Question: I imagine you must be getting flooded with questions and/or ranting about the finale of How I Met Your Mother. I was among those who left the finale feeling incredibly sad, not what I expect from a show that's kept me laughing (and sometimes crying) for the last nine years, even when others were saying that the quality had declined. The thing is, when looked at objectively, I don't even have a major problem (Major Problem!) with the content of the finale. Yes, people get divorced and people die. People get remarried after both, and I've known several people in my own life who have reconnected with an old girlfriend or high-school sweetheart after the death of a spouse. It doesn't invalidate the marriage or even lessen the feelings of loss. The finale itself had great moments: the high-infinity, Marshall's "positive talk" about his corporate job, Judge Fudge, the mother's Gore/Lieberman costume, robots versus wrestlers, etc. Seeing Barney with a child was wonderful, although I did think he had grown more than immediately going back to his old ways after his divorce. And the scene on the platform was near perfection as they wove in how their almost-shared history was influencing their connection, making the whole nine-year story relevant to how he'd actually met the mother. (By the way, one more TM would be the name we've known Tracy by: The Mother.)

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the series finale of Dexter. Read at your own risk!]

There is no happy ending for a serial killer — at least according to Dexter.

Jennifer Carpente and Michael C. Hall

After eight seasons, over 100 kills and more blood than we can imagine, Dexter will sign off for good on Sunday.

From the beginning, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) was a serial killer incapable of having emotions or a true human connection. But over the course of eight seasons, he's faced love, loss, heartache and even friendship with his foul-mouthed sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), proving that he may have the capacity for feelings. Will that be Dexter's downfall in the series finale? We'll find out Sunday (9/8c, Showtime). Before then, however, Hall and Carpenter look back at eight seasons of kills and thrills... read more

Dexter's Final Season: Should Our Favorite Serial Killer Die Before the End?

Michael C Hall

After eight emotional, death-filled seasons, Dexter will sign-off for good — but the question remains whether the series' titular character will do the same.

Dexter final season scoop: Does Dexter have to die?

Ever since the show's inception, viewers had wondered how long Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) could get away with being a serial killer. But, over time, those same fans also began to root for the blood-spatter analyst. They'd hold their breath when Sgt. Doakes (Erik King) got close to discovering the truth and mourned the loss of Rita (Julie Benz) because Dexter had actually — and surprisingly, for a sociopath — come to care for her. In short, viewers changed their entire perception on this particular serial killer because he was our anti-hero.

Weekend Playlist: Showtime's Ray Donovan and Dexter

Liev Schreiber

Fixer, fix thyself. Easier said than done in the gaudy cesspool of soul-sucking mendacity we call Hollywood, where Ray Donovan plies his gruff trade as the strong and silent go-to problem-solver of the stars. Showtime's Ray Donovan (Sunday, 10/9c), the summer's best and boldest new show, is a Scandal for the serious-minded: outrageously compelling and teeming with sinister surprise, yet never seeming crazily sensational as it goes to emotional and violent extremes.

On the Set: Dexter's Killer Finale

Michael C. Hall

At long last, the kill room.

For eight seasons, TV Guide Magazine has honored an unwritten code on the set of Dexter and disappeared whenever Michael C. Hall donned the vinyl apron, pulled back the plastic sheeting and switched into Dark Passenger mode. The actor always insisted he needed privacy to carry out his character's deadliest task — plunging a nine-inch butcher knife into the chest of whichever bad guy was shrink-wrapped to the kill table... read more
