It's honestly shocking how fucking terrible those last few seasons were. Much like Game of Thrones I have zero desire to rewatch any of the earlier seasons and even question why I liked them so much. If you haven't finished Dexter, don't do so. Everything after season 4 is pretty much pure shit. John Lithgow is a goddamn treasure.

Why come up with new ideas when you can reboot/extend shows that ended within the last 10 years?

Yeah, I read what the ending was a while back and don't really have any desire at all to go back to it.

Game of Thrones is so much better on every level than Dexter ever was, even if it fell apart like shit. Dexter at its best was an insanely dumb popcorn show, and it became absolute pure wretched shit by the end.

I agree it was never close to as good as Game of Thrones

I'll be welcoming of a Dexter return. Sure 5 of the seasons were hot garbage, but it was good/great in the other seasons.

There are no new ideas. Everything is a remake. Sometimes they just come up with a new name and pretend it's original.

Dexter started to have promise again in like Season 7 or whatever it was before the incest angle.

Somehow Dexter managed to make the incest angle completely uninteresting

The last 2(?) seasons pretty much revolve completely around Deb wanting to fuck Dexter.

Dexter was ahead of the game with the incest angle. Step brotherrrrrr.

why is it incest when they're not blood-related

typical liberal misframing

I don't think that's right because she knows the ice truck killer was his brother before that.

that was the thing, she was like "do I have feelings for my brother, wtf?" and then it was like, "oh shit we're not related and you're emotionally unavailable? gimme the D"

the show should have ended with the John Lithgow season. Dexter should have just killed himself at the end of that one.

John Lithgow was the only redeeming thing from any of the last 4-5 seasons. The Colin Hanks/Edward James Olmos storyline was insultingly bad.

I thought it was entertaining, but yeah I'll probably pass on a second season.

I quit after a few episodes, just not my cup of tea. All I heard after that is that they got real weird with it.
