Well, since I have watched all of America’s Next Top Model, I moved on to Dexter, because iTunes just uploaded season two. Let me tell you, season two was just GREAT! If you haven’t seen Dexter, it is a show that is on Showtime normally. Well, I don’t get Showtime, so I have to download the episodes from iTunes.
I started watching Dexter, because the main character is played by Michael C. Hall who I like from a show called Six Feet Under. Six Feet Under is now completely over, but you can find it in its entirety on DVD. It is another great, although somewhat morbid show. Anyway, Michael C. Hall plays Dexter and I thought I’d check out his new role. I was really happy to find another great show to watch! Dexter is just your average serial killer/forensics expert who solves crimes by day and kills the bad guys by night. It is a bit gross in parts, but not really too scary nor too gross. It just sounds really gross, but it isn’t. And, I don’t like shows that are way too scary, so this one isn’t. It is suspenseful though. And, ironically enough, it is even amusing in parts.
Kudos have to go to Michael C. Hall, because he gives a stellar performance and he couldn’t be more different from his character on Six Feet Under. The entire cast is really pretty great and the writing is wonderful. There are some things that I never really expected and then they all fit into place nicely.
As with any show from Showtime or HBO, the show takes more liberties with language and nudity, but I really don’t care. If that kind of thing offends you, then you’ll probably be offended by this show. Whatever.
So, I finished watching season two and am now trying to finish up The Sopranos, season six. In case you are wondering, yes, I do watch too much TV, but I really do like good TV. I’m definitely not an anti-TV person. Anyway, if you like good TV, you should try to check out Dexter if you can find some way of watching it. It is just fabulous, dahling!
