Sounds like a very strange premise. Definitely be checking it out.

royrose 09-30-2006 06:26 PM

I read the novel that it is based on, Dexter Dreaming Darkly by Jeff Lindsay. Lots of fun. I am looking forward to the series.

Boycott the show. Showtime is using pop ups in HD Movies and destroying their channel for this show.

Don't post info or contribute to any hype on it - that's the only way to get the message to Showtime that their pop ups for this show on HD Movies doesn't work.

Anyone who doesn't will contribute to SHO eventually looking like TNT-HD.

I'm really curious if it will be in HD. My DirecTV listing didn't say HDTV for it and I looked it up on Showtime's HD list and it wasn't on there... I was asking this in the Brotherhood thread and this was posted:

So there is hope, but stranger things have happened....

Did you cancel your 3 Showtime subs? If not, go away with your boycotts!

Cox OKC lists Dexter as being in HD, too.

I am not crazy about pop-ups, either, but Showtime does have some good stuff, so I'll rise above the pop-up irritation. Anyway, pop-ups beat cropping 2.35:1 movies to 1.85:1, which HBO does routinely. Further, Michael C. Hall, who plays the title character in Dexter, is really good, as he proved in the HBO series, Six Feet Under.

I watched the first episode on-line (legally!) a few days ago. I liked it, although I'll admit it creeped me out a bit. It looks to be 16:9 so I assume it's HD.

While I agree that mangled credits are a bad thing, especially on a premium channel, I think an email to Showtime will do more than boycotting this show. Premimum channel episodics are a good thing as they escape the influence of the letter writing campaigns from those portrayed in NBS's controversial skit in their new season of Studio60.

Wow. That was excellent. It's not nearly as gross-out as Bones or House.

ziltomil 10-01-2006 08:06 PM

This show is very well done.

Keenan 10-01-2006 11:06 PM

This one is definitely going to be interesting.

Ink Noise 10-01-2006 11:47 PM

This show is fantastic.

It's getting a definite season pass on my DVR.

Ditto. I thought the best line was from Dexter after he was almost seduced. "That was close".

They didn't show it up close but he did start sawing into one guys face.

I think they want people to like the character and it might be hard if you see him in detail torturing people even if they deserve it.

Gary*w* 10-02-2006 03:34 AM

Really, really good show! Some of the charactors need a bit of work but that's what the rest of the season is for.

dm145 10-02-2006 05:45 AM

What, no one boycotted this show?
Great show, now I have something to dvr on Sundays.

CPanther95 10-02-2006 05:47 AM

Loved the line he said to himself questioning why only one guy in a room full of intuitive cops found him creepy.

ha, looking forward to the show.

So much TV to watch this season.

vurbano 10-02-2006 06:44 AM

Pretty sick show.

adpayne 10-02-2006 07:15 AM

Excellent show! I'm glad it's lived up to all the hype Showtime has gone through to promote it. They even had Hall sit in the crowd during a Showtime aired boxing match several weeks ago.

Dexter was great. Very interesting. I will certianly keep watching. But what I think really got me excited last night was the trailer for SleeperCell. I hadn't seen that before. Just from the trailer, I'm really excited about the next run of this show. Tudor looked interesting as well.

mikey mo 10-02-2006 01:05 PM

The Tudors and Sleeper Cell (part 2) were both promoted last night. Hopefully FredFa will do his usual great job and give us the "scoop" on these two shows.

I liked the show a lot..and the HD PQ was excellent. Quite a contrast after watching the 'barely HD' Desperate Housewives last night.

At the beginning I was wondering if it was HD or just widescreen SD, it looked a bit grainy.

Must have just been the dark scenes in the car, once they got out into the Miami sunshine it looked great.

Definately keeping the SP on the HD TiVo.

Showtime doesn't have a stellar record when it comes to renewing it's good shows though.
Dead Like Me and Huff spring to mind.

I have to agree with you there. Its well done but I can't get into a show that glorifies killing, no matter who it is.

gwsat 10-02-2006 06:37 PM

I really like the combination of humor and horror the show achieves. Is it sick? Sure, but that's the main thing that makes it funny. Besides, Dexter doesn't kill anybody who doesn't need killing.

Keenan 10-02-2006 06:56 PM

Being devoid of emotions, it's interesting to see how Dex copes with those instances where they're usually required, should provide for some rather amusing moments.

bobby94928 10-02-2006 07:39 PM

I remember watching Six Feet Under for the first time and thinking that this is a really strange program. I get the same feeling here and I bet I will watch it for several seasons as well.
