Anyone seen or heard of this show?

It's in its 2nd season, and I just recently heard of it. Maybe me, and everyone I know here is out of the loop, but as far as I know, this show isnt very well known.

Check out this clip.



I just started watching it, and it's an awesome show. Great premise, excellent story line and it's actually pretty funny too.

Highly recommended.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

Dexter is very good. I saw the whole first season last year. It has the best season ender ever. It could have run one year and you would have been left satisfied. No loose ends. Now the new season starts and I will be watching for sure again.

http://www.icetruck....134fd658dcbbdcd this was something I posted before that comes from the show.

I recommend buying it. Can you take DVDs back after opening them? Just give the 1st episode a run and decide if you wan to cntinue.

I dare anyone to watch 1 episode, then stop. It cant be done.

Looks pretty hip, I'd watch it except a) I don't have a TV and b) I spend pretty much every waking moment either at school or at work. I hate my life. But not really.
