5:05 Starting a re-watch of Dexter season 6.
This is a trainbagel, so I’ll be writing and timestamping my thoughts rather than trying to grab wifi at each station.
5:07 The “previously on” segment of Dexter reminds me of the little speech at the beginning of “Quantum Leap”
5:08 Only a lot longer and a lot less upbeat.
Am I the only one who didn’t hate Lumen?
Or season 5 in general.
5:09 I entirely forgot how Dexter got stabbed, but I remember thinking it was funny.
5:10 OH YES IT WAS HILARIOUS.
Everything is a trap
Twist ending Dexter murders YOU.
5:11 I would be happy if, on the last episode of Dexter, they reveal that the entire narration has been his testimony after he has been caught.
5:13 Angel’s sister is likable, beautiful, useful to Dexter, and means the world to Angel.
5:14 This means she is going to die. Do not get attached.
Deb is a good aunt.
5:15 It has clearly never occurred to Dexter that religion might apply to him before.
5:16 Deb is surprised that Dexter has a “code of rules to live by.” Dexter has always thought it made him like a stabbier version of Batman.
5:17 Uuuuugh I forgot Joey Quinn existed.
5:18 It is NEVER too early for a corndog
5:19 LaGuerta is a backstabbing, manipulative snake. We get it. Can we possibly advance her character a little, or at least stop pretending it’s a plot twist every time she does something sneaky?
5:22 To clarify, if Dexter were a real person, I would not be in support of his actions. However, the same goes for Batman and Ronald Reagan.
5:24 Scenes with Edward James Olmos are much weirder now that I know Edward James Olmos isn’t in them.
Snakes are weird too.
5:26 So are high school reunions.
5:27 “So you feel some remorse of course of course and nobody likes the remorse of course”
5:29 Dexter does not have a contingency plan in place for “fist bump”
5:30 So does the school send around a newsletter before the reunion saying “these people’s spouses died horrible deaths since the last time you saw them?”
5:31 Dexter is bad at dancing. Considering making a gif to that effect.
5:32 Edward James Almost waits in the car while Travis kills a fruit man. Later, Travis will eat an apple.
5:33 “Hello, core.”
5:34 Angel majored in adorability in college with a concentration in Porkpie Hattery.
5:35 Deb calls Masuka “Sherlock.” I realize a new crossover I want to see.
5:36 Not sure I will be able to finish the episode before the train gets to my station
5:37 Deb, Quinn is always weird and stupid. Why are you dating him? I take solace in remembering that you do dump him when he starts to get even crazier.
5:38 Harry got a football award for outstanding achievement in ulterior motives.
5:39 Dexter is bad at Jesus, so he asks Batista, who is good at Jesus. Later, Mos Def will show up.
5:40 Batista also has a master’s degree in Beardsmanship.
5:41 I boarded this train at 5:03, started the episode at 5:05 and it’s scheduled to arrive at 5:52. This means I’ll have around 6 minutes of the episode to cover later.
5:43 Angel is ridiculously afraid of people thinking he’s comfortable around boobs.
5:44 When Dexter pulls the “vague as hell” card, why does no one ever seem to call him on it?
5:45 I am bad at math. There will be 4 minutes left in the episode when I get off the train, depending on how long we’re at this station.
5:46 Travis and Gellar’s MO- A dead body’s not creepy enough? Carve a weird glyph into the chest. Still not creepy enough? Stuff it full of snakes.
5:48 Disembarking. Will return later.
6:23 10 minutes left. If they are blogged, it will be in a later post. I am bad at math.
“You haven’t missed much, but I have a houndstooth scarf now. Also, don’t try to save the world because I’m evil. That pretty much catches you up on what the family’s been up to while you were out.”
Although, knowing her, she’d probably react to it by writing a beautiful song about it with her husband instead of doing what Simone did, which was “Being really pretty for an episode or two and then getting shot.”
This task cannot be successfully completed unless Claude the invisible man is in the same room as the Ninth Doctor at some point and one of them comments how handsome the other one is.
I’m so glad I can hear him inviting his buddy to a Phillies game and to see his apartment louder than the guy announcing stops on the train.
Zach: “Too bad I didn’t get it. You jumped off a fucking three-story scaffolding, Claire, as soon as you jumped I stopped rolling and ran to see if you were okay. That’s what any sensible person would do.”
