The two first episodes of the second season of Dexter were leaked on the internet back in July. I had watched the 1st episode of the second season after finishing the 1st season of Dexter. I finally watched the second episode yesterday. Sometimes you have to be in the mood for certain shows. The same is true for Brotherhood. I finally watched the last few episodes of season 1 and the leaked episodes of season 2 earlier this week.
Dexter finally deals with Little Chino. The FBI taskforce is in town to check up on teh Bay Harbor Butcher, the name the media gave to Dexter after 14 bodies were found off the coast by treasure hunters. Dexter has to deal with Rita and adapt with life with Deb at home. Deb is still off duty and cracks another case by threatening a kid with her gun.
With excellent shows like Californication, Weeds, Brotherhood and Dexter, Showtime is really hitting the mark. I like Dexter. It’s a completely different show. It’s never boring and has a lot of interesting parts. Some people enjoy saying that Dexter is not as good as Six Feet Under, but the shows aren’t the same. Michael C. Hall plays an excellent role in Dexter, a lot better than therole Peter Krause got in Dirty Sexy Money, a show that I believe is doomed to failure.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
