Should I watch Dexter on CBS?

Postby Sticky Spice » Wed Feb 20, 2008 3:05 pm

or should I just rent seasons 1 & 2 at some point.

I generally dislike watching edited movies/shows, but my wife is pressuring me to watch. Will I miss anything from the experience by watching it edited?

Thanks ;-D

Of course you will miss part of the experience. That's what happens when you watch a watered-down version of something.

Dexter is easily one of the top 3 shows anywhere right now, maybe even #1 overall. Both seasons are 100% outstanding. If you are going to watch the show(and you should), you owe it to yourself to get the full experience. Every episode is easily available on torrents or elsewhere here on this lovely series of tubes we call the innernets.




Although, I will say this, hearing Doakes and Deb saying "mother lover" and "frick" would probably add a nice bit of humor. At least the first few times anyway. After that, I imagine it will just sorta sound sad.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

Buy the DVD of the first season you won't regret it, more than worth it, or rent it, neither would be hard. Dexter is a phenominal show, one that should be seen in its beautiful entirity!

You should rent it, but if the wife wants to watch it on CBS, this shouldn't even be a question. :-D

With any TV show these days you can go to google and type "Watch Dexter Online Free." Check out the first 3-4 links and one of them will have every episode of the show online streaming and DIVX quality.

I just watched the 2 seasons over the last two weeks or so. Definitely gets two thumbs up.

Yeah, I will never watch this show because my wife would never dream of watching anything like this, and I don't watch TV by myself.

Despite being a cable show and considering the subject matter, Dexter is extremely mild. Watching it on DVD would probably be best but I think watching it on TV wouldn't matter much other than the commercials.

Visually, it's fairly mild. The killings are always implied. You will see some dead bodies and body parts since Dexter works in forensics but nothing really gruesome. There are no scenes of torture like you see in Saw or Hostel.

Thanks guys.

I think since it sounds like I won't miss any content that I'll just go ahead and watch the mother lovin show all cleaned up.

So I am almost through the first season and I must say that this show is awesome. Definitely one of the best shows right now.
