This past weekend I watched the last three episodes of the season.
Wow. I’m a little speechless. I knew Steven Moffat would take the show in a different direction, but he’s taken it to a whole other level than it was at from the previous season. At least he’s keeping it fresh….and really, really spooky. That whole thing with the 80s/”The Shining” hotel was wicked creepy.
My mind is still kind of reeling and digesting the season. Splitting it up was kind of weird, and the way I watch it broken up even more makes it even harder to take it all in. I can’t wait to get the entire box set so that I can spend a whole week just reveling in all that is The Doctor. And yes, I do watch the “Doctor Who Confidential” bonus features. You should sign the petition to save that show!
But when one show ends, another one begins. My in-laws also DVR “Dexter” for my husband and I to watch. We caught up on the first two episodes. The first episode of the new season felt like a reboot and a nice reintroduction while the second felt like a second first episode of the season. Midway through the second episode I remarked how I already like this season better than the last. No more Rita no more Lumen. It’s back to Dexter being Dexter. The show feels like it’s gotten back to it’s core with the added bonus of a really great theme for Dexter to chew over. Oh and Deb is the new Lieutenant.
