Dexter - Series 8 now done (US). It was the last series apparently.

Recommended Posts

Anybody else watched the second episode yet?

Yeah, it's very good. The paring of Dexter with the serial killer is going places, and I'm looking forward to how it develops.

I liked the fact he got the whole episode to stalk his latest victim, unlike the pilot in which the build up to the killings was glossed over. Hopefully future episodes will be similar and he'll commit one murder a week.

This is exactly what I don't want to happen.

Aye, it'd get a bit "murder of the week".

I'm watching Ep 2 tonight, after being massively impressed by the first one. Hopefully it's the same quality.

Yeah, the second episode was pretty weak. There needs to be more happening than him killing someone after spending the episode moralising about it. The serial killer plot is a bit weak, it has a Nip/Tuck feel to it but hopefully it’ll pick up and Dexter and the Ice Truck guy start some form of Serial Killer duel. The potential is still there and Darla and the sister are great but ep 2 didn’t come close to ep 1.

I thought the same until the last 15 minutes anyway. Picked up a great deal then IMO.

Just watched ep 1, its good. Didn't Harris toy with the idea of Lector being hunted by a serial killer who just hunts serial killers a few years back ? Also his sister looks like Bauers daughter, and the LT looks like the Dr in OZ..........I hope Ryan O'Reilly has a hilarious cameo.

Just watched the first one. Definite one to subscribe to. Makes up for me being disapointed with Weeds :ph34r:

I'll rephrase my earlier question.

Where can i download this?

Learn the magic of RSS: http://tvrss.net

What does RSS actually mean ? Is it like setting your PC to download stuff like a VCR ?

If you like, not a bad simile. It's a page format designed for summarising sites so that a computer can read them. It stands for Rich Site Summary, although laterly it's been referred to as "Really Simple Syndication".

When you subscribe to an RSS feed you'll see a number of articles which related to the content on that site, so in tvrss.net each article is an episode with a link to the torrent on mininova. I read all my RSS feeds in Opera and that displays them like emails. Once you've read an article you mark it as read. Simple.

In firefox you have "livemarks" which are pretty good but don't keep an archive. Click on the little RSS logo in either the address bar or down on the RHS in the status bar to subscribe to one.

IE7 gets RSS support. Don't know what it's like though.

Episode 2 was like a toned down version of epsiode 1. Still compelling though and potentially the cream of the crop of the new US tv season.

Makes up for me being disapointed with Weeds :angry:

:ph34r:

Weeds, although not as funny as season 1, is essential viewing. Such a well written show.

Nice twist in ep 3.

But I thought he looked hilarious as his younger self in those flashbacks in that ep.

Interesting stuff starting to happen with that black cop too.

Teaser for next week is intriguing without giving too much away (IMO) too.

Agree, agree agree, agree.

Building nicely so far.

Anyone laughing along thinking, I really shouldnt be.

Pitches the comedy on the right side of dark imo.

Anyone know how well this is doing in the States then? Cos it deserves to be a big show.

I've heard FX channel is picking it up in the UK in January.

yep

Cos it deserves to be a big show.

again, yep

Don't think this was already mentioned; Dexter really has a nice intro. Although first he's shaving but ends up with a stubble?

The intro in excellent, completely agree. I enjoyed the twist with the boy, it was interesting he didn't go through with it even though he knew what the boy's intentions were in the trees.

Thats an interesting one isnt it. I mean the boy was obviously using a bit of entrapment on the other kid, seeing if another person would try to rape him again. I mean he wasnt even that hot :D :D

Seriously though, is it morally correct to do such a thing, i.e. I was raped once and killed the guy that did it, so I shall lead another guy along and see if he does the same, and kill him too if he does? Its a toughy. But I think Dex did the right thing. Maybe it'll be revisited as the kid knows Dex aint normal what with the stalking, the choking and the needle.

Interesting. I didn't take it that the boy was 'testing' his mate, I just assumed he had a bit of a taste for blood.

Just caught up with the first three episodes of this. I am so glad I saw this topic otherwise I would have missed this one completely. Easily the best of the new series starting at the moment. Really looking forward to seeing where they take this.

No one seen episode 4 yet, then? Again, it's managed to get better.

Although, I thought Dexter's powers of deduction seem to be a little too intuitive for my liking, but the tone is pretty much spot on; I thought the pilot was a little too 'kooky', but they've replaced that with a real blackness. For a couple of episodes now I've suspected someone close to Dexter to be the killer (mainly his sister) just because it would be standard US TV twist type thing, but I'm now convinced that's not the case, which is better IMO.
