This series delves into a potential psyc profile of the Norman Bates character from Pysco. Being that it is set in modern times, it does not pretend to be the answer behind the character in the movie, but one theory behind the psychosis of Norman Bates. The series being half way into its first year has led you up one path and turned you down another. In an unusual twist for tv viewers mid season episodes have the excitement of a season ending episode. Viewers watching this show have a lot to talk about and will likely anticipate each episode with the same excitement of the first or last episode of a new season, making it refreshingly different from many other shows currently available. If you like this genre, you'll really like this series! Read more
