This one isn’t so much a review, but a commendation to what I have recently discovered to be a simply wonderful children’s television series that could still appeal to all ages.

It is from this Psycho core that Bates Motel stems its roots, branching simultaneously backwards as well as forwards because this major creep trip of a show is a contemporary prequel. This was actually a surprise for me, I can’t say I was expecting Norman Bates to own an iPhone but I do believe it gave the story a new lease of life. I can’t recall ever having come across one before…if anyone else has then let me know!

Starting up this blog was a hopeful venture for me, I wanted somewhere to talk about all the amazing television shows I find without bugging my family constantly.
