I flaked out of finishing Season 1 of BATES MOTEL (I’ll be fixing that soon thanks to the just released Blu-ray!), but what little I saw I extremely liked. Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore are perfectly cast as the iconic mother and son. Farmiga’s Norma finely straddles the line of seductive & deranged, and seeing the creepy chemistry between her and Highmore’s Norman takes the PSYCHO legacy into a whole other form of crazy.
Those jonesing to see what new exploits the Bates’ have in store are in luck; the teaser poster above confirms Season 2 of BATES MOTEL is returning in 2014!
