"See that?" shrieks one of the band of zombie-slaughtering survivors in AMC's The Walking Dead, eyes wide and wild in bloodthirsty pride as we bear graphic witness to a new way of dispatching a "walker" — this one tricked out in riot-gear armor, befitting the new season's prison setting. Yes, of course we see. It's not as if we can look away, much as we might want to at times. Granted, we might need to look twice, because in the tradition of the greatest horror-movie thrill rides, we're sometimes watching through our fingers as we climb the back of our chairs and sofas in revulsed shock and awe.
Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall
After spending the past six seasons keeping his Dark Passenger in the, uh, dark, Dexter's titular character will be forced out of the serial-killing closet in the season premiere.

Dexter is in trooooouble!
When Dexter returns for its seventh — and penultimate — season, both viewers and their favorite serial-killing blood spatter analyst will discover just what happens when his secret is revealed.
The last we saw of Dexter (Michael C. Hall), he had finally delivered his own biblical form of vengeance upon Travis (Colin Hanks), who had left Miami in fear over where the Doomsday Killer would strike next. He had also kidnapped Dexter's son Harrison, which finally hit a nerve with the often emotionless Dexter, who then stuck it to Travis — literally — in the closing moments of the finale. Unfortunately, Dexter wasn't alone in that church, with Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) planning to profess her love to her brother before walking in on him driving a knife into Travis.
Dexter Boss on the Finale Twist: It's finally time to deal with [SPOILER!] head-on
Clearly, Deb's reaction will be Dexter's greatest obstacle this season as he's faced with someone finally taking off his mask. But...
Showtime's Dexter is not back until the fall but, oh, the questions we have about the season ahead! What will Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) do now that she's onto Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and his serial-killing ways?
Swedish-born actress Katia Winter has landed a recurring role on Showtime's serial killer drama Dexter.

Doug Hutchison as Punisher: War Zone's Loony Bin Jim
The third time was the charm for a certain Marvel Comics vigilante when Ray Stevenson stepped into the title role in Punisher: War Zone. To mark the big and banging action pic's arrival on home video (shop for the two-disc Special Edition DVD or Blu-ray format), Doug Hutchison — who plays Loony Bin Jim, the psycho bro of master villain Jigsaw, and now appears on Lost as Horace Goodspeed — gave us a peek inside his first "graphic" experience as an actor. Plus: Hutchison shares his take on one of cinema's greatest comic-book villains, Heath Ledger's Joker.
So are we supposed to think Bob Dylan is the final Cylon? Wouldnt surprise me a bit after Sundays mind-blowing season finale of Battlestar Galactica. I watched a rough cut of this episode several weeks ago, in order to be able to include it in a mid-season roundup, but it feels like a year has passed, Ive been so anxious for it to get out there so more dedicated and obssessed fans than I could ever claim to be can start weighing in. I rarely have the luxury to watch anything twice, but I decided to watch Sundays episode in more or less real time, so I could savor it again in a more polished version and see if it would have the same impact the second time around.Did it ever. As they say, holy frak, right?Battlestar earns an A-plus with its jam-packed finale, the last well get of the show until the next calendar year. (Thats the bad news. The good: There will be at least 22 more hours of Battlestar to kick around come 2008.) Not only was Baltar...
Want to know how to snap a physically and mentally exhausted hero back to life? Try whispering this in Jack Bauer's ear: "You will die for nothing."
By now, any evil terrorist should know better than to taunt 24's mythic warrior (Emmy champ Kiefer Sutherland) this way. When it happens, near the end of the first hour of 24's darkest and most unsettling season yet (premiering Jan. 14 and 15 at 8 pm/ET on Fox), Jack awakens with a bloody vengeance.
But this isn't the same old Jack. This Jack is damaged goods, reeling from nearly two years of torture in a Chinese prison where he uttered nary a word. Now, when he speaks, he says things like, "I don't know how to do this anymore." Say it ain't so.
Making matters worse — something 24 does fiendishly well — the U.S. has suffered in Jack's absence, victimiz
