    Good and creepy first promo for Bates Motel’s new season. Can’t wait to see new season in March!

  2. So Fortitude is essentially Gracepoint, which was Broadchurch. Not to mention Top of the Lake. What’s with all the murders in small idyllic towns? The appeal is running extraordinarily thin.

    Disappointed about the delay in Broadchurch’s new season. But at least it IS coming back, unlike Gracepoint. But then Gracepoint was an almost scene-for-scene copy of Broadchurch, so I’m not surprised it wasn’t renewed (not to mention its being touted as a mini-series).

    Knowing A&E this will be Bates Motel’s last season. Oh and it will end on a cliffhanger!
