Bar none, Dexter is the best show on TV right now and the second season promises to be just as much fun as the first one... I have to confess I was a little afraid of what was going to sustain the interest after the death of the ice truck killer but the first 2 episodes of the second season have reassured me in that department.


Funny, I identified him more as Batman than Superman. Operating as a vigilante but still doing what's right, that the system failed to do... Superman was more about dealing with things the cops couldn't handle, but Batman, he was about righting injustices...

And yes, freakin' fantastic show. I had been counting the days until last night. Wait. Frenchdoc referneces the first _two_ episodes of 2nd season? Didn't it just start last night?


Nope, Maggie, last night was the 2nd episode of the 2nd season.

I also love to see several actors from the defunct Oz in there.


Maggie, Batman works too. I was thinking Superman because of the father figures, which Batman doesn't have. But the vigilantism, the working at night, the utility belt---ok, Dexter keeps his tools in a leather pouch, but close enough---the cheerful facade that hides the darkness within. Definite Batman-Dexter parallels.


Where do you live? Here in the States, this week's episode is the first of the new season. Second episode doesn't air until next Sunday.

Note: I think I've already figured out how Dexter's going to get out of the discovery of his dumping ground.

And I want a bowling shirt like his.


I figure he'll just blame it on the ITK.

Sadly, I don't have Showtime. So now I either "find" the episodes online, or I wait for the DVDs again. What to do...

But I've been reading Lindsey's books, on which the show's based, and while they're not bad, they don't really have the same brilliance that Hall brings to the role. The book Dexter really is emotionless and inhuman, and the pretense is used more for comedy. It is, perhaps, more accurate for a real psychopath--but it's not as much fun to read, most of the time.
