You can read my review of every Bates Motel episode here! Last week Bates Motel closed the book on its second season in a character development-laden finale that proved me wrong on nearly all of my predictions. That’s not to say The Immutable Truth was a disappointment, though. Hardly. In fact, season 2 of Bates Motel closed on a note […]
You can read my review of every Bates Motel episode here! Once again, I am late to the party on getting a review written and posted for Bates Motel. I apologize to all of my loyal readers for that. Things have been hectic lately as we prepare to take The Obsessive Viewer Podcast to Indy PopCon later this month. If […]
You can read my review of every Bates Motel episode here! How about that? For a change, I’m not posting this review on Monday, mere hours before the next episode airs. I’m kind of proud of that but that’s neither here nor there. Some big things happened this week that will usher in the end of the season in a […]
You can read my review of every Bates Motel episode here! Before I get to my (late again) review, I want to mention that Bates Motel was officially renewed by A&E for a third season. As with the first two seasons, I’ll probably review each episode. For now, let’s get to this week’s review.
You can read my review of every Bates Motel episode here! I apologize for the lateness of this post. I’ve been on a tear rewatching Game of Thrones, watching/reviewing House of Cards and editing some recent (and future) podcast episodes. Nevertheless, I’m here now with my latest Bates Motel review and I’m just in time for tonight’s all new episode.
Television has long had a tradition of “water cooler moments.” They’re scenes or whole episodes where some big game changer happens and the audience is left in such a state of awe, they immediately discuss it at the water cooler at work the next day. Even though DVR and Netflix, not to mention Internet communities and social media, have significantly […]
I’m ashamed that it’s taken me 12 episodes of this series to realize the significance of the Bates’ basement and it’s connection to Psycho. I feel like I should get points for noticing (and appreciating) the nod to Hitchcock in this episode’s title, though. That should count for something. Right? Before I get on with my review, make sure you […]
You can find all of my Bates Motel reviews here. Welcome back to White Pine Bay and the mercurial world that surrounds the eventually infamous Bates Motel. Before I get started on my review, you can click here to check out my reviews from last season of A&E’s Psycho “pre-imagining” series. When we last left teenage Norman Bates, he had […]
So it’s been a week since the Bates Motel season finale. I’ve given it time to settle and I’m finally ready to post my thoughts. The episode was a nice mix of resolution and setup, as are all good season finales. Some things didn’t pan out the way I hoped or expected them to turn out. But overall it was […]
“12 rooms, 12 vacancies.” I meant to post this yesterday but, in all honesty, House of Cards has taken over my life the past few days. I guess this week I’ve lived up to my online persona. This week Norman studied some taxidermy while a variation of a famous line from Psycho crept its way into the show. (SPOILERS AHEAD….)
