Back with a Dexter recap after missing an episode. Episode 6 of Season 5 is entitled Everything is Illumenated.
We start out with Dexter packing up his stuff at the old home, and Deb insists he take the apartment back as she is “staying” with Quinn. Meanwhile, Lumen is preparing a disguise, having stayed in Miami due to the trauma a mere airport search causes her due to her past torture. Lumen is obviously going after the bad guys still.
The Chief lets Deb and the rest of the team know he doesn’t think too highly of their work thus far on the Santa Muerta case. He tells LaGuerta any more deaths mean her job is in jeopardy, and mentions the IAD issues and Batista’s bar fight for good measure.
Quinn is going to be pursuing dexter with the help of Robocop, i.e. Peter Weller, who plays the cop that LaGuerta busted for narcotics in her Continue reading
Almost 3 years ago to the day, I write a few posts discussing some of Television that was into, on was titled Good TV Returns. I preface this post and the old one by saying, I don’t watch much TV. Back then, school and life were a distraction, now life and film/gaming/this blog are a distraction. I have a hard time sitting down to watch television on a regular basis. My viewing comes through DVDs, and online at places like Hulu. But perhaps the biggest reason I don’t watch TV, is I feel that the best shows never get a chance and are canceled well before they are ready to be done.
The old post mentioned Burn Notice, Dexter, Life and a previous post talked about Journeyman. Half of those shows are still around. 50% is a pretty good rate in TV these days I hear, but what would it be if I had been watching a lot more shows? Journeyman and Rome, both featuring Kevin McKidd were gone before they could get far. Deadwood was also cut short fairly abruptly and there never has been a replacement for it. Burn Notice continues, Continue reading
As if things haven’t been going poorly already… it’s finals week, which means late-night coffee-fueled all-nighters as one struggles to find the melding of what is possible to get done to what is expected of your work (and what you expect of yourself).
So here is my final character at I’d say 85% done.
Original concept belongs to original artist. He is half lo-poly,
half sub-div proxy, and he’s almost ready to combine.
The remaining 15% is the rest of his crazy hair (the bear/eyebrow peice is
at least double the polys of the face :O ), and after that I need to add details, like
wrinkles and such. Then I have 3 other classes to worry about. Joy!
oh, AND…. check out Journeyman on NBC, which I think airs on Monday nights?! It’s quantum leap for the modern generation, and stars Lucius Verenus of Rome… be sure to check out his girlfriend from the past who met him in the future (watch the show) she is super-dee-duper hotttt! Is that how you’re supposed to say that?
Anyways… probably more at some point soon…

Well I am already about 3 weeks into the new term, and wanted to post some reviews of stuff I had watched / listened to / whatever. However that list got quite large over my break, and now I find myself short on time… But here are some summaries…
Burn Notice: two words Bruce Campbell! Bruce gets to be… Bruce, which is always worth watching, and the rest of the show, not bad either. Gabrielle Anwar is sometimes hit-and-miss with the Irish accent but, the plotlines are pretty good and the end of the season questions make me anxious for next summer. Burn Notice has gone on to be quite successful, leading the ratings for cable television shows.
Dexter: What can I say, like Suspect Zero this is about a serial killer of serial killers essentially, unlike Suspect Zero this is highly comedic. A black comedy that excels at all parts of the formula. Enjoyed this so much, I have put in for the original novel at the local library… who knows if I will ever get time to read it.
Life: Nice new show on NBC, interesting plot, with a couple of great characters… check this one out if you have the time, it’s well worth it. I wish I could stick to a regular tv schedule to see this.
Hope to update again real soon, with some music/games/movies thoughts… and if anyone is out there, would love some responses, even if I have already talked to you about any of this, or by contrast have no clue who you are.
