Bates Motel 1.5 “Ocean View” (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Norma Bates has got some issues, doesn’t she? Last week’s episode ended with Norma (Vera Farmiga) being arrested for murdering Keith.  Tonight’s episode begins with her sitting in jail and telling both Dylan (Max Thierot) and Norman (Freddie Highmore) that they’re not acting properly upset over her situation.  “Just leave me here,” she tells them, […]

Bates Motel 1.4 “Trust Me” (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Last night’s episode of Bates Motel might as well have been called “Norman Bates Gets Laid.” Oh sure, a few other things happened during the episode.  Norman hallucinated, Norma criticized, Deputy Shelby smiled blandly while thinking evil thoughts, a disembodied hand turned up, Dylan learned the truth about the man that Norman and Norma murdered […]

Bates Motel Episode 1.1 “First You Dream, Then You Die” (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

When I was in high school, I once wrote a short story for my creative writing class.  The story was basically about me and my friends shopping at the mall and it was full of quirky observations and funny dialogue.  I had a lot of fun writing it and, when I read it aloud, both […]

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead [now in it’s third season] is a show adapted from graphic novels (or comic books, for the artistically impaired). Although I have not read the graphic novels, many people I share the love of this show with have, and say it [after the middle of the first season] holds pretty well to […]
