k0k0 The only new season worth watching would be the one with John Lithgow. Just because of John Lithgow.

Fathom Zero There were Seasons 4, 5, and 6?

k0k0 Dear God. I didn't even watch dexter last year because "What the fuck dex?" and I can tell this season is going to be so so much worse.

MetalMilitia Dexter and Deborah got married IRL

Can't say I blame him.

MetalMilitia I still think this season is at least as good the the rest. The whole Dexter-Miguel thing is one of the best sub-plots yet.

King Hadas Three episodes left in the season, Dexter/Miguel relationship is finally turning into something interesting but otherwise the show is dull as hell. It's like the characters have all devolved into 2-dimensional archetypes, I guess I could chalk it up to bad writing but I wonder about that. I understand one of the network channels is picking up the show, I wonder if there purposely softening it so it'll transfer more smoothly to basic Television.

I think Dexter is a serial killer who needs to understand a moral reason for killing people so as not to get caught, not because he has a conscience.

Spoilers!


He confesses that without Harry's code he wouldn't have a band of strict ethics to stop him frying in the chair. He still actually kills. We assume that the compulsion often overrides his enforced moral ethics, otherwise he'd.....simply give up wouldn't he? We know he misses crucial emotions that society would definately consider 'normal'

Spoilers!


I understand where you are coming from, though in terms of 'socially awkward' but I put this down to sloppy script and tense. I'm bored of being taken to the edge of the 'will he or won't he get caught?' storyline, because it leaves you exhausted to the point where you start thinking 'he can't get caught because the series is a hit' - I'm striving to see Dexter evolve, which Season 3 seems to portray. Miguel is an interesting character. See how it goes.

J. Tithonus Pednaud Ya, I'm having trouble getting into this season as well. Five episodes in and shit has yet to hit the fan.
Oct 28th, 2008 12:36 PM
Ant10708 Not getting itno season 3 to much. I feel its alot slower and less in on the line for Dexter. I loved season 2 but I feel that would of been a good plot for their last season and a nice conclusion not season 2.

King Hadas This new season feels pretty weak to me. Dexter seems less like a sociopathic killer and more like a socially awkward killer. When he goes off on one of his little tangents about how he can't feel like normal people I simply don't believe him anymore. Also they're way to many melodramatic subplots. Last night there was one involving Masuka that was so lame it probably would have felt more at home on an episode of Scrubs.

Spoilers!

MetalMilitia The new series just started and it's fantastic.
Dec 29th, 2006 05:32 AM
J. Tithonus Pednaud Great show. If paint-by-numbers predictable. Just got turned onto it. Now, I just hope Showtime (or HBO - whatever it is) doesn't drop the ball on this. Every show I get into is canceled before its time.

Carnivale, Dead Like Me, Love Monkey...

Sledge Hammer was awesome. Another batshit crazy show of the 80's. Great era for weird television.

FartinMowler The link to the Dexter shows is gone If anyone knows where I can find them again...please tell me.

Black Flag i feel like such a disappointment
Dec 20th, 2006 12:25 PM
Black Flag i'm sorry man
Dec 20th, 2006 12:21 PM
executioneer man i already made that joke in the book forum
Dec 20th, 2006 10:49 AM
Black Flag the best episode is when his annoying sister breaks in and presses that button to ruin everything!

(p.s. guys i'm talking about the cartoon Dexter's Laboratory. I don't know if this Dexter even has a sister or a lab!)
Dec 20th, 2006 01:35 AM
doopa I fucking LOVE this show.
Dec 18th, 2006 11:46 AM
MetalMilitia I really wanted to buy this on DVD for my girlfriend for christmas but apparently it's not out yet
Dec 18th, 2006 02:59 AM
Mockery Damn, why must the season be over???? A solid ending for the season, but damnit, I want more now. I don't wanna wait 'til late 2007 for a new season.
Dec 14th, 2006 12:02 PM
FartinMowler thanks to Metal for posting that link. I'm hooked after the first episode.
Dec 12th, 2006 12:03 PM
Mockery Yeah but I'm not gonna read the other books because I don't want to spoil the next seasons of the show as they could be based on the books just like this season was.

And I didn't know you liked Sledge Hammer. Awesome man. Any show involving a man who showers with his gun is badass in my book.

Trust me, I know what I'm doing
Dec 12th, 2006 10:11 AM
sspadowsky Fucking fantastic. I haven't been this into a show since Sledge Hammer, when I was, like, 11. I'm gonna be in the same boat- it's gonna be a bummer to see this season end. This is far and away the best show on TV.

On the bright side, Rog, there are two Dexter books out at the moment, and another one coming out in Summer 2007, so there's something to tide us all over until Season 2.

AChimp I've been watching this with Royal and a few other friends for the last few weeks. It's pretty sweet.
