Did they broadcast the end in Australia yet?

Another question: Did you try Deadwood yet? What is it like? (I only saw a few Youtube clips and was semi-impressed about them.)

DEXTER, a Showtime production, is a really well done story about a forensic blood spatter expert in Miami. The star has a few character flaws, not the least of which is that he is a serial killer who only kills other serial killers. Its an excellent show.

Ive seen "Rome" and found it kind of phony. Deadwood moves waay too slow. The Sopranos was spotty (they had entire seasons that left one unfulfilled).

Oh my indeedy doody yes.


Have you seen it yet?????




No, I have not tried Deadwood yet.....hmmm.....I have a week "off" (been subpoenaed so I have to go to court, which means wading about in my files...grrrrrrr.....no rest for the wicked) so I might have a look for it.

Re Dexter: Yeah? I find most forensic shows pathetic, and ridiculous. Does this have real characters?


Re The Sopranos: You're off my "A2k men I'd love to snuggle with" list. You must be a right bastid to satisfy!

I saw it on YouTube, and found it pretty cool. Let's discuss it some time over some onion rings.

HEY rabbit. I watched all the Sopranos shows like a lunatic, so I was a hooked viewer. (I can do a Pauley Walnuts impression like it were he speaking). However, ya gotta admit, that whole season before the last was a weak one, it got so into some Jungian phobia-fest that it was not enetertaining.
Im still making up endings that Tony has suffered after the last show.


Youl love Dexter, hes a really complex character with lotsa issues , and they do nice character studies of his victims. His "almost" getting found out is part of the show's charm.

Don't worry, the show's not the least bit about forensics -- at least no more than Alice was about haute cuisine.

I did like Tony's near-death experiences at the beginning of Season 6 though.

What's wrong with a Jungian phobia fest?

Hey...what's with kvetching about the end of the Sopranos?


What did people want?

Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple strudels, brown paper packages tied up with string? Or goddamn RIBBON?


Wotcha expect?

Tony's brain all over his onion rings? I think many viewers were hoping for a good, old-fashioned hit to top it all off.

A while ago, but I liked Angels in America a lot.

(But could you call it a series? Probably not. Four quite lengthy episodes.)

Good luck with that. (I mean, it's deeply flawed, but I still think it's some of the best American television of the last few years.)
