The sheriff is an intelligent man who gets paid off by the local drug lords, or the sheriff is a putz who accepts the status quo for the betterment of the towns artificially vibrant and healthy economy.

Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

After having his conversation with "Mother" that resulted in Norman going to the Deputy's house to get the belt back, I'm starting to think that maybe Norma didn't kill her husband, but that "Mother" did.
I think you may be on to something there. Norman clearly doesn't remember that he tried to cave in Dylan's skull with the meat tenderizer. He's clearly having breaks from reality. The very first thing we saw of Norman was him waking up in bed with the tv on and he was fully clothed. Then he finds dad. Perhaps that's why Norma looked so very uninvolved and unsurprised when Norman came running to her crying. She knew Norman had done him in.

I'm starting to suspect that's why Norma's been coddling him so bad and not wanting him to be on his own (so he can't off anybody else). Next week's promo shows that Norma is fully aware that Norman is talking to imaginary people.
Excellent hook for next week. I know I'll be back. Maybe Norma isn't above having sonny boy do a little dirty work for her when needed? Just prod sonny a little bit and.....

Just saw a little featurette on A&E when I got up with insomnia and turned on the television. "Inside the episode" for Bates Motel episode 3. Man, I didn't realize how well Freddie Highmore hid his English accent. It's not so easy for them if they aren't doing a southern accent, either. He's almost as good as Jamie Bamber was on Battlestar. I consider him the gold standard of faking American accents.

Jaime Murray is playing an alien in Defiance in a fortnight so I'm not sure what that means for her accent... How English was she in Dexter?

She reminded me of a psychotic Lara Croft as Lila in Dexter Season Two. She even had the short shorts.

As a time displace Victorian Adventuress in Warehouse 13, they side stepped all suspension of disbelief and did dress Jaime up as Lara Croft on a mission to Egypt to break into a crypt (Yes I know, Warehouse 2, but noobs need shit dumbed down.)

Myka "What the hell are you wearing??!!"

HG Wells "No, no, I researched the subject thoroughly, THIS is what fashionable Archaeologists are wearing in this century."

Myka "No, that's what perverted American video game designers think fashionable Archeologists are wearing this century."

HG Wells "Oh"

...

I wonder how long until Norman has Tombraider fantasies about resucuing his mommy from the Temple of Doom?

Every episode could start with a wet dream about making out with his mother.

The complete opposite from Providence where the heroine would wake up dry to the bone after having nightmares about her dead mother being intrusive and judgemental.

Her character on Dexter was explicitly identified as British--and was memorably described by Dexter's sister as "a titty English vampire" and "pale as a fucking corpse."

Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

I keep reading Tombraider as Tom-braider. As in a hair stylist exclusively for male cats. Which is an entirely different video game. Thank you for propping up my dementia Greg.

Alex Kingston's yank accent on Arrow is appalling, but then she has to approximate an accent somewhere between her imaginary husband's fake American accent and her imaginary daughter's completely different "real" American accent... Good lord! Her father! Her father! My eyes!

Watched Hannibal last night.

Which entered production first and which is the cheap knock off rushed into production at the 11th hour to stymie the competition?

Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

Norma, Norma, Norma. You should have called the police when Sommers raped you. I want to feel bad for her because she is a victim, but she shouldn't have involved her child in the cover up, hotel or no hotel.

Dylan--to think I bitched and moaned about a brother being added to the story. It's genius. They've cast this series so incredibly well. The three family members are perfect. Dylan gives a damn after all.

I didn't expect Norman to sleep with Bradley since in the original he turned on the women whenever he became sexually excited by them. Of course, Norman isn't "mother" yet. Poor little Bradley. She is so dead. Of course this gives a tantalizing hint that a normal life is still possible for Norman. All the more tragic to snatch away from him.

Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

You know, now that they've established the Norman sometimes sees and hears things that aren't there, I find myself constantly questioning whether any given scene is actually happening.

The whole time Norman was fessing up to his brother about the rape/murder/coverup, I kept expecting a "stinger" scene where we found out that Norman was actually talking to an empty chair. But I guess not.

Ditto for that dream-like sex scene with Bradley . . . .

If the writers did that it would lose its effectiveness pretty quickly.

I kept seeing "Bradley" on the phone, then had to keep reminding myself it was the girl. Seems like an odd name choice for someone to give their daughter.

It was Boy who cried Wolf.

Dylan is so used to Norman "imagining" things that this was "the proof" that Norman is insane that Dylan was talking about on the stairwell with Norma.
