Dexter Comes to CBS

Dexter comes to CBS!Let’s say I’m not the only person walking around on two legs right now without cable. I know, it’s almost hypothetical at this point, but just go with me here. If that were the case, then the recent announcement that CBS will be airing the first seasons of “Dexter”, the massive Showtime hit about a forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer, is some very fine news to those of us who lack the pay channel.

Daily Variety got word this morning that The Eye has plans to air all 12 eps of “Dexter: Season One” (which you can get through Evilshop right here) with some minor cuts, more for commercial inclusion than anything else, since after its grisly premiere the show’s not much more bloody than “CSI”. And if it makes you feel any better, Showtime president Bob Greenblatt oversaw the cuts to the show himself…

Look for “Dexter” on CBS starting February 17th; I know I sure as hell will!

    Dexter without the nudity, gore, and language?

    Well said Nomad. Well said…as far as the Season 1 DVD, get it. It’s worth it. Of course, I’m a Dexter-phile. LOL…I’ve picked up all 3 books in the last week…and I’m halfway through the 3rd book right now after starting it at 9am this morning…if you get the chance to pick up the books…GET THEM. NOW. GO. NOW.

    yaaaay..i can finally see this show. Was on the verge of getting season 1 on dvd. Are there any spectacular extras on there so I should get them anyway?

    As for Carpenter…um…yum. nuff said.

    Wow I think she’s totally recognizable. And after the [REC] remake comes out her profile may skyrocket.
    She does damn fine work that’s for sure. I really like what she’s done so far.

    I was talking to Carpenter a few weeks ago and she was saying how she was hoping this would never go to network syndication because she values her low-profile actor status. Eek!
