Devouring "Dexter"

Really can't hype this up enough, I discovered it through (of all places) TV on Demand on Virgin on "Last chance" and have absolutely devoured the episodes since...I'm currently on episode 7, season 2...so only 5 episodes left (ulp)!

Just to give you an idea - Dexter is a US drama series based on the series of novels (which I will get hold of as soon as I have finished watching season 2) starting with "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay...it's set in modern day Miami, following the exploits of one Dexter Morgan (played by the incredibly tallented Michael C. Hall) who has a day job working for the Miami Metro Police Department as a blood spatter analyst at homicide scenes, and by night (in a delicious twist) is himself a vigilante serial killer...

I don't want to ruin it, but the plot is incredibly fast moving, has plenty for "'shippers" (get out your fandom dictionary) and is just (albeit tongue-in-cheek) just blood spattered and graphic enough to keep it dark and edgy...

Only problem is now I have to wait until September for season 3... ;)

Yeah that one did look good. Didn't they show it on Channel 4 some time last year? I never got round to watching it. Michael Hall was great in Six Feet Under so I imagined he'd be in good in this one too.

*Well* worth catching up on Ys...season two is almost breathless in it's plot progression...you *almost* feel like they had too many ideas to work with! Perhaps I need slow my viewing down......


Nah...! ;)

don't seem to be able to find it on Sky - guess I'll stick with waiting for 24 season 12

Only season two is left on there now, sorry Mr X - very annoying!
