  • Another awesome ep - this one keeps getting better

    This show's become a personal favourite (like the unfortunate Smith; hopefully THIS one rates well)...

    Another excellent episode. I was glad to see the supporting characters getting more screen time and being fleshed out a bit more than in the previous episode, including Dexter's sister's boss and her grumpy colleage. Now it's "obligatory latino sidekick"'s turn; hopefully we get a bit more substance to his character to elevate him out of one-dimensional foil teritory. Not that he's a bad character by any means, and the actor does a great job, but, I dunno, I guess I tend to be overly susceptible to noticing when a character's not doing that much. The storyline of the serial drink-driver, hit-and-runner didn't reeeeally do it for me, in simple plot terms, but thanks to the great writing as seems to be a staple for the series, the episode still came out on top. Nice one all!
