Netflix Series

29 Jun

Have you watched this television series? I think it showed originally on Showtime.  (This picture was taken off of Google for the 8th Season).  The entire show is about Dexter Morgan who is a blood splatter expert working in Miami, Florida for the Miami Metro Police Department.  What people don’t know is that secretly Dexter is a serial killer.  Now saying serial killer brings to mind a bad person – an insane person, right?  I guess in a way it still rings true but Dexter is a little different.  He only kills people that deserve it.  Sounds weird huh?  We are talking about people that kill that get off in the court system or people that kill that others don’t know about.

While it was on Showtime, we didn’t watch it… you know for obvious reasons – we didn’t have Showtime 🙂 Snorts!  But when it went to Netflix, I put that show in my queue so fast and started watching it… all eight seasons!

Now we couldn’t watch while the purr things or Houdini was still awake.  Me and mom had to wait until they went to bed and were asleep and then we would watch 1-2 shows every night.

Now I want you to think about this.  There was eight seasons and about 12-13 shows per season.  So mom and this little oinker invested probably around 100 hours of watching around 104 shows.  No, we didn’t do this overnight.  Yes, we did it during downtime.  What?  Can’t a pig have a favorite show?

If you haven’t watched the shows, I’m not going to give anything away.  But I will tell you that we went through a LOT of drama, a lot of killings, a lot of twists and a lot of plots that made your mouth hang wide.  I started to know the characters like family.  I grew fond of some of them.  And after watching the shows, me and mom would discuss what happened.

The first three seasons we watched within a matter of weeks.  They kept me on my piggy hooves while covering one eye and jumping at surprises.  Yes, they were that good.

Season 4 through 7 were okay.  Something happened along the way.  You see Dexter was trying to be ‘normal’.  He even got married and had a baby.  All of this was great.

Then there was season 8, the final season.  To us, this is where things seemed rushed.  Have you ever read a book that was so good all the way through it and then in the last chapter you learn that everything was a dream?  Well, it was kind of like this to us.  It was so good but the last show of season 8 left us wanting.  There was so much more that could have happened.  I mean, yes there are only so many killings that a serial killer can do but it just felt empty here.  Too many things happened in the last show that your brain doesn’t have time to process it.  Then when it does, your brain is like WTF just happened… pardon the bad language.

Have you seen this series?  What did you think?  Discuss.

      It took some time brother. Me and mom wheedled through all 8 seasons through the great shows and the bad shows and the shows in between that were just okay. All of that work. All of that dedication and the last show really was really? You leave me hanging like this? Mom said she could have wrote the last show better. Heck, they need to make a movie now to tie some things up because to us the ending would have been better if they just said everything was a darn dream. I hate that. XOXO – Bacon
      Bro – they need to get series there so we can talk about how bad the last show was together – snorts

        Oh yes. I’ve heard about that show too. We don’t get into a lot of ‘weekly’ shows here. It takes way too much time. And who needs television, when we are the main attraction. Right bro? XOXO – Bacon

    Watched the first couple of season when it was on Showtime then when I eliminated that from our satellite package, lost tract. It was a good show (and at times quite frightening). Michael C. Hall is a terrific actor, loved him in Six Feet Under.

      We missed the party train on Showtime and just started watching it on Netflix. It was great but the last show… I still shake my piggy head on that one. XOXO – Bacon

    We used to wait and wait for each episode. I delighted in smugly telling my coworkers a serial killer was my favorite show…it was a bad job, those people deserved to be a bit frightened…
    The series was a bit uneven; some seasons better than others, but the last seemed to be thrown together.
    It’s a book series, too. Fans of the books were not happy with the tv production

      Snorts! Yes your co-workers deserved to be chilled to the bone with that bit of information from you. I’m glad it wasn’t just me and mom who thought the last season was to hurried – especially the last show. XOXO – Bacon

    I haven’t seen it but I have to admit you have me intrigued. My option at this point would be renting it from the video shop. We are starting to get netflix here but apparently they don’t have that show and many others yet. I will have a look at it! ❤

      It really is good – especially the first 3 seasons. Then it gets a little slow but is still intriguing. A great rent Auntie Sharon for a couch potato weekend! XOXO – Bacon

       

This piggy would love to snort with you :)
