    Rita got progressively hotter every season. By season 4 she looked incredible.

      And what I'm referring to in not mentioning BHB is that SEVERAL people have seen Dexter in compromising positions, and not one has connected him to being the BHB. Hell, no one has even said BHB one ******* time since the season 2 finale. As far as Deb finding out, why the hell not? Why not actually change up the format (outside of the fact that the writers aren't good enough to do it)?
      I forgive you for like wrestling after this post.

          I still very much enjoy the show though I don't disagree with anything said here. IMO, the problems arise in the writers indecision in the direction to develop Dexter's character. They're stuck between a) Dexter changes, becomes connected to other people and loses his desire to kill or b) Dexter will never change and will always be a disconnected killer. The thing is, both options are very limited in how far they can take it. With A, the action and drama of the show is centered around the fact that he's a serial killer and once that's gone, the drama is gone. With B, it becomes very repetitive and doesn't allow for character development. They're stuck in a rut between the two and are afraid to make a strong move either way and change the dynamic of the show, quite simply, because they still don't know what that dynamic should be. The concept of the show was limited in the first place. With a 6th season coming, it makes me realize that Dexter probably had two seasons too many.

          • I agree with Brodeur 10000%, but I still love the show.

            And yeah, Julie Benz is ridiculously hot. Just insane. She was kinda meh in the first season, but she got hotter each year, and now she's on No Ordinary Family.. mmmmmmm.

            Also, I think I'm going to rewatch Veronica Mars. One of my favorite shows of all time.

            • Veronica Mars is the ****. I rewatched it in the summer and it was just as awesome as ever. Except Duncan still sucks. And so does that radio guy in the third season.

                • I'm sure I'm going to feel the same way when I get around to Modern Family, based on everything I've heard.

                  Luckily I'm already down with Community, for it is the tits.

                    Doakes found out and the show didn't end, but Deb finding out would end it? Come on.

                    They could do a lot more with what they have to work with than they are, but I still love the show.
                    No one believed Doakes prior to him really finding out (at which point, he was imprisoned by Dexter), which was the driving force behind making him awesome.

                    Deb finding out would be the end of the show.

                    Lila not interfering (the "cop-out") would have resulted in the end of the show.

                    Not sure about anyone else, but I'm not ready for there to be no more seasons of Dexter.

                    Every serial killer is a metaphor. The show operates on a deeper level than just the events that take place.

                      You haven't seen Modern Family yet? Phil Dunphy is one of my favorite TV characters of all-time.

                      • Deb finding out would not end the show, you're wrong. Maybe Doakes not ending up how he did would have, but it isn't the same for Deb.

                        The writers HAVE to be more creative next season or there is no reason to keep the show on the air anymore, and this is coming from someone who LOVES the show.

                          That's not true. People not watching would be a reason for them to take the show off air.

                            I didn't say it was the ONLY reason to take it off the air!

                              I haven't seen Modern Family yet either :( however that will soon change. I've just been adding a ton of shows to my sidereel for future viewings.
