Dexter jumping the shark?
15 November 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was really really disappointed with this episode.

Till this one i was quite pleased with season 6, it doesn't have the "24- feel" of the fifth one, it was back to the storytelling i like. The story has time to develop, everything is thought-out, story plot mistakes are very rare, but now this one.

I think Dexter really jumped the shark, he was acting completely out of character, like he was on drugs or something, although he still is aware of his code (because he says so in one scene), he doesn't follow it at all. Plus the new "virtual Brian" was really set in place badly, when Harry is used, it is much more subtle, but this chimera was really bad.

I still have hope for the rest of the season, but i think it's time Dexter doesn't overstay his welcome.
