Episode Reviews

 

There’s no doubting that television has changed dramatically in the last few years, particularly in regards to the acclaimed serialized fiction shows that have ground out a new niche as cinematic storytelling per excellence. Think of how Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead, and Breaking Bad have utterly dwarfed episodic entertainment tailored to casual audiences. Randomly switch on Homeland midseason and you’ll be completely lost. Ten years ago, the hottest property on network TV would have allowed for a cave dweller to tune into any episode and get an hour’s satisfaction. This new form revolution certainly applies to Dexter, a show with its origins in literature adaptation and the narrative style to prove it. In many ways, you have to review the whole year’s pickings to get a real picture of where the show is headed, a better analysis of the quality on show. »
