Bates Motel Episode 5

On this week’s episode of the Bates Motel Podcast, Editor in Chief Ricky D and SOS Staff Editor Deepayan Sengupta sit down with SOS contributor Randy of Processed Media to discuss the fifth episode of the A&E show Bates Motel, titled “Ocean View”. Among the topics discussed are concerns about the lack of characterisation of the townspeople, the relationship between Norma Bates and Deputy Shelby, and absent characters whose return would be welcomed.

    Thanks, Deepayan. I do listen to The Walking Dead podcasts but they must be through The Televerse. But I’ll double check and make sure I get the rest of Bates Motel podcasts.
    Keep going with these BM (!) podcasts and we’ll see where we end up at the finale. My one prediction was that Dylan wouldn’t last the season but since the show has been renewed that could now change. I still think he’s more senstive, making him more vulnerable.

    Good podcast! This podcast doesn’t download automatically from iTunes with the other SoundonSight or The Televerse podcasts, does it?

    I didn’t know Ethan’s name too! Thanks for pointing it out.

    I think Dylan is more sensitive than Norma and Norman and actually feels guilt for what he’s done (running over the guy)even if it is revenge, than Norman and Norma, who appear to feel nothing for their killing. N+N just don’t want to get caught. Ilike Dylan but fear he’s not going to make it out of the first season alive.

    I guess Norma really does want to date Shelby (who wouldn’t – he’s hot!) but I had thought she was with him only to keep him close because he’s a cop, which could help her with her murder. And it has, because evidence against her is missing, right?!

    I had thought that Norman’s perception of his “girlfriend” was similar to Norma’s perception of her “boyfriend” – that in his mind he was in a relationship because he slept once with that girl. I still don’t think Norma has feelings for Shelby and is using him, but that could be a miperception on my part. Or maybe just because I’d like it better that way!

    And I initially thought that the sex slave story and a few other things were happening only in Norman’s mind, (that would be the LOST influence) but now it seems the show isn’t going in that direction. But maybe it will later.

      You’ll find this podcast on the same feed as our Walking Dead and Game of Thrones podcasts, which is a separate feed from the Sound on Sight and Televerse podcasts. If you’d like to subscribe through iTunes, the link in the post will take you straight to the appropriate feed. Thanks for listening!

      I’m also inclined to agree with you Re: Shelby and Norma. I’m getting the strong impression they’re both playing each other, in fact, and their endgames have yet to be revealed.
