Dexter.
« on: July 10, 2007, 09:53:45 am »
i have been watching this show, somepeople say its not a good show but i have thought about it and i have decided it is.



the show's main character and narrater is a emotionless serial killer named Dexter Morgan. It does a fantastic job of getting you into the mind of this killer as you hear the contrast between how he speaks to people and how he thinks and as you also hear Dexter's thoughts as he struggles to understand how "socially acceptable people" think and why they behave so.

Ever since his childhood he has felt an urge to kill, his foster father found out and he realised that their is no way to remove this urge and being a policeman he decided to teach his son how to kill but to only ever kill other murderers who the police force have failed to catch. Now Dexter has grown up and he is a blood splatter expert working for the police, when they fail to catch, he moves in.

But by far the absoloute best part about this series is its soundtrack, its fantasticly hispanic and vibrant but can also dark and even satanic.

Question: How can a soundtrack be "Satantic"?

If you play it backwards does it say stuff like "Hail the lord of the all satan evil. hey kids, come on and kill all you that is unbelievens"
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Satanic as in a very emotive word used to describe dark and gloomy things, in this case, music. i admit that was a bad choice of words,

watch the show.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Me too.
If you're talking about Dexter's Lab, that hasn't been on for ages.
The creator went on to do Samuri Jack and Clone Wars.

Oh, and the chopped up bloodless bodies?

Matter of fact, they don't bother me at all, the no blood makes them look inhuman, like a chopped up doll.

i love the way how Dexter admires the killer's skill, even miming the chopping motion the killer made on his girlfriends leg and then wondering why he did that.
