    The 3rd book takes a bad turn to the paranormal world. It loses it's realism and becomes more hocus pocus.

    It took 2 seasons of Dexter for me to shake his character on 6'_. I think it would take me many more to care about his real life.
    IE: I still enjoy Tom Cruise movies.

    I didn't watch 6' Under when it was on. After Dexter came along some of the 6' Under shows were repeated and I watched a bit of about two shows--I couldn't stand them :girlscrea I used to like Tom Cruise movies, but in recent years the movies he has picked to act in haven't been interesting to me at all :nono:

    For some reason I can't mix shows/movies and books. If I first read the books I don't like the shows/movies, but if I watch the shows/movies first then I don't even want to read the books :shrug:

    Wow that's too bad about 6'_. I wonder if it is because you dropped in the middle instead of watching from the first show. I consider that show to be one of the best written and most uncomfortable shows to watch. I put it in my top 10 must watch series.
    Oh well, we are all not the same.:)

    For some reason when I first saw dexter I too had to adjust because of my prejudice to the charcter on Six Feet Under. But after the third episoide of dexter I realized he is just a good actor. He played the gay charcter so well I assumed he would play dexter the same way. Boy was I wrong. BTW the Dexter in the book is kind of a wimp, it is his alter ego the dark passenger who is the bad ass.

    I share your opinion and I really do not care much if actors are different much than their characters - I just like to watch this show )))

    Well if I can accept the Dexter/Deb situation I still don't know how they are going to pull off the show this season. Dexter is now married--a wife plus step children--so he has to make time for them. He has a job which takes up time so when and how does he have the time to get away from everyone to do his killings? I guess may be it is thought that feelings such as mine will interest people in this up coming season, but for some reason I just don't feel the interest :confused:

    Well it is like the Showtime promos for Dexter say "With a new wife and new baby Dexter needs some time to kill." I think (hope) it will be a good season lots of twists and turns.

    Just found this at Showtimes web site.

    Season four of Dexter IMO is going to be great. John Lithgow appears as the "Trinity Killer" which brings Agent Lundy back to Miami asking Dexter for help in catching a monster who apparently has been active for the last 30 years.

    I love the way Lithgow plays crazy depraved killer. Anyone who saw Blowout can appreciate Lithgow crazy. Click on the link to see the promos. BTW I do not consider this a spoiler as what I wrote was directly from the promos. To see the promos click on season 4.

    The season premiere was leaked so technically you don't have to wait.

    That is reason I have not watched it yet. the download finished I started to watch it then stopped half way through the credits. I have it I may watch it right now I think I am going to make due with the douple dose of Dexter on Sundays, they are now on the Prado episodes as I like to call them.

    I'm just watching last season. It's a perfect show for recording for season shifting. But I may not be able to wait to watch Lithgow.

    After having several hard drive failures in HR10-250s and the card reader go out on an HR20-100, both of which lead to losing all my recordings, I'm too paranoid to let a season shift a show that I really like! :nono2:

    Of course, I've traded my premiums in for a NetFlix subscription, so I'll have to wait for Dex 4 to come out on BluRay.
