  • Dexter Season 7, Episode 5: “Swim Deep” Recap

    Dexter Season 7, Episode 5: “Swim Deep” Recap

    The title of tonight’s episode is in reference to a revelatory conversation that Deb and Dexter had about their childhood memories of vacationing on the beach. Deb would chase after Dexter, who was always just out of reach due to his speed and ability to dive beneath the waves. It’s a rather elegant narrative device,…

    Dexter Season 7, Episode 4: “Run” Recap

    The final episode of Seinfeld bothered a lot of people because it forced fans of the show to realize that the characters they have known and loved for years are, in fact, complete assholes.

We start off this week with Carrie still in Beirut as she meets with her contact, Fatima, who claims to…

  • Dexter Season 7: Episode 2 “Sunshine and Frosty Swirl”

    Dexter Season 7: Episode 2 “Sunshine and Frosty Swirl”

    The title of tonight’s episode acts as a Chekhov’s gun; a comment on inevitability and foreshadowing that hits like a Mack truck to the face. Dexter is an addict, he’s not likely to change and things will get messy in the end. This was something of a placeholder chapter, a necessary ellipsis to build toward…

  • Homeland – The Smile (9/30/12)

    Homeland – The Smile (9/30/12)

    One of our favorite new shows of last year, Homeland, returns to Showtime tonight and I still can’t decide if I’m more excited for this or for Dexter. Homeland’s season finale last year was one of the most griping hours of television I’ve ever watched. I was literally standing on my feet glued to the…
