I think the writers of Dexter
have been smoking some serious crack since season six, and they actually believe the bullshit they spout about this show. I have three words for them:
DEBRA FUCKING MORGAN
whose character they have completely trashed in the last two seasons in the pursuit of making her serial killer
brother an actual hero. I should have quit after last season but I had a vain hope that Deb would be redeemed.
But let's be real, I
could have written a better final season than those crack-smoking monkey-writers have. The pacing is ridiculous, stuff happens that no one watching actually cares about, some of this season's plots should have had seeds planted YEARS ago to be bearing fruit now, and characters have been basically tossing the Idiot Ball to each other all season and hoping that the audience will pick it up. I mean, if you're a wanted serial killer (one of three currently on the show!) and your face is being plastered all over every news outlet, wouldn't you, say, dye your hair? Or at least put on a hat and sunglasses before leaving the house? Make SOME attempt at a disguise? Sadly, these questions apply to two of the three "extremely dangerous and clever" serial killers at the moment.
I've seen the Reddit spoilers about the final ep. I know some people think they're fake because they're so fucking ridic, but seeing how this season has gone so far, I wouldn't be surprised that every single one of them is true. I said to timesink
on Twitter that I was hoping for a Red Wedding to end the show, but I don't think we'll get that lucky.
Yeah, I've continued watching this after Dexter
, bad accents and all. This is one weird show, I have to say. This last ep was actually good, since it focused on what seems to be the show's strength - the Donovan family and their twisted melodrama. The three actors playing Ray, Terry, and Bunchy were fantastic last night. Jon Voight's on a show of his own, pretty much. And the Dexter
characters toss the Idiot Ball over every week to Abby, who takes it and runs screeching with it. Please someone tell her she doesn't have to do the Boston accent anymore. PLEASE
I don't watch this show, but after last night's Dexter
, I wish I did.
