Seriously, it's awesome, it's fun, it's thought-provoking, and it's ADDICTIVE. My mom's the one who got me hooked on this one--she watched, like, the entire first season off of On Demand in one night, so I figured I'd give it a shot, and hocrap it's amazing. It's like a mix of premium-channel drama, police procedural, and PSYCHO-KILLER FUN, plus major moral questioning and introspection.

So yeah, I got Court hooked too, and we finished the last episode of Season 1 (the only one out so far) tonight. TWISTS AND TURNS ABOUND. Seriously, the final twist is... CRAZY and totally cool. It also helps that the music is great and the visuals are stellar, and kjdshfkas I should have watched it sooner. (It's weird, because although I saw a bunch of billboard advertisements for it when it first came out, but I was under the impression it was just going to be a normal police procedural that was edgier than usual because it was going to be on Showtime.)

ANYWAY. It's awesome, and I'm really happy to have a new show to watch in place of Rome come next season. (As awesome as House is, it was sad to only have one show to follow every week. D:) SO YAAAY. :DDD WOO.

EDIT: ALSO, notice Dexter has been added to the Requested Characters list at [ profile] damned. NOTICE. Although I kinda am tempted to read the novels and then try to app for him kasjfhaksf

EDIT-EDIT: ALSO, [ profile] endless_abyss! (Aka Sabrina, but I thought that'd catch your attention better. XD;) I remember Andrew was asking me if I knew any series similar to Death Note so that you could share them with your DN board? WELL, I have to say, Dexter is the only show I've come across that's anything like Death Note, and it's actually remarkably so. It has the whole "killing for a higher purpose" and questionable morals thing going, as well as the dramatic irony of Dexter being a serial killer and none of his police force co-workers realizing it. (There's even an arc where Dexter's own unit is investigating one of his murders and trying to catch him, and he's trying to throw them off from the inside.) The main difference between Dexter and Light, though, is that Dexter has no choice but to kill and makes the best of it, whereas Light makes a conscious decision, as well as the fact that Dexter refuses to kill innocent people, even if it's to his benefit, unlike our favorite god-complexed teenager.

...THAT'S ALL. :D;
