  1. Really going to miss Dexter on Showtime and I can’t wait for the series finale on September 22nd. Guess I’ll wait until November 5th when the final season comes out on DVD.

  2. Jerri says:

    Disappointed with the final season of Dexter, to be honest. They tried squeezing in too much into the final season, and some things they’ve squeezed in weren’t even necessary. (Masuka’s daughter for starters) & way too many glaring plotholes (Hannah’s on the run yet she doesn’t even try changing anything about her looks?). There’s no sense of urgency or nailbiting going on for the audience. Final season should’ve been Angel digging deeper into LaGuerta’s death connecting dots that lead up to Dexter & Deb.

    • Kim R says:

      I have to say I’ve been disappointed as well. I keep waiting for this Wow moment when it all comes together and makes perfect sense. I’m still hoping for that because it if goes out like this it is quite a let down for generally a fantastic series. Surely they are not just going to limp into the sunset? I find I’m just confused by the writing. ??

    • Mikael says:

      I really thought the final season of Dexter would be about him getting found out, how he would escape, and if Deb would help him or bring him in. I’m surprised that LaGuerta’s death was wrapped up so neatly and forgotten. I like that they brought Hannah back, but I couldn’t believe she wouldn’t wear a dark wig or some kind of disguise.

  3. Alana says:

    ABCFamily should do that for The Lying Game!!! We didn’t get any closure and we were left hanging!!

  4. diana says:

    So excited for WC this new season. Looks like Neal is going to enjoy being a conman once again. Hope Peter learns that Neal is never going to change. I know some fans want Neal to settle in the suburbs with two kids and have double dates with El and Peter! How boring…gaah. Neal should alwasy stay Neal, the lovely conman with a heart of gold, one of the few people who can live in the gray areas successfully.

  5. Omg, there is a lot of information on your website. I’m an associate writer
    and was wondering about the length of time the investigation took you?
