Re: Dexter

Whenever it is that Showtime decided Dexter was an untouchable hero is when the show jumped shark. When exactly that happened is debatable. Probably the end of Season 2, when the only smart or interesting detective to ever work at Miami metro was killed off.

The show outlived it's premise a long, long time before it reached it's actual conclusion. Showtime is currently doing the same with Nurse Jackie, which also would have been a great 2-3 season series.

What amazed me was that NOBODY looking out for the murderer of LaGuerta! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Not even Angel. I think it was the worst decision to kill her off the show if they have no intent to resolve. I think that would have a lot better final season than what they just did with this season.

If I remember correctly, Dexter staged it to look as though Estrada and Laguerta killed each other. So, nobody was looking for her killer because the case was considered closed. This is also why Quinn didn't believe Deb when she claimed to have been the one to do it. Obviously this story line is incredibly dumb, even dumber than if they actually did just ignore that LaGuerta had died.

Same. I've never had a problem with suspension of disbelief, so i could deal with plot holes or things being unrealistic, but the last season was just a clusterfuck of epic proportions. And it's tainted my view of the whole series.

When deb first out it was the jump the shark for the show
Season 6 was weak but when deb finding out it was awful

The peak was when she killed laguerta, so out of character


I heads Michael.c hall said he didn't like the final
