TV Marathon Alert

2 Mar

To celebrate the holiest day of the year*, A&E will be broadcasting a marathon of the first season of Bates Motel Sunday morning, starting at 8 CT.  I recently watched the entire season over the course of a few days, and this interesting prequel/updating of the teen years of Norman Bates (the title character of the classic Hitchcock movie Psycho) features a fantastic starring turn by Vera Farmiga as Norman’s mother, the mercurial Norma Bates, and a part-creepy, part-sympathetic performance by Freddie Highmore as the boy who would grow up to be Anthony Perkins.  With bad weather forecast for the middle part of the country tomorrow, you could do much worse than hunkering down and visiting Ocean View, CA.  The episodes are also available to view via streaming at  


The second season of Bates Motel premieres Monday (March 3).
