When I started this site I told myself that I not only want it to be an outlet for all of my eSports stuff, but also a place to write about all of my interests. Finally I am going to live up to that idea by dipping my toes into blogging about television, one of my loves. Here goes nothing.
There will be spoilers.
Dexter marked a new era in my life. Back in 2008 I was 15, and watching grade-A shit on television. I spent more time playing games than I would watching shows in my free time. There was nothing that I was excited to watch except maybe survivor with my dad. My parents have been watching HBO and Showtime for as long as I could remember. I always found it interesting and so much more enjoyable that they could swear on TV. I popped my premium TV cherry online. I sat at my desk and navigated to Showtime’s website. There they had the entire first episode of the first season of Dexter online to watch. I got some chips and a diet coke and proceeded to watch the episode.
I was hooked. Deb might say “fucking hooked!” The concept, plot, acting, and quality was something I have never experienced before on the small screen. Dexter as a character was so intriguing to me. I had the hots for Deb. My netflix queue was lit up catching up on the series. I watched until there was nothing left and I was in agony waiting for the new season to air. It was the first time I spent time away from the show thinking about what happened and analyzing. The ice truck killer was literately in my dreams. The seasons came by as I navigated my way thought high school, and I look back seeing myself mature with the show.
