Absolutely amazing. One of the best episodes of the entire series, if not the best, and a great rendition.

Psycho's obviously untouchable but Bates is its own thing and did a PHENOMENAL job as well. The one small critique that I do have for the TV show is that it didn't create a more horror-based soundtrack backdrop during Sam's shower scene.

That was its prime chance to show that it indeed could succeed at the truly horror genre. As a tragic drama series though its truly approaching masterpiece-level in this final season.

Nice change half way through the vid! Great twist on the classic scene. And killing Sam fits the show so much more. Overall very impressed. Now bloody bring back Romero next ep!! 😉

You know why Norman killed Sam instead of Marion. Sams got no Guts!

So this is no longer even a prequel to the movies it's just is own thing.

I don't know…but Sam's death kind of made me sadder than Marion's death in the original.  I . 

A&E really seems like it has just given up on Bates Motel altogether.  I mean the lack of promotion, and no repeats of the most recent episode…is really pretty lame.

This is really awesome!!! Hope you do more Psycho/Bates Motel side by side edits like this. I loved it!

Both had their own execution & both succeed in their execution. Honestly, Bates Motel is a good example of a re-telling done right, unlike most remakes these days & also unlike the 90's remake of Psycho by Gus Van Sant. That was just a disaster.

Well of course it was Norman who did the killing, not norma! She wouldn't even harm a fly!

Thank you for posting this. This was great. I liked how you juxtaposed the curtain pulls. Do you anticipate doing any more of these comparison videos should you see another similarity? Somebody put up a comparison video showing Norma yelling at Norman to get out of the car and Madeleine yelling at Norman to get out of the truck.

love psycho and Bates motel equally. I'm gonna miss this show. I like that they switched it up and plus, Bates motel gave us more Norma Bates than all of the movies put together. Norma and Norman had a creepy, magical connection.

Is the song at 2:59 called "crying" and sung by Roy Orbison? Because it sounds different here.. 🙂

I stopped watching Bates Motel before this scene. Why did he kill a man? Was it an accident? Did he have a personal reason for it?

The show, actors & writers are so talented & the show is so gripping & entertaining! But as far as I'm concerned the writers of Bates motel completely ruined the shower scene! It was the most iconic scene in Psycho & they just butchered the shit out of it! There are just some things that shouldn't be changed! It's such a shame!

I absolutely loved this episode. I actually think Rihanna did a great job, considering she's a musician and not an actress

The fifth season of bates motel is very important for psycho because it reprease the clsssical movie from hitchcook in Norman's point of view. Star Wars Rebels season 5 it will be reprease rogue one and Trilogy original of star wars with Ezra and Sabine's pov

Sam didn’t even try to protect himself. Maybe he wanted to die.
