The outside of the Bates house is extremely small. The front porch is no more than 10 feet wide, and the whole house less than 25 feet wide, and perhaps 30 feet deep. (This is about the size of 4 of their hotel rooms.) And yet many of the rooms inside the house are much larger than this. The master bedroom alone is at least 30'x30', and it is just one room on the upper hallway, that includes a vaulted stairway. See more »

When I moved here, no one prepared me for the colossal, frickin' face-dive off a cliff that living in this crazy town really is!

Names in the main credits have one letter (in each part of the name) in blue neon, like the Bates Motel sign. The letter is usually at or near the middle of the name. See more »
Alfred Hitchcock (Psycho 1960) was a suspenseful and frightening film about Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) and his dead Mother. The Bates Motel TV SHOW takes the story to a whole new level. It it is a prequel to the movie, about Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother, Norma Louise Bates (Vera Farmiga). Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga give an excellent performance in their roles. There are many other added features to the show including characters that are connected to the Bates family. I would recommend watching this show if you haven't seen it yet. Please see it from the beginning. There are many new twists in the story. I believe any Alfred Hitchcock fan would be excited to see this show. If you are a horror fan, watch this upcoming season!
