Bates Motel: Season 1
Mom Norma (Vera Farmiga) and son Norman (Freddie Highmore) open the Bates Motel, and it’s soon apparent from where the kid will eventually get his Psycho motivation (spoiler: Mom is batshit loony). One of the best series of 2013. (Universal)

The Bling Ring
The true-ish story of Hollywood teens (including one played by Taissa Farmiga—Vera’s little sis!) who robbed celebrities of more than $3 million and, even smarter, bragged about it and got caught. And now they’re famous. Hmmm. (StudioCanal)

Nashville: Season 1
Drama! Sequins! Country music! Two outta three ain’t bad: A country queen (Connie Britton) faces a tiny, tiny upstart challenger for her crown (tiny, tiny Hayden Panettiere) and a whole lot more, occasionally finding time to sing. (ABC Studios)

Showgirls 2: Penny’s From Heaven
Las Vegas stripper Penny Slot (Rena Riffel) sets out to become a star dancer on a TV show in the Showgirls parody sequel no one asked for and yet helped fund on Kickstarter. Lessons: Fame costs, and no good can come of Kickstarter. (MVD)

World War Z
A good-lookin’ hippie (Brad Pitt) and his family escape a worldwide zombie outbreak and reluctantly team with the military to find the source in order to create a vaccine—but is it too late for the planet? Vaccine Kickstarter! (Paramount)
