Dexter is creepy!

There was also the more ridiculous and hilarious scene earlier in the season when Dexter is chasing plastic wrap man and has to choke him out before he rounds the corner. It's getting to the point that it's more luck and the grace of the writer's pen than skill or discipline that keeps Dexter from going to jail.

That's kind of been the point for several seasons. The more Dexter tries to be normal, the sloppier he gets, and the more inevitable his exposure becomes.

Except it's getting to the point that his exposure could only happen in the series finale. The show is overusing this as a plot device and just sucking all the tension out. Perhaps it's inevitable for this kind of show. It works for a few seasons but eventually runs out of steam.

Once a season seems all right for that kind of situation. Seems like sis should just figure it out by now.

Just started watching season 1 the other day on Netflix. I think Dexter is funny! would be a better thread title. The small bits of humor thrown into the show are absolutely hillarious. I had to pause the show because I was laughing too hard to keep track of what was happening after the scene where

Spoiler:

he tries to go down on Rita while watching Terms of Endearment

I also just finished episode 8 and OH f*ckING SNAP. Blew my puny mind.

It's back tonight!

Yes, it was. Not convinced Collin Hanks is a great actor, so we'll see how his part develops.

I like him as the straight man in that cop show.

Never seen a woman so satisfied to give a BJ. Except, you know, in porn.

Sorry to hear that.

I know.

I don't remember last time that Dexter made me laugh, so Hammer time was a good sign for this season.

sho.com has the first episode of the season available to stream for free. The only downside is that it's a censored version, so some of Debra's dialog is bleeped and there are blurred out boobs.

I would consider subscribing to a steam-only showtime, but you can't. You have to order it as part of your cable/dish package.

Blurred out boobs?!?!

We know that Olmos is a pretty good actor. Be interesting to see where this goes.

I hope it's not the "Dexter makes a new friend then has to kill them" plot, but that does seem to be where things end up on this show.

Maybe they'll swap it: Dexter kills someone and then has to become their best friend.

Somebody, hire that man!

I haven't laughed that hard at the show in a long while... and they got me both times with that one.

Well, that and the totally deadpan "Shutup Dexter."

Hm... I don't trust that new girl working with Vince. Hell the fact that she's going on a date with him makes her suspicious.

Ouch. Dexter.

The darkness has taken him... don't like where this is going.

Man this show is good.

I'm starting to think Deb is going to find out what's going on at the end of the season. Just seems like we're having all these brother/sister things happening.

Also, Laguerta is still a bitch. And now a criminal.

EDIT: And damn is no one else watching?

I'm following Dexter this year, just not very enthusiastically. I hate what is going on with Quinn and Batiste. And Dexter himself seems crazier than he's ever been.

His psychotic breaks are becoming more and more extreme. It pleased me to see his brother's personality express himself so dramatically, beginning with his impulsive sex and gun theft, culminating in the murder of the pot grower. I'm hoping that episode turns out to be the most influential of the season. It is the truly crazy sh*t that winds up in serial killers being caught.

I'm pretty turned off to the plot this season. Every time Olmos is on the screen, I expect him to start growling about frakkin' Cyclons.

Oh wow! Just watched 6x09, "Get Gellar" from two weekends ago.

Spoiler:

Travis is the killer! Adama is a dark passenger!

That was an awesome ending. Guess we'll watch the next one now. Can't wait for Sun.

Anybody else thing we're heading towards Deb discovering Dexter? Or her psychiatrist suggesting something? Now that she knows Dexter was brother to the Ice Truck Killer...

The whole Deb in love with Dexter thing was kind of ridiculous. It came out of nowhere and after all her denials, her sudden acceptance of it was jarringly out of place.

But hooray for Deb finally seeing Dexter do the deed!

Remember Dexter's daydreams about what would happen if Deb ever found out he was the Bay Harbor Butcher? I remember in one of them, she just silently shoots him in the head.

Wow.

Spoiler:

Six seasons for what Deb knew in the first book.

Hey look who's a smart guy.

Great season.

Yeah the attraction stuff is a little odd. Oh silly psychiatrists. But otherwise, really enjoyed this year. Hell Dexter even called the cops once, when deadly chemical weapons were involved... that's what my wife is screaming at the TV almost every other episode: Dexter, just call the cops! So he finally did it.

Spoiler:

I'm thinking that Deb doesn't report Travis's murder, whether she finds out about just how many people Dexter has killed, or if she thinks that this is an isolated incident I'm not sure. Part of me wants to have Deb find out just how many people Dexter has killed over the years, just to see if that's a deal breaker. She's already shown a willingness to let some crimes go, the killing of the kidnappers last season, the call girls death this season...

Intern boy seems to be turning out to be next seasons killer, and maybe next season Deb figures out that LaGuerta is being nice to her because she has LaGuertas covering up and attempts to close the investigation to hang over her, and using it to get her fired to get a promotion is exactly what LaGuerta would do (which is why she thinks Deb will do it).

edit spoiler text added.

What I don't get about the Psychologist is that what sort of shrink encourages that sort of behavior?

Well, that was certainly a season finale. My opinion:

How so? IMHO I was worried after last season, but thought this season was great.

Spoiler:

The whole "Deb's in love with Dexter so she obviously won't turn him in even though she caught him in the act" thing just really doesn't sit well with me. I mean, that's obviously what's going to happen, right?

If I'm wrong, then I'll recant my shark jump statement :-)
