    Ahh, I thought this was the big multi-page thread on Dexter we had, seeing as it's new I've just done a purge of any spoilers.

    also remember the golden rule, don't quote spoilers.

    Dexter was a ghost all along.

    Yeah well according to Lutz you're an idiot as it was marked spoiler.

    hey Lutz: don't be a dick. I know it's marked spoiler, but it's been posted maliciously. It's as bad as spamming the thread, really. No merit to the spoiler at all and yes, it spoils both seasons.

    "Yes well it DOES say spoiler, so of course it spoils it!"

    Idiot.

    Anyone read the books?

    The first and second ones are pretty decent, although I think the show is actually better. The third one is unmitigated shit and completely spoils the books and series for me. I'm busily constructing my own continuity where the third book never happened.

    SPOILER FOR THE THIRD BOOK BELOW

    seriously, Dexter's a serial killer because he's inhabited by a demon? What the FUCK? I always assumed the Dark Passenger was a mental construct, a way Dexter had of externalising his madness. The way the first two books were written you could believe either way, it's either a possessing force or just his own personification of his insane urges. The third one makes it explicitly real and introduces the ancient sumerian god Baal as a character. It's as though the author decided "fuck it, I will just kill the series off".
    DO NOT READ THE THIRD BOOK, it shits on all that's good about the series.
    Morally dubious, a serial killer with a childhood trauma trying to walk the line as best he could and only kill the deserving? FUCK THAT, HE'S GOT A DEMON IN HIM


    I strongly advise you to read the spoiler as it will save you the bother of picking up the book. Either that or resolve never to read the third book. That would work too.

    The problem with spoilers IMO is that you never quite know how much it's going to spoil until it's too late. Sorry if I trod on any other mod's toes, I prob deleted just as you guys were trying to edit. Anyway, all nice and clean now so lets try to keep it that way.

    There should probably be an extra layer of effort needed for spoiler tags. Just hovering over them obviously doesn't do much for casual browsers. Probably need to change it to the standard click or highlight sentence to view, or something.

    Idiot.

    To be honest, Iím pretty annoyed with myself for looking at it. Yes, it was perhaps reasonable to assume it wouldnít be that much of a spoiler, but it was still marked so really I only have myself to blame.

    WrongShui was a bit inconsiderate, but Iím not sure he meant to be malicious.

    Calling Lutz a dick is out of order, it's certainly not his fault.

    :( Was looking into picking up the 3rd book.

    How well does Season 2 follow the Book 2? If at all, given the differences between season 1 and Book 1?

    Want to tone it back Owen? At what point did I say it made you an idiot? I didn't. All is I said was if it's marked spoilers then you're going to get spoilers. Don't read something if you're not prepared to know what's underneath the tag FFS.

    OK, if it was done maliciously it doesn't help, but TBH I don't see that cos it WAS MARKED. The guy didn't hold a gun to your head and make you read it, although I agree it should have been marked with what it was spoiling. Which is why I editted it and marked it as such before Pirotic cleaned up.

    sorry about that, the page doesn't refresh after each delete so I didn't see your edit.

    I hear they deviate from the 2nd book a fair bit.

    The following is a spoiler related to president Weasels spoiler.

    Hopefully even more so from the third, since demons sound a bit naff.

    Sooo, getting back on topic.

    Does anyone know if ITV did edit last nights episode? If they did I'll just torrent them or something.

    I want to see my violence in all its brutal glory, godammit!

    I want the third series so badly it's untrue.

    Just as a comment it does start a little weak but then improves until being rather superb by the end.... rather than heroes which seemed to spend the whole series being a bit mediocre so they could have a decent sustainable series afterwards.

    Are FX going to show S2, or will ITV pick that up straight after showing S1?

    It's good, I've been preaching about it to my friends.
    Can't wait for the third series.
    I'd love to bum Dexter's sister as well

    By the way I'd be happy to post it to you, as long as you go into it with your eyes open. Pretend it's really bad fan fic or something, and promise not to accept it as a proper Dexter book until you're maybe a third of the way into it (by which point you'll realise I was underselling the awfulness of it.)
    I finished book 3. Read it right to the end, waiting and hoping for the other shoe to drop and the author to fix things. BY the time I was absolutely sure there was no other shoe I was determined not to let the book beat me, but I can honestly say I have enjoyed very few books less than this one in my entire life.

    Are we doing Dexter stuff in here or in the big thread? Either way the season 3 trailer is up on tv.com Looks like it'll be good but seems to be lacking i the hook. I'm sure it'll be the awesomes though.

    Hopefully it's be a return to the hunting fun that the first series was all about.

    Although if the book has anything to do with it, he'll grow a concience and start seeing ghosts.

    Just recently started watching this and over the last week or two I've caught up to the latest episode. I love being able to watch a bulk of episodes and not having to wait a whole week for each one.

    Anyone else recently watch it or re-watch it? Brilliant show.
