Bates Motel A&E
 
Anyone watch last night? Seems like it'll be on every night the rest of the week if anyone wants to catch it.

It's DVR'ed once I get off work I am watching it

Watched it and it was OK. I think the best thing to do is go into it not trying to relate it to Psycho and take it as a stand alone series.

I liked it. I might get into it almost as much as Breaking Bad.

Saw it and was shocked by what it allowed on TV these days. That was an 'R' rated movie. Extremely violent rape on Monday night TV. That's nuts. Even the commercials are 'R' rated. Over the line.

Saw part of it.....its a prequel but set in the modern day? huh...wha??

In watching the previews for it closely, I don't think that content is going to stop with the 1st episode.

That was my thought. This a prequel of the original. But modern day. Liked it.

Kind of strange how the clothes and hairstyles are old fashioned but the technology is modern. I really enjoyed it though. Can't wait for the next episode.

read an article on it that talked about it more as a "reinvisioning" as opposed to an actual prequel. Honor the original but be a different creature--kinda like the star trek reboot without the time travel.

Do you only get that channel? Do you have no functioning remote control?

No, yes?

Guess it's not over the line then.

Previews looked real good but havn't watched any of it.

A&E can come up with some pretty good horror shows like that one Bag of Bones with Pierce Brosnan.

havent watched Sons of Anarchy or Breaking Bad huh? Helll 24 pushed the limits of Network Cable, they showed crazy torture scenes on that show.


On premium cable that isnt HBO/Show/Max/Stars they can do pretty much anything but show vag, dick nipples and say the F word. Everything else is ok.

Pasta Giant Meatball 03-21-2013 05:13 PM

Shit, Starz shows slave horsecock all the damn time on Spartacus, heh.
