So, yesterday I had to call TWC to update my billing method w/new CCard expire date. While on the phone the Rep suggested some new TWC features, I cancelled a couple seasonal sports deals and got a Showtime promo, all for less than I was paying. So....

I had always wanted to see Dexter, having recognize Hall as an emerging personality on Six Feet Under but stopped watching sometime in the first season or so. So, the Showtime promo gave me OnDemand. That's about all I've done since... watch Dexter. Only got a cartoon synopsis of the first 3 seasons but the entire 4th.

Dexter is addictive. Haven't been able to do anything else.

Just finished watching the 4th season. It was like a reeeaaalllllllyyyyyy long movie.

Yeah, Lithgow was great for the part, really really annoying. And the last couple of episodes I was worried for Rita and the kids, then thought maybe the neighbor might come to the rescue. But after Trinity being dropped in the gulf stream I wasn't prepared for the ending. But it was appropriate.

I think the two older kids will go with relatives maybe with some bit parts during the season. Dexter will keep the baby, maybe his sister coming to live with him to help out. That would free up the apartment to return things to normal. Recall the final scene... the kid sitting in a pool of blood... for how long? A baby will touch something then put his hands in his mouth... a taste for blood. Dexter will have to teach his son those lessons his dad taught him. That could be interesting for a fast forward about ten or fifteen years. I don't think anyone will catch on to Dexter's deeds, the script just moves to fast and loose to worry about questions.

After just 24 hours, I'm hooked on Dexter, looking forward to the weekly agony of the next episode.

I can't wait for the new season!

"I've always been fascinated by serial killers.
Karla Homolka, Albert Fish, Jeffrey Dahmer, Zodiac Killer, Aileen Wuornos.
Not to glorify, but I find them quite interesting.
Anddddd I don't necessarily like the idea of a T.V. show highlighting a serial killer either,
but oddly enough, this show is quite addicting and somewhat entertaining. It's so easy to like this guy, and although
I sometimes have to remind myself it's only a movie...one still tends to feel guilty about it. Their website foo foo's
it all up tho, not disparaging, but colorful enough to remind one that yes, it IS still just a show...maybe to thwart
wannabes and copycats.
All in all we have Michael C Hall at his best, too bad 6 Ft Under was laid to rest."

Six Feet Under was amazing, and Dexter seasons 1 and 2 were VERY well done. However, season 3 was horrible. No suspense, no nothing. You knew who the killer was by the third episode, and it just didn't work. I'm a little nervous about watching a season four. I can imagine it'll follow along how they did season 3...

I agree that season 3 was a little slow but it was essential for character development. The relationship with Ramone was very important for the overall storyline and the development of Dexter as a person. It was also big for the development of Deborah.

Season 4 was the best season of the entire show. If you havent watched it, I highly suggest you do so. You will not be disappointed.

If you havent watched the first three seasons, you need to do so. There is no way a cartoon synopsis can come close to the actual show. I would recommend renting the DVDs. If you have Netflix, they had the shows on Instant Watch

I disagree about no one finding out about Dexter. This show is building towards Deborah being the one to find out Dexter's true identity. She has been getting closer and closer each season and she has also been developing each season as a detective. I believe the show will end with Deborah finding out the truth and arresting Dexter or maybe even killing him.

There really isnt any spoilers or anything I would consider a spoiler. They discuss whether or are going to have a villan next season and what the main themes are going to be.

They also discuss Michael C. Hall's cancer battle. He is in remission and it will not effect filming.
