1.)This show is one of the best, if not the best, production to come out of the former Lostaways from Bad Robot. It takes some deft handiwork to work up a Hitchcockian level of suspense in a prequel that every viewer knows for a fact is going to end badly. Really badly.
Freddie Highmore is perfect as Norman: sweet, polite - a little stiff, and his relationship with Vera Farming's Norma is never less than a revelation. You're constantly being reminded that these are basically good people who love each other a lot and who are making the best choices they can with the baggage they are carrying. The backstory to the backstory adds more heartbreak to the already, for at least one of them, unbearable load. The characters who are not in the movie are equally complex and sympathetic, and as we learn more about them, we fear more for them.
Every season has gotten better. I'm actually not sure I can bear to watch another.
2.)Riveting. Rich character development-- likable folks with complicated lives and a thriller of a story. Not for the faint of heart. Start with Season 1 and enjoy the twisty turns of the ride!
3.)What an amazing artist. If you like or appreciate "The Golden Age",. This
Is one artist you should listen too. Whether he sings in English or German he is top notch!
3.)As you can tell if you've seen my reviews of Seasons 1 and 2, I LOVE this series! lol Retrospectively, I think I said that I thought Season 2 was even better than Season 1. In some ways, that's true, in others not. The one area that I would say Season 1 did better than Season 2 is the drug trade subplot. However, what Season 2 did that was more important is delve deeper into the twisted Bates' extended family relationships, including pushing the envelope on the symbiotic Norma-Norman mother-son bond and diving into the truth about Norma's sexual abuse by her older brother Caleb and how it affects Dylan. SEASON 3 upped the ante! Focusing a lot less on the subplots of Seasons 1 and 2 (drug and sex trade, town politics and shady dealings), Season 3 introduces a subplot, the Arcanium Club, that deftly ties back into the genesis of the Bates' clan arrival in White Pine Bay, Oregon back in Season 1.
