Watched the first episode. Intriguing and well done. Vera Farmiga does a fine job of painting Norma Bates as a damaged woman and there's some surprisingly explicit imagery. The kid who plays Norman -- his name escapes me at the moment -- is good, but I would have liked a bit more of the tics and twitches Anthony Perkins made famous. But there's time for that later, I suppose.
Anyway, I think it was a solid start and am looking forward to the next episode.
