The house and motel both come with secrets of their own as does the new town which the Bates family now calls home. A modern re-imagining and prequel to the movie Psycho (1960).

Bates Motel: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Two cinematographers are credited for five episodes each in Season One: John Bartley (Lost) and Thomas Yatsko (Fringe). Information about the shooting format was not available, but both appearance and standard modern practice indicate digital photography. The image on Universal's two 1080p, VC-1/encoded Blu-rays superbly reproduces the cinematic feel that showrunners Cuse and Ehrin say they wanted for the program, which takes full advantage of the constant rain in the Pacific Northwest to help create a contemporary film noir style. The image is so consistently sharp and detailed that the rain usually registers, even though falling rain is one of the most difficult elements to photograph. Noise and distortion are entirely absent, blacks and contrast levels are appropriately set, and the colors run the gamut from the noticeably dull and dated wardrobe favored by Norma Bates to the flashier colors of the high school girls and the bright neon of the Bates Motel sign. The greens of the surrounding forest, which turns out to be an important location, are impressively verdant.


Bates Motel: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The bass extension on Bates Motel's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack reaches unusually far down for a TV show, starting with the throb of the motel's neon sign switching on during the brief title sequence. That same deep impact can be felt in numerous effects, including gunshots, heavy door slams and other kinds of impacts and subjective sounds associated with troubled psychological states. A number of specific environments have distinctive sonic signatures, including, for example, a nearly derelict ship that Norman and Dylan visit at one point, the high school halls, various forest locations and a kind of "factory" where Dylan works.

Dialogue is beautifully rendered, and the classic thriller-style score by Chris Bacon (Source Code) is one of the best I have heard on TV in a long time.
