So I just finish season 4 of Dexter which is the one with John Lithgow for anyone that needs reminding. The show is pretty awesome at this point. I usually don't care for law enforcement dramas, but Dexter and the Wire are the exceptions.
My thoughts so far -
1. Either writers/show runners from Six Feet Under were on the Dexter team or the Dexter team stole from them. I've hated every character at some point. At the same time, I've felt empathy for just about every character at some point - even Lithgow's character. The only other show I've ever watched that does that is Six Feet Under.
2. The ending to season 4 (Rita axed) just made me sick to my stomach. Literally thought about stopping watching the show. I didn't want to watch anymore when he found her phone when he tried calling her. I watched the first 10 minutes of Season 5 just a few minutes ago while talking to a man about a wallabe and I think I'll be able to go on.
3. I saw a thread a while back about Angel Batista being a bad actor. I actually thought he opposite as someone who saw him in Oz. I sometimes now forget he was ever in Oz while watching Dexter and its the only two places I've seen him that I can remember. Same thing with La Guerta. I guess that doesn't qualify them as good actors for everyone but they are certainly not one role actors. I saw Kirk Acevedo in Apes this past Friday and I can't say the same for him (as far as Oz alums go).
4. Vince Masuka is my all time support character on a tv show ever.
