  • Dexter

    If you've watched Showtime recently, you would have seen, Dexter, well at least it's trailers. It starts October, and I don't think thats a coincidence lol. But it's basically about a guy who's a paramedic (I think, if not, what's he again?) by day and a serial killer at night. And the real twist or catch, I should say, is that he investigates his own murders. Now how cool is that?!

      Sounds interesting.

      Between this show, Masters of Horror and Weeds, I think I have an excuse to get Showtime.
      A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

        Dexter is a forensic scientist ala CSI. Here is a pretty good explanation of the book it was based off (ripped from the offical site) but the series differes abit.

        DEXTER is based on the compelling novel "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay, a South Florida native. Orphaned at the age of four and harboring a traumatic secret, Dexter is adopted by a police officer who recognizes Dexter's homicidal tendencies and guides his son to channel his gruesome passion for human vivisection in a constructive way - by killing those heinous perpetrators that are above the law or who have slipped through the cracks of justice. A respected member of the police force, a perfect gentleman and a man with a soft spot for children, it's hard not to like Dexter. Although his drive to kill is unflinching, he struggles to emulate normal emotions he doesn't feel, and to keep up his appearance as a caring, socially responsible human being.

          Cool! I didnt know they made it into a series.

          I have never done drugs and I never will. I was even the best student in the D.A.R.E. program back in the 80s.

            Did anyone get a chance to check this out? It was friggin brilliant! I have read both the books and it was pretty much unedited. If anyone doesn't have Showtime and wants to check it out I saw an ad for their free preview weekend promo. This weekend and next weekend everyone should be able to get Showtime.

              I saw it and love it ! If the season is as good as it's being set up to be, I can't wait till next week. Showtime is great with shows like Dexter and Weeds. Anyone know when the next season of MOH is going to start ?

                  spoilers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!







                  am i mistaken or at the end of the first show were they trying to imply that HE was the real killer, or were they trying to say he was planning on copying him?




                  end spoilers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      I thought it was pretty clear that the hooker killer with the refrigerated truck broke into Dexters house, learned abunch of stuff about him and is now going to fuck with him.

                        Why Dexter's Lab will now jump from Cartoon Network to Showtime?

                          The show is so unique because we get to see it from both points of view. The first episode was full of eccentric, colorful characters. Dexter lives two different lives .... to his co-workers and family he is a like a "living superhero" that is out to save the world. He is actually out to save the world in his own distorted way....someone has to die just as long as it isn't him. Dexter is easy to root for.....he also has many desirable qualities. I heard that Showtime is running a promotion from (October 6 - 13). The first three episodes will be shown during that time.

                            I just got done watching the first episode. I'm watching it again on my comp and capturing random screencaps. I'm looking forward to a new avatar soon.

                            By the way, I think it's a great show. I have showtime and plan on watching episodes 2 & 3 soon on "on demand"

                            I agree with DeadHeads answer to the Spoiler question.

                              do you have the ep for download? I just purchased the book on amazon since Im going to have to wait for this one. Inner narration for me is awesome when it comes to a character like Dexter.
