Here’s a question? How the hell did Norman Bates get to be so “Psycho”? The new A&E series, “Bates Motel” answers this and much more. The modern prequel to the 1960 Hitchcock film, follows Norma Bates played and Vera Farmiga and her young son Norman, played by Freddie Highmore (genius casting), as they try to make a new start after the death of Norman’s father. The troubled twosome move to a small Oregon town where they open up the infamous Bates Motel.
