I wouldn't recommend downloading anything. I rechecked it, once you close the pop-ups, it plays smoothly.<quoted text>That site spends a lot of time buffering and pandering for premium service. I'll download the torrent and watch it again...I promise. In the beginning of this conversation I said that after this season, a lot of good writing would be lost. Your passion for the subject speaks volumes on behalf of my statement. As well, your concern for qualities like loyalty and integrity speak to your metamorphosis and growth as an actor and person. It wasn't always the case but I'm feeling lucky to have an internet buddy like you.
You don't need to defend Ize to me...we're doing fine. He does need a good fight every once in a while to flush the dark thoughts from his system, other than that, he's a big, cuddly Teddy Bear of a pal.
I like passion & passionate people even in fiction, you're right. Just having fun with cyber buddies, no biggie. I almost backed into Dexter by accident but since you appeared to like it and are based in Miami, hey I thought hey we have something in common afterall.
But like I said even though it's TV, I couldn't turn off the mental gears completely (although that grueling 4 day marathon can really screw with your head at times).
Plus my world has expanded, not geographically like before, but in a much broader/deeper sense of the word over recent years. This seemingly out of left field choice of lib/performance arts probably helped shape that -- or maybe it was the other way around and I was rebelling against the old order, instinctively drawn to what seemed more natural... and it was a perfect match, a calling if you will. Who knows, though as Life seems so mysterious & it's really hard to be objective about one's self.
I used to think I was pretty fearless, but have since realized that a person can be fearless or tough physically but a coward morally & cripple emotionally. I don't want that; would much rather be a balanced human being -- and loyalty, integrity, compassion have to a part of that even if they come at the expense of EGO or naked ambition...
so maybe that's why I subconsciously relate to not just Deb Morgan but Dexter too (the whole wanting to become more "human".... let's not over-think it though, haha, it's just silly entertainment right?)
I do disagree with you on the writing part. Unless you mean the entire concept of the series, in which case yeah looking back to around 2006-2007, Dexter would have probably the best thing on TV.
But that shouldn't excuse the subsequent assassination of character, plausibility & sheer self-satisfied laziness (had a misfortune of seeing one podcast with the new showrunners, mercy are they delusional or what!)
Guess we compartmentalize things differently. You don't seem to separate the hotness factor or lack thereof of Jennifer Carpenter -- and comparison her to (prime) Brigitte Bardot is pretty unfair, LOL.... while I find Debra Morgan to be quite likable and admirable, flaws and all.
Anyway, I'll try to drop by later today, if you feel like chatting some more about silly TV fare. It's definately enjoyable and blast from the past for me and a change of pace from the complicated world of "real-life"
