Freddie Highmore - Should You Check Into the Bates Motel Tonight? Our Review Is Live!We’re just a few hours away from the premiere of “Bates Motel” on A&E, and in case you’re wondering if it’s worth your time, our resident Psycho expert, Jinx, has sent over his initial impressions of the first three episodes.

Having also seen these episodes, I concur 100% with what Jinx says about the series thus far, especially the phrase “full of horror, heart, and the blackest of humor.” Once you’ve watched it as well, be sure to check back in with us to share your thoughts.

A&E Network will premiere the new original scripted drama series “Bates Motel” from executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights”) on Monday, March 18th, at 10 PM ET/PT. “Bates Motel” is a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho and promises to give viewers an intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates’ psyche unravels through his teenage years. Fans will have access to the dark, twisted backstory of Norman Bates and how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma, truly is.

The series stars Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed), Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Finding Neverland), Max Thieriot (Disconnect), Olivia Cooke (Blackout), and Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender). Season One also co-stars Nestor Carbonell (“Lost,” The Dark Knight Rises) and Mike Vogel (“Pan Am”). “Bates Motel” is produced by Universal Television for A&E Network. Cuse and Ehrin serve as executive producers for Carlton Cuse Productions.

Series Premiere Synopsis – “First You Dream, Then You Die” (3/18/13 air date):
Norma Bates buys a motel on the outskirts of an idyllic coastal town seeking a fresh start with her teenage son, the handsome and shy Norman.

    At first I wasn’t sure if setting this in the current day would work, but now, like Jinx, I think it was a very smart move. It allows for surprises and keeps things interesting for sure. And yes, believe the hype – Farmiga and Highmore are as amazing as everyone is saying they are. And Thieriot is a nice addition as well. Plus, the weirdness of the town gives things a very cool Twin Peaks-y vibe, which has been missing from TV for far too long!
