November 12, 2006 – Dexter - "Circle of Friends" Season 1, Episode 7

The word of the day is creepy. Show of hands, who thinks, Debra, of the fine detective skills, fingered the ITK? Yeah, me neither. The day that Debra is smarter than her brother will be the coldest day around here. But we must give her credit where credit is due the doctor she'd kissed is hot, but somehow, creepy. Dexter called it all along and when recognized Dex's fine detective skills, I knew they had taken in the wrong man. Not to say that Neil Perry wasn't completely creepy with all the stuffed roadkill in his house, but just not their man. Rita's handling of her husband around the kids was worrying me until she showed up at his hotel doorstep and demanded he sign the divorce papers he had refused to sign in prison. His acquiescence based on how firey she was and how excited that made him, was creepy, and certainly untrustworthy to say the least. This guy has something up his sleeve. The women on the show seem to be developing into fully realized characters only seven episode into the first season. I'm glad to see it happening and can't wait to see what stuff these gals are made of. My favorite moment might have come when the Lieutenant got schooled by the department chief - it was just pure fantastic. I loved the look on Laguerta's face as she was making herself up and he told her the press conference was over. That was priceless. I am happy to have stuck with Dexter. It is unraveling like a fine murder mystery, which is how it came into existence in the first place. Dexter's concerned advice to Jeremy was smart and good intentioned, but without a Harry around on a constant basis, his advice could go nowhere. The glimmer of himself he saw in Jeremy was a testament to his sense of being and made him that much more human for me. We know his dark side, unlike Rita, who is a bit oblivious when it comes to the men in her life and since she says, Dexter "has a good heart", yet we know how hard won the balance is for him. I believe some of the best writing on TV is happening in the war room at Showtime. And frankly, no matter how creepy, I say, "bring it on." show less
