Bates Motel (A&E)
Premieres: Monday, March 18 at 10/9c
A boy's best friend is his mother. From Lost's Carlton Cuse, the Psycho prequel series explores the formative years of young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and how his twisted relationship with his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) turned him into the infamous knife-wielding serial killer immortalized in Alfred Hitchcock's classic. Anything to erase the stench of the 1998 version is fine by us.
