    I noticed, though that when he snuck out of the house to meet them, that only the one seemed interested at all. The other three had "can we just get going already?" / "why are we wasting time with him" expressions on their faces.

    I'm expecting a mean girls revelation...suck him in with immediate (if limited) attention, gain his trust, then humiliate him publicly. As if Norma alone won't twist him enough.

    Thats what I expected too. And it might still happen. It may be they are just extra mean-mean girls with a particularly devious plan that takes an extended time frame to carry out. And for some reason I also expect that Norman or his mom will extract some particularly sweet revenge in turn.

    No need to burn that option in the premier. He was scooped up and then virtually abandoned for the party, but keep working the bait and set the hook deep. The more he naively trusts, the better the humiliation.

    And the greater the response when he reveals it to Mommy ;)

    BTW, I've had a thing for Vera Farmiga since UC: Under Cover...and she'll hit the 40+ list later this year. I don't feel guilty :)

    It seemed to me like the MOTHER killed her husband (Norman's father). She was so lackadaisical and almost smirking when Norman said whatever he said (the equivalent of "you've got to come quick!").

    The scene was SO DARK it was hard to see the pictures in the book.. I watched it originally walking on the treadmill on iPad mini… went back to orig recording on TV & wasn't much better!

    Don't get what the deal was with the injections at the end.

    I didn't think it was GREAT, but since we're coming close to the summer with far less new programming (though I've got a bunch saved), I'll watch at least one or two more.

    I also thought it was weird with all of the women going after him.

    I mostly only paid attention to the beginning credits, was there even a "based on characters created by Robert Bloch", or even a mention of Hitchcock, if some of the movie creations were used?

    I don't know about the opening credits, but Bloch was given credit during the end credits.

    Yeah, I'm in for this, my hunch is that they're in it for the long game and this will eventually happen.

    I don't know, but one of the drawings in the book showed a needle going into a girl's arm.
