    did you stop watching Dexter or just stop talking about it on the podcast? it was a little slow but the end of the season is picking up quite nicely so if it’s the former then you aughta catch up.

    daedroug, Haven’t stopped watching Dexter. For the last few episodes of the podcast we’ve tried to keep it from running too long by talking mainly about the shows that we all, or at least two of us, have something to say about it that week. I guess this has left Dexter off the chat list recently. But, I agree that the season has built nicely to the last few episodes and can’t wait for the season finale on Sunday.
