Now that I live in the country of my favorite TV shows, I take a lot more time to discover some series I didn’t have time to see in France ( thanks Netflix…) !
So I recently watch the first season of Bates Motel. This series was in my list « to watch » since a long moment and I’m really glad to tried it because I’m not disappointed at all by the story !
It is inspired by the famous and classical movie « Psycho » by Hitchcock (witch itself was inspired by a book) and takes place as a prequel of what’s happen in the movie (but not in the same geographic place and in a different times) and turn around two principal characters : Norman Bates and his mother Norma. The story begins with the death of Norman Bates’ dad. His mother decides to start a new life by moving in a little town in Oregon and buy a motel.
All seems to be complicated and mysterious after their arrival. A man attacked Norman’s mother and another one is discovered burned in a running car. Norman tries to do all he can to help his mom and to integrated to the people of the town, but day after day, he’ll discover more and more about himself…
This series is particularly amazing, full of suspense and full of surprises ! I really enjoy the gloomy atmosphere and the perfect characters.
