New fandom, general wtf-ery

Damn you Showtime, why must you cost extra???

Showtime has a free weekend this month at my GF's house, and we've become addicted to a new show there: Dexter. It's fascinating. Written from the POV of a sociopathic serial killer, who works as a blood spatter analyst (read: he's obsessed with blood, he keeps a slide of the blood of each of his victims). The hook is that he has enough of a moral backbone that he only kills people the cops can't catch.

The voice overs (reminds me of film noir, except it's set in Miami so it's bright and pastel) are really interesting, in that he's such an alien, emotionally. He doesn't get love, or sex, no empathy whatsoever.

And the story arc promises to be extremely interesting. Damn them for costing more than basic cable! *glowers*

The series is based on a book; I'll have to see if I can get a hold of it.

On a general WTF note: on the way to work, I saw a cable man truck, with the words "Power Dump!" on the back. I didn't add the exclamation mark. Weird.
