Glad to hear praise. I was excited for it and saw it got, I think for A&E, great ratings.

Got it on my DVR so I'll have to watch. Can't wait. Psycho is a movie I remember the first time I watched it. I'm horrible remembering even LINES from movies but I remember when I watched certain movies. LOL. Anyway ...

Yes, it was. Watched last night. I'm in. I can't wait to see this story unfold. Ratings were good, as Rick posted, so that's promising. I hope there's no drop.

I got chills when they showed that house and motel. They did a great job with all of it. I'm very happy and impressed. Vera Farmiga is AMAZING. I like Freddie, too, but she's far, far better.

I also like that it's a modern, current day take of the same story. It still works. I almost forgot it was supposed to be modern until the girls showed up with the car and the phones and Norma's iPhone went off. LOL. I loved how she was hacking ribs with a big ass knife as Dylan called.

I quickly fell behind but caught up a bit thanks to A&E's marathons (even though I had all the episodes on my DVR, LOL). Still have to watch the last two episodes so I skipped to the bottom to post.

I really have grown to love Dylan. I couldn't stand him initially. I also think the cast is just fantastic. The show really has this great feel to it. I love everything about it, and of course the nostalgia fanboi in me just loves seeing the Bates house and motel on a weekly basis.

But I really like the development of the characters and how just when you think you 'know' what's going on they rip the bandaid off and holy shit hell breaks loose.

Such a good show and I'm very glad it's coming back. I haven't kept up with the ratings but for A&E, I guess it's doing pretty well? I feel like the initial buzz has worn off, I never see much about it. A&E's shows often seem to just kind of exist without huge social buzz, IMO.

Can't wait to watch the final two episodes. Jere Burns is fantastically creepy and I can't wait to see what his character is about.
