When Norma walks towards the town-hall she's having a phone call with her mobile. She clearly ends the call and puts the phone away. In next shot, Norma is seen in front of the stairs of the town-hall. The mobile is still in her hands and she once again puts it away. See more »


Cody Brennan: My Aunt already cleaned out the guest room, she said. She has 5 cats, so her place probably smells like cat pee, instead of beer and smoke. Man, I can't wait until I'm 18 so I can pick the way my place smells.

Bates Motel

Anthony Cipriano, Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, it took these names to recreate the Hitchcockian legacy, balancing the fame and art, it is TV horror- something that hasn't quite cultivated as it has in cinematic life- among the best. First of all, it is one of those rare spin-off that works, it bucks the trend, but that's not saying a lot considering that we haven't had major success in such derivations. And it is to not be easily forgotten that even a huge funded show as such, the series took some time before it started running on the field smoothly. Some might give it a few episodes, personally I think it was from the third season where they finally agreed, in sync, to what or how they have to showcase this troublesome family. And it is a family event.

Unlike the films, this one deals majorly with the reasoning and history of why these members were pushed like such. And as far as that part is concerned, I find that they are hitting all the notes on the right scale. Do notice that whenever a family drama is involved, the chapters soar above all the other genre it claims to be. Some of the best elements are them, these family members, trying to resist and accept each other in the middle of this blood bath and crime sites that they take along with them, wherever they go.

Another expected outcome, is the performance of the cast. The creators have invested smartly on Vera Farmiga and she serves the appetite you were expecting from her. What's surprising is, Freddie Highmore- especially in third season where he transforms from something innocent to less innocent- pouring his soul out, he crafts this infamous character with precision and watery communicative eyes. Just watching these two reside in Bates Motel, makes the day for me.

Presumed Innocent

After a huge, long detour we finally get in sync with the makers as we nod to their idea of how and why and where are they going with this piece of information, which is passed on smoothly beneath this controversial and may be uncalled-for accident.
