So. There’s new images on Cafe Press and more on the way…but what I really want to blab about is Dexter. If you don’t know about it, here you go-if you do-join in. Dexter is a Showtime series that is absolutely blowing my mind. (And I don’t think it’s because I’ve been without tv for over a year, I still keep up) Based on the book, Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay, this has got to be some of the best writing adapted for the modern tv culture. The story weaves together a great cast of characters, each extremely well-written, and solidly acted. Michael C. Hall, best known for his role in Six Feet Under, is perfection in this. The premise is a serial killer who kills serial killers. A forensics specialist employed by the Miami police department no less.
How Dexter became Dexter is the real story. On the grand scale, the series explores what it is to be human, all the complex spaces between black and white, good and evil, day and night, brother and sister, parent and child, friend and lover. Are there any real answers? Who can say? Take a ride on this train and you’re sure to find yourself thinking about some very interesting nuances between stops.
I guess I’ll leave it at that. For now.
