Even if you’ve never seen an ep of Dexter in your life, you’ve probably heard people bitching about the finale online. See, any show that’s been on TV for longer than one season will have haters after the finale–no exception. If I liked the finale, the haters can shut up. If I didn’t like it–well, they can have at it. ;-] (I liked LOST and Sopranos, but was furious with BSG, for example)
Despite the formulaic season structure on Dexter, and despite the fact that we went through this season surrounded by pivotal characters we barely knew–I thought the finale was beautiful and tragic. I liked it very much.
That said, Dexter pales in comparison to other things on TV…now. I don’t know what genius at Showtime decided to run the Dexter finale the week before the Breaking Bad finale, but that was a terrible choice. And it didn’t just work out that way–it was planned. Dexter was moved ahead over a month from when it normally airs, so I don’t get that at all. Speaking of Breaking Bad. Damn…this shit is getting really sad. Maybe crime doesn’t pay?
With S1 Under the Dome behind us, I’m starting to review Hostages tonight. I hope I didn’t choose wrong, because we watched the Sleepy Hollow premiere last week and it was pretty good. I don’t even think GeekBinge is covering that, which is a drag.
Speaking of good, Boardwalk Empire has been kicking ass.
In Under the Bed news, the EiC and I made the choice to skip a month of the mag so we could have a regular release schedule. This is due to some weirdness at B&N and some other crap I didn’t really want to worry about. So what was Undead September is now our October issue. November will be full of monsters. For December, I really want to put the Krampus on the cover. I’m hoping someone will come through with a drawing. *eyes you artists*
You can beat the rush on our awesome zombie issue by subscribing before it comes out. Here is where you’d do that. It’s only $1.99 a month, or even less for a whole year–$19.99. Every month you get at least five awesome short stories along with features (*ahem* porcelain72), reviews, interviews, and my own snarky commentary. How can you resist, and why would you want to?
We have Wreck-it-Ralph on the DVR.
If H won’t watch it with me, I’m going to punch him.
I wish I had a boxing glove. I’m not a very hard puncher.
