    Dexter. On CBS.

    For those of you who dont know Dexter is a show on ShowTime. CBS will start airing season 1 starting in Feb. To anyone that hasnt seen it, i highly suggest watching it.

    We've only seen season 2, but have been caught up on recaps of sea. 1 on YouTube. Im not sure how much theyll cut out, but for a serial killer there really isnt too much blood and gore involved, just enough.

    It seems to me the original programing on HBO and SHowTime are just sooo much better than the basic cable channels. Too much crap like Desperate Houswives or reality crap geared towards females.

    I've heard there is going to be quite a bit of editing. Anyway, still should be a great show.

    This is due to the writers strike and the networks are really searching for things to put on the air. I hope they don't hack up Entourage or Weeds. Great shows as well.

    Re: Dexter. On CBS.

    Dexter is one of the best shows on tv right now. It has taken over the gap left in my heart after Sopranos ended. Now, I am not saying it is as good as Sopranos, but is is right up there IMO.

    My brother is very high on this show. I think I will try and watch season 1 on DVD though instead of CBS if there is going to be lots of editing.

    I haven't seen it, but I totally agree with your assessment of shows on major networks. I very seldom watch anything on any major network. I think The Office is pretty much it. I watched 24 for a while too, but that's about it.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll have to check it out.

    Re: Dexter. On CBS.

    I gave Dexter DVDs First Season as a XMAS present to a family member. It was their favorite show.

    Heard the writers are going to lose more than $150M, the amount they were striking for in the beginning. Looks likmjke the TV season will not be setttled until start of next fall. Hope Jay Leno has enough jokes to last himself.
