| Bates Motel Surprised Me!
I am pretty picky when it comes to television shows... and I actually really enjoy this one. It isn't my favorite, but it's definitely a lot better than expected! It's certainly on the DVR list.

I think that the actors are actually quite good (so many bad shows with terrible actors/actresses). The cast seems to have been carefully chosen, as the mother suits the role very well and the actor who plays Norman is absolutely perfect for the role. He is endearingly awkward.

I was worried it would be too "teenage" but it is not. It's actually not quite as dark as I had thought, but it is working it's way in that direction... which is good. I like a slow build. We learn more and more about Norman and his "issues" slowly through each episode instead of having it all thrown right in our faces in the first episode.

I suggest giving it a try!!

(sorry if this sucked... it's my first review!!)
