I was intrigued by the concept of Bates Motes, so setup a season pass. Big mistake, or at least it seems so to me. Vera Farmiga was, as expected, excellent and Freddie Highmore was solid too. Now to the down side, The pretty boys who play Norma's older son and the deputy sheriff, respectively, set my teeth on edge. The role of the older son was that of an insufferable sociopath and the actor playing the role and the guy who played the deputy look more like Broadway dancing boys than either tough guys who had been around or cops. I deleted my season pass about halfway through the second episode so if I missed something that might improve the series, such as the older son or the deputy getting killed off, somebody let me know.
