Riveting - worth watching
The pilot was quite riveting. The lovely and talented Vera Farmiga is excellent as the complicated possessive Norma Bates. Freddie Highmore doesn't yet have the creepiness of Anthony Perkins but it's early days lets see how things develop and he transforms. The supporting cast looks promising too.

Some unexpected things - it is set in the present day. A bit puzzling why all the pretty girls are so into the geeky Norman.

It is much better a prequel than Carrie Diaries which has too many inconsistencies. Norman Bates story is quite an open book and the coming story holds lots of possibilities. This is one to watch.
