Bates Motel Season 2, Episode 8 Review: “Meltdown”

“Meltdown” is a surprisingly apt title for this week’s episode of Bates Motel. Multiple characters have meltdowns and the overall tone of the episode is one of suspense and intensity. In a lot of ways, this may be my favo...

Bates Motel Season 2, Episode 7 Review: “Presumed Innocent”

I have to give it up to Freddie Highmore. He completely brought his A game to this episode of Bates Motel, and I’ve seen enough police procedural dramas to say that with certainty. Highmore is able to have the red face an...

Over the next two weeks, I plan to go back and re-watch the first seasons of both Bates Motel and Hannibal. Since I go through a lot of television series during a given year, it’s hard to remember the small details from everyth...
