BELATED BINGE: Dexter [SPOILERS]

an…I’m mad late to this party (twelve years late). So good. That season finale…OH BOY! #IceTruckKiller. Man, if you’re like me and waited 12 years to watch this, something’s wrong with us. I love his “pretending to be normal” face. I wish I knew how to put on a fake face. Everyone tells me my face is too honest. I love how the show doesn’t hide how hot and humid Miami is. Dexter’s back is sweating all the time. The Cuban music soundtrack is dope, then he murders someone. It’s a good switch up. 

 

UPDATE:

Random comments in no particular order:

  • I love shows where the main character is a genius, kind of a-holey, jumps to wild conclusions and (by crazy TV logic) ends up being right.
  • In real life, Dexter married Deb. They divorced and then filmed 3 seasons AFTER their divorce. They are true professionals.
  • In real life, Dexter had freaking cancer around season 4 or 5.
  • Doakes is such an over the top asshole cop, that it didn’t seem bad while you were watching it for the first time. But, when the show flashes back to him, he ends up being a comical character.
  • I can’t not like Jimmy Smits. He played pretty much the same character in Sons of Anarchy. He’s such a cool older Spanish mentor.
  • Season 4 got rave reviews online. I didn’t dig it. Dexter had so many chances to *kill* Trinity and didn’t do it. That annoyed me. John Lithgow is a great actor. His range is doofy alien in Third Rock from the Sun to serial killer in Dexter.
  • Seasons 6 and 8 were the least enjoyable for me. At first, I was accepting of the series finale and the direction the writers took. Now that I think of it, yeah, the finale sucked…along with the last 3 episodes of the season. If he was willing to leave Miami, he could have left at the end of season 7 and lived happily ever after. If he was willing to bounce on Harrison, he could have done that way earlier. Why does Harrison even exist? Dexter is a serial killer who didn’t want connections. He would have sterilized himself.
  • Dexter went from dirty blond in the earlier seasons to super dark red head in the last two seasons. It had nothing to do with cancer. It was a decision to just change it for the sake of change.
  • How much money do blood spatter analysts get paid? According to Google: $61,220 in 2017. My man had an apartment, a house, a boat, a car, and 3 kids in Miami. Later on, he had two apartments, a boat, a car, private school tuition and a nanny that worked damn all day and all night. He also takes 6 hour lunches every day to stalk his prey. He is amazing at budgeting his income.
  • Dexter and I are very similar. We wear the same clothes all the time for at least 8 years. ♦
