Our 10 Favorite Killers on 'Dexter'

  • FEARnet
Our 10 Favorite Killers on 'Dexter'
They always say that a hero (or anti-hero in this case) is only as good as his villain. And 'Dexter' has seen his fair share of villains over the course of the show's now 8 year history. Each individual season has boasted a "big bad," a main killer whose story arc is spread across the entire 12 episode run. In season 1, it was the Ice Truck Killer (Christian Camargo). Season 2 was technically Dexter himself as Miami Metro was after the Bay Harbor Butcher. Season 3 gave us Miguel Prado (Jimmy Smits). Season 4 is arguably the biggest of the big bad’s and unanimously a fan favorite the Trinity Killer (John Lithgow). Season 5 was a group of killers led by Jordan Chase (Johnny Lee Miller). Season 6, things got biblical with the Doomsday Killer (Colin Hanks). And last season brought the Ukrainian mob into the equation with Isaak Sirko (Ray Stevenson). And while

Top 10 Dexter Episodes

The shining star of Showtime’s original programming, Dexter, the series which follows the trials and tribulations of a serial killer trying to balance family life and a career in law enforcement with murdering people, has been towing the line between disturbingly affecting and procedural mediocrity for over six seasons.

Whether you can no longer stand the sound of Michael C. Hall’s spell-it-out-for-you voiceovers, the sight of Deb pining for father (and brother) figures, and Laguerta’s leopard prints, or can’t wait to see how much further Dex can descend into moral ambivalence without blowing his cover (like me), no one can deny the success of the series. Therefore, to enrage haters and keep fans satiated until the show returns for its seventh season this fall, myself and a frequent commenter on my reviews of the sixth season, Christopher Elphick, have compiled a list of the best Dexter episodes thus far.

Jean Giraud obituary

French comic book artist internationally known by his pen names Moebius and Gir

The artist Jean Giraud was principally known for his work on comic books under two pen names. As Gir, the co-creator of Blueberry, one of France's most popular strips, his brushwork was detailed and realistic; as Moebius, he used intricate, visually arresting penwork to explore the subconscious in his creations Arzach, Le Garage Hermétique (The Airtight Garage) and L'Incal (The Incal). But Giraud, who has died of cancer aged 73, had an impact on the visual arts that went beyond comics. He was seen as a figurehead linking bandes dessinées with modernism and nouveau réalisme. As the co-creator of Métal Hurlant magazine, he took comics to an older, more literate audience. In cinema, his fans ranged from Federico Fellini to Hayao Miyazaki and his style influenced dozens of others, including Ridley Scott, George Lucas, James Cameron and Luc Besson.

V: The Original Series”, a close encounter with ham and cheese

V: The Original Series, a close encounter with ham and cheese

(197 minutes, 2 parts)

Directed by Kenneth Johnson

Written by Kenneth Johnson

1983, Us, NBC

From the get go, V does itself a slight disservice. In a move that would drive even the barely conscious to leap up and yell “thief!” this two-part miniseries rolls its opening credits to a rip-off of Bernard Hermann’s inimitable theme for North by Northwest. The mischievous, whirling melodies and propulsive brass of that great score are unmistakable and no amount of tinkering and fudging and key manipulation can excise the Hermann from the music. So, as a series of largely unfamiliar faces (at least presumably unfamiliar, back in 1983) is introduced in a manner bordering on hammy, one is left with the uneasy feeling that they are in the hands of either a witless parodist or a guileless plagiarist. In light of this, some relief can

Blu-Ray Review: ‘V: The Complete Second Season’ Fails to Save Sci-Fi Reboot

Chicago – After two increasingly rocky seasons, ABC’s soulless reboot of Kenneth Johnson’s ’80s miniseries and subsequent TV show “V” was finally cancelled. It ended the sci-fi serial on a tragic cliffhanger that was very much in keeping with the show’s status as a muddled downer. Though some fans have signed petitions to get the show renewed on a different network, it’s doubtful that “V” will garner a large audience outside of Comic Con conventions.

With its morose ensemble and cheap anti-Obama fearmongering, there was very little here to keep viewers engaged, aside from the loud rises in music that sound before every commercial break (and, in some cases, after every scene change). Leading ladies Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin had ample screen time to perfect the art of the pensive, simmering stare, yet as good as the actresses were, the writers gave them little to do but engage in hour-long stare-offs.

V (2009): Mother’s Day: High Resolution Photos

V (2009): Mother’s Day: High Resolution Photos have premiered. We reviewed V (2009): Season 2, Ep. 10: Mother’s Day earlier. V (2009): Mother’s Day’s plot synopsis: “Anna (Morena Baccarin) is focused on having Lisa (Laura Vandervoort) breed with Tyler (Logan Huffman) to ensure the evolution of the Visitors, while Erica (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Diana (Jane Badler) enlist Lisa to stage a coup against Anna and remove her from power before humanity is destroyed. Erica and the Fifth Column join Lisa in the attempted coup, which has devastating results. Also in the episode, Marc Singer, who played freedom fighter Mike Donovan on the original “V” series, guest stars as Lars Tremont, a member of a top secret organization of high-ranking military and government leaders from around the globe who have long suspected that the Visitors are very much not here in peace.” V (2009): Mother’s Day also starred Mark Hildreth,

  • ScifiMafia
Three, oh yes, Three main character deaths are expected on tonight’s season finale of ABC’s alien invasion reboot series, V.

“I think that the people who die are going to affect everyone in different ways. The people they chose, they chose for a reason because they will mean something. I think it’s going to create an entirely new dynamic for everybody. Nobody is going to be unscathed.”

“There will be some interesting betrayals, which I always enjoy, and there
