    My God, this show is spectacular. Please tell me I'm not the only one watching it.

    Obviously not...or it would have been cancelled
    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Re: Dexter

    I know I should probably get into Breaking Bad, Dexter, and Mad Men, but I probably won't any time soon. I'll likely wait until the series are over...and even then, I'll only watch them if they are 5 seasons or less.

    Re: Dexter

    I rent them when the seasons hit DVD. So I've seen seasons 1,2,3 but haven't seen any of season 4. Season 2 was kind of a dud, I thought. But it came back better with season 3.

    Season 4 is pretty damn oustanding so far. Right up there with season 1. Maybe better.

    Watch the pilot for Dexter and I guarantee you'll be hooked.

    Re: Dexter

    I've only seen season one and I was certainly impressed. Have not got around to watching any more of the series though.

    Breaking Bad is a show I keep meaning to watch as I've heard nothing but great things about it. And I am a huge Bryan Cranston fan. He's been excellent in literally every single thing I've ever seen him in.

    It's just so bloody addictive. I tend to rent a whole season and watch it a day or two.

    Re: Dexter

    Awesome show. I hadn't seen it until Bravo started showing season 1 last year, but was instantly hooked.
    Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.

    Re: Dexter

    I watch Dexter religiously and love it. The ending last night was very unexpected. Wow!

    Ang, I know you're also a 24 fan. I never watched it at all until my daughter (sorry, guys, she's now engaged) told me I'd love it. Her boyfriend (now fiance) has been lending us the DVDs. We're completely hooked and are now finishing season 3. Totally outstanding show. Might be my favourite hour-long drama program ever.

    It's about a sociopath who has to kill to satisfy his needs. But he lives by his Father's code and only kills people who have murdered others.

    24 is awesome, but the earlier seasons are much better than the later seasons. Starts really going downhill after season 4...

    Last year was alright though.

    I wasn't as blown away with the ending so much as I was with Dexter losing it an almost killing Lithgow's character in his own home. That was such an awesome scene and the whole episode last night might be the best in the entire series. They could take it so many places now...Deb knows who shot her.

    E4E, think of a story of a serial killer who is a CSI kind of guy who kills serial killers. Lots of gore and nudity (which may be why Ang likes it). Terrific show, with lots of plot twists.

    I had heard for a long time how amazing this show is, but never got around to watching any of it until a couple episodes this weekend. Now I'm hooked. I'll be busy watching the DVDs for the next while.

    I just ploughed through both seasons of BB and it's incredible. On the same level as The Sopranos and Mad Men for TV dramas, at least in my opinion. Between the first 2 seasons, there are 4 "holy ****!" moments that will leave your jaw on the floor. Cranston is amazing, the Walter White character goes through such a gradual transformation over 20 episodes that you barely even realize how far he's come until you re-watch the first episode.

    Very reminiscent of season one when they nonchalantly did the big reveal of the ice-truck killer right at the end of a show (of course that just turned out to be the first of many twists). Ever since then it's always in the back of my mind to expect the unexpected, cause that was a real jaw dropper.

    Good night of TV... Good GC game (Riders lose to boot!)... a new episode of Dexter... then for a nightcap, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Showcase!

    They have an absolutely great season going right now. I was expecting the show to start going downhill, but a combination of dick towel, cats in a wall, and 'Intervention!' have kept that show hilarious.

    The only thing I don't like about Dexter is that annoying girlfriend character of his, Rita. Super judgemental and lame.

    Trinity gets is next week. I can hardly wait to see how Dex does him in. I have a feeling we'll see a surprise of some kind.
