This evening A&E (you know, that joke of a channel jam-packed with “Storage Wars” shows) took a step in a new and bold direction with “Bates Motel,” a dark and disturbing new spin on the Psycho lore. Typically pilot presentations are disappointing, and it takes up to 3 episodes to gain my interest; with “Bates Motel,” the series was ordered from the start, and appears to have done wonders for the shocker of a premiere episode! DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW. It looks to be incredible. If you saw tonight’s episode, let us know what you thought below…
After the premiere, A&E shared an early look at the twists and turns that are coming up in the first season, as well as a special look inside Ep 101 “First You Dream, Then You Die.” We also have the promo for episode 1X02 ” “Nice Town You Picked, Norma.”
In addition, they launched a BUNCH of behind-the-scenes videos, all available below the break.
In the “Writers’s Room,” Carlton Cuse, Kerry Ehrin and the cast talk about the process of creating the show, and where the story is ultimately taking the characters.
In “Directing “Bates Motel”,” learn how the intense performances in “Bates Motel” were brought to the screen with a behind-the-scenes look into the mind of the director.
In “Designing “Bates Motel”,” the cast and creators talk about the unique look of “Bates Motel” in this behind-the-scenes clip.
