Between Dexter and the new season of Masters of Horror starting on Friday, Showtime is Definitely worth the money.

This show is phenomenal. Easily the best new show of this year. Last night's episode was very well done, especially at the end. Not sure I like them focusing on the ancillary cops personal lives, but that's a minor nitpick.

Dexter

Masters of Horror - S1 was the single most disappointing tv/movie event of 2005.

Is ep 4 not showing up on anyone else's on Demand? I missed it, and don't wanna watch this week's before then. Granted, I could record it on Saturday

Edit - nevermind, for some reason I thought we were already on ep 5

This show continues to amaze me. Brilliant brilliant writing. Brilliant brilliant acting. And completely original - no other TV series like it. Ever.

Yup, enjoyed the cat-n-mouse game of the overall arc, but also the smaller subplots keep things from getting stale. It's going to be hard to see someone dressed up as Tomb Raider and not expect something extra from them. The barking dog subplot featured a growing backbone for Rita. Angel's homelife subplot wasn't what was expected. Doakes getting used a bait was a nice touch, but he did get in a few shots of his own with the cop mad at him for schtuppin' his now deceased sister. Dexten continues to prop up Deb's detective career with an anonymous tip. Dexter's own past continues to push the present plot. If Dexter were "normal", he's be freaked out about the serial bloodless butcher having the 411 on him, but Dexter uses it to his advantage.

Dexter discovering that he enjoys blowjobs

The main story is very well done.

Yup. I just canceled HBO (at least until a new season of series starts) and started SHO just for Dexter (and on the off chance that ONE of the Master's of Horror episodes doesn't totaly suck).
