Episode 5 which will go down in cable history as Dexters finest show to date This is the one where Debra Morgan grows some cahones Dexter Morgan gets back to business and the world is right again This is the one where I got it the humor the style the madness or rather lack thereof Dexter is rarely angry and certainly never seems insane Youve got to be a little nuts to live a double life especially the kind that Dexter lives But Dexter seems to enjoy it and now I do too Sgt Doakes is the one riding Debras hindquarters now Hes always been kind of nasty to Dexter but now hes taking it out on everyone else including the painfully pasty Deb I was yelling at the TV for her to let him have it Why she lets all her superiors walk all over her I cannot understand So when she finally tells him to frak off thanks BSG I was really proud of her and thought perhaps she can fill the shoes of an interesting character Of course when Mr Tu read more

October 15, 2006 – “The Popping Cherry”

Dexter has feelings Im certain of it And the place where this is most clearly realized is the way in which he tells us about his father and his relationship to him certainly an indication of love He wants everyone to believe he has no emotions but I dont believe him He was willing to kill for his father Goodbye Nurse Ratchet And as Harry was the one to teach him how to live the vigilante lifestyle full of lessons of right from wrong the show could have been called The Code of Harry Not only does Dexter love his father but he loves Ritas kids too Or at least likes them a lot Upon hearing Ritas daughter cry as he removes her splinter Dexter intimates If I had a heart it would be breaking right now He does have a heart He just doesnt want to show it and it has something to do with whatever happened to him before Harry and his wife took him in as their foster child Its alluded to again in this ep The best read more

Supernatural So this Supernatural...

SupernaturalSo this Supernatural could've used more... cowbell. Sam and Dean's brush with the evil preacher's wife and the nasty reaper meant it was the perfect opportunity to dust off Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper." The episode also could've used more Dean-is-dying angst. He went from zapped to lying on his deathbed to healed in the first 15 minutes of the show. I mean, come on. How 'bout stretchin' it out for another episode or two? Or at the very least giving us a couple over-the-top chick-flick moments before the blind preacher man did his healing thing? But Dean stayed true to character as the nonbeliever and struggled with why he was chosen over those he felt were worthier. Like Buffy and Angel alu read more

About Nicholson: You Don't Know Jack

In Hollywood circles, Jack Nicholson is rumored to be as talented in the boudoir as he is on the set. But the fact of the matter is, his reputation as a playboy could be somewhat exaggerated. That's right — though he has been linked romantically with A-list sweethearts from Anjelica Huston to Lara Flynn Boyle, the dirty dawg might actually be a pussycat! Here's how we know: Back when the About Schmidt leading man was shooting a scene for 1997's As Good as It Gets with blonde bombshell Julie Benz (Steven Spielberg's Taken), his true colors showed and — surprise, surprise — they weren't red-light-district crimson. "He didn't hit on me," Benz tells TV Guide Online, sounding for all the world like a high school girl stood up on prom night. "I was very disappointed. I think he thought I was really young." Still, the three-time Oscar winner made quite an impression on the baby-faced starlet read more
