    "Bates Motel is a television series that serves as the prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece thriller, Psycho. The cast seems to have been carefully selected and the actors do a fine job of presenting their characters. The show is often quite suspenseful, sometimes gripping and in the end mildly unsettling. "

    "Pretty Little Liars isn't much of a thriller to me. The plot and acting plays like more of a Drama series. Story is mediocre but the eye candy in this show helps with the lack of plot."
