Re: Dexter Season 7 (spoilers)
This show has fallen back to utter tedious shit. Focusing on a poison gardener instead of a bad-ass that posed different layers and directions of threats towards Dexter, played by an actor that has great on-screen magic with Hall? FUCK THAT, we need to keep the boring character around played by an actress who has zero chemistry with the lead actor just because she's pretty. I'd have rather had a season built around the Maze Killer that was only around for a couple episodes.
Dexter is also too intelligent to fall for LaGuerta's trap. There's nothing wrong with showing cracks in the armor if there is something worthy of cracking Dexter. There was nothing that put him into a position to be that totally fucking stupid.
Dexter's violation of the Code this season also makes little sense. He wants to get his dick wet? That's a lazy attempt at shitting over everything that the character has been about in an attempt to draw in the female demographic, in particular the soccer mom population.
This season has been littered with plot holes, boring characters, cockteasing of major showdowns, overload of recycled storyline arcs, and some absolutely horrendous casting for the characters involved in the Hannah McKay storyline arc. Strahovski's performance has been sleep-inducing at best, and the crime writer character must have had nothing but soap operas as his previous acting experience.
Give Stevenson the Emmy. EVERY TIME he appeared on the screen, he brought charisma, great acting, an imposing presence, thought-provoking dialogue, and meshed so well with Hall. He was easily been the MVP of the season - when he got marginalized in favor of Stahovski, the show's entertainment value took a nosedive, and since he was written out, the show has gone back to DDK levels of utter shit.
