Dexter and Homeland -- holiday viewing.

Thanks to whoever mentioned Video on Demand, we got to watch the first episode of HOMELAND which I had accidentally erased.

Meanwhile, we blew through the whole season of Dexter in about four days.

So I have this sore gum and I've been kind of soaking my mouth in salt water -- and by that method I found out how truly funny I think the Debra character is.  I mean, I kept almost spewing the salt water.  It wasn't so much what she said, though the foul mouth routine is pretty funny, but the way she said it.

And it wasn't just the foul mouth lines that got me laughing.  It was also how often she did it -- just with unexpected line readings.  Then she'd go an do some amazingly authentic emotional acting.  Fantatastic.


They are going to have to end this show, because they've just made Dexter a truly bad guy.  Going to be hard to root for him from now on.

Glad that was helpful. Have you checked out HBOGO on line? If you have a tablet, smart phone or PC you have access to every episode of every original series HBO has ever produced, plus a number of movies and specials via this service and there's no added charge. Simply go to on your PC or download the app for your iPAD or smartphone and enter your bendbroadband email address and password to authenticate and away you go! I use this while traveling, or when I'm in a location where there's no TV but I have my iPad. John
