According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch gossip columnist, MCH and JCarp are apparently being seen around and about spending time together again... I hope those two crazy kids work it out!

Motherfucker.

I haven't watched the last 2 seasons of this show. It just got too dumb for me and I decided to stop watching. Now that Showtime has released the first official still of the new season and they've announced Yvonne Strahovski will be on for a multi-episode arc I . . . just have to start watching again. LOL at Vulture's guess about Strahovski's arc though:

She'll play a "strong, independent woman" who helps Dexter and his colleagues with a few old cases — but Dexter thinks there's something she's not telling them! Is it that she's a secret murderer? If so, then we're predicting that she and Dexter will fall in murderer-love, but things won't work out, so Dexter will of course have to murder her, because that's how all guest appearances on this show end.


Heh.

Thanks for the links, hardy har.
After reading the new cast members, I dare say I'm looking forward to the new season. I've not been one to blast this show as much as some but last season was so embarrassingly bad, I've not given it another thought.
Until now.

Hi folks, I have a question....when season 7 starts will I be able to get a season pass on amazon (although I prefer amazon, itunes would be ok too I guess) for it like I have for Breaking Bad? I find that much less expensive than paying for more cable television that I would ever watch!

Hope I'm asking in the right place, but for anyone who has read the books, would it be a good idea to read them now after seeing all the episodes? Are the differences in the show and the book too jarring? I see Amazon has an omnibus version with 3 books in one and thought that might be a good purchase.

There are very significant differences between the books and series.

Personally, I thought the first book was good, the second book was decent, and the third book was total crap. I stopped reading after the third book, so I'm not sure how the rest of the series went.

Yes, that's the one.

I think Dexter is one of the rare cases in which the TV show tells a superior story than the novels.

Absolutely. I just finished the first book and I'm halfway through the second, which I like better. If I had read the books before seeing the series, I doubt very much that I would have watched.

Some odd similarities in a real life case in the news today. A former cop is slated for execution in Florida for 9 Murders. Seems his victims were all involved with drugs or dealers, and he felt he was doing the world a favor. He was in the Miami-Dade county area, and his name was Manuel Pardo. Gee, what's that seem awfully close to?

There was even a picture of him from the late 80s where he had a slight resemblance to Jimmy Smits.

So, I wonder if they're going to use lethal injection, or just wrap a wire around his neck?

An article that gets into why cable dramas since the "golden age" (Sopranos, Wire, et. al) haven't quite been able to live up to the greatness that pre-dated them. Dexter obviously included.

I was coming here to post that very article, Pillowfight. Thanks for sharing.

I think a lot of the problems of shows like Dexter could be solved if tptb on the show and at the parent network could agree that less is more. Giving their shows an end date like Breaking Bad, rather than just renewing them year after year like Dexter long after they burn out would do better service for it's legacy. Even though this season somewhat redeemed itself, we've still got one more to go and I think it's safe to say that Dexter has run about two or three seasons too long.

But let's not look at history with rose-colored glasses. The Sopranos was also guilty of over-staying it's welcome, as was 24 and The Wire. Everyone is still celebgrating Homeland on the coattails of it's recent Emmy wins, but the cracks are beginning to show in it's armor as we approach the end of it's second season.

I think Dexter is one of the rare cases in which the TV show tells a superior story than the novels.


On the whole, I agree. When the show was really good (seasons 1, 2 and 4), it far outclassed the novels. Cable TV has demonstrated that feature films may not be the best place to do a book series justice. Another great example of this is Justified, which has surpassed it's Elmore Leonard literary counterpart.

On an unrelated note but one that is telling of the times in which we are living, wondering if anyone saw this and has thoughts as to Dexter being the TV show poster child of our culture of violence?

I just read it on Tumblr! It was announced on the official Showtime Facebook.

EXCITING NEWS: Dexter will return for an eighth season on Sunday, June 30th at 9PM ET/PT, immediately followed by the series premiere of Ray Donovan at 10PM ET/PT. And Homeland will return for a third season on Sunday, September 29th at 9PM ET/PT, immediately followed by the series premiere of Masters of Sex at 10PM ET/PT. Only on Showtime Networks!

I'm fairly excited about getting Dexter back three months early, but it'll be weird watching it over summer! Wonder why they're totally redoing the schedule for its last season?

They're keen to point out though that it won't necessarily be the last season. It all boils down to 2 things: money, and Michael C Hall.

I'm sure giving the writers 3 less months in the "off-season" to think of story ideas will be great for the quality next season...

My thoughts exactly. The writing ALREADY feels rushed and/or contrived pretty often.

I hope Season 8 is the last one, otherwise the ending of season 7 will probably turn out to be nothing more than an easy way to wipe the slate clean. Deb's character is on the line here, I think it would be out of character for her to side with Dexter for several seasons.

Well, since this means that the show will start at the same time as True Blood on HBO, Dexter will lose me as a viewer for the first showing.

To launch their new show "Ray Donovan." Homeland will be used to launch "Masters of Sex" in the fall.
