Dexter

V and I have been watching Dexter lately. It's a show about a serial killer who works for the police and kills other bad people. What's amazing is that this show's main character is an evil man, with little empathy, compassion, or any other emotion toward other people, yet he's still, somehow, likeable. Maybe it's because he's so different than most of us that the show is fascinating (and how flashbacks to his past, which can be boring backstory in a lot of TV and movies, are actually some of the best stuff in Dexter).

We're still on Season 1, but apparently Season 2 recently came out. To promote it, the creators made a fountain in Philadelphia flow with blood instead of water. Awesome.

that fountain is freakin' cool

I'm thinking of getting season 1 on DVD, I've heard really good things about it

This series is probably one of the smartest things on tv right now -- and the fountain -- very cool.

Cool! I need a new series to start watching so this could be it.

I remember the actor from Six Feet Under. He was a good actor.

I wish I was in Philidelphia. Then I could take a blood bath.

That's awesome. Vampires come blood.

Dexter was also "leaked" 3 months early on the dark side of the internet, allowing us huge Dex fans to catch the show that much earlier. The only problem is that since we've seen the first two episodes already, we have to wait for the third one to be able to start watching it again :(

One of the only shows that make paying for cable worthwhile... Oh wait, this is on Showtime huh? I take that back.

I got hooked on it this summer. Had to download Season 2, Episode 1 since I don't have "fancy" cable.

I saw one of those LOVE signs in Vancouver last summer, I thought it had something to do with teh building it was in front of.
