    Bates Motel (is Jere Burns’ Abernathy perhaps creepier and more dangerous than Norman?)

  • RuPaul! Can’t believe Season 5 (thought it was Season 5 as I thought All Stars was S5 lol) has come to an end. So happy that Season 6 casting is underway!

    Team Jinkx! or Team Alaska!

    I haven’t watched 90210 in weeks. Which I guess I should watch seeing the finale is in a few weeks.

    I have a question for Bates Motel viewers. I have many episodes stored on my DVR and I was wondering if they were worth keeping. Is the show any good? I’ve watched maybe 3 episodes and haven’t gotten hooked yet, but does it get better as it goes along? Thanks!

    • My mom & I love Bates. It was a little slow at first, but they continue to answer questions u may have. The story keeps continuing & there is always something going on. I think it’s a really good show.

    • Stick with it. It definitely gets better (amps things up)

    • I think it’s a bizarre and entertaining show, but like you I’m not hooked, and at this point I wouldn’t cry if they cancelled it.
