Watch the First Six Minutes of 'Bates Motel'


Bates MotelSomething is definitely not right with Mother.

A&E’s new series Bates Motel debuts a week from today and they’ve released the first six minutes of the premiere episode.  The show tells the “mommy and me” origin story of Norman Bates and his mother, before she wound up in her rocking chair tomb.

It opens with Norman stumbling upon a bloody scene in the Bates household. When he tells his mother, she seems not all that surprised. The action then cuts to a car ride up to the Seafairer Hotel that feels a bit like the opening scene to The Shining. Could mommy have been the original psycho killer? Whatever the secrets, there’s something strange happening with this family.
