The first six minutes of A&E’s new series, Bates Motel, hit over the weekend. Watch it within and see the incident that sets Norma and Norman Bates on the road to moving into the eponymous location. The contemporary Psycho prequel series stars Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates, Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates, Max Thierot, Olivia Cooke, Nestor Carbonell and Mike Vogel.
As someone who has seen the first episode, I can say it’s pretty solid. Farmiga and Highmore sell it with very good performances and it doesn’t waste any time exploring the darkness of Norma and Norman.
