Dexter Update

Looks like CTV has picked up this series to air on Sundays starting Feb. 17th, 2008.

I know that Gils didn’t enjoy the show very much, since he fell asleep in the first 15 minutes (see comments on Dexter post) of the show. But, if you are interested, they are showing the pilot episode on the date mentioned above. The 2 seasons have only 12 episodes each, so they have about half the episodes of a regular weekly series per season. Considering that, maybe CTV will be showing the 2 seasons back to back in one year. That way we’ll all be caught up for the 3rd season, when or if (due to the writers strike), it starts airing later this year.

Dexter

Dexter Season 1

During the Christmas holidays, on one of our dinner nights with friends, Lina and I became addicted to Dexter the Showtime series. Addiction may not be the right word; consumed by an obsessive and compulsive craving would describe it better. After dinner with Athena, Scott and Kuntheary we were invited over to Athena & Scott’s place to hang out and chat. That’s when Athena asked us if we had seen a TV show called Dexter. She gave us a brief intro to the show and the lead character. Which, of course, inevitably leads us into watching the show (because she just happens to have the dvd box set of the first season). We watched the first two episodes and were instantly hooked.

It’s about Dexter Morgan, a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Police homicide department forensics who also happens to be a serial killer that kills other serial killers. It’s based on a novel by Jeff Lindsay called Darkly Dreaming Dexter. There is a major antagonist/rival as the main arc for the season, but each episode has it’s own separate story as well.

If you have a chance, check it out: Find a friend with the boxset or watch it on Movie Central MC4.

We’ve also hooked Lindz and Vu onto this show. Look what you started Athena 🙂
