The last thing I need is to become engrossed in another television show. Thanks to netflix though and my wife’s persistence that’s exactly what happened when the first disk of Dexter came in the mail. I prefer watching shows through netflix because I can essentially watch an entire season in the matter of a week. In fact all of my television now has migrated away from the actual broadcast. Since ABC thought it was necessary to put Lost on late into a Thursday night I catch it on streaming HD.
Dexter is, well amazing television. While I don’t consider myself an expert on what is good TV, the following has made my list:
Quantum Leap [still]
6 Feet Under
Battle Star Galactica
Freaks and Geeks
Back to Dexter
I started streaming season 2 from Showtime’s website. I’m disappointed in the first episode but I can’t tell if it’s due to the quality or the over zealous bad dubbing. Its a show about a serial killer that gets pretty graphic, I don’t think it’s necessary to dub in phrases like “mother lover” and “frickin”. I doubt they’re dubbing it for broadcast so why now? I figured the internet would be the place to throw in all the extra stuff. Apparently what’s happening is the censored version for CBS is being streamed. I’ll give it another two episodes, but I don’t know how much longer I can stand it. Maybe it’s the excuse I’m looking for to get back some more time in my day.
