Yeah I saw the connection with the plot but wasn't really paying attention to the episode till a topless girl started talking about her sexual preferences. Just didn't expect to see that so it was a pleasant surprise.

Dexter the series stopped following Dexter the novels after season 1, which is good from a not knowing what's coming next point of view but there are little things in the books that I think would have been cool to see such as Dexter training Rita's kids to be sociopaths like Harry did for him but it's probably for the best as I doubt Cody or Astor could have pulled off scenes like that.

I find it funny people hated Julia Stiles in season 5 or hate Deb in general, I actually like Deb and quite enjoyed Lumen until the end of the finale but Astor... Jesus, just go away.

Hopefully they can advance Dexter's son to the point and maybe get a better than average child actor to play him to pull off something like that.

I think Dexter (the show) would have to jump forward in time to show Harrison learning the skills from his Dad. Can't imagine the show going past 7 or 8 seasons.

I don't have many problems with Deb as a character, but Jennifer Carpenter butchers all her pivotal emotional scenes with her terrible acting. Also don't like the fact that she still uses all her stupid curses all the time. Not a big drawback but considering how they want to show her as someone who has matured over the course of the show it makes her seem childish.

I dont think she's terrible. I think she plays her scenes pretty great most of the time. The cursing is a part of her character, just beause someone matures emotionally doesnt mean they need to stop using certain words.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

Yeah nothing wrong with Carpenter's acting. I mean she's not Meryl Streep, but she's better than most of the cast on that show.

Carpenter is one of the worst actresses I've ever seen. Her facial expressions are fucking brutal.

Yeah man. Acting is not this show's strong suit. When Keith Carradine shows up and he's your best actor, that's pretty obvious.

You can't stand Deb though, so I could see how your judgment is clouded.

re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

I won't disagree there but Carpenter is easily the worst actor/actress on the show.

Other than maybe Rita's kids, but kids don't count. Its why i'm better than all of you.
