I held off on watching this one for a long time because a series based on "Psycho" didn't sound like it would be something I'd be interested in. However, I am currently watching the first season on Netflix, and I like it very much. It is a prequel (although set in modern times) that portrays how Norman Bates could have gotten to be the man that he was in the movie. It's not all blood and gore, or even your typical horror flick. The characters are developed very well, and there are sympathetic qualities in every major character in the show.
