Cheery television is okay. Reality shows are getting on my nerves. And I have finally gotten to the point that I can only take so much of Howie Mandel. So it is with great delight that tonight on CBS I am finally getting to see the Showtime creation: Dexter. Some of you well know that I don't have cable tv. I can barely get the normal channels with my "ears." So I generally just watch CBS and NBC and DVD's. So happy Sunday for me, indeed. The dreadful news is that the new Knight Rider is on at 9pm. Oh well, the techno-car is going to have to take a backseat to murder.
The idea of a main character being the bad guy is awesome. I always thought that more movies should end with the bad guy winning. What would Star Wars have been like if Darth Vader had beaten down Luke. And what if The Spiderman franchise had let Venom kill off The amazing wall-crawler to have his own mayhem movies? And, what would have happened to Star Trek's never ending messing around with the time/space continuum nonsense if they had let Kahn beat Captain Kirk. So, you can imagine that I like the idea of a bad guy lead character. Bring it on Dexter - work your magic.
**After the show: very interesting nice guy/bad guy conundrum going on. There are enough sub-plots you keep you wondering where each layer is going to be peeled away. I can be easily hooked on this show... give me more**
