Bates Motel: Season One review

'It's not like my mother is a maniac or a raving thing. She just goes a little mad sometimes'

While this TV drama about the formative years of a young Norman Bates naturally owes a great debt to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, it's really far more of a spiritual sibling to David Lynch's legendary Twin Peaks. As for this two-disc Blu-ray set – the show's stylish cinematography holds up very well, with each hi-def platter hosting five richly-detailed 1.78:1 1080p encodes. Aiding these are classy DTS-HD MA 5.1 mixes that add plenty of atmosphere. Extras take the form of deleted scenes and a 50-minute Q&A with the main cast and crew.
