Here's an all-too-brief, but fun, online interview of MCH from the Knoxville News Sentinel. Great camera perspective.

Here's a funny post on craigslist.
Preview for season 2 here and manic recap of season 1 here.

From article I linked to in the spoiler thread: The first-season DVD is being released Aug. 21, and the third Dexter book is being published Sept. 18.

I first saw that as a tiny little thumbnail on the Showtime site, and I couldn't even tell that it was him.

Am I high, or is that S 2 poster way too air-brushed. It kind of makes me . . . cringe.

I thought the poster was hyper-detailed...every bit of stubble, the glistening skin - a lot like the way the show is shot so vividly. That tight-lipped, big-eyed, almost demented smile creeped me a little bit.

Yet and still...cute and hot!

He looks really young in that shot. It looks a bit odd. Maybe it's supposed to.

Here's an article I found on Yahoo about the show and books.

Dexter creator grasps life's charades
By DAVID FISCHER, Associated Press Writer

Jeff Lindsay doesn't seem like the kind of guy whose mind could give birth to a serial killer.

The soft-spoken, middle-aged author lives in a southwest Florida community with his wife and three daughters. He has a backyard pool and a fishing boat tied up to his dock.

But when Lindsay came to the conclusion that "serial murder isn't always a bad thing," he created the character Dexter Morgan, a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami-Dade Police Department who hunts and kills criminals in his spare time.

Btw, anyone know if S2 will be 'real-time' on iTunes, so those of us without Showtime can watch it a day or two later? I'd hate to have to wait for the DVDs again.

Probably not since they're not doing it for Weeds, which is currently on the air. I think iTunes added Weeds Season 2 in like late April so that was a 8 month gap between the first episode of season 2 aired on Showtime and when it was added to iTunes. The best bet is to probably subscribe to Showtime or you may be able to obtain the episodes through other means which I won't get into. Lol. (The first two episodes have been leaked online though :) Just google leaked Dexter episodes).

I'm trying to avoid giving Comcast even more of my money since I already feel they're ripping me off. Hee. The new season doesn't start until late September though right? The first two episodes of Season 2 aren't online, are they? I already own S1 on DVD, which is how I got hooked.

I think so. That pic looks like it could be on a box of farina. Seriously, check out all the 1950s era wholesome imagery next time you're in your supermarket grains aisle. Creepy kids galore.

'Dexter' back for second season

The blazing morning sun promises another triple-digit day, and inside Stage 16 at Sunset Gower Studios, things already have heated up. Michael C. Hall still hasn't broken a sweat, though, as he moves with steely quickness in a pivotal scene for Showtime's Dexter, in which he plays a blood analysis expert for Miami's finest who spends his off-hours offing bad guys.

I just got back from LA and they also have this great Dexter billboard,, promoting Season 2 at Hollywood and Highland, with the 'America's Favorite Serial Killer' tagline.

Dexter is spammed all over LA. The Billboard is outside my office as well. (Makes for good watching whenever you need a break...)

They also have him covering walls of buildings with tons of tiny pics of Michael C. Hall. It's awesome.

I do, however, find the picture they chose a little weird. As others have said, MCH looks really young and so not...dark.

Here is a link to scans of the new TVGuide with Dexter in it.

Harry, in the background like a ghost.

Julie Benz is so skinny. I think this is good casting because Dexter sees Rita as broken, and with Julie being so small and feminine, it comes across as submissive.

The more I look at that scan the more it seems like they merged Michael C. Hall's face with John Krasinski's (Jim from The Office). There's no way MCH looks like that (no matter how he contorts his face) without a good deal of photoshop.

If people are living in Chicago, I heard on the radio that for promotion of Dexter the Buckingham Fountain is going to be filled with "blood" or red water tomorrow. Is there anything going on in other people's cities?
