"Tonight's the night."
Got around to watching the season premier of Dexter.
Amazing show, really. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys thrillers. Not sure how I feel about the way they're handling his "emotions", but I think I get it. I used to be really confused over it, though. The way the show is written, it almost seems like they go out of their way to paint him as a cold, calculating, emotionless killer. I'm not fond of terms like "sociopath" and "psychopath" (how well do we even know his capability to empathise?), but he is definitely impaired when it comes to relating to others. Of course, it's been obvious since near the beginning that he has much more emotional depth than stated, so the real twist here is how he's discovering this for himself. For this reason I really like the limited perspective of the narrator; you can see these biases through his own eyes. Little points of incongruity where you realize that he doesn't even understand himself, much less others, as well as he thinks. I think his "delusions" of Harry can be seen as a manifestation of these contradictions between the way he sees things and the way he actually feels. Be it intentional, or simply inconsistent writing... the end result is absolutely brilliant. I always expect a lot from this show, and it never fails to deliver.
Well... there's still no Cyberdoakes. But I can let that slide.
