Has anyone seen this yet? I'm hooked. Some of the actors are a little weak, but the main ones are pretty solid. It's entertaining, and has some good dark humor. Besides, I'm a sucker for anti-heroes.

I head an ad for this on the FilmSpotting PodCast and it sounded quite interesting. What exactly is it all about?

Dexter is a forensics specialist who moonlights as a serial killer. His sister is a cop on the same force, he has a girlfriend who has two young kids, and he's being toyed with by another serial killer. Lots of interesting predicaments arise. Me likee.

I think the series is really good. I sorta gave up on the new season of CSI and I definitely like Dexter better.

it's a really good book, too. I'm curious to see if they'll end the season the same way, since (other than creative stretching to make more episodes) it seems to follow pretty closely.

Been watching this show for a while actually. I honestly think it's the best show on TV right now. Also, good news for fans of the show, it's done so well that it's just been renewed for another season.

I've only seen the first episode but it was good. I guess I'll have to watch more.

Graaaah! The season finale is next week and it's killin me. Must. Know. What. Happens! What really sucks is that, after next week, I'll have to wait 'til late 2007 before they air any more new episodes.

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

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.

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

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!)

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.

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!

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.
