A&E THINKS A GRAPHIC RAPE SCENE IS RATED AS APPROPRIATE FOR 14-YEAR-OLDS
This season’s serial-killer fixation continues with the recent debut of Bates Motel on the once-classy A&E network. Bates Motel explores the formative teen years of Psycho’s Norman Bates… but though the subject matter clearly signals that this is going to be a violent series, A&E thinks it’s just fine for your kids.
The series premiere featured a graphic rape, which the network deemed appropriate for viewers as young as 14!
