Just started watching Season 1 on Bates Motel, the so-called prequel to Psycho I through IV. I didn't make it past the second episode. First of all, it's really slow and boring. The writing is terrible, with bad dialogue. The main problem, however, is consistency. If this is a prequel, why is it set in the 21st Century? And, if one is going to do that, why does Norman's teacher wear 1950s clothing? The cars also look really retro as well. Hannibal, the TV show, which is also made to be a prequel, although also set in the 21st Century, is consistent with that image and is not only believable in it, but enticing. This is just confusing. The dialogue isn't even consistent. A cop says, in the beginning of episode 2 that a person hasn't been seen for two days, and then later on in the episode, when Norman's mother mentions that the person has disappeared, the cop denies saying he said that earlier. I mean, really? I don't believe TV audiences are that stupid. Anyway, I am so over it. I gave it a shot. So unless someone tells me it gets better, I'm done watching it.
