Apparently my new life involves a love triangle.
Great, the voices are back.
I have no words to describe how awesome Dexter is. Procured it on the intarweb after being tipped by a Barcelonan friend, and captivated ever since. Luckily my snapping up the show coincided more or less with my purchase of a big 40 inch LCD TV (which I can now finally put to use given that we have an apartment with a couch-to-wall distance of more than a few meters), and this show was made for it. It just looks gorgeous.
I used to watch some TV on the many plane flights of my work commute – mostly sticking to finishing all five seasons of Angel, interspersed with my DVD Buffy watching – but this show I specifically wait for to be home and able to watch it on the big screen. It’s just that good.
The story’s an interesting twist on the serial killer theme, and it’s thoroughly entertaining to be trapped in the mind of this drywitted psychopath. Every single actor in this show is excellent (And it’s fun to see Julie Benz in a non-vampire role, although she’s considerably more sexy as Darla than in this series). The storylines are well above par, and the writers do an amazing job at pulling off forcing you to like this character.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – ever since The Sopranos showed how good TV can be, we’ve been getting some excellent TV shows (no, I’m not counting Lost among those) that are showing that TV can be just as good a medium as movies.
Though Dexter really is among the best of that crop. I can’t wait for my next lunch break…
So, obviously this series is not on in Spain or Belgium. I’m not sure it ever will be, given its content. So, in a world gone entirely digital, do I have any legal way of watching this excellent show, or do their creators prefer that I miss it entirely instead ? Surely they want to reach their audience wherever it is… This is the kind of stuff I would gladly pay for.
