Bates Motel -- Season Premiere -- "Gone But Not Forgotten" -- 3/03/14




Norman fixates on the death of Miss Watson. The economic livelihood of the motel is threatened when Norma finds out the bypass is moving forward, ahead of schedule. Bradley's hunt for her father's killer drives her to dangerous extremes.



10 episode 2nd season

Premieres Monday night. Yeah I know, Mondays are crazy.

If you're behind still and need to catch up, season 1 is on Netflix.

Sweet! Notice how Bradley is not in that pic. Between that and Nicola being in Transformers I have a feeling she gets offed in the season premiere.

"You're a DICK."

Farmiga is so fun to watch in this role. Looking forward to the "After Hours" post-show, just wish I didn't have to sit through "Those Who Kill" before it airs.

I feel like the city councilman came in second in the dick race to the priest who gave Norman a glare for crying at a funeral.

I've heard of mind-blowing blowjobs but that took the cake.

Wow! That was unexpected...

So glad to have this back. Seemed like too small an appearance for Emma, though.

I watched After Hours and, well, can't say it was good. Seemed very disorganized and the social media side seemed overdone. Same with Freddie's appearance. I guess with it being live, they couldn't edit out the delay, but I think that makes the point that they shouldn't have done it.

Funny, when they mentioned the creepiest scene, I right away thought of the Keith Summers rape scene, but was surprised to hear why Vera thought it was so creepy.

Wow, did not expect that at all from Bradley.

Honestly, I felt kind of dirty watching Bradley seduce Gil.

Great start to season 2. Kind of creepy seeing how obsessed Norman was about Miss Watson.

Not enough Emma in this episode. But, you can see she's still pissed at Norman from last season.

Loved Norma's outburst at the meeting..."You're a Dick!"

I didn't like A&E's weird box wipe in and out of the commercials.

I agree. Everyone seemed a tad stiff and uncomfortable and the apparent lack of a studio audience made the whole program feel flat. If they're going to try to copy the format of "Talking Dead", they at least need to add some random comedian/media personality who can liven up the conversation a bit. I do enjoy Carrie Keagan as a host... not quite as funny as Chris Hardwick, but a much nicer rack.

That was kind of annoying. I caught a bit of the repeat and it looked like they didn't show the wipes a second time.

The cast just didn't seem into it. They weren't taking the host (whom I have never heard of) all that seriously.

Didn't see the after show, but great first episode. Vera is insanely good as Norma Bates, the way she uses her eyes and body its just amazing. Not enough Emma though.

The scenes with Norma Bates stand far above any others when I watch the show.

Great episode. Very entertaining and surprising. Hope Bradley sticks around and not sure if Norma saying the town is run on drug money was a smart idea. Kinda wished that was kept under wraps a little more, but the council seem to poo poo it off, so maybe not too much harm done. Norman was in good form and creepy. This and Hannibal seem to be the shows I actually watch during the week and enjoy. The others sit in DVR limbo. Ugh.

Really enjoyed the episode, with Norma telling off the council as the highlight. Vera's so great in the role.

Watched this last night and liked it. Glad it takes place 4 months after the events of season 1 since Freddie Highmore looks to have grown up a little (it's only natural), so gives it some credibility.

Glad she found work after VH1 replaced her with Nick Lachey as the host on Big Morning Buzz.

Bradley is hardcore lol


Can this show become as big as Breaking Bad eventually or is the audience limited?

My Wife just Binge Watched S1 on Netflix and is now a fan. I may have to check it out...

We also watched a "Ed Gein" bio on YouTube due to her new found interest in the inspiration for Norman Bates.

Maybe because it was obvious she knew virtually NOTHING about the show? The cast was squirming in their seats...you could see Max just wanted the hell out of there. They got asked some of the dumbest questions. Is this a weekly thing or was it just for the premiere? I feel sorry if those actors have to show up every week for that.

This shows just how GOOD Chris Hardwick is - a lot of people don't like him, but at least he knows his subject matter.

Probably not the smartest thing for her to do when her oldest son is working for guys who run the drug empire. Dylan might end up being the next guy who's on fire.
