Killer good TV

Do you watch Dexter? I love it. Yeah, it's kind of grisly, but it's also really good. Based on Jeff Lindsay's popular Dexter novels, this show currently keeps the crown for twisted, dark comedy, outlandish anti-hero good TV shit.

I loved Michael C. Hall on Six Feet Under, and this show inverst his persona on that show. There, it was his job to comfort the grieving. In Dexter, it's his job to, well, create the grieving by killing people. Yeah, yeah, another sympathetic serial-killer mystery. Yawn. But it's just so good! Granted, it's not for everyone. But I think you'd be shocked by how much you like it if you give it a try.

Last season, the plot very true to Lindsay's novel, but this year I guess the TV show is going to go its own way. As added bonuses? It's got Gloria and Morales from Oz! (I guess Showtime is raiding the tombs of HBO shows to stock their casts.) And a Carradine joins the cast this year. Not the Kung Fu one. The other one.

I've recently begun to watch Dexter, I'm on episode 8. It's pretty compelling. Dexter is funny, too.

Hey cam! How've you been? Glad you're digging the show. Dex is funny in a twisted way. I love Michael C. Hall, too.
