[TV] “Bates Motel” Video Bonanza: Several Videos Tease Premiere Season!

Bates_Motel_Banner_2_12_13

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.

    I wasn’t very impressed with episode 1. I disliked the contemporary setting, and I’m not a huge fan of the casting.

  • KeepDoubting

    I loved the first episode! I’ll definitely be tuning in every week.

  • Kroork

    Wasn’t interested at all but I saw it was on tonight so I recorded it. Will maybe check it out later

  • thevyrsaiplague

    There seems to be no need for this show but I’ll check it out once it’s on demand.

  • TheManInBlack

    Loved all the Psycho nods in the first episode. Cast is great. This first episode is way better than anything I’ve ever seen on The Walking Dead.

    • K-Dogg

      You must have watched a few Season 2 eps only then, or that is one moronic statement !!! But hey, we all have our opinions.

    • Aaron Emery

      That’s not surprising, re: ‘The Walking Dead’. What a bore.

        WHAT?!! this most recent ep of TWD was fucking awesome! i agree some eps are meh…but last night’s ep was full on slasher/horror/stalker IMO. when the Gov. was pulling a Michael Myers on Andrea…i was on the edge of my seat!! i am going to watch BATES tonight. i hope i love it! i love Vera Farmiga, so she is the main draw for me!

    It wasn’t bad per se but the modern setting was a bit off putting. It seemed a bit Norman’s Creek in tone. One episode isn’t enough to pass judgement though.

  • egaltt23

    I was really impressed. I love the cast!

  • djblack1313

    i too thought this was REALLY good! the entire cast is great but Vera Farmiga as Norman’s mom steals the show. she’s an amazing actress! i can’t wait to see her in THE CONJURING!

  • Zombie-Killa

    LOVED IT!!!!

    Dark, creepy, and mysterious. Bates Motel hooked me within the first five minutes of the show, and I can’t wait until next week’s episode! I know it’s just one episode, but Vera Farmiga was superb. I don’t know about everyone else, but enjoyed her more than the kid, who played Norman.

      Zombie-Killa, as usual(!!), i agree w/ you! Vera was amazing!
