    I finished watching episode 10 of Dexter today... Holy mother of god if this isn't just the most incredible thing on TV.

    Up untill now I would've said that Battlestar Galactica was the best thing on TV, but Dexter clearly has it beat. That last episode was absolutely chilling. It beats most films I've seen in it's intricate plot, characters, and I just honestly don't know what I can say about it, it's just brilliant.

    No, wrong Dexter.

    This is a show about a police forensics expert who also happens to be a highly skilled serial killer.

    I hear it's excellent too. Also hear Battlestar Galactica is incredible too. I've been meaning to watch that. I'll catch up with the DVDs someday.

    BSG is probably as good as Firefly.

    Dexter is in a whole other league though, that show just obliterates pretty much everything else on the subject, be it on TV or in Film.

    I'm seriously shocked nobody else here has seen this incredible show?

    Nope.

    http://imdb.com/title/tt0773262/

    I've heard about it but haven't seen it, because nobody sends it over here.

    I've been d/l'ding it...

    And I agree! Absolutely awesome show!

    Like CSI meets American Psycho - but better.

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I'd describe it.

    Did you notice the little nod to American Psycho in one of the episodes where Dexter is using the alias 'Patrick Bateman'? :D

    I'm currently reading through the second book, and it's utterly gripping. Don't think I've read through anything as fast since I read Richard Matheson's I Am Legend. If the second series follows the second book, I wonder how in the name of god they're going to show 'the thing on the table' on TV? That'll be fucking horrific!

    Firefly was complete crap. The movie was ok but the tv series was completely unmemorable - Wonderfalls on the other hand was pretty different and I liked it.

    Second book was awesome. The second TV series will probably be even more amazing, albeit slightly toned down I would assume.

    Second season starts soon!



    The first two episodes leaked and I accidentally watched them. They were good. Very good.

    The true awesomeness of the show is in how well the story line is developed.

    First 4 episodes? I've only found the first two. How'd you get the 3rd and 4th ones?
