Entertaining Series about Abnormal Norman and Norma, his mummy...
- Bates Motel: Series 4 review by PV
This series is really interesting and enjoyable. Occasionally, one is brought to think how ridiculous it all is - set in modern day etc - and it is only through nifty plot twists and characters that keep the attention that this gigantic mash-up works.
Occasionally it annoys, as with some diverse ethnic casting, subplots re lung transplants and romance of the brother Dylan. and mental home mooching and wallowing.
But once it returns to the house and Norman, and Norma of course, the spark is reignited.
