except it isnt a spinoff
they signed the guy who did 6 ft under and dexter to stay at showtime.
derp

that is not even close to the same thing as a spinoff

I predict the show will star Micheal C Hall as a woman. Who is an oby/gyn. For dead women.

Dexter is the perfect example of a show that ran waaaaaaaay too long and is waaaaaaaaaay overrated.

\yes, yes, Season 4 and maybe 2

I agree, I got sick of the show because it was pretty much the same shiat every year, very repetitive.

Come on, guys. You're actually doing pretty well with this final season so far, but you're treading a very thin line. Go out on a high note; don't milk the cow any longer than necessary.

Keywork99: /best season was 4
//worst was 6


I still say 3 was the worst. It built a lot, yes, but it didn't have the same awesome factor as 1 and 2.  The fact that 4 was so awesome made up for it, though.  And I personally really liked 5 because it was hard to watch at times, but the story resonated with me and I cheered so hard for Dexter and Lumen.  Even 6 wasn't that bad - it could have been better, but as I suspected, it was largely there to set up 7 and 8.

I'd rate them: 4, 1, 2, 5, 7, 6, 3.  Not really sure where 8 fits, though it's good so far.  I suspect I won't much like the ending as I now have a pretty solid guess in my head, and that it won't be what I was hoping for.

I fell off mid-way through season 5 and haven't picked it back up yet.   4, 2, 1, 3 is my order though of seasons I've watched all the way through.  Glad to see someone else thought the Smits season was weak... the worst thing about it for me was, it seemed like they got to episode 12 and went "F*ck, it's episode 12, we have to wrap everything up.... just seemed like things were way too forced at the end to tie things up".

I agree.  However I think it is getting a little slower as the time goes on, or I am just getting used to the same story, different killings concept of the show.  Anything on Showtime is pretty good and expect that this show will be good for the first couple seasons like all the rest.

Breaking bad extended its own life as long as possible by having it's final season take place over two summers.

Showtime is owned by CBS so they will milk what they can any time they can...Look at how they picked up "Under the Dome" for a second season.  I would have thought they would have written it from start to finish for one season, since that was what it was billed as going in.  It hardly resembles the book as it is...now they are just going to totally rape it.

I wish that Dexter would have gotten rid of all the stupid side characters. The Quinn + Batista sideplots were dryer than burnt toast. I would have forgiven season 5-6 if they had just killed those characters off. Ugh.

There was an episode in season 6 where a police psychiatrist gives her the idea that she's in love with Dexter, and there's an interesting dream sequence or two, but that's it. I'm not sure why the writers felt the need to throw that one in there, but maybe some of the fans were into incest.

Season 7 was good; I liked how the different characters' story arcs were all woven together to a greater extent than had been done in previous ones. Also, there were a couple more hot blondes who got naked.

Season 8 has gotten off to a slow start - just not enough action up until the latest episode - but it's starting to get good.

The two actors were married for a while. Maybe that's what he's thinking of.

2013-07-31 04:32:27 AM  

Keywork99: Come on, guys. You're actually doing pretty well with this final season so far, but you're treading a very thin line


eh, I kind of get a worse impression of this season as it goes along. I guess I don't get the impression of an actual end-game in sight and whatever the writers do have in mind, it kind of feels like they're trying to very abruptly steer the show in whatever direction they have in mind. I guess I don't really buy the handwaving away of Deb being traumatized over Laguerta's death by trying to overly sell Dexter as some kind of Perfect Creature, nor do I buy the idea that Deb would immediately get over her loathing of Dexter even after saving him after her murder-suicide attempt.

I assume the end of show will revolve around the "Dexter's protege" plot that they previewed; that's not a bad idea, but I think I would be a bit more enthusiastic if they had picked a previously unrevealed character as that rich kid was way too obvious.

the AV Club was pretty spot on in their most recent episode review. Though they seem somewhat ardent that Dexter can't just "Get away" at the end of the series, though I don't disagree with their logic, I'm not really convinced that that ending would make the rest of the series feel somewhat pointless.
