Season one is a wonderful development of the characters. Lilly Tomlin is worthy of an Emmy nomination. The chemistry building between these two jilted women is palpable. We watched the entire season this weekend and are going back for more. The mixture of laughs and tears is a perfect blend. Can't wait for season 2. The opening credits with the collapsing wedding cake is brilliant.… Full Review »
I watched every episode over the space of 2 days and I got to say this is one of the best seasons of TV ive ever seen!! If I had watched itI watched every episode over the space of 2 days and I got to say this is one of the best seasons of TV ive ever seen!! If I had watched it week by week with a mid season break I may have felt differently because of the slow pacing of some episodes. But on the whole Id still recommend this season to anyone. A great season of TV!!… Full Review »
I had hope for this show even though the pilot wasn't that great. After watching the first season I'm sad to say that it's terrible. It'sI had hope for this show even though the pilot wasn't that great. After watching the first season I'm sad to say that it's terrible. It's probably fine for young kids between the ages of 8 to 11 but for fans of Boy meets world it falls short. The episodes make little sense. Each episode starts off stating some problem or mission needing to be accomplished. It then leads to a series of random events that don't really go well together. Finally it ends with some big teaching moment that was blown up a lot bigger than it should have been. There is little comedy and the acting is over the top like watching a bad school play where everyone over acts. The plots of each episode have very poor story telling and aren't realistic to real life. I say if you have elementary school kids they may still enjoy this but adults and teens will be disappointed.… Full Review »

Fonda and Tomlin work well together in their love-hate, rather like-dislike relationship as the jilted wives. Sometimes the Sol/Robert scenes were a bit uncomfortable, would have liked less of their interactions although Sheen and Waterston create good characters. Any chance Dolly Parton can do a sketch on season two? Would really enjoy seeing the 9-5 ladies together again.… Full Review »
Norma Louise Bates: "Norman I will kick your ass to the moon and back".

Bates Motel as a TV series has been pretty good so far, I mean it's a lot different from most shows base on a classic horror films. I know we Hannibal which is another TV base on movie and that's great as well. Season 3 as a season was pretty solid and as I said before this is very rare that this happens.
Vera Farmiga as Norma Louise Bates was the stand out of this season and she gave in my opinion the best TV performance of the year and she always steals the show in every episodes she's in. Her performance was Emmy worthy and I heard some rumors about the Emmy nominations and I hope there put her on the list because she owned it.
For a while now I wasn't so sure of Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates because in the first season I thought he did okay. In the second season I thought he did better, I know it's suppose to be a slow build to his craziness but if I have to judge him playing the character I say he did okay, but in this season I sawed the real Norman Bates and a break through performance from Freddie Highmore. He played the harmless boy but really he's dangerous and he pulled that off really well.
The writing was fine, the rest of the cast did good and some of the character's this time actually matted and wasn't forgettable as the other ones.
Now for problems and these not a lot that I can name off: When I said about some of the character's matted, well these some didn't and those character's are not very interesting and don't do anything with the show. This was my other problem with the previous seasons and it's still happening in this season.
Overall season 3 was a solid season just like the second season of the show.… Full Review »
