Dexter Season 8. Well, where to begin? Already people are starting to voice their dissent at the horribly weak ending to such a fantastic (at least at the beginning) show. Here's my addition to add to the growing multitudes...

Dexter was one of those increasingly rare shows when it first began. Compulsive viewing almost by definition, the first four seasons were are combination of mesmerizing characters, well constructed plot threads and macabre humour.

I started watching Arrow with an open mind as with many TV incarnations of super heroes, it could have quite easily been a complete turkey of a show.

Needless to say, I was very much pleasantly surprised to discover that this show is actually pretty awesome. Gone are the bloodless fights of Smallville and other such toned down versions of super hero stories. In their place is a TV show that produces relatively gritty fight scenes where actual lives are in jeopardy and indeed lost in a hail of arrows and bullets.

Now, as you can probably tell by the title of this review, there are striking similarities to a certain caped crusader that dresses like a bat, hardly a… Read more
