Hell Yes.

Thank you for the info beenie. I would set the DVR to record except I already have the season in DivX format :) 

Still would be awesome to watch again on TV, though.

What, you can't burn your DivX's onto DVD?  ;)

DEXTER Season Two

Now, it would be wholly irresponsible of me to tell you that the first two episodes of Season 2 of Dexter have made it out onto teh_interwebz.

And I would certainly never provide you with a torrent link  http://www.isohunt.com/torrents/?ihq=dexter and suggest you download and enjoy these episodes nearly two months before the official start of Season 2.

Because that would be wrong. Very, very wrong.

That's so weird, gbeenie. Those same two episodes materialized onto my computer a few days ago. I thought it was divine intervention and I'm not one to argue with deities, so I watched them. Somehow this show amazingly kept up with the pace the first season started on. Good writing, good acting, good directing, etc... me like.

AND it's not an adaptation of the second book (the first season was based on the first novel, Darkly Dreaming Dexter), so I can finally read the thing without spoiler-worry.

Lots of "pre-air" stuff is appearing on the internet: Sarah Conner Chronicles and Reaper are two notable ones, but I really enjoyed Chuck: A computer geek accidentally downloads the entire database of NSA and CIA secrets into his head and especially Pushing Daisies: A guy can revive dead people for one minute.  What sounds like a thriller is actually a very quirky comedy, directed by Barry Sonnenfeld as if he was making a Addams Family/Edward Scissorhands movie, and written by the guys behind Wonderfalls.  Check 'em out if they magically appear on your hard-drive.

Where'd you hear that?  the person that introduced me to the show keeps telling me that it is based off it..... But he's also been reading the first book now and says it's considerably different from the show after the first few chapters

Interesting... I do remember reading that the 2nd season was NOT based on Dearly Devoted Dexter, but that seems to be contradicted by some other people. I shall look into this but if someone else can find out that'd be cool too!

I read it some damn place. And, yeah, the show has many differences from the book, which are mostly to its benefit. While the book gives a better depiction of the nature of Dexter's desire to kill, the story is told entirely from his perspective, and offers very little in terms of the supporting characters. In that regard, I think the show definitely exceeds the book. Also, the reveal of the Ice Truck Killer's identity is handled WAY better on the show.

After seeing the first 2 episodes of season 2, they're definitely not patterned after the second book (which I've read).  The first season, while adding or removing a few things still had the same basic story.  Doesn't look like that will be the case with season 2. 

The only thing from the books that I wish they would have tried to tackle in the show is the relationship between Dexter and Rita's son.

I heard they were recasting Coby for the very reason that they wanted a better kid-actor in the part I assumed for future storylines.

Remember they're probably hoping to make this last a few more season, I wouldn't be surprised if they get to stuff from the second book eventually.

I thought that kid looked different.  I haven't seen any episodes since the season 1 finale aired.

I have wanted to see this show since I started hearing about it.  I've given up acquiring things...er...stealthily since I finished...er...stealthily acquiring the fifth season of Penn & Teller: Bullshit!, but I may have to look into...er...acquiring Dexter.

What?  You think I'm talking about downloading?  Screw you, I'm talking about shoplifting!  Cha!
