It would probably look too sketchy for us after the show

Sketchy? What does that mean?

It's a classic movie and worth seeing on it's own though too. Norman is so creepy he just gives you this sense of discomfort when he talks to people either in the movie or the tv show. I like how in both, Norman is so dangerous but he is a horrible liar and stumbles through awkward questioning! He stutters. But talking to soon to be victims, you feel like the person needs to get away before he flies off the handle!

I don't have movie or anything that I can rent it since the movie was so old.. But when I finally saw it on some store that I brought for like 3 bucks.. But honestly, I wish that I can watch it sooner..

Not necessarily. Like I said, I read all about it. And I remember my parents talking about it. I saw the attraction at Universal multiple times lol.

And the promos are what made me interested. Before i knew it was based not he movies I didnt really understand the concept and what was happening. once I heard it was based on the movie it made a lot more sense. lol.

I don't think it's necessary to watch the movie at all imo. I know I won't watch it. The show stands on its own.

Even tho it still will critical in no matter what bec it still part of the original movie.. Some can't stand it on own and some need to depend on it even tho they do following it up until the mother's death..

Oh I miss this show so much. I love the movie Psycho and I was skeptical because of Freddie Highmore. I knew he was a great actor, I wasn't sure if he could pull off being Norman, because Anthony Perkins OWNS that role, but he blew me away honestly. Freddie was so good in this series. You couldn't help but feel bad for Norman, even when you didn't want too and Max was my favorite. I loved Dylan and Vera was OTT good as Norma. I really miss this show.

Plus my favorite, Wilson Bethel had a cameo in this. Gotta shout him out.

Yep, I have rewatched all of Wade and Zoe's scenes a couple of times over the last few weeks. Just gets better every time. I love Wade and Zoe and Wilson Bethel is my absolute favorite.

He appeared in 3x06. I know he shared scenes with Vera. I just remember being like "OMG, It's Wade Kinsella" when he showed up.

This was one of their scenes.

oh yeah i slightly remember now.

Z/W were great in season 1 and 2 but then after the cheating I kind of lost interest. And I hated Joel, he sucked up way too much time in season 3.

I was disappointed with the cheating, but the relationship wasn't really sturdy to begin with. Zoe was still emotionally cheating with George pretty much the whole time. Then you have Wade letting his insecurities get the best of him. There really are no excuses, but at least both admitted that each brought problems to the table that eventually sank the relationship. And as far as Wade goes, I love him. He's my favorite character and seeing him grow from his mistakes and try his best to rectify things, made me really root for him to earn back her heart. As for Joel, he sucked (WTH were the writers thinking? and Vivian, wheww don't even get me started. SHE WAS WORSE.) At least they made up for it in Season 4 and Wade and Zoe finally got on the same page with their feelings and their relationship, got married and had a baby. I couldn't have been happier, but yeah, Season 3 was painful for W/Z shippers.

Yeah, I don't remember too much about Wilson's character in Bates Motel. I just knew I was excited to see him.

yeah they both made mistakes and i liked wade's growth too.

i know rachel was pregnant in season 4 and i hate to say it but that sort of made things a bit awkward for me with their scenes. i felt like the pregnancy was forced. i also didnt like having them get married in the hospital that way, i feel like they could have done a better job there.

but wont complain as i got my endgame
