    Showtime, notorious for their leaks, has fallen victim to leaks yet again, as Dexter made its way online a couple of days ago.

     

    “Those Kinds of Things”

    Season 6, episode 1 (episode 61 overall), written by Scott Buck (#13), directed by John Dahl (#8)

    Guest starring Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, Brea Grant, Aimee Garcia, Joe Brotherton, Kristen Miller

     

    This really felt like classic Dexter.  The show is very light and happy with lots of humour and Dexter being socially awkward.  The show looks to be back on track and could earn its series nomination.

     

    A few very strange visual choices prevent “Those Kinds of Things” from being a directing or editing submission and it does not seem like a writing or acting tape either.  It was a fine episode, but its standalone qualities probably exclude it from the series reel.

     

    Edward James Olmos had just a couple scenes, neither of which were substantial, but he will surely get a nomination like the last three Special Guest Stars.  Cn the other hand, Colin Hanks (who is really not a teenager anymore) could very well end the show’s 100% success rate with billed “Special Guest Stars” getting Emmy nominations.  He just seems too young and could be overshadowed by Olmos’s name.

    Just caught “Those Kinds Of Things” online. Very strong premiere, arguably stronger than just about all of the mess that was Season 5. I loved the return of that classic “Dexter” humor, and this seasons case — Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, and the water snakes — seem like a genuinely compelling one. 

     

    Really quite excited to have “Dexter” back in top form. I’ve got high hopes for this season.

    Something felt very different in this. I’m not sure what it was. But it was better than all of last season.

    Anyone that thought this was a return to form is wrong.

    Yawn.  I thought this was too formulaic/episodic, especially for a season premiere.  The season-long arc with Olmos might be interesting, but there wasn’t enough here to be certain.  Also, that shootout  was pretty stupid and pointless (I kept wishing Quinn would take one to the head).

    Haven’t seen this leaked season premiere yet, but I’m absolutely tired of the circular nature of this series. Anyone who discovers Dexter’s true identity is either killed or sent on their merry way. I’m awaiting the episode where Deb discovers who her brother really is, at which point we might have a moral conundrum on this show worth talking about.

    Shootout? Maybe I saw an edited version of the premiere, but there was no shootout in the episode I watched.

    You did not see an edited version; the shootout was just forgettable and “pointless”.

     

    It was when Quinn and Deb were at dinner and Quinn went to the bathroom.

    Yeah, that shootout was retarded.  It’s going to turn into Quinn feeling emasculated by Deb the youtube video hero.

    Reviews are saying that the premiere and Mos are good, but the two after and Olmos and Hanks are bad.

    Mos wasn’t in the premiere I don’t think and it wasn’t good.  Unless I missed him somehow and it was an episode that didn’t actually exist.

    Mos Def and the premiere being good do not necessarily mean that Mos Def was good in the premiere. Mos Def was good and the premiere was also good. He’ll probably come in the next episode and make up for their alleged mediocrity.

    I thought the season premeire was ok. The opening was nicely done. The water snakes coming out of the victim`s stomach was a little hard to watch ( I hate snakes). I think the high school reunion storyline went on a little bit to long. The shootout came out of nowhere, and was pretty random. I hope the season-long arc is a really good one this year. It wasn`t a bad start to the season, but I was hoping for a little bit more.
