The only good news is that it's not exactly crawling with diversity. The hivemind entertainment geniuses at Netflix make up for that of course by positing the show's central theme on a fundamentally anti-white message (guess what the villains look like?).
And yes, the vermin at the New York Times like it :
"An Added Helping of Murder"
From the article :
"There’s not a lot going on in “Bates Motel” — a couple of murder mysteries, the slowly evolving picture of Norman’s true nature — and there’s no guarantee that the show will be able to keep its delicate balance of humor and spookiness, without pushing Norma and Norman into caricature. For now, though, it’s inherited the “Dexter” mantle as the serial-killer show to watch."A show this bad says a lot about the decline of a civilization. It is pointless, mindless, messageless make-work busytime for morons who've been torn from the cocoon of their identities by evil forces behind the velvet curtain.
More shows about ancient Rome or the period leading up to WW2 should be forced on American viewers Clockwork Orange-style, eyelids held back with safety pins and all.
