yeah on shows like csi, that's 100% of the premise, and nothing means poo from one episode to the next

also the writing on those shows were done by 3 year olds

on dexter its only about 30% of the premise, really more of a launching point for the real drama

its really not a show i would recommend to a csi fan because i hate explaining every thing

So, after reading through this thread, it sounds like this season isnt very good, but i have never watched this show before, and I am looking for some new shows to get into.

Should I check it out? Starting from season 1 of course.


Definitely. We complain about this season because Dexter itself set the bar so high. It really can't possibly live up to expectations. It's that good.

I don't think they will get together romantically. She may want to, but Dexter sees her as his sister. I DO think she will cover for him (she has to, right?, or how does the show go on?) which means she almost has to join in.

In the books she knows that Dex is a killer so there is plenty of material for them to work with in that regard. Ive been surprised it took them this long to work it in.

But if they start knocking boots I'm done.

Could you imagine Louis asking Doakes what he thinks of his video game?

Doakes: "How do you do the bitch slap in this game?"
Louis: "I'm sorry, this is meant to be both a crime fighting and a murder game. There's no 'bitch slap' in it."
Doakes: "Well you might wanna put it in because I'm about to bitch slap you to sleep if you don't get that computer out of my face!"

i was always kind of hoping that dex and doakes would come to some sort of mutual agreement. they weren't that different from each other after all.

I think she is not going to actually be involved in any of the killings, but I think she will "send fugers his way."

This way, she could give the justice that she has always wanted to give.

It will be interesting to see what happens. I just wonder if Dexter will carry out his normal ritual of dumping the body in the ocean after Deb has caught him.

I also wonder if he will lie to Deb and tell her it was just a one time thing and that he has never killed anyone before.

Also a question about the writing in the last episode:

Do you remember when the entire Miami law enforcement agency was standing behind Deb in SWAT gear during her press confrence, snipers and all?

Why the hell was there only one police officer with a long rifle, in regular uniform, on the roof of the skyscraperwhen Travis Marshall appeared? :confused:

I don't think he's dead. I think he just lost a few limbs and his tongue was cut out.
