What's new on the box tonight: ---

Bates Motel (A&E) Season Premiere: Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) has a sassy new hairdo, a successful (for now) motel, and a son who’s at the midpoint between petulant teenager and blackout serial killer—welcome to Season 2! Norman (Freddie Highmore) has taken the murder of his sexy teacher hard, whether he did it or not, and there’s plenty more going down in White Pines Bay: His crush Bradley (Nicola Peltz) has gone off the deep end over her father’s death; his brother, Dylan (Max Thieriot), is up to his neck in the local weed trade; and Norma just wants to stop the damned highway overpass project from putting her out of business (murder, drugs, love triangles, commercial zoning disputes, Bates Motel has it all). Stick around for Chloe Sevigny’s Those Who Kill afterwards—it’s not great, but it’s important to support the handful of original dramas in A&E’s ocean of crap reality shows.
