESPECT In the World

This column is dedicated to those bad-asses that keep us coming back for more. And it’s about time that we […]
