    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!

    • Diz says:

      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.

    • andrewbowman55@msn.com says:

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

      The Voice
      Love me some DVR!

    • bobbie says:

      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.
