I feel like I have spent the last few days cheating on my husband, Alec Baldwin. I seem to have found a new love/obsession with a serial killer named DEXTER.

This show hooked me within the first thirty seconds. After watching the complete Season One in non-stop marathon fashion it’s safe to say I am officially addicted. (And currently fearing all Ice Trucks in my immediate area.)

The flash back scenes involving Dexter as a child with his foster-father-police-officer are beyond intense. The way his father cultivates Dexter’s ‘Need To Kill’ is impressive to say a the least.

Based on Jeff Lindsay’s novels Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter this crime thriller follows Dexter Morgan. Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department. He is the main support for his sister. He has a steady girlfriend, with two kids who adore him. He also has an active “night life”. Based on a code instilled in him by his foster father, Harry, he hunts down people who have escaped justice and makes sure they don’t get away with a crime again”

Now, since I don’t subscribe to Showtime (shame on me) the only way I was ever going to be able to watch this show was waiting around for the next season on DVD’s.

I am thrilled my mother (who is also a HUGE FAN ) broke down and ordered SHOWTIME, just so we can watch this again. On Demand. wheeeeee.

Thanks Mom.

But for all of you out here still lacking  Showtime  or for whatever reason unable to buy the DVD, Dexter, is coming to CBS. I shit you not.

Debuting February 17th at 10:00 pm ET/PT.

However, I have NO IDEA how the network is going to pull this off. Dexter is a rather violent TV series with graphic language and nudity…all good things in my book, but I am afraid the show may loose some of its sharper edge in order to comply with network restrictions and time constraints?

Either way, with my favorites like House temporarily shut down (due to the writer’s strike), the never enough 30 minutes a week I am grated access to Alec & Tina on 30 Rock, and only American Idol left to fill my screen, it is SOFA KING nice to have discovered this treasure of series.

  2. It’s Awesome, but watch it on DVD. It won’t be the same on CBS, I don’t think – they can’t possibly leave it as is with the cussing, gore, etc.
