it was one of the defining shows of my teenage years. dexter coming back feels weirdly nostalgic and surreal at the same time. i’m beyond excited. :nooo:

I still can’t believe this is happening. I’m so hyped. One of my favorite shows of all time getting the ending it deserves I hope.

I tried watching Dextor, but was surprised how much it really pales in comparison to Hannibal. 

Maybe I’ll give it another try.

Showtime in the mid-2000's to early/mid 2010's was so on point!

they are not that comparable, i think; it's only the serial killer motif that connects them; otherwise, the psychological focus, the characterization, and the structurality feel very different.

Ok cool, but why is this getting rebooted but we haven’t heard anything about the (possibly now-cancelled) Weeds reboot? :messga::bradley:

Dextor and Hannibal are both crime dramas, adapted from novels, they mostly rely on procedural format. They both romanticize a handsome serial killer, who is hiding the fact that he is a serial killer, while working with law enforcement to catch other killers.

But I do agree they feel very different.

Dextor is fun and a head of its time, but I'm not sure it holds a candle to the poetic, clever, moody, and homoerotic story telling of Hannibal. 

But I'd love to see them both get another season.

i think the poetic quality of hannibal is generated by (and emanates from) psychology itself being psychologized: the vibe, or the concept, that is aimed at by the show is to visualize the processes of consumption (how the mind eats a person up, paralleled by how a person is actually eaten up by another one), while dexter's psychology is being given a vocal quality: the story of his dark passenger being born and its need to be fed is narrated by him (by extension, it's also spoon-fed to us, the viewers). it follows that the former is more allusive and implicit, while the latter is more direct and straightforward. if i go with the metaphor you used, i'd say that hannibal is telling the story from the point of view of the dark room by visualizing the workings of the mind (hannibal's, a psychology expert's, own psychology), while dexter is telling the story from the point of view of the candle itself by narrating himself (dexter's firing needs, or, conversely, him being on fire, or, paradoxically, his dark passenger being the guiding light). :flower:

after watching the show religiously and being incredibly disappointed by the ending i created my own head cannon just so it wasn't all so pathetic. 

Spoiler

i just wanted dexter to leave with hannah and his son. **** the lumberjack gig.

Please say it ain’t so! I was so excited to see problematic Nancy and her crew again. The way the show ended was absolutely devastating—though very fitting for her story.

Personally have a long history with the show. I was 14-15 when it started and my mom even suggested I watch it because it was so funny!:billie: Little did I know I would stan it. It’s so special to me. The only other shows I’ve been that in tune with include: Lost, The Good Wife, Murder, She Wrote, The X Files, and Penny Dreadful, and South Park

i waited for the show to end before starting it and i didn't get the time before it starts again, i cannot believe they don't leave one single show to rot in memories and have to take it out every few years
