Dexter vs. Boardwalk Empire

The Sunday night recapper only had time for one of these shows (her first exam is tonight), and when the rubber meets the road, Dexter isn't road kill.

This is a strong statement, because the Boardwalk Empire episode was the finale. Don't spoil it, we're going to watch it later in the week and bring you some thoughts.

Why Dexter? No, it's not because the guys on Dexter are better looking (not hard, with uggos like Steve Buscemi populating BE), but if you guessed that, you are paying attention. We've just been following Dexter longer, this season is more intense than BE's season (we feel more of an urge to find out what happens on this show), and we care more about the characters. Ok, just Dexter, Lumen, and Deb, but that's two people more than on Boardwalk Empire.

As for Dexter, it was a great episode, but the cliffhanger ending left us spitting and unsatisfied. Dexter season finale next week.

Episode Grade: A
Dexter has been renewed for a sixth season.


  1. hey, are you watching No Ordinary Family? it still pops up on my tv schedule, but i wasn't intrigued enough by the pilot to give it a second chance. I keep wondering if I should. any thoughts?


  2. Why certainly. It is still a pretty cute family show, but the writers like to leave holes, unlikely scenarios, and unbelievable character reactions. It's one of the best new shows, but that says nothing, because they all suck. We wouldn't spend significant time on it, but it's better than you think it is.
