Spoiler Alert Thursday
We have really reached the dregs of the television season: the “Christmas Episode” of “NCIS,” a seemingly Halloween themed episode of “Unforgettable,” and, of course, the most recent episode of “Dexter.”
“Unforgettable” ought to be “Unmentionable,” so I won’t.
As always, the “Christmas Episode” of “NCIS” is by far the worst episode of the year–easily worse than the “Thanksgiving Episode.” The story was dumb and like I could give a fuck about Tony’s inability to commit or yet another plot about an American being knocked up by some Afghan tribal prince and an attempt to abduct the mother and/or baby. Because “NCIS” seems dead (anyone even remember the season-arc conspiracy?!), I’ve started a rumour which has not yet been picked up on. A spin-off with a backdoor pilot/two-night-TV-event that will be called “Toby’s Tales” or “The Fornell Files” because the only character that doesn’t totally suck on “NCIS” is the rarely seen FBI agent Tobias Fornell.
It turns out that the “big reveal” by the psychologist was not that Dexter is a psychopath but that Deb is in love with Dexter. It seems like an especially cruel storyline for Deb given that Michael C. Hall left Jennifer Carpenter for Julia Styles–now Deb has to be secretly in love with the character played by her ex-husband? Unlike Adam, I’m glad that Angel is still alive. I like the pairing of sad-sack Angel with self-destructive Quinn. Will Dexter or Angel just outright kill Masuka’s “intern”? My fear, of course, is that the intern will be kept for next season and “be the villain.”
After making a “Hipster Jon Snow” joke and referring to “Damn It Feels Good to be A Lannister” in the waiting area at the vet yesterday, I think we’ve resolved to re-watch the series this week. Just as “winter is coming” in Westeros, winter is also theoretically coming here in central Canada–other than that it is pouring rain and eleven degrees today.
